IDW Transformers Solicits for July 2015

Posted on 04-21-2015 at 05:40 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
More-than-Meets-the-Eye-43-Sub-Cover IDW have sent out their solicits for July 2015. July is set to bring us lots of great new books, including the debut of a comic based on the new Robots in Disguise animated series! This book joins the ongoing Transformers, More than Meets the Eye, and Windblade titles.

This month also features a Combiner Wars epilogue issue, titled Combiner Hunters. As well as being the issue where the Fan-Built Combiner will make their debut in the IDW universe, the cover art shows us Chromia, Windblade, and Arcee, all in alternate designs to their usual decos - could these three be hints at some possible upcoming toys?

Check out the solicits after the break, with the respective covers attached to this post.

Transformers Windblade #2 Retailer Incentive Cover & Preview

Posted on 04-21-2015 at 10:00 AM by Sol Fury under Comics
Windblade-CW-2-03 IDW has released a preview of the new issue of Transformers: Windblade, hitting comic stores tomorrow. The preview does not feature any more pages of content compared to the iTunes preview we previously saw, but you can check out the recap and roll-call (which amusingly refers to Prowl's function as "Prowl", you know you're on to something when you can only be described in terms of yourself... )

That being said, we do also have the alternate covers to this issue to share with you, including a very nice retailer incentive cover showing Superion in flight. There's also the subscription variant cover, which shows Prowlastator bearing down on a wounded Defensor (who is shown in the Transformers #40 sub cover, the two combine to make a larger piece of art)

Check out the covers, and the preview, attached to this post.

Transformers IDW Collection Phase 2 Volume 2 Cover

Posted on 04-04-2015 at 02:53 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
81zKMRR5ymL On the subject of Transformers comics and awesome artwork, Amazon has updated its listing for the IDW Collection Phase 2 Volume 2 hardcover with cover artwork. It's an awesome piece by Sarah Stone showing Bumblebee, with his yellow paintwork flaking off - perhaps symbolic of Bumblebee's situation in the early issues of the Robots in Disguise ongoing!

Due in August 2015, Transformers the IDW Collection Phase 2 Volume 2 collects the Autocracy miniseries, Robots in Disguise issues #7-9, More than Meets the Eye issues #6-8, and the Spotlights Orion Pax, Trailcutter, and Hoist - the latter two potentially inserted into their correct spot in the More than Meets the Eye timeline!

DJD-MTME-39-Cover Artist Sara Pitre-Durocher and IDW on Tumblr have both shared the retailer incentive cover for next week's new issue of More than Meets the Eye. More than Meets the Eye #39's incentive cover features the full lineup of the five member Decepticon Justice Division! This is one incredible piece of artwork which we hope will be offered as a print down the line - perhaps at one of the summer conventions such as Botcon, TFcon, or Auto Assembly?
