Joe team as they face off against the Red Shadows. Also in this preview: Destro VS Optimus Prime. Sort of.

Amazon has added a new preorder for a new Transformers collected Trade Paperback. This time, it’s for our beloved Dinobots. “Redemption of The Dinobots” will collect three Dinobot featured IDW stories in one book. Here’s the official description:
Explore the Dinobots like never before! Three stories chronicling the intense violence and redemption that have shaped the Transformers’ most famous Autobot squad. It’s a rollercoaster of death and absolution, drenched in atmosphere and action.
John Barber and Livio Ramondelli craft three stories focused on the Dinobots–a group of dinosaur-mode Autobots with a dark history and many sins to atone for. These stories’ dark tone, intense plot, and epic cinematic scope explore the Dinobot’s powerful dynamic and give these characters a chance to escape the cycle of violence that fuels their missions on Cybertron and beyond!
First, in Punishment, Optimus Prime and Windblade team up to stop a killer, but do they really want to, when all the victims are Decepticons? Then, in the title story, the Dinobots accept a dangerous mission into the Cybertronian wilds, but they get more than they bargained for, and are forced to reassess their beliefs in the process. Finally, in Salvation, the Dinobots are reviled for the things they’ve done. So when their greatest threat, Trypticon, appears, how much will they sacrifice for a world that hates them?
Collects The Transformers: Punishment,The Transformers: Redemption, and The Transformers: Salvation
The book is scheduled for release on April 17th, 2018. Click the title bar to discuss
