January Transformers Comics From IDW Released - Transformers 3 Villain Teased!

IDW Publishing has released the solicitations for their January Transformers comics, and we have some goodies in here. Aside from Foundation, one of the official prequel comic book series of Transformers: The Dark of the Moon, January brings Rise of the Storm, the second official prequel series.

The cover released by IDW teases a silhouette view of Shockwave, the main antagonist of the third film, with the word "Classified" plastered over it.

To avoid spoiling anything huge so far ahead of the film's release, IDW has blocked the full look, just like they did for the redesigned Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Megatron in one of that film's official prequel comic books.
