So, I'm just scanning the lists for books out next week to get the previews ready and I noticed that IDW has the weekly 1-4 issues starting June 6th but they also have a TP coming out June 6th as well. They both have the same writer and artist (according to Graham Cracker Comics - Midtown also lists both items out next week). What's the point of the individual issues if the trade is coming? I doubt they would have different art for the same material.... by the same artist.... If they are the same, wouldn't the trade cut into the sales of the individual issues? Here's the solicit for both: Transformers: Movie Adaptation TP Kris Oprisko (w); Alex Milne (a) Our world. Their war. The long-awaited Transformers movie is upon us, and now you can catch the entire saga in comic book form right here! Picking up directly where the Movie Prequel leaves off, this adaptation of the big-screen blockbuster sees the TRANSFORMERS bring the brutal war to our world, putting all of mankind at risk. Our salvation depends on the burgeoning friendship between a robot from beyond the stars and a young boy whi just might hold the key to ending the war forever. Also includes a photo and character gallery, comic book cover gallery, and more. Transformers 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.
