Courtesy of Newsarama, we have a full length preview of next week’s new issue of Transformers! Transformers #48 carries on the ongoing “Conquerors” story arc with what is promising to be a bit more of an offbeat tail featuring the tech drone DOC and Thundercracker’s puppy, Buster, in the starring roles! Check out the full length preview attached to this post to get yourself fired up for the new issue when it arrives next week!
TFW2005 member D-Drive has shared the Diamond Comics shipping list for next week, December 2nd, with us. Next week brings Transformers #48 along with boxed sets of trade paperbacks covering the first two years of More Than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise!
Read on for the full solicit details.
Amazon has listed a new trade paperback, due for a release in April 2016. This paperback is titled “Transformers Distant Stars” and is set to collect the remaining issues of the Windblade miniseries that were not collected in the Combiner Wars paperback – that’s issues 4-7 of Windblade Volume 2 – as well as the Combiner Hunters one-shot. The full release date is given as 21 April 2016, though there is currently no cover art for this collected edition. We’ll update you when more on this and all Transformers comics news comes to our knowledge.
It’s almost time! Next Wednesday will see the release of the first issue of IDW’s Sins of the Wreckers – Nick Roche’s highly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed Last Stand of the Wreckers. Prowl has been kidnapped, and with him goes all of the dirtiest secrets the Autobots hold. It’s up to the Wreckers to get him back! This full length preview care of Newsarama shows off the initial setup of the issue and introduces us to two of the main groups of characters involved in the story – be sure to check it out, and pick up the full issue when it arrives on Wednesday!
Apple’s iBooks has posted up a three-page preview for Transformers #48. As the third part of “Conquerors” kicks off, we get to enjoy at least part of the tale through the eyes of DOC. Is he just a drone, or something more? What measure is a sentient? We just might get some insight in this issue as the tale continues! Check out the three-page preview after the break.
Previews World has updated with the February 2016 Solicitations from IDW Publishing. The Transformers enter their 50th issue marks here so lots of good stuff await those who are fans of the comic series! At this time, there is no listing for Sins of the Wreckers, but when the solicitation becomes available we will update. In the meantime, check out the full list of solicitations but beware potential spoilers!
