Via a listing over on online retailer Amazon Japan, we have news of another IDW Publishing collection of Transformers comics to be released in Japanese translation, continuing the publication of stories after the All Hail Megatron an Chaos Theory volumes a while back.

The new listing shows a collected edition - with a new cover by Kei Zama, according to Autobase Aichi, but not yet shown - of the comics originally published in the US as Megatron Origin 1-4, Spotlight: Shockwave, and Spotlight: Soundwave. A true rogues gallery of the Transformers comics universe. Check out more info below, and stay tuned for the new Zama cover reveal soon!

Introduction

Road to the birth of destroyed Great Megatron!


It was a time when Cybertron still wanted peace and prosperity. But its prosperity was built upon the sacrifices of some.
Transformers were divided by occupation by their characteristics, there was no freedom of choice.
However, the system which seemed to be a stone stone starts to fail even if it is fragile by a certain incident. The stage of the incident is the marginal Energon mine.

The name of the man who became the key ... ... Megatron.
In addition to the secret origin story of Megatron, Japanese original edition version which simultaneously Shockwave, and Soundwave appeared!

Odd time for Japan to be receiving pre-AHM issues, after they've gotten all the way through the Costa run. Makes one wonder how the -ations will be released.

They were. The last volume they got contained the end of the Costa run. This is the first volume to go backward to issues released before All Hail Megatron.

In the previous news story about the latest translation of an IDW Publishing Transformers comic into Japanese - which you can see again here - we did not have a cover image to share with you all. Thanks to artist Kei Zama, who collaborated with Josh Burcham on this, and an updated Amazon listing, we now do!

Check out below the miner from Kaon, towering over this collected volume featuring Megatron: Origin, Spotlight: Shockwave, and Spotlight: Soundwave, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!
