IDW Publishing has posted to its Instagram the complete cover artwork that veteran Transformers artist James Raiz has contributed to its Unicron miniseries. As shown in previous comic solicitations, this art’s going to be separated into the six-issue miniseries’s B covers, although it’s nice to have a good look at what the complete image looks like! As expected of the grand finale to IDW’s current Transformers continuity, the art features a ton of characters, including Optimus Prime, Windblade, and Starscream, with other characters from the Hasbro comic universe such as G.I. Joe and the Micronauts in the mix as well. You can check out a larger look at the image after the break, and then sound off on the TFW2005 message board!
One day after the release of the issue’s iBooks preview, Multiversity Comics has released a five-page preview for IDW Publishing’s Optimus Prime #17, due for release on April 18. “The Falling” continues as Optimus deals with the fatal repercussions of a bombing on Cybertron, and the accusations that Onyx Prime has hurled at Soundwave. At the same time on Earth, as Aileron reflects on her past, she and the other Autobots receive a little shock of their own. Check it all out after the break!
Previews World has posted two new covers for February’s Lost Light #15. The covers put a heavy emphasis on the return of Scorponok after his being largely absent from the IDW Publishing continuity for the past several years, as Nick Roche’s Cover B shows the classic Decepticon putting the squeeze on both Misfire and Fulcrum. Meanwhile, Brendan Cahill’s retailer incentive cover focuses on a clash of titans as Scorponok goes up against his most fearsome opponent yet… Nickel? Time will tell if these fights are going to be as one-sided as they seem, but until the issue’s February release, you can check out the gorgeous covers after the break!
Another comic preview for today comes straight from Newsarama, as they bring us the first six pages of next week’s Optimus Prime #15; this issue features not just the return of Onyx Prime, but also artist Kei Zama! The Mistress of Flame recalls her first encounter with the legendary Onyx Prime, while she meets with another one of the Thirteen Primes on present-day Cybertron. It’s the first part of “The Falling,” a story arc that looks to be a culmination of many of John Barber’s Transformers comic plotlines, and you can pick it up on January 17! But before then, check the pages out after the break.
