We have another update for the Bumblebee movie prequel comic, which sees the reunion of John Barber and Andrew Griffith, with Priscilla Tramontano on colours, on a movie piece of work, in the form of the actual cover for From Cybertron with Love!

The cover is an homage to the theme of the book, and a call back to the pulp-style paperbacks with a noir/crime/spy thriller of past publications - though no artist is currently credited UPDATE: The artist is Sara Pitre Durocher! - and you can check it out below. Will you be picking this up, even if you're not planning on watching the movie in December?

About Transformers Bumblebee Movie Prequel: From Cybertron With Love

Fan-favorite Autobot Bumblebee is recruited for a top secret mission, and 1960s London won’t know what hit it when this robot in disguise goes undercover.

It’s high-tech, high-octane, high-clearance spy hijinks in From Cybertron with Love.

Some call him Goldfender, but the name’s Bee… Bumblebee. On loan to MI6 and teamed with a human partner, Bee’s trapped in the middle of a Cold War plot to disrupt British Secret Intelligence. But when their base is destroyed from within, it’s up to Bee to discover if there’s a traitor in their midst…and, in the spy world, allegiances can change just as easily as a Cybertronian.

From long-time Transformers writer and British super spy aficionado John Barber (Optimus Prime, Action Man), From Cybertron With Love is the official prequel to the new Bumblebee film, in theaters December 2018.

Weird. Is that Bee's actual face in the movie? Half movie/half G1?

14.99? It's more of a graphic novel then?

ah whatever i'm just glad to see a movieverse comic again.

Yup it's got 96 pages so it's a prequel graphic novel. Interesting premise, I guess bee has been majorly distracted from looking for the all spark. Can't blame him from wanting some fun

This cover actually looks pretty cool to me. I may have to take a look at it when it comes out.

We had to take down an image of his actual movie appearance some time ago. It wasn't this face, much closer to his '07 look :/

No interest in reading that Bumblebee comic but the cover would make a nice poster.

He has a mouth.

WHY DOES HE HAVE A MOUTH?!

At least he won’t look like that in the movie.

EDIT: that shadowy figure on the right may actually be an Autobot because the one on the left is totally Bee.

Other than the fact that Bumblebee has a mouth... which is a bit odd... I really love the look of this comic and will 100% be buying it when it comes out. Hopefully it gives some insight into HotRod's and Bee's friendship. TF5 dropped the ball on that. Fingers crossed for an epic Barricade vs Bee fight!

You are assuming these films make any sense, haha.

Anyways, we know what this bumblebee will look like and it does look a bit like that. You can all see what he will look like in the film witha quick google search, its the first result that comes up

Just what we needed, more Bumblebee! Am I rite?

In all seriousness the cover reminds me of Hearts of Steel (Which I STILL need to read.) It looks mildly interesting but with all of the books and comics I plan to read this is a pass. If I get the opportunity to read it - say a friend of mine buys it or I see it at the library I will probably give it a read though.

Bumblebee is big news today, with a new trailer and poster for the upcoming spin off film dropping today, but there is another side to the new movie: The comics! Two new covers for the prequel comic have been revealed, one a B cover by Fico Ossio and the other a black and white retailer exclusive cover by Andrew Griffith. While it was previously announced that this series would be released as a large graphic novel, these seem to indicate it will be released in a $4 individual issue format, as well!
Both covers feature a 1960's spy movie theme, with one cover depicting Bee as an 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, as opposed to the Aston Martin DB5 James Bond famously drove, and then the other shows him as a modified DB5-esque car. The woman on both covers also seems to have a familiar pistol in her hand. Take a look at both covers below, and tell us in the comments if you're excited for this new prequel comic!

Dunno much about cars so I tried to find that Austen Martin on google. I find it ironic that Knockout was an Austen Martin in Transformers Prime and he was supposed to be Bumblebee's rival. Though of course this is IDW and a more classic model of Austen Martin. Though in the new movie trailer he appears to be a bug.

So the DB4 Zagato is an exceedingly rare car, only a handful were made. Originals can go for nearly $20 Million dollars. There are a couple race car versions that are even more valuable then that. They also happen to be my favorite car of all time, so I've been screaming with excitement since I saw this cover. I never thought in a million years that a TF would have this altmode. :-D Down below, the top two photos are DB4 Zagatos from the front, (the black and white one is my photo!) And then below that is the DB5, the car James Bond drove. You can tell the color cover was drawn around the Zagato in the details. Shape of the headlights, round body, drawn out grill, etc. The car in the black and white cover is sort of a made up amalgamation of several old British cars, primarily a DB5.

Don't worry about it. Most of it goes over my head but I am never one to turn down pics of cool cars.
