Courtesy of Previews World, and a notification from fellow Seibertronian admin ScottyP, we have a new cover for the IDW Publishing Transformers comics miniseries Unicron and its fourth issue, due later in August.

It looks like we're really headed to Earth after all, with regulars Jazz and Thundercracker joined by Aileron and Stardrive! Check it out below in Alex Milne's lineart and uncredited colourist - probably Josh Perez (or Sebastian Cheng) - and join us for previews and reviews in the coming weeks for more!

You're confusing normal thinking with overthinking. (Actually, that's offensive.) I believe that the 'mold' idea was just a joke about toy-making.

Human race says'It's not fair that Unicron's killing us, simply because our continuity has become too complex!'. ;)

Where is that nostalgia critic meme about boomer from the first independence day movie when you need it.

Though funny thing is, countless people will die and we'll be expected to feel relieved that one dog survived :-P

If they kill Buster, I shall refuse to read the remaining IDW books following that issue.

Also, Milne's Unicron covers are fan-frikkin-tastic!!!

What if they kill him last panel, and then end with a Furmanism?

Then I'll refuse to buy the TPB and any IDW book ever again once the reboot starts

That's harsh, but as someone who hates animal violence in real life and in cartoons (not tom and jerry style violence but Elfen Lied style violence...don't ask) I can sympathise. It's weird, kill humans and it barely does anything (unless a fan favourite character) but kill an animal and that's it. I think more people would kick off over buster dying on panel, then did over the pointless death of Kup

I mean, I was kidding about the not buying again. But I wholly agree on animal violence.

I have a really hard time with movies that kill animals. Humans, eh. robots, eh. Dogs or cats: I cannot watch them again, if ever once I hear about it.

That said, I will be super depressed if they would kill Buster. Sadder than any other death in the book

We have three more previews of IDW Publishing Transformers comics, coming from both the publisher themselves and regular outlet iTunes for the one included below to begin with - a three page preview for the third issue of the Unicron mini-series, as we reach the mid-way point of this final event in the narrative universe.

Check out the three mirrored pages below, and be ready for a longer preview and full issue soon.

Unicron #3

Unicron approaches Cybertron, so Windblade enacts a desperate plan—one neither Optimus Prime nor Starscream agree with! Has Windblade outmaneuvered Shockwave's machinations—or played right into his deadly hand?
