Woah, awesome month they've got queued up. Glad to see Punishment getting a print run, complete Allspark Almanac is cool to see, and hey - that's Impactor!

Spoilers!! -from text descriptions-


I think you mean a confusing month... Arcee versus Constructicons? What does this mean for the Prowl relationship?

Cool the GB makes it into the IDW-verse...(other than in REGEN).

I'm sure some misunderstanding or another is gonna have them at each other's throats for awhile. Arcee is short tempered, the Constructicons are questionably trustworthy at best, Prowl's motivations are cloudy - I can see it working out.

RID Megatron is making an enrance into theIDW Continuity?

This is part awesome, part stupid, but ALL GENIUS.

RiD Megatron??? I'm guessing he'll go by Gigatron in the IDW-Verse (unless that's taken). Hope that means he'll be getting a new toy. :grin:

Also, I'm pretty sure I need a Tom Scioli commission at some point. I love his style in Transformers vs. G.I. Joe. That comic oozes fun. It's like Jack Kirby drawing my play sessions when I was 8-year-old!

These solicitations are for January of next year, so they won't be on the apps until then, same as the comic stores, Max.

My thoughts exactly this guy was NEVER meant to be a 'Megatron' he will hopefully go by Gigatron or maybe Devil Gigatron as he looks much better in black than white.

I'm so glad IDW are making this great design into a non-Megatron design

...could this lead to other incarnations of Optimus & Megatron being new characters??

G2 Green Megatron could now easily be Megastorm from BW2nd
G2 Purple Megatron could now take on the UK form of Archforce
Armada Megatron could now be the Universe character Megazarak

Personally I think it's easier for the Megatron's as his design has differed considerably over the years whereas Optimus Prime has stayed quite close to his original design.

I sent a tweet to Livio Ramondelli yesterday regarding the MediaFire motion comic Transformers: Punishment...

:oops:
To be honest, the Punishment motion comic news passed me by but it was only yesterday when I was looking on Livios Deviant Art page I spotted the page of art and note regarding it, so I searched Seibertron for a relevant thread to put this is in after I got the reply back!
Mark it up as further confirmation I guess! :P

Talking Livio, did the trade paperbacks of Autocracy and Monstrosity contain any extra material not in the seperate comic book? :-?

No extra material, no, but the book design is pretty gorgeous. Tom B. Long worked on it, and Monstrosity in particular is great looking tome!

Were you expecting more, or at least some, IDW Publishing Transformers comics this week? So were we. Unfortunately, it seems as though road closures in Mississippi have put a glitch in that plan, as confirmed by Senior Editor John Barber. Expect a double dose of robocomics in the next two weeks, including the one-shot Punishment, Transformers #37 along with Drift: Empire of Stone, and Angry Birds Transformers #3, MTMTE #37 and TF vs G.I. Joe in the final week of January!

Yeah--highway closures are delaying both TF #37 and the PUNISHMENT one-shot to next week, I'm told. DRIFT will also be out then.

Yeah....how is that delaying digital comics? I don't live near a comic shop, so I get all mine online.

If they do what usually happens, digital and print will be released at the same time.
I can confirm we have no digital preview or review material as of writing this.

Building on what Va'al said, they delay the digitals so as to not undermine Brick and Mortar sales of actual paper comics.
