Synopsis
AUTOBOTS VERSUS EARTH! OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS discover the humans’ secret—and they aren’t pleased with what they learn! Will the DECEPTICON’s alliance tear down the peace—and will the world learn the CYBERTRONIANs are back?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
A bit hard to miss, really


Story

The past of couple of issues of Robots in Disguise have slowly been building up to the Alpha Trion discovery and recovery, seeding lies and lines about Prowl's true intentions and feelings, Jazz and Arcee's discomfort in their new-and-old roles, Galvatron's connection to it all, the Witwickys, Soundwave, Optimus and the rest of the gang. Slowly.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
Ready..?


And then, suddenly, giant spaceships. Stories that were heading one fearfully predictable way go in a direction so different it's almost inwards. Characters more or less established by now are truly revealed for what and who they are. Changes come about so subtly and quickly and yet still make sense with everything teased so far, that reading 28-31 again is almost required to get more out of it all once again.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
Bananas!


John Barber does an excellent job at keeping all the threads close, weaving a pattern so intricate that three out of two of us on the comics staff have no idea as to where the story will go from here, but are loving the ride read. This is what RID promised in its initial issues, both seasons, and the heights it can accomplish with its twisted political and social narratives.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
And dogs called Buster


And on top of that, the entire issue is a series of well orchestrated, well paced, well placed action sequences, with Prowl and Jazz on one side, the Autobot team on another, and humans and Decepticons between and around the two. With exemplary stand-outs in Thundercracker, Buster and Marissa, as Barber does not forget the series' heart and humour, exactly when needed (the closing sequence is magnificently crafted).

Art

Andrew Griffith is the main artist, taking care of all the gigantic spaceships, stupidly amazing visual references, fights, perspective shifts, interactions and running plot, flashbacks included. The opening scene, the title page, just examples of what Griffith can do with a page, something hinted at in Dark Cybertron. And the amazingness is topped by Josh Perez' colour work on Griffith's pages, giving a grittiness and darker hue to a truly bleak situation - lighting it up by fire, laser and destruction.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
Hum. Shoom?


Brendan Cahill is confined (I use the term loosely) to four pages in total - but whoah are they some pages! Focusing on the interactions between Prowl and Jazz, and an amazing double page, reader shifting spread that delves deeper into the human connection to the story, both Cahill and Joana Lafuente's colours put the sci-fi back into the Transformers, reminding us of one of the many genres the comics line falls under. And how adorably evil Prowl looks while smirking.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
Smirk



To top everything off, Tom B. Long dazzles in his lettering work, with some wonderfully placed sound effects mirroring the chaos and confusion that must be ensuing during the attack on the human base, and a gorgeous ending sequence caption group. Then add to that the amazing Coller and Bove cover revealed yesterday, and the Coller and Lafuente variant hinting at where the story may be headed (see thumbnail).


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Barber was able to take all my fears as to where this series was heading, and spin them completely around into something unrecognisable and impossible to figure out, nearing its sister series MTMTE for twistedness. Griffith and Cahill's collaboration raises the bar even higher, with some mind-boggling art in terms of perspective and layouts, with the excellent Perez and Lafuente giving a decidedly significant boost, and Long's designer eye operating from the shadows.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 Review
You did, RID


Robots in Disguise #32 has action, lots of it. It has mystery, it has scheming, it has humans and Cybertronians. Lots of them. It has a good story, excellent pacing, great dialogue, fantastic art, amazing colouring and letters, gorgeous covers and is reaching a level of comic book writing worthy of any other action series currently published in the industry. I cannot recommend this issue enough. Lots of it.

And then there were three
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
THE WAR FOR CYBERTRON! Optimus Prime versus Megatron. Autobots versus Decepticons. At the dawn of the conflict, battle lines are drawn and sides are set… now legends will be made. The war that would define a planet begins in earnest—and its revelations will shake the TRANSFORMERS’ world to the core!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Trust No-one


Story

Autocracy did some really interesting things by taking politics to a whole other level. Monstrosity brought 'the Quintessons' and Trypticon back into the game. Primacy is supposed to shape the IDW Transformers universe as we know it - so what is the missing link between the fall of Trypticon and the rise of Megatron? It looks like issue 1 starts answering that question.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Reeee-cap


The focus of Chris Metzen and Flint Dille appears to be shifting between Optimus Prime and Megatron as they both 'recover' from the happenings in the previous two mini-series, with the latter in particular sometimes questioning (?) his actions - and yet, at the same time, we also have some nice interactions between Grimlock and Rodimus, Optimus and Ironhide, Megatron and.. well. You'll see.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Rodlock?


There is one major snag in the issue, during Optimus' sections, which I'm hoping will get explained later in the series - but for now it's not too distracting (for me at least), and considering John Barber is editing the work, some kind of patching could always take place at another stage, or there's a better reason for it happening as it does.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Or not


All in all, there are some big set-ups for this run, with some nice interactions between the key players, and some past exploration and world-defining, delving into pre-established elements of the franchise and plots hinted at in both Autocracy and Monstrosity, and the wider IDWverse.

Art

Livio Ramondelli resumes his task of showing us the beginning of Cybertron's dark ages, with his trademark darker style and colours, shining on big splash pages and spreads, and I mean BIG. The characters, the scope, the layouts - there's a sense of size and scale that follows from some of the later chapter in Monstrosity sliding into here, and not just in the art itself.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Big city lights


The colours obviously work well with the linework, and there are some nicely contrasting tones in some flashback sequences. The eye differences are a nice touch too, with Grimlock, Optimus and Megatron showing off different optics. And a very nice touch comes from letterer Chris Mowry, helping with giving a voice to the different characters, each in its own slightly unique way, and some great translucent sound effects.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
Colours!


I'll take a little longer on the covers, as the main one by Ramondelli is but a fourth of the series' run, but it is joined by an amazing Optimus Prime revealing the matrix by Windblade's Sarah Stone (a nice echo of one of the moments shown above) and an excellent 30th Anniversary variant by Casey Coller and JP Bove, commemorating the smelting pool and poor Scrounge (see thumbnail).


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Metzen and Dille's writing is slightly different from the rest of IDW's current output, but still holds its appeal with both older audiences and fans of the more modern ongoings. And their style fits the tone and time of the story, without any doubt, focusing on the two main players of the beginning of the war. Ramondelli's art returns to complement them, and I very happy to have Barber on editing, making sure it all fits in together - even with Omega's confusing statements.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #1 Review
And so do we


It's an easing into the story again, definitely. Some big stuff went down in what leads us to this point, and with this issue we're discovering bigger things still slowly emerging from Cybertron's past and leading into its future. And there are much much bigger things to come, if the last pages are anything to go by. Big things indeed.

All Eyes On IDW At Comic-Con International 2014!
New Series, Archival Collections, And Monumental Crossovers Announced


San Diego, CA (July 28, 2014) – The eyes of the world were watching San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 for major announcements and this year IDW Publishing took the stage to reveal an impressive array of projects that are coming soon! Behold, the cure for the post-convention blues is here:

Star Trek / Planet of the Apes
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to “mind-meld” with a sentient ape? Or wanted to see a Klingon on horseback, brandishing a rifle? Readers will soon have a chance to peek into just such an alternate future, as IDW Publishing partners with BOOM! Studios for the crossover event of the year: Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive. The creative team will be a mix of proven experience and new blood with scripts by beloved Star Trek scribes Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2) and interior art and covers by the British newcomer Rachael Stott.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Ghostbusters
The crossover of the year comes to IDW when two of the most legendary teams come face-to-face in the new mini-series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ghostbusters! Written by top IDW talent, Tom Waltz, and Erik Burnham, the series will feel right at home with art by Dan Schoening.

Orphan Black
The acclaimed sci-fi series assumes a new identity in the form of a comic-book series from IDW Publishing. This will not be a clone of the show but will feature some all-new stories set in the complex and thrilling world of Orphan Black, which IDW will be working closely with the show’s producers to expand. The full creative teams and series details will be announced soon, with the first comic-book series launching in early 2015.

Garbage Pail Kids
Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids, the 1980s sensation, will have readers squirming with delight this winter as the obscene adolescents star in a brand-new comic-book series from IDW Publishing. With the likes of Adam Bomb, Leaky Lindsay, and New Wave Dave populating the Garbage Pail Kids universe, the delightfully deformed and often downright disgusting Kids are set to make their mark on the world of comics, just in time for their 30th Anniversary in 2015!

Edward Scissorhands
Just in time for Halloween, IDW Publishing and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products are proud to announce the first in a number of new projects together, with the first ever Edward Scissorhands comic book series. The long overdue all-new adventures begin in October, with New York Times best-selling author Kate Leth (Adventure Time) on writing duties and Drew Rausch (Haunted Mansion) lending his delightfully spooky style to the interior art. Rounding out the creative team will be acclaimed Locke & Key artist Gabriel Rodriguez, who will provide a stunning and suitably creepy cover for the debut issue.

Corto Maltese
The complete Corto Maltese will published in English for the first time! EuroComics, a new imprint edited by Dean Mullaney, worked closely with Patrizia Zanotti, Pratt’s long-time collaborator, to present the complete Corto Maltese in a series of twelve quality trade paperbacks in Pratt’s original oversized black and white format. They will also feature new translations from Pratt’s original Italian scripts by Simone Castaldi, Associate Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures at Hofstra.

Eric Powell’s The Goon Artist Edition
Special Projects Director, Scott Dunbier revealed the fan-favorite, cult series, The Goon by Eric Powell is next in line to receive the acclaimed Artist’s Edition treatment! Collecting the series “Chinatown,” The Goon Artist’s Edition will pummel its way into comic shops in 2015.

Shadow Show
IDW announced a 5-issue series of comic-book adaptations of the prose anthology Shadow Show, a tribute to the work of the incomparable Ray Bradbury. Shadow Show #1 starts with the haunting and melancholy “By The Silver Water of Lake Champlain,” written by Joe Hill (Locke & Key) and adapted by Jason Ciaramella (The Cape) with art by Charles Paul Wilson III (Wraith) and a gorgeous cover by Locke & Key co-creator Gabriel Rodriquez. Issue 2 will see Neil Gaiman’s “The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury,” brought to life with artist Maria Fröhlich, and artist Eddie Campbell will tackle Audrey Niffenegger’s “Backward In Seville.” Other Shadow Show stories to be included are Harlan Ellison’s “Weariness,” Dave Eggers’ “Who Knocks?” and Alice Hoffman’s “Conjure” with accompanying artists to be announced.

Angry Birds / Transformers
Announced earlier this year, Rovio and Hasbro have teamed up two beloved properties in Angry Birds and The TRANSFORMERS! This fall IDW will bring the mayhem to comics with the brand new series, Angry Birds Transformers, expanding on the unexpected backgrounds of this explosive crossover! Written by The Transformers mastermind, John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferriera, this crossover will be one for the record books!


Transformers: Combiner Wars
A new Transformers event, Transformers: Combiner Wars will start March 2015 from writers Mairghread Scott and John Barber and artists Sarah Stone and Livio Ramondelli. It’s an arms-race of truly titanic proportions as a long-lost ancient artifact allows the Cybertronians to unite into more powerful, gigantic forms. Will Cybertron—or the galaxy—be able to withstand the onslaught? Find out with a prologue and 5 issues, running in TRANSFORMERS #39-41 and the new TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE #1-3, which will be packed in with select TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS toys.


Galaxy Quest
The adventures of the NSEA Protector continue at IDW with an all-new Galaxy Quest series set after the film. Written by Erik Burnham, with art by Nacho Arranz the new series will be available in early 2015!

Dungeons & Dragons
A new Dungeons & Dragons series, Legends of Baldur’s Gate, sets off for adventure this October; led by fan-favorite writer Jim Zub. With art by Max Dunbar and covers by Sarah Stone, this will be a series of legendary proportions!

Lion Forge
IDW announced that it would be joining forces with Lion Forge Comics to bring the hit digital comics line to print, starting later this year!

Comics Experience
Spearheaded by former IDW Editor Andy Schmidt, Comics Experience is the premier destination for aspiring comic creators to learn the in’s and out’s of the trade. Starting later this year, IDW will bring these up-and-coming talents to the forefront of the comics world by bringing them to print!

Joe Frankenstein
Joe Frankenstein is a 2015 action/horror/adventure tale from Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan (co-creators of Batman villain, Bane) telling the story of young Joe Pratt, who discovers upon meeting the monster of his ancestor, that he is the heir to the Frankenstein name. A legacy that may get him killed if the creatures of the night have their way.

Some sneaky news from the SDCC 2014 Transformers panel, as the Hasbro News Twitter account took questions - for one hour - from fans during the preview evening, and are currently answering a selection of them. The first question answered concerns the possibility of more Generations Titans figure, after last year's Metroplex (and its SDCC 2013 exclusive counterpart!).

Metroplex was tied to the Fall of Cybertron game. Big character, big product & you guys love him.

We're always looking to do things that tie together with our great stories.

If you guys continue to love the great products we put out we're going to continue to make them!


The second answer addresses the return of fan-favourite Transformers: Prime Knock Out.

We always get lots of Q's abt everyone's favorite characters from #Transformers lore.

We look at Transformers and there’s 1000’s of wonderful characters to choose from each year.

We think about all the great fans of all ages from Rescue Bots fans to Generations fans.

So we try to balance the toy line each year to pick characters that fans of all ages will love.


(Someone hasn't been reading their IDW Publishing comics of recent..)

Third question is about more characters, Hot Rod and Blurr!

Hot Rod & Blurr – some of our favorites & great characters from our history that many know & love!

Each year we think about the stories we want to tell to Transformers fans of all ages.

We want to make sure we’re tying the product line with the stories being told.

We love to get fans’ feedback as we move forward and build new stories for all of our fans.



All of which sounds like the most non-committal definitely maybe answer in a while. But feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub discussion boards: what do you think? Will we get more Titan Class figures? Would you like to see more of a particular character?

SPECIAL FILM SCREENINGS PRESENTED BY SHOUT! KIDS AT COMIC-CON



Slugterra: Return of the Elementals (Saturday, July 26 at 11:50 AM, Marriott Marina Ballroom D)

Shout! Factory, Screenvision and Nerd Corps Entertainment have teamed up to bring a new feature-length original movie Slugterra: Return of the Elementals to cinemas across the U.S. beginning August 2, 2014. In Slugterra: Return of the Elementals, Junjie, a new member of the Shane Gang is a master of the mysterious slug slinging art of Slug Fu! But even with the power of five slingers, the Shane Gang are in over their heads as they attempt to protect the five legendary Elemental Slugs, ancient slugs of great power and the forebarers of all slugs in Slugterra. When an evil alliance starts hunting down the Elementals, Eli and his friends — old and new — take off in pursuit of the greatest threat their world has ever faced! (2014, Rated TV-Y7-FV)



THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC (Saturday, July 26 at 1:30 PM, Marriott Marina Ballroom D)

Directed by renowned 3D filmmakers Ben Stassen (Fly Me To The Moon, Sammy's Adventures: Escape From Paradise) and Jeremie Degruson (A Turtles Tale: Sammy’s Adventure), with original music by Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim, Game Of Thrones), THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a whimsical animated family adventure, bringing to life a unique story with a great sense of humor, positive values and universal appeal. Brimming with spectacular CG animation and endearing characters, this internationally acclaimed motion picture delivers a fun and highly entertaining movie experience for kids and the entire family.



THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC tells the story of Thunder, an abandoned young cat seeking shelter from a storm stumbles into a mysterious mansion owned by Lawrence, a retired magician. With all of Lawrence’s animal friends, including Jack the Rabbit and Maggie the Mouse, and a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos, you’d think this fantastically strange house wouldn’t have any vacancies. But as far as Lawrence is concerned, there’s always room for one more! Just as Thunder begins to feel at home, trouble strikes when Lawrence ends up in the hospital and the magician’s naughty nephew tries to trick him into selling the house. But Thunder and his newfound friends have a few tricks up their sleeves as they put aside their differences to defend their home with a delightfully spooky strategy.

(2013, Not Rated: For All Audiences)

Obsessed with dying and bound by a childhood pact to stay together forever, they loathe their mind-numbing existence in the suburbs of Bailey Downs. One night, the two girls are heading through the woods when Ginger is savagely attacked by a wild creature. Ginger’s horrible wounds miraculously heal over, but something is not quite right about her. Ginger is irritable and in denial. But to Brigitte, it is obvious that a terrifying force has taken hold of her sister.

MOTEL HELL Blu-ray™ (gift-with-purchase items include limited-edition poster+ SCREAM FACTORY coasters)

People come from far and wide to sample Farmer Vincent's distinctively flavored dried, smoked sausages, but one might well ask why there are so few people staying at the nearby kitschy Motel Hello. Also, have you ever wondered about the secret ingredients that make his meats taste so darn good? The ‘80s cult classic, horror-comedy film MOTEL HELL, directed by Kevin Connor (At The Earth's Core, The House Where Evil Dwells) takes a frighteningly funny look into the different kinds of critters that make up Farmer Vincent's fritters with plenty of surprises. Packed with insightful bonus content and all-new interviews, this definitive collector’s edition also contains a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork and a reversible cover wrap with original theatrical key art.



WITHOUT WARNING Blu-ray™ (gift-with-purchase item: SCREAM FACTORY coasters)

Beyond any known terror, mankind is about to become the next endangered species in the 1980 sci-fi horror cult classic WITHOUT WARNING, also known as IT CAME WITHOUT WARNING, from celebrated exploitation filmmaker Greydon Clark (Joysticks, Satan’s Cheerleaders). A non-stop ride into extra-terror-strial mayhem, this highly sought-after sci-fi creature thriller stars Oscar® winners Jack Palance (Batman) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood), Tarah Nutter (Bitter Harvest), Christopher S. Nelson (Roller Boogie), Cameron Mitchell (Blood and Black Lace), Neville Brand (Eaten Alive), Sue Ane Langdon (UHF), Ralph Meeker (Kiss Me Deadly), Larry Storch (F Troop) and featuring David Caruso (CSI: Miami) in an early role and Kevin Peter Hall (Predator) as the alien.
