The end of the IDW Transformers universe as we know it proceeds in July, with the first two issues of the Unicron miniseries takes us on a tour of Unicron's dinner buffet, while the double-dose of Optimus Prime issues 21 and 22 carries on the story, Meanwhile, Lost Light #21 and #22 move toward wrapping up the story More Than Meets The Eye embarked on so long ago, and wrapping it up with something completely different, we've got the second issue of the Bumblebee Movie's prequel comic tie in with 60's spy action. And be warned before proceeding, there are spoilers present in the solicitations for this month's books! That, and cover previews can be found below.




Bleeding Cool's Rich Johnston has posted some SPOILERS for Unicron #0, the Free Comic Book Day issue intended to kick off the universe-concluding event for IDW's Transformers/shared Hasbro universe. The excerpt concerns the origins of the Spaceknights and their armor, and how it all serves to closer tie together the already closely-aligned IDW comics. Keep reading only if you want part of Unicron #0 spoiled for you!




Per Newsarama, Hasbro Group Editor Sarah Gaydos, who took the job after John Barber stepped down from his editorial duties at IDW in 2016, is moving to a newly-created job at Oni Press. Gaydos will become the Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing at Oni shortly, apparently leaving IDW without a Hasbro Group Editor in the wake of the Unicron universe-ending event. Which honestly makes us even more anxious to see what comes after that. Keep reading for more details.




IDW have updated the listings on their website for the upcoming issues 17 and 18 of Optimus Prime to finally show off the main covers for the issues, both featuring the art of regular interior artist Kei Zama. These issues continue on the storyline of "The Falling", with the return of Onyx Prime. We've previously seen variant covers for these issues as part of their initial solicitation, but this marks our first look at the "A" covers for each. Click through now to get a good look at both!




IDW writers James Roberts and John Barber both confirmed on Twitter yesterday that IDW will continue to publish Transformers comics in a new continuity once the upcoming Unicron series closes out the first IDW universe. What shape that new universe will take is currently unknown, as is who will be writing it - but IDW Transformers comics will continue, and that sounds like good news to us. Keep reading!




Newsarama has posted an IDW press release that have shown us the exact shape of Unicron - literally and figuratively! Featuring the first image of IDW Unicron by artist Alex Milne, the series is also revealed as a 6-issue biweekly series beginning in July - and one that will mark the end of IDW's continuity as we know it. Read on for details!




Previews World has posted the latest round of comic solicits, taking us in to the summer. Notable on the block this month is the return of IDW's movie continuity tie in comics, once again written by John Barber and to feature interior art by Andrew Griffith. This time out it's a prequel to the Bumblebee movie, noted as being aimed at younger readers. Apart from that, we have the usual Optimus Prime and two Lost Light issues, plus some trades including a complete collection of the Wreckers titles. Keep reading for all the solicits and (a few) cover previews!




Over on the Free Comic Book Day website, writer John Barber and artist Alex Milne have given an interview about their FCBD offering, Unicron #0! Barber outright calls Unicron "the end of the story we've been telling for over a decade," and touts the involvement of all of IDW's current TF writers in the planning of the story. Keep reading for an excerpt about Unicron #0, and a link to the full interview where Milne & Barber talk about what comics mean to them!




Comic Crusaders has released the last of the current crop of comic previews for the weekend, capping us off with the Optimus Prime 2018 Annual in which Thundercracker might just finally get to make a movie! The Annual will be in stores on February 28th, and you can read the preview in the gallery below right now! THUNDERCRACKER IN: STARSCREAM: THE MOVIE! The good news: somebody finally gave Thundercracker money to make a film. The bad news: it's Starscream, and he wants a biographical picture to win over the people of Earth.

The website Adventures in Poor Taste has posted the preview for next week's release of Transformers vs Visionaries #3, bringing us to the halfway point in the latest Hasbro universe crossover event.

PREVIEWSworld has posted artist Marcelo Matere's retailer incentive cover for the upcoming Optimus Prime #16! Matere has been a prolific artist on the Hasbro side, and while he's worked on Transformers comics before, it's been a while. Good to see him back! Keep reading to see both the cover, and the inks for the cover which Matere shared on Twitter.




On the same day that issue 13 has hit shops, IDW have themselves released the short three-page early preview for next month's issue 14 through their website, offering the first look at the next chapter in the story of the Scavengers - but first, a flashback! Check out the full preview mirrored in the gallery below! MACGUFFIN QUEST! The Scavengers have never had it so good. The war is a receding memory, their patchy service records have been forgotten, and the five of them can roam the galaxy as they please. All’s well that ends well? Not quite. Because unbeknownst to Krok and Co., their next adventure... will be their last.
