iBooks has posted its latest three-page comic preview, this time for IDW Publishing’s Optimus Prime #10! On the eve of Earth’s formally joining the Council of Worlds, Optimus, Pyra Magna, and Starscream all gather to hear a tale from Alpha Trion: the origin of the Autobot symbol. It’s another story of Galvatron the barbarian in the era of the 13 Primes, and you can check out the pages–as well as a first look at Kei Zama’s cover for the issue–after the break, and then pick the issue up on August 30.
After some delays, the third and final issue of Tiny Titans co-creator Art Balatazar’s look at the Hasbro universe is finally set for release on August 23. Courtesy of iBooks, we have a three-page preview for the comic, as it’s G.I. Joe, Rom, and the Micronauts vs. Cobra and their latest recruit: Optimus Prime! Check it out after the break!
Multiversity Comics has posted the full preview for IDW Publishing’s Revolutionaries #7, due for release on August 16. This issue revolves around time-displaced war hero Sergeant Savage, as we flashback to not only when he was transported from the 1940s to the 1990s, but also witness his arrival in the modern era. The Revolutionaries are one step closer to figuring out the history of the mysterious Talisman–assuming they can survive Savage’s barrage of ’90s lingo. Check out the pages after the break!
IDW Publishing is hosting an AMA session on Reddit, allowing readers to ask questions of the creators of the publisher’s First Strike crossover event, as well as other creatives from its Hasbro universe comics. In attendance are: First Strike writers Mairghread Scott and David Rodriguez, First Strike artist Max Dunbar, Optimus Prime writer and Rom vs. Transformers co-writer John Barber, Rom and Rom vs. Transformers co-writer Christos Gage, and G.I. Joe writer Aubrey Sitterson. If you have any burning questions for any of these IDW creatives, now is the time to ask!
Our second iBooks preview of the night is for Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #2, scheduled for release on August 23. Rather than picking up from the first issue’s cliffhanger ending, this one starts off with a flashback to few weeks prior, showing how the unholy alliance between Starscream and the Dire Wraiths was born. Check out the two villainous forces conspiring together in the pages after the break!
Apple’s iBooks has posted a three-page preview for First Strike #2, the next issue in IDW’s latest Hasbro universe crossover. Investigating Baron Ironblood’s base, G.I. Joe finds itself under attack by the Red Shadows! Read the pages after the break, and then pick the issue up on August 23.
Apple’s iBooks has posted the three-page preview for IDW Publishing’s Till All Are One #12, the final issue of the series. Windblade continues her battle with Vigilem for control of her mind, only to receive some unexpected aid! Check it out for yourself after the break, and then pick up the series finale on August 9.
Just ahead of the issue’s release tomorrow, CBR has released the five-page preview for IDW Publishing’s Lost Light #8. It’s ladies night out as Nautica, Velocity, Anode, and Lug explore the markets of the planet Troja Major. How long before they find trouble? Not long at all, as you can see in the preview pages after the break!
This week’s Optimus Prime #9 had a special bonus included with digital copies of the issue: an ashcan preview for the first five pages of Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #1! While the full issue won’t be released until July 19, in this preview we learn more of the first Cybertronian to join the Solstar Order, Stardrive–including how she first met Rom and her growing up under the Order’s care. Check out the preview pages, provided by TFW2005 board member Lucas35, after the break!
Following yesterday’s Lost Light preview, iBooks has also provided a preview for IDW Publishing’s Revolutionaries #6. Unlike most of the iBooks previews, this only contains two story pages and a character cast page, although interesting developments are afoot in those pages as the Revolutionaries call in Matt Trakker and Gloria Baker of M.A.S.K. to search for Mike Power, the Atomic Man. You can read the pages for yourself after the break, and then pick the issue up on its scheduled release date of July 26.
