FREE STOMPIN'



Premise
As we have seen with previous news pieces, the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series will be accompanied by an IDW Publishing comic, featuring writing by Georgia Ball and art/colours by Priscilla Tramontano. The introductory short story will be written by senior editor John Barber, and released for Free Comic Book Day (today! 2nd May!). A preview of the first three pages of issue #0 can bee seen here - and check out our quick review below!

Transformers News: Free Comic Book Day 2015 - IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #0 Review
In hand!



Story

The foundation for the story is firmly rooted in the established status quo of the animated series, and recapped in the credits page of the issue (with art by Travis Sengaus and colours by Tramontano): Bumblebee is sent on mission to Earth by the 'spirit' of Optimus Prime, is followed by Strongarm and Sideswipe; they encounter Fixit and a crash-landed prison ship full of Decepticons, including Grimlock, now a Team Bee member. The series follows their search for the escaped prisoners, and the help they get from humans Russell and his father.

Transformers News: Free Comic Book Day 2015 - IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise #0 Review
Recap! Exclamation mark!


John Barber writes a light-hearted, if initially quite perilous plot for the humans involved, as a fire threatens to destroy a park by Crown City. The Autobots track the culprit down to Decepticon Flamefeather, and attempt to contain, restrain and detain the Con, and remain hidden to the human population.

LAMEfeather


The target is obviously the same as the TV show, with similar gags (Bumblebee's unsuccessful slogans), dynamics (Strongarm and Sideswipe bickering), punchlines (anything with Grimlock) and general action sequences with the Con-of-the-week formula - but there is also quite an intriguing twist at the end, which might have some older fans interested, and the jokes (both visual and textual) work quite well on the page too.

Art

The art, both colours and linework, is by newcomer to interiors but Transformers veteran Priscilla Tramontano - and she shines, truly. The expressivity of the characters, the contrasts between backgrounds and forefront, the action sequences; everything is executed really well, and brought together in a visually appealing and exciting package, bound to interest new readers.

Oh hey Prips


The colours do very much the same job, distinguishing between almost 3D and almost 2D shades for different elements on the page, with wonderful addition of Chris Mowry's lettering bringing the sass to the spunkiest characters, and the STOMP to Grimlock, as was needed.

STOMP STOMP


There is also a fun and unexpected additional section after the RID comic, with Barber and Tom Scioli joining up for a 'comic book funnies' centerfold page, based on the Transformers vs G.I. Joe ongoing hit series. Megatron's activity corner is a treat. And some extra advertising for Combiner Wars, the continuing RID series and other IDW properties.


Thoughts

The creative teams behind this have been clear about their target and intentions, as to how the comic series will relate to and link with the TV show, and it works quite well in this introductory issue. As I said above, the humour of the show is transported successfully to the page, and bodes well for the future, with Georgia Ball taking the reins next month.

I got my optic on you, RID


It's a fun little romp (stomp?) through the surroundings of Crown City, and Tramontano's debut makes it so attractive that I'll be following the series even just out of visual interest. But that final page reveal is bound to also leave a couple of questions that the show so far does not seem to be able to do. A fun issue to pick up for free, and definitely one for the younger readers!

The Transformers Collectors' Club sent out an email updating members on Botcon 2015 registration and Hotel availability. They are working on final issues before registration can go live which will not happen before next Thursday.

You can also check out the BotCon 2015 brochure while waiting for registration or check out our exclusive galleries for Cybertron's Most Wanted featuring Packrat, Battletrap, and Megatron with Scalpel, Boombox and Heavyweight. They are in the box set alongside Shattered Glass Stepper and Double Pretender Oilmaster.

BotCon.com wrote:Hello Everyone!

We are still working on the final issues to get registration online. This will not happen before next Thursday. I will update you as we get the final issues completed.

The hotel is working on finding some more rooms for our block. I have not heard back from them yet. Currently they are searching for duplicate rooms so if you have a room you are not going to use, please release it so someone else can reserve it. Remember that you must put down a first nights deposit and if you don't cancel by the cut off you will lose the deposit.

If they don't find more rooms for us, we will get a block at a second hotel so, no worries. I'll let you know as soon as they figure out what they can do.

See you in St. Charles!

Mairghread Scott, Transformers writer for IDW Publishing and the Robots in Disguise animated series, will be making an appearance this Saturday 2nd May at the Blastoff comics fest in Hollywood, California to celebrate this year's Free Comic Book Day! Find out more from her blog here, and below!

So this Saturday, I’ll be signing at Blastoff Comics Fest at the Federal Bar & Grill in North Hollywood, California from 10am to 4pm. This is going to be a great event with tons of comics creators signing, food, music, a beer garden, and of course free comics!

Free Comic Book Day is my second favorite day of the year, which means it didn’t beat out Yule, but it’s still super awesome! And Blastoff Comics is making it even more awesome with this blowout event.

Even if you aren’t in the North Hollywood area, you should definitely look for a Free Comic Book Day event in your area.

File this one under "Unconfirmed"...

A Weibo user by the name of Lost-Zzl has provided images of a brand new deco on the Generations Roadbuster mold (you can see the original, in our galleries, right here) and it's a deco you'd expect on a vehicle such as this, but seems to come from a source most of us have forgotten: Generation 2!

General Optimus Prime was meant to be a redeco of Autoroller Dirtbag, but was canceled towards the end of the Generation 2 line, back in the early '90s and the figure never really saw the light of day, outside of a few images and some convention displays. The reason we say this is unconfirmed is because we've yet to hear anything about this figure coming to this year's BotCon and we definitely haven't heard anything of this particular deco, but there are some things that support it's potential release.

Here's G2 General Optimus, to refresh your memory:
Transformers News: Potential BotCon 2015 Roadbuster In G2 General Optimus Deco

First of all, Lost-Zzl has this Roadbuster on hand along with several already revealed and in hand upcoming exclusive releases and second, it has what looks to be a professionally (factory) applied tampograph of the Generation 2 Autobot logo on it's backend in vehicle mode.

Since this is out of left field and the first we're hearing of this, we're telling everyone to take this with at least a grain of salt, but to hope for the best and as of right now it could be a BotCon attendee exclusive or even a part of the TCC. You know the drill: As soon as we know, you will!
