Small AHM #7 Update

Written by Big Bot on November 4, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: ,

All Hail megatron writer Shane McCarthy has posted a small update for issue #7 of the series, having now seen the sketches from Guido.

I’ve just recieved the initial sketches for a double page spread in AHM #7 that, seriously, may cause actual bodily harm to anyone that reads it.

You’ve been warned.

Guido is the man.  Either that or just an astonishing freak of nature.

Enjoy the wait.

SDCC 08: Shane McCarthy Blog Updates

Shane McCarthy has updated his blog with news on some of IDW’s new Transformers books. A brand new character will be appearing in IDW’s All Hail Megatron series, called Drift. All that is needed is final confirmation from Hasbro.

Also on his blog is the cover for All Hail Megatron #4 by Trevor Hutchison. The simple design is meant to convey “sorrow, solitude and defeat”. The issue will be out in August.

Spotlight: Blurr Confirmed

After IDW Editor-in-chief Chris Ryall posted a teaser for the next Spotlight issue, lots of guesses were submitted and one character seemed more popular than others, Blurr. Well, it turned out to be true, with the fastest talker in the universe being confirmed in his own Spotlight issue in December.

The issue will be written by Shane McCarthy with art from Casey Coller and colours by Joana Lafuente. The cover and first 3 pages can be found below:
