Thanks to Previews World, we now have a full 5 page preview for you of the upcoming IDW Transformers #1! This comic starts us off fresh and new, with a little character named Rubble awakening in the new world, much as we are, and giving us a nice introduction to a Cybertron at peace. Issue #1 is set to drop tomorrow, so make sure your orders are in so you can pick up this brand new story, and stay tuned for the Seibertron.com review of Issue #1 to hear what we think of this bold new era!

Brian Ruckley is the Author for the new book, while Angel Hernandez and Ron Joseph share the art duties for the series, divided up between the Orion Pax/Megatron scenes and the Rubble scenes as it appears.

A NEW ERA DAWNS! In the infinite universe, there exists a planet like no other: Cybertron! Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity. Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below. Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric. Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows. It is a truly amazing realm, long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars. This is the Cybertron that Optimus Prime and Megatron vie for in this bold new origin-a world of seemingly endless peace! All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders-they are confronted by the hard reality of the first murder to have occurred on Cybertron in living memory!

This narration/quote at the beginning is nice.
Its interesting to this continuity to actually start before the war.

Thanks for that tip. Was a nice i troductory issue. No spoilers, but really, IDW? Let's put the old stories in the back of the brand new issue of the brand new series. Thats not confusing at all...

Lmao I thought the same damn thing when I got to the end :lol:

Maybe put in a preview of ninja turtles of GI joe but hey, more power to a good series that was Optimus Prime and the rest of OG IDW-verse

I guess the easiest distinction we can make between the old IDW G1 continuity of 2005-2018 and this new one from 2019-onward would be "IDW1" and "IDW2".

I know this is a reboot but I can’t help this itching feeling that this is the new universe the Lost Light jumped into at the end of their series. If not I still hope to see Rodimus and Megatron’s crew again someday in a spin off series or something of the lot.

I just finished reading the first issue and so far, I have only one complaint- Why draw Megatron to look like he's thinking of an evil plan? His facial structure, most notably his slanted black-lined red eyes, are totally screaming "I have a plan and it is evil. Cue evil plan laughter! *Mwahahahahaha!*"

Does anyone else feel like Rubble is standing on the head of a dead titan when he's looking out over the landscape? It kinda looks like a decomposing brow but with a definite nose... Or just my imagination?

For the moment this is about it. Depends on how closely this gets to being Siege: The Comic. Their first continuity's longevity was such an outlier it would not surprise me to see this one run alongside Hasbro's "War for Cybertron" lines and wrap at that, but I'm sure it all depends on how it sells.

This is pretty exciting, since it would mean we are back to the traditional idea of media supporting a toyline and not the other way around.

Lore Keeper wrote:The art is super clean and I like how they are keeping it accurate to the toys. But including every 5mm port, screw hole, clip, and contact point is a bit much. A little bit of artistic license is ok to cover up the less aesthetically pleasing aspects a toy's design.

ironhide does appear a little different in the shoulders from his toy though

Who gets the feeling that Rubble will eventually become Rumble? I mean, I didn’t realize he wasn’t Rumble until I was a quarter into the comic
