The Future of IDW Transformers Comics – Whats Coming?

Written by Big Bot on July 12, 2009 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: , ,

IDW Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall recently appeared on the radio, and answered some questions about IDW Publishing’s future plans for the Transformers brand. He has also answered some questions in this thread on the IDW forum.

In November, IDW will release Transformers Continuum,which will bring all readers up to speed on IDW’s Transformers comics released so far, which is an idea many fans have recommended for a long time. It isn’t know if this is one issue or a series.

Also be on the look out for the San Diego Comic-Con in 2 weeks, which will have 3 Transformers announcements, 2 of which will come as a big surprise and one that fans feel they already know about. I’ll let you speculate on what these may be.

There will also be some “movie news”, which probably consists of the next movie comic, Tales of the Fallen.

Final Coloured Version of Auto Assembly 2009 Exclusive Cover for AHM #13

The Transformers: All Hail Megatron #13 Auto Assembly 2009 Exclusive CoverIDW Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall has posted the final coloured version of the Auto Assembly 2009 Exclusive cover for IDW’s The Transformers: All Hail Megatron #13.

You find the cover has improved colour contrast compared to when it was last seen, the Apocalypse Comics website (who helped get the cover done), and Grimlock saying something that only Grimlock would say. The cover is limited to 1000 copies with a maximum of 2 sold to each attendee at Auto Assembly 2009 in August.

The cover has art from Nick Roche with colours from Liam Shalloo.

All Hail Megatron #13 is due out next month. Look out for #12 later this week.

IDW Comic Releases – 17/12/08

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hype starts this week, with the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Prequel: Alliance #1, the first of the movie prequels, coming from The Reign of Starscream team of Chris Mowry and Alex Milne.

The issue takes place between the events of The Reign of Starscream and the events of the film, so is essential reading for all!

The official prequel to next summer’s “TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN” film kicks off here! “TRANSFORMERS: DESTINY” is comprised of two four-part stories covering events leading up to the film. In the first chapter of the DESTINY story arc, ”ALLIANCE,” readers will learn more about what happened to SECTOR SEVEN, what happened to the AUTOBOTS, and why their war on our planet is far from over.

Chris Ryall has put up the 3 covers, which show the new logo and layout for the covers, as well as what looks like a new IDW logo.

IDW Comic Releases – 12/11/08

Written by Big Bot on November 10, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags:

Just one new release this week, with this being Transformers: Animated The Arrival #4, again featuring 2 stories set in the Animated universe.

BULKHEAD is up in arms (or is it servos?) over a gas-guzzling “megavan” created by corporate slimeball Porter C. Powell. Also, DECEPTICON bounty hunter LOCKDOWN searches for “the AUTOBOT who put MEGATRON offline” and stumbles into a surprising and dangerous encounter along the way.

The other Transformers comic this week is the 2nd printing of The Transformers: Megatron Origin TPB, which was originally released in December 2007, and is set early on in the IDW G1 universe.

Chris Ryall has posted the 3 covers for Arrival #4.

New E.J. Su Art – What is it?

Written by Big Bot on November 7, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: ,

Chris Ryall has posted some new art from longtime Transformers artist E.J. Su, a cover from a mysterious future issue.

The inks cover shows Jazz and Razorclaw battling it out with destroyed buildings around them. The only other clue to the issue is that it is coming out in March 09, which means it is unlikely to be an IDW main series, and more likely a Spotlight issue.

IDW Transformers Comic Releases – 29/10/08

Written by Big Bot on October 27, 2008 | Armada,Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: , ,

Time for a blast from the recent past, with the reprint of Dreamwave’s Transformers Armada Volume 1 TPB, collecting issues #1-6 of the series.

The comic takes the story in a different direction to the cartoon, so is worth picking up if you cannot stand the animated series. The book is drawn by James Raiz and written by Chris Sarracini.

Chris Ryall again has the cover for your viewing pleasure.
