Sins of the Wreckers Alex Milne RI Cover

Alex Milne has posted a clean version of the art for the Sins of the Wreckers #1 retailer incentive cover. This cover showcases the classic Wreckers lineup of Roadbuster, Whirl, Springer, Sandstorm, Broadside, Impactor, and Rack&Ruin, as they leap into action from their ship, the Xantium. We’d seen this cover with the solicits that were previously released – but what you have here is the same great artwork without the title and trade dress. Check it out – and here is hoping Alex offers this one as a print at a future convention appearance!

At the final Auto Assembly this weekend, there was a fair bit of talk about sin – and not all of it was due to the Christian conferance which was also taking place in the same hotel. We’re talking about the Sins of the Wreckers, the upcoming IDW miniseries being written by Nick Roche! The majority of this information came from a panel on the Sunday afternoon of Auto Assembly, where Nick Roche took to the stage alongside Alex Milne, Andrew Griffith, and James Roberts to talk about IDW’s Transformers comics including the main series as well as sins.

Check it out after the break, with thanks to TFW2005 member Mort for providing us with a summary.

MTMTE 44 Preview 01

Let’s start this out by saying if you do not want to be spoiled at all, or thrown a curve ball, do not read the preview. iTunes has just posted a three page preview for issue #44 of More Than Meets The eye. Last issue we were left on a cliff hanger, so naturally issue #44 looks to be ramping things up significantly.

If you don’t mind being spoiled a bit, continue on after the jump for the preview. If you want to go into the issue blind, best to wait!
