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!
TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE MOVIE PREQUEL #1
(W) John Barber (A/CA) Andrew Griffith
Some call him Goldfender, but the name's Bee... Bumblebee. On loan to MI6 and teamed with a human partner, Bee's trapped in the middle of a Cold War plot to disrupt British Secret Intelligence. But when things go wrong, it's up to Bee to discover if there's a traitor in their midst. In the spy world, allegiances can change just as easily as a Transformer.
*The prequel to the new Bumblebee film (coming this winter), geared toward a younger audience!
