Nick Roche took to Twitter today, showing various snippets of art from recent works. Among these were lineart in both pencil and ink stages for his alternate cover to More Than Meets The Eye 36, due in shops this December. "Sad Prime" as Nick calls it, represents a younger days Optimus Prime, and going by the solicitation blurb and the main cover art, seems like it may be something of a followup to the Orion Pax focused "Shadowplay" story arc from MTMTE's first season. Click through to check out both pieces of art!
WHEELJACK REBORN! After months unconscious, WHEELJACK awakens to find a strange, new CYBERTRON! STARSCREAM rules -- OPTIMUS PRIME has made peace with MEGATRON -- and WINDBLADE controls the city. What's a scientist to do... but uncover the greatest mystery in TRANSFORMERS history?
Sarah Stone has shared the "clean" version of the third of her 30th Anniversary retailer incentive Transformers covers. Running as an alternate for Robots in Disguise 33 - scheduled to ship Wednesday the 24th - this cover calls back to Last Stand of The Wreckers, prominently featuring Ironfist. Sarah posted a quick note along with the cover art on her tumblr. Keep reading for the full size image and check out what she had to say about it!
We've got the latest solicitations from IDW for Transformers titles coming up this December! Due out at the end of the year are issues 36 of both More Than Meets The Eye and The Transformers
, formerly Robots in Disguise, as well as issue 5 of Transformers vs GI Joe, issue 2 of Drift: Empire of Stone, and the first collection volume of Transformers vs GI Joe, and volume 6 of More Than Meets The Eye. Check out the blurbs and cover previews below!
IDW has provided the full preview for this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye. This one is unusually spoily as to the nature of what's been going on during this storyline, so please be aware before clicking through to read these preview pages if you want to wait and have the mystery revealed when the full issue hits shops this Wednesday!
Finally, Previews has lineart-stage pages from the first issue of the Angry Birds/Transformers crossover miniseries. Not as far along as the other early looks, this still shows a taste of what the visual end of this book is about, presumably from the portion of the book not illustrated by Livio Ramondelli. Keep reading to see all three pages.
Previews has been given three pages from the first issue of the upcoming Drift focused miniseries, Empire of Stone. Much like the Transformers 35 preview, no dialogue has been added to this, letting you see the full page art in an otherwise finished, colored state. If you've been looking for the return of Drift since his wrongful dismissal from the Lost Light last year, this may be the title for you when it ships later this year!
The book formerly subtitled Robots in Disguise is set to become simply The Transformers, and so we have via a Previews feature article three pages from the upcoming issue 35 which, while having no dialogue added yet, show an operation over Earth seemingly overseen by Prowl. This issue is due to hit in mid-November, so we still have a while before proper previews hit, but for now enjoy the clean art!
