D-Drive dropped by to share with us the next Diamond Distribution list. On the cards for Transformers comics next week is the Transformers Spotlight Drift hardcover, collecting the four-issue origin miniseries and the Spotlight issue for the Autobot Drift, a major player in the More than Meets the Eye series! Speaking of More than Meets the Eye, D-Drive wanted to let everyone know that the next issue is coming out on 6 February.


TRANSFORMERS COMPLETE DRIFT HC

(W) Shane McCarthy (A) Alex Milne, Casey Coller (CA) Trevor Hutchinson
Drift gets the deluxe upgrade as the four-issue mini-series plus the Spotlight issue is collected in this hard cover oversized edition. Once a DECEPTICON, Drift now fights alongside the AUTOBOTS in the ongoing Civil War. How he came to be here, why he was once known as DEADLOCK, and how he came to be at odds with his DECEPTICON allies is revealed.

Soo... no new fiction in the Drift HC I take it?
It would have been mentioned in that blurb otherwise right?
Chris McFeely
February for MTMTE. Told yer. Bit more surprised that Rage of the Dinobots is late too, though.
Jalaguy
A hardback of just five issues with (apparently) no significant bonus content? Seems like a bizarre choice... I mean, LSOTW was five issues, but a good third of the hardback was bonus material.
Chris McFeely
Never forget that Drift is awesome and that you love him.

Yes, you.

YOU.

I like Drift he is my favorite Autobot character from the TRANSFORMERS comics.
Jalaguy
The bonus content is a 30-page essay on why Drift is your favourite Transformers character and 30 pages of new art of Drift posing with swords, with katakana and red lines in the background.

The 'Drift' TPB is 104 pages. Spotlight Drift is 32 pages. Complete Drift HC is 152 pages. That leaves 16 pages unaccounted for. My guess is an introduction of some kind and a cover/art gallery. Unless the Drift TPB already had said gallery, and thus maybe there is some bonus fiction in there?


Edit: I looked up the TPB, and it did indeed have a gallery...so there's 16 pages of who-knows-what, apparently...
Cadbane
I am going to preorder this! hope the bouns content is a surprise
Protoman
I am totally game for this. This was Milne's first G1 foray outside of Megatron Origin and a staple of his talent.
General Tekno
I have to agree - I enjoyed this story. Curious what those additional pages are.

Really hope the bonus content is something sweet, like some short comics, a commentary, or even some Roberts prose.

Yeah.. I checked my trade too.. if there is new fiction in those 16 pages, I'll buy it.

Forgot to mention, too, that I've had mine on pre-order at Amazon since it was announced, and I got an e-mail the other day saying it's expected delivery is Feb. 14th (shipping on the 12th).

It was announced on Facebook yesterday that 'Complete Drift' is going to be getting the IDW Limited treatment with Alex Milne providing original artwork, for those interested. No other details yet.

Just got my copy in the mail from Amazon...has a red cover with a black silhouette of Drift...pretty much the same basic style as the LSotW and AHM hardcovers. The extras includes a cover gallery and some sketches...no foreword or anything. A little bit of a letdown, but it's still a gorgeous book.

So no new comic pages or short stories like in the glorious Wreckers book.. damn. Guess I'll skip it then.
GreyFox787
Yeah, nothing new to my knowledge. No short stories or character profiles; nothing like Wreckers got. I guess it's not too surprising, considering it isn't as big a deal as Wreckers was...but still...
