If the previous preview from Chris Ryall hasn’t convinced you to purchase Transformers: The Ark II this week, maybe this new preview from IDW Editor Denton J. Tipton will.

On his blog, he has posted 5 pages from the book, including the contents page, which should give you an idea of the material that will be included in the 208 page guide. There is also a clean, high resolution version of the cover by Nick Roche.

Artist for Maximum Dinobots Revealed

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

In an interview with Denton J. Tipton, Editor at IDW, he lets out that Nick Roche is working with Simon Furman on the series set after Transformers Revelation, but before All Hail Megatron, Maximum Dinobots.

9. Also what kind of story would you like to get published if you had total freedom (unused character one-shot, Japanese stuff…)?

Probably Simon Furman doing a Dinobots miniseries with Nick Roche. Oh, wait. I already get to do that! Did I mention that I have a great job?

Beast Wars Sourcebook Errors Needed

Over the last couple of months, IDW have released the four part series, Beast Wars Sourcebooks, which bring together characters from Beast wars, Beast Wars II and Beast wars Neo and give them profiles. Unfortunately, the books weren’t a complete success, with text and colouring errors as well as complaints from fans that the images were too small and incomplete and that the profiles didn’t make the characters unique enough.

New IDW Editor Denton J. Tipton has posted on the IDW forums asking for a complete list of errors in the books so that they can be corrected for the TPB release. Dan Khanna will be helping with colour corrections, with the added bonus that some extra artwork will be included as well as the missing glossary. Ben Yee will also be involved.

So if you want a more complete and accurate collection, get involved.
