More than Meets the Eye Issue 14 Preview

TF_MTMTE_14_cvrA225x225-75

iTunes Books has put up a brief three-page preview of the next issue of Transformers More than Meets the Eye, out next Wednesday. There’s a fair amount of spoilers in this preview, even low-res as it is, so be warned if you want to go in to this issue. What we will share with you is this is a story which as writer James Roberts puts it, “gives one of the dominoes we’ve seen set up in the first 13 issues a little nudge, and sees where it all leads to”. It is also covering flashbacks to 4.2 million years ago and to the Last Stand of the Wreckers.

If that’s not enough, James Roberts has also stated this is the beginning of an eight-part story “in all sorts of ways”. You can check out more of his teaser comments on the IDW forums via this post here.

Be sure to check it out in all its glory this coming Wednesday!

    I'm hoping that Overlord clears out 50% of these guys. Roberts has been focusing relentlessly on the same characters for over a year now, it's time to see some new faceplates.

    Yeah, everyone from before 1985! I'm with you on that!

    There is a three page preview on iBooks. It's very hard to see what's going on, but there is a brief Prologue story that looks to be set in the distant past. The third page is back to the present.

    Heck yeah! He can chop up Hound, Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker, Hoist, Brawn, Grapple, Powerglide, Cosmos, Gears, Inferno, Huffer, Pipes, Smokescreen, Hell, maybe even Rachet.

    I wouldn't care at this point, IDW uses the majority of the '84 cast so infrequently that they might as well be dead.

    Roberts makes his characters seem more like humans than Transformers, so it's obvious he would rather write about people as opposed to robots. That being said, I think Roberts should replace Swerve and Whirl with Chip Chase and Abdul Fakkadi respectively. This next story arc would be an excellent opportunity to introduce them to the IDW universe.

    Cool...the prologue feels unsettling.

    Some weird looking dude with one eye - doesn't feel like a victim of Empurata, but a guy from a very different, higher order. In my mind he talks like the sniper drones from Fall of Cybertron

    Mysterious object, linked to the green flash?

    Another reference to 113.

    Chromedome is in Overlord's mind, reliving his memories. Kinda like Bumblebee did with Megatron in TF Prime.
