IDW Publishing have updated their New Releases page with both Covers and a finished 5 page preview of Spotlight: Ramjet (Due in stores on the 7th of November).

While we have had the "A" cover, and the unfinished 5 page preview, we have not yet before seen the "B" cover, which gives away some hints about other characters to appear in this Spotlight:

Wow, that's a very G1 cartoon Megatron. I like it.

Looking good. Didn't realise it comes out this week. I now have a reason to look forward to the weekend rather than wishing I could reverse time **curse university deadlines**

I've missed a lot of comics, but what the heck are those things at the bottom of the page?

They look like some kind of practice robot or drone, with target's for faces?

WTF???

Yeah, they look like the drone Hot Rod practices his fighting skills in the '86 movie.

So, Ramjet's eloquent and may be a strategic genius? Seems kind of antithetical to his headfirst approach to combat...

I'm thinking they might just be part of "the big picture" he was ranting to Skywarp about.

As the page slowly loaded, I first thought we may have been seeing Octopunch's first appearance! :shock: :lol:

And isn't Skywarp a dim-witted soldier who needs constant supervision? Why is Ramjet trusting him?

How come Skywarp is in traditional G1 style instead of the IDW style? Is it just the variant cover?

Its a variant - the characters inside don't look like they do on that cover.

B covers pretty week, still it looks like they lifted that Megatron right out of the toon, so thats good.

The dynamics are there, it just needs some detail!

its hardly weak and it doesn't need anymore detail. its perfect as it is.

Both of Ramjet's knees are different and he's missing his cockpit's canopy. This really IS a G1 cartoon cover, animation errors and everything! (just kidding and being a jerk. I really like this one. I'm curious about those dudes at the bottom...)

As others have stated, that's an awesome alt cover. Megs looks incredible.

And...dust' mine eyes deceive me? Skywarp having some manner of plot importance? It's gotta be my birthday! I'm loving this!

Is that a reference to the Toilet Paper Adventures I see on page 2? I was under the assumption that we wouldn't be seeing anything of the sort.

Then again, I was told that by someone who works at IDW. And why should I believe anything they say? :roll:

OoOoOoOoOoOOOO! G1-esque Megs! Purdy!

Interesting. Not a lot happening given that this is almost a quarter of a book but hopefully the plot will shift a gear during this spotlight.

I'm kind of glad that Moore used the word 'crap' instead of 'slag' or some equivalent.

I'm not sure why Skywarp says, "You weren't on Earth then," when Ramjet would probably already know that. Even if Ramjet didn't know when Starscream had been put out of commission, why does he need to know when?

I like the art a lot.

I'm loving that Skywarp on the variant cover, I think I'll make an icon out of it. More Skywarp please, let's make him an exceptional character. :D

I would like to see a preview of Ramjet smashing through a building. :D

Like a lot of you, I like the cover a lot. It's too bad that they couldn't make a variant of one of the spotlight issues where the entire art is based from the original cartoon. That'd be pretty cool.
