All the way back in February IDW made a press release to tell the fans about a new graphic novel starring Bumblebee. Thanks to Newsarama, we have the full preview of the comic for your reading pleasure as well as all of the details on the book itself. We have to say that it looks pretty interesting already!

We think that it is worthy to note that this story takes place outside of the regular IDW universe and exists in a universe similar to G1. Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Blaster are all featured in their G1 designs but Windblade is included too. It will be interesting to see which other characters will be in this story when the book is released. If you would like a copy it is up for pre-order on Amazon when it is released on October 9, 2018. Have a read and tell us your thoughts. Will you be picking this one up?

Seems a lot more kid friendly then the usual IDW fare, not that's a bad thing, though I can see some being turned off by the faces but then again, there was some stories/pictures in the 80s that did similar.

Also that last panel, what was going on with Sideswipe and... What looks like the diagnostic Drone from Beast Machines?

Their faces are great. A lot of people will probably hate them but I love it :lol:

I think it makes them a lot more friendly looking which is good for some, especially kids. I like a mix of happy to serious.

Just caught me a little off guard and forced me to read the article :BANG_HEAD:

Not my cup of tea. Too simplistic and the face annoys the hell out of me. Panel colors are nonexistent. Coloring is dull. Sorry, I like my comics detailed. This is too amateurish :(.

This looks as fun as it can be for a kids one off. But once again, Windblade is just stuffed into a place she doesn’t belong. They should have used Arcee if they wanted to go for a complete G1 look. Samurai-themed Autobot flyer just doesn’t work here. Don’t we have enough of her in every other facet of TF Media. I don’t hate Windeblade herself, I just hate how she’s becoming a new Bumblebee

Windblade being in it doesn't bother me as I just see it as an offshoot of g1. Also they couldn't have put arcee in there as she's on Cybertron chilling with Hot Rod and Springer ;-) :lol:
