Weapon: Battle Blades
With a new Transformers comics universe a few weeks away from launching, the comics solicitations calendar rolls on ahead with two new solicitations for May 2019 from IDW Publishing. The information below comes from Diamond Comics Distributors' Previewsworld site as always. The bi-monthly schedule looks to continue here as well, with May scheduled to see release of issue 5 written by Brian Ruckley with art by Angel Hernandez and Cachet Whitman, and issue 6 also written by Ruckley with art by Bethany McGuire-Smith.

Check out the descriptions and sample covers provided, with the issue 5 cover by Andrew Griffith with colors by Thomas Deer that was shared by IDW's Tom Waltz on Twitter. The issue 6 cover shown is by the book's interior artist McGuire-Smith.

A cosmic epic of grand scale, presented by Star Trek/Green Lantern and Injustice 2 artist Angel Hernandez! Plus awesome action by G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and Revolutionaries artist Ron Joseph!

All your favorite Transformers characters as you've never seen them before! Optimus takes the spotlight! Even a bot as wise as a leader of the Autobots needs guidance now and again, so Optimus turns to Codexa-a Cybertronian who has grown into the very planet itself. Will she help Optimus settle his problems with Megatron or will she lead them both to ruin? Transformers-now shipping twice monthly!

Well, here is what may seem like a stupid question- How do I subscribe to get these? Electronic or otherwise?
Favorite quotes from The Transformers: The Movie-

"Ride in style!" Hot Rod (ever humble)

"Such heroic nonsense" Megatron

"I have better things to do tonight than die" Springer

"Till the day that all are one" Optimus Prime

"I belong to no one!" Megatron

"This is bad comedy" Galvatron (seeing Starscream's last bid for control)

"Till all are one" Rodimus Prime

Print: Ask your local shop about 1 and 2, they'll be past order cutoff but most likely will be happy to hold a copy for you out of their shelf stock (assuming they ordered some, which they probably did.) Likely they can also hook you up with a subscription. The codes on Previewsworld that look like "MAR190###" are order codes for particular issues/covers.

My nearest comic shop is way to far away, as I live in Small Town, USA, that has nothing interesting to note about it. I'd rather the digital print, anyways, which I've decided I can afford. Thank you!!
