UNICRON REVEALED: More Details, 'Grand Finale' To 12 Years Of IDW Continuity
RAC - Saturday, March 24, 2018


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!
SAN DIEGO, CA (March 24th, 2018) – The fate of all worlds are at stake, as the world-eating menace Unicron has set his sights on Cybertron, home of the TRANSFORMERS robots, and next in line… EARTH! A bi-weekly six issue event titled TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON arrives this July and will bring about the end of the TRANSFORMERS universe as we know it. As Optimus Prime gathers his defense against this monstrous threat, it might be too little too late.

Veteran TRANSFORMERS creators John Barber (Optimus Prime) and Alex Milne (More Than Meets The Eye) are joined by colorist Sebastian Cheng (Revolution) to tell the epic conclusion to the current TRANSFORMERS comic book universe.

“TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON is a culmination of the years of TRANSFORMERS comics I've been a part of... and the conclusion of one of the longest continued narrative in TRANSFORMERS history” said Barber. “This is a story of heroism in the face of impossible odds; of a reckoning for an entire universe. I couldn't be luckier than to have Alex [Milne] right here with me on this—if you know Alex, you know nobody puts more into the TRANSFORMERS than he does, and nowhere before has he drawn drama, action, and pathos at this scale. Tying it all together is the incredible palette of Sebastian Cheng. We've never held back before on our TRANSFORMERS comics, but this time we're pushing ourselves—and each other—harder than ever.”

TRANSFORMERS mainstays from the past 12 years will be providing variant covers for the series, including Andrew Griffith, Nick Roche, and many more. Additionally, legendary comic artist Bill Sienkiewicz will be reinterpreting his classic cover to TRANSFORMERS #1 as a special variant, along with a new cover by Francesco Francavilla.

“TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON is a grand finale to the past 12 years of TRANSFORMERS comics at IDW and to really celebrate that and to celebrate the people who have made it such an amazing ride, we’re getting some amazing, beloved artists to contribute to what I'm sure will be our biggest—literally—TRANSFORMERS story ever,” said David Mariotte, Associate Editor. “This is an event years in the making and one that only works because of the years fans and creators have invested in the comic.”

The action kicks off on Free Comic Book Day, May 5th, with the #0 issue by the series creative; available for free at comic shops across the country. Don’t miss the world-ending first chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic event!

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.
Two issues in one week! The Falling continues with "Chapter 3: The Ground" and "Interlude: The First Who Was Named," both written by John Barber and lettered by Tom B. Long. "The Ground" has art by Kei Zama with colors by Josh Burcham and "Interlude" has art by Sara-Pitre Durocher and Livio Ramondelli, with colors on Pitre-Durocher's pages by Burcham. This review does not contain the major spoiler for Optimus Prime #17 that can be seen in the Issue #18 preview! It's safe to read, so click here to do so!
Facebook group TFND has posted official photos of Power of the Primes Leader class Nemesis Prime! Probably destined to be an exclusive, Nemesis Prime comes with a sword which transforms into a bird companion named Giza - the name of Transformers Prime Nemesis Prime's Arms Micron! We also get our first look at the "Orion Pax" inner robot, whose name and/or true identity are not currently known... but that's sure not Pax's head. Keep reading!
Following the report of implausibly cheap trypticons at Ollie's Bargain Outlet in Florida over the weekend, we have some possible clarification on the issue. An individual identified as aurora51 reports finding Trypticon at a Nashville area Ollie's, however in this case they were priced at approximately $50 each. Whether it's a case of pricing varying by stores, or more likely a one-off employee error resulting in the now legendary $13 Trypticon, the reality is that while a good deal is still to be had, it not as good as we thought yesterday.
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!
