Sarah Stone strikes again, as IDW reveals the next 30th Anniversary cover, a retailer incentive variant for Transformers: Robots in Disguise #33! And this time round, it's one of the good guys, doing good - check out Ironfist/Fisitron below.

30th Anniverssary Cover (3 of 3)! The previous two I did are here and here. This ended up being a very emotional part of Last Stand of the Wreckers for me, so here’s my tribute. Thank you again, IDW, for allowing me to participate in TF’s 30th birthday.

MEGATRON assumes control of the quest to find the Knights of Cybertron-a quest that has never been so urgent, so personal, and so likely to end in tears. But, the crew of the Lost Light isn't so eager to follow his orders and, as is always the case, past decisions will come back to bite them.

Quantum Review
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
REVELATIONS! The fate of an entire planet hangs in the balance as MEGATRON races to solve the dark riddle of Sector 113. As unseen forces move in for the kill and old friends reveal their true colors, the AUTOBOTS realize that everything—everything—is a lie. All this...and an open briefcase.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
Plus a Swerve recap, of course


Story

Death death death death lunch death death afternoon tea death. Pretty much sums up issue 32, the beginning of the Slaughterhouse chapter in More than Meets the Eye, as the DJD are shown - or rather, their aftermath - to make their way through a slightly different Lost Light. With one single, tiny survivor.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
...


Be ready for some explanations that, while making sense even in the non-text world, might take some time to get around in James Roberts' enjoyment of them and the sci-fi genre. At the same time, Nightbeat and, especially, Nautica are still the mouthpieces for exposition, with some nice chemistry between them and with the reader's projection in Getaway and Riptide.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
Doesn't get(away) it


What is also very good to see is a healthy dose of self-criticism, too, as Roberts appears to be aware of potential criticisms from the readership. Mostly humorous, but not only, and scattered throughout the book. And to top it all, we get one of possibly the biggest twists in this series' run so far - and it's pulled off twice!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
Spoilers - have some Ravage


So far, one of my favourite MTMTE resolutions, after the issues I had with the Overlord and Remain in Light sagas - though I still have some concern for the denouement reserved to the Rewind plotline, and I do hope it gets addressed again before we get lost in Elegant Chaos. As something else seems to be set in motion, very briefly, in the epilogues, too..

Art

Alex Milne's might alone was not enough for this issue, as two inkers join the lineart team to provide some delineation to different scenes - and both Brian Shearer and John Wycough work wonderfully with Milne's pencils, giving some particularly amusing facial expressions, some of which yet unseen in Milne's work alone. Especially Riptide.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
Oh, Riptide


What is definitely not unseen, however, is Joana Lafuente's (still) astonishingly good colouring work: from fading to quantum foam, to space, to interiors, different lights, flashbacks, mood settings, the colours really aid the reader in setting further the tone to the scene, if the lines and er.. lines were not enough already.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
I mean, the lighting on that


The letters are once more by Tom B. Long, in a style that I have really come to enjoy, and even though there isn't much in terms of sound effects this time round, the title page and the uses of translucency for certain scenes is just part of the trademark visual quality of this series. Something proven by the variant covers too, from Sarah Stone's to Casey Coller and JP Bove, via the main Milne and Josh Perez haunting Rewind and Nick Roche and Josh Burcham (thumbnail) doing justice to the DJD.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

This is a James Roberts Transformers comic script, no doubt about it. There is a lot of unpacking to be done once you read through (and even as you are reading, for that matter), and I'd be curious to see the wordcount for the script before and after the visual rendition - because there are a lot of words in this issue. A lot. And yet some of the better scenes can be completely silent. Especially the sweeter, and the more horrific ones. Be warned.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33 Review
Do you?


And that's where the art team come in, from Milne and Lafuente to Wycough and Shearer and cover artists, making everything flow so smoothly you almost forget about the atrocities, quantum mechanics, heart-wrenching tales of survival and general twistedness. Are we back on track, though, if the issue's conclusion is anything to go by? Or are we to face even more horrors on the Lost Light?

Addressing the many questions received from fans, IDW Transformers artist Sarah Stone has posted on her Tumblr a step-by-step breakdown of her creative process, specifically about the More than Meets the Eye #33 30th Anniversary cover variant. Find out more here, and check out some mirrored images below!

I get a lot of questions about my process so I thought it’d be cool to break down and talk about some of my steps for illustrating covers! I hope this is helpful or interesting, it’s not quite a tutorial but perhaps it’s a glimpse into my thought process.

Step 1 | Thumbnail. The point here is to do several very fast, small, drawings, so you can’t get hung up on details. Here I’m thinking most about composition and subject. I had four originally and this one was picked to get finished.

Step 2 | Sketch. I draw on top of my thumbnail, nailing down more of the actual details. I fix any proportion isssues but I still try not to waste too much time making final lines, the sketch will go away in the end, so it just needs to be good enough for me.

Stage 9 | Final Lights. I add a harsh white rim light to both of the figures, really pulling them away from the background to finalize the painting.

A while back we posted both the IDW Publishing Transformers comics solicitations and the news about the September cover of Previews taken over by robotic Sarah Stone art - but in further news, the magazine also included a short run through all the Transformers stuff to be expected from November 2014 onwards, including the Angry Birds crossover (with some preview artwork, too). Check it out in full here, and find out more below!

So you like Transformers, you say? You’d vacation to Cybertron if you could afford the space shuttle? Well, then the news we have to report to you this month should be quite tasty.

The truth is that IDW Publishing raises the bar for the walking talking robots with “The Days of Deception” story arc which begins in Transformers #35 (SEP140389), written by John Barber and illustrated by Andrew Griffith (who also renders the issue’s cover).

[...]

But it’s not like us to leave things on a sour note. Otherwise, why get out of bed. We all need some sunshine, and with Transformers: Drift — Empire of Stone #1 (SEP140392) by writer Shane McCarthy and art by Guido Guidi, there is cause for celebration because it’s the return of Drift! All is not lost, despite how the last time we saw Drift had left the Autobots in disgrace. A dark chapter, yes. A downer? Yes. The end of Drift, no! It turns out that the cosmic dungeon master that pulls everyone’s strings isn’t through with Drift. He now has a mission to clean up the darkest corners of the galaxy. Does this mean he’s been assigned to sweeping parking lots and vacant malls? Well, those are details that you’ll have wait for with the roll-out of this four-issue mini-series. One thing we can tell you is that Ratchet is back, and he’s trying to bring Drift home. For what reasons we don’t know, but Ratchet doesn’t seem to be willing to accept “no” for an answer.

Lastly, let us turn your attention to Angry Birds/Transformers #1 (SEP140395) by writer John Barber and artists Marcelo Ferreira and Livio Ramondelli.

This book is proof as to why you shouldn’t take life so seriously, because when you do you close yourself off to insane hijinx that you’ll find in this four-issue mini-series that smashes the Angry Birds and Transformers together to give you a new kind of tasty treat. If you willing to go insane in the membrane, then you’ll let it all hang out and follow along as the Transformers travel to Piggie Island to retrieve the powerful Allspark, which has turned the world of Angry Birds robotic! And with this overhaul of reality we get, of course, the Autobirds and Deceptihogs! How’s that for thinking out of the box? And would you want a crossover any other way?
