Transformers #39 retailer incentive cover

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 05:12 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
B_MAx_8U8AADHTU You may recall from one of our earlier posts that the retailer incentive covers for Transformers #39 and Windblade #1 were something a bit special from IDW - each retailer participating in the incentive next month gets a cover showing their store either being protected by Superion (Transformers #39) or destroyed by Devastator (Windblade #1). We're told that in the end, six stores got in on this promotion.

Via Giant Robot Comics on Twitter, we have a look at one of the finished covers - this is the Transformers #39 cover. Decepticons in Dartmouth, Canada beware, because Giant Robot Comics is under the protection of Superion! Check it out, and a big thanks to TFW2005 member D-Drive for bringing this one to our attention.

More than Meets the Eye #38 Preview

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 03:00 AM by Sol Fury under Comics
TF_MTMTE_38-pr-page-001 IDW have sent out the previews for this week's comics and it's a double event! Here we have a preview of More than Meets the Eye #38 for you. The crew of the Lost Light's time-traveling adventure culminates at a point where you could say it all began - and the future is in the hands of one who "in response to a crisis of morale precipitated by his own woeful captaincy, introduced a reward system based on his own face" (Autobot Megatron is awesome!)

Transformers & More than Meets the Eye 38 Retailer Incentive Covers

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 03:00 AM by Sol Fury under Comics
TF_RiD38RI_cvr Along with IDW's Transformers comic previews this week we had a look at the retailer incentive covers to Transformers #38 and More than Meets the Eye #38. The pair of covers feature Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively, and are done in a simple yet striking style (we're thinking of some of the Acid Free prints by Tom Whalen for a similar style).

Check them out, and also be sure to check out the previews for this week's comics - it's a double bill of More than Meets the Eye and the title formerly known as Robots in Disguise!

Mairghread Scott and John Barber talk Combiner Wars

Posted on 02-27-2015 at 03:08 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
TF-Windblade01-CW-cvr-f30de Comic Book Resources have posted a new interview talking about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover with creators Mairghread Scott and John Barber.

A few of the key points of the interview include:
  • The Combiner Wars will be on two fronts - both an information war, a "war of influence", and a physical war. Starscream is at the heart of all of it, of course - with Optimus, Windblade and Prowl all being key players.
  • Superion has a few new moves - he's described as a cross between "an NBA star and Godzilla"
  • The seeds of Combiner Wars have been sown since Windblade first appeared in Dark Cybertron.
  • On an unrelated note, we'll also be seeing more Transformers of more body types - not only female characters but more diversity in general, more religions, creeds and classes.


Check out the full interview at Comic Book Resources, which includes some spoilers for the background of the crossover event.

IDW Transformers Comics for February 18 Delayed

Posted on 02-13-2015 at 01:48 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
STK662288_1416403319 Comic Book Resources passes on some news that IDW's comics due out February 18 - and potentially in following weeks - are liable to be delayed, due to an ongoing dispute that has led to the closure of ports in Long Beech, CA.

The report goes that due to the ongoing issues, there are unpredictable delays to all the titles due out next week from IDW in spite of their best efforts - digital releases will also be affected, as IDW attempts to keep both on the same shipping schedule.

The issues hit with the delay include both Transformers 38 and More than Meets the Eye 38, the Transformers Primacy trade paperback, and in a bitter twist of fate given the delays to Transformers: Legacy, the Transformers Animated Complete Allspark Almanac.

Scribd launches a "Netflix for comics"

Posted on 02-10-2015 at 06:13 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
Drift-Empire-Inks Courtesy of io9, we have this interesting tidbit of news. It seems that online ebook subscription service Scribd has struck a deal with comics publishers to essentially let them become "the Netflix for comics". According to io9, publishers including Marvel, Arcana, Archie, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, Kingstone, Space Goat, Top Cow, Valiant, and of course IDW have signed up to the deal.

While it is unclear what of the various company's entire publication histories will ultimately be available, it is reported that new books will be going up on the service roughly a month after their publication - not bad, for a monthly subscription, and we like the sound of the "binge" button (for when you discover a new title that you just have to read the next issue of, without exiting the reader). TFW member Thelonicon reports that presently some of the issues are in inconsistent places, and there are a few random omissions - hopefully hiccups that will be resolved as the service finds its feet.

Check out the full writeup on io9.

tfcw_mistressofflame The Mary Sue has just put up anew interview with Windblade and Combiner Wars writer Mairghread Scott. In it, she discusses and details both those series, and also reveals a brand new female character - the Mistress of Flame, an important figure in Camien society:

"In fact, we have an exclusive sneak peek at of one of the most important members of Camian society, the Mistress of Flame. The Mistress of Flame is the leader of the only faith on Caminus, The Way of Flame, which worships a female Prime said to be the mother of all Camiens. But fire can be as dangerous as it is helpful and the faith of Caminus burns hotter than any Cybertronian realizes."
