Hello fellow Seibertronians! Thought you got your weekly dose of Transformers comics with the release of Bumblebee #3 and Last Stand of the Wreckers #2? Well you thought wrong, as IDW has uploaded their latest solicitations to their website. They're for the month of May, and if you thought you'd be busy that month making your mother the happiest one on Earth, you've also thought wrong!

May 2010 looks to be jam packed with explosions, high flying action, and our favourite Transformers. We've got the continuation of Transformers, Nefarious, and Last Stand of the Wreckers. There's the start of the new Ironhide mini-series, and an issue simply labelled 'Transformers: Best of Optimus Prime'. They all sound exciting, so check out the covers, information and spoilers below!

    Transformers: Ironhide #1

    Mike Costa (w) • Casey Coller (a) • Marcelo Matere, Coller (c)
    During the Great War on Cybertron, one of the Autobots' fallen heroes was Optimus Prime's best friend-IRONHIDE. What does that have to do with the fate of the planet today? Find out in this all-new miniseries by TRANSFORMERS writer Mike Costa and the phenomenal Casey Coller. You didn't really think his death was just some stunt with no ramifications, did you?
    FC • 32 pages • $3.99

    Transformers #7
    Image
    Mike Costa (w) • Don Figueroa (a) • Figueroa, Andrew Wildman (c)
    As the dust settles down on Earth, we look to the Heavens to ask a burning question: Where have MEGATRON and the retreating DECEPTICONS been all this time? What have they been up to? The answer, of course, is: nothing good. Take a conspicuously infernal single-issue look into the heart of darkness with Costa and Figueroa.

    FC • 32 pages • $3.99

    Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers #5
    Image
    Nick Roche, James Roberts (w) • Nick Roche (a) • Trevor Hutchison, Roche (c)
    The endgame begins. Their teammates are dead, their mission is in tatters, and all hope is lost. Time has run out for the last of the Wreckers, who confront the maniac responsible for the atrocities of the last 48 hours. Deaths, betrayals and long-promised revelations-truly, this one has it all!
    FC • 32 pages • $3.99

    Transformers: Nefarious #3
    Image
    Simon Furman (w) • Carlos Magno (a) • Brian Rood, Magno (c)
    Capturing SOUNDWAVE is one thing, holding onto him quite another... as BUMBLEBEE, JOLT, KNOCK OUT and DUNE RUNNER are about to find out! And while the Autobots and Decepticons continue to stumble in the dark, National Security Director Theodore Galloway closes in on the secrets of Project: Nefarious... but his days are numbered!

I am really sick and I hate IRONHIDE. There are other Transformers that you do not hear about any more. Example Grapple, Windcharger, Reflector, Skylynx etc just to name a few. Prime and megatron looking good but NO more Ironhide. I was glad they killed him in the cartoon and I hope Bay Kills him off in the next movie.

I hope my eyes aren't deceiving me and that is actually Megatron with a black helmet. As for the Ironhide I think it should be worth it. :grin:

I don't mind more Ironhide. He was always one of my favorite characters in the cartoon and the comic series, and I was deeply saddened to see him killed in the first issue of the ongoing series.

I suspect, much like the reason's we're getting SL: Prowl, that's the reason why we're getting this. Yet another example of IDW's "A-C-B" philosophy of storytelling.

So, they're doing a sort of "Tarantino style" out of sequence story? :lol:

Wow, I'm pretty stoked about the Ironhide mini-series!

IDW's current verse is starting to grow on me... or maybe it's because my favourite character was featured heavily in last month's comics...

Yeah, If IDW wanted a good Tarantino type story, they would have gotten Tarantino to write their comic books.
