    Here are the Transformers related items coming out in June

    ----------

    Transformers: The Movie Adaptation #1
    Kris Oprisko (w); Alex Milne (a)

    Kicking off a month-long spectacular event to celebrate the July 4 opening of the big-screen TRANSFORMERS movie! The official adaptation of Transformers: The Movie picks up directly where the Movie Prequel leaves off—the TRANSFORMERS’ brutal war has come to Earth and perhaps our only chance for survival may be with the young boy who just might hold the key to ending the war forever. Each issue of the adaptation will offer 32 ad-free pages and include concept art, interviews, and additional never-before-seen material. Subsequent issues of the official adaptation of Transformers: The Movie will be released on a weekly schedule throughout the month of June. Issue 1 features a special wraparound cover by interior artist Alex Milne (The Transformers: Megatron Origin)! Issue 1 will be in stores on June 6.

This special 8-1/2" x 11" magazine format contains stories from the early Marvel days (issue #42, "People Power"), days to the Dreamwave (Generation 1, Vol. 3, #1) adventures to the all-new chapters of TRANSFORMERS lore from IDW (Stormbringer #1), all underneath a brand-new cover from artist Robby Musso (Transformers Spotlight: Ultra Magnus). This collection is a true treasure for long time fans as well as an excellent introduction for new fans.

    The saga of the Transformers' secret war on Earth—begun in The Transformers: Infiltration—continues with Phase Two: Escalation.

Su present the next chapter of their masterful TRANSFORMERS tale.

    My bad, I didn't look back far enough and i did a search only for 'solicit' (you have soliciation :p  ), plus the timestamp on IDWs website was 30 minutes ago so I figured it was new.

    Lock please.

    They're reprinting TARGET: 2006 'individually'? That may be worth my time. I wonder if it'll be US or (the original) UK sized paper?

    The "Best of..." Simon Furman sounds a little poe faced though. If it includes his first work for the UK comic I'll be disappointed that the early Marvel UK stuff NOT written by him is once again being ignored.

    I'll definately be buying the Movie adaptation too, as it'll be a nice companion to the prequel series.
