Windblade-05

Thanks to Comic Book Resources, we have an interview to pass along featuring the IDW Windblade team of writer Mairghread Scott and artist Corin Howell. The interview discusses the events of Combiner Wars, the fallout of that crossover, and what’s next for Windblade. The interview also dives into the introduction of a few characters into the IDW storylines.

If you haven’t finished reading the Combiner Wars storyline, play it safe and skip the interview for some minor spoilers.

Enjoy the interview and be sure to pick up your IDW Transformers comics!

Thanks to artist Priscilla Tramontano’s webpage, we’ve got our first look at the cover art to IDW’s Windblade #6 issue. The cover, which is a stunning piece of art, features Windblade and Chromia with weapons in hand staring into the horizon as a beast creature flies off.  The big question is who is the beast creature?

One more listing from Amazon.com, also for a release in December 2015! This time we have a listing for a collected edition of the Robots in Disguise series, based on the new cartoon. This trade paperback, titled “A New Mission”, is clocking in at 136 pages long, which by our estimate would mean it covers the first 6 issues of the series, plus the Free Comic Book Day issue. As before, there is no cover art on this one, yet – watch this space for more news.

Transformers VS GI Joe 3 Cover

Here is a listing which may interest some. Amazon.com has posted up a new listing for a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover trade, due to be published in December 2015.

This trade is titled “Tyrants rise, Heroes are born”, and it carries the brief description of “Reprints the fan-favorite series set in World War II. Cobra Commander unleashes Megatron and the United States creates the G.I. JOE team to combat him.

Based on the description, this sounds like a reprint of the Dreamwave Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover miniseries – given it is presently the only such crossover to have taken place in World War II. This series was known for its dark, gritty feel – almost excessively so – and was one of a series of crossovers between the two franchises made in the early 2000s, the others being ones published by the then G.I. Joe rights holders, Devil’s Due, which were the ones that had the Autobots and Decepticons adopting alternate forms based on G.I. Joe vehicles.

There’s no cover artwork yet – so attached to this post, we have one of the original covers from the first Dreamwave publication of this miniseries. You can find out a bit more about the series in our Comics Resources section.
