Here are the sollicitaions for the IDW Transformers comics coming out in July, and not all covers are revealed yet. We also have two hardcovers coming out in September, for The IDW Collection and the Hasbro/IDW Revolution event. These were all found through Previews World. One info of note is that Revolutionaries will be ending with issue 8, leading to a new event.

Also included below, as part of our ongoing bare minimum Hasbro Universe coverage, are the likes of MASK, Rom, and Micronauts: Wrath of Karza!

In other words her character will be expanded on more than wallowing around and blaming starscream for everything? I welcome it.

Strange the solicitations for Lost Light is saying that Jack Lawrence is drawing it, but the comic cover ia saying Priscilla Tramontano is doing it. I wonder who it is?

I frikkin' love this cover! Yes Sideswipe is comin' back!

I am super excited for Shining Armor. Highlight of my July at the moment.

So Micronus has been hijacked eh? Oh boy. Can someone catch me up on the Transformers involvement in other books like GI Joe, MASK, and such? I haven't read any of them other than Revolutionaries and I don't really have any desire to read them.

GI Joe: Skywarp is in it. He's a jerk, with reason.

MASK: who knows how it ties in, if at all.

ROM: the ore we saw in the annuals, that helped create the armour, is probably linked to 'Our' Ores. Plus. Dire Wraiths are running around the place.

Micronauts: read it! seriously, good book. And Time Is All Things.

While I've loved the stories so far, what IS it with the TAAO covers from #9 on? The Mistress guarding Chromia, Onslaught embracing Blast Off from behind, now Windblade embracing Starscream? They're getting all handsy with each other. It's sort of weird, haha!

Till All Are Mmmmm...


I love them, personally. The private no longer is, it's all about mind games and manipulation (mani=hands in Latin/Italian; think also of how mnemosurgeons use their hands to tinker with minds in IDWverse), and something is most definitely off.

Canada anyone here tell me if ROM is any good? I'm interested but I don't know if I want to make the investment. I liked the pitch for the original marvel series.

Also, why isn't Optimus Prime at all concerned about the dire wraiths?

Folks really into Rom seem to love it, and Sal Buscema is going to be actively involved from I think issue 10 or 11 onwards. Apparently, in the world of Rom stuff this is a big deal - I'll take the word for it as I don't know any better :)

I can't trash the book but I have a hard time saying "go spend money on it". I really did honestly enjoy the Annual (Va'al did not, for the record) but it is unlike the rest of the series thus far.

Put it this way - if you've like what you've seen of Rom in Revolution/etc, the series is more of that but focused in more tightly on not only the book's namesake character but the Wraiths, the threatening nature of them, and it's starting to get into a faction of them that isn't interested in fighting,
like CONS4EVA and Doc Senior in the Joe book
. If that sounds up your alley, I know at least the first trade paperback is out, which is the entirety of events that take place before Revolution iirc.
