The most recent batch of Transformers comics solicitations has been released by IDW Publishing, with a healthy slate of books scheduled for release in May. The ongoing Beast Wars series reaches its fourth issue, with the Brian Ruckley Transformers series getting both its normal monthly release and an Annual despite its middling reception among the fandom. The Annual is highlighted by the return of fan-favorite Transformers artist Alex Milne, so it's likely to be worth the price of admission just for the visuals. All of this plus more friendship magic and an advance solicitation for the August release of the next hardcover trade await.

Check out all of the solicitation information below, and to support any of these series ask your local comic shop how to order copies of all these issues in advance. Click here to find a local comic shop near you.

“Lord of Misrule: Test Flight I”. Optimus Prime’s Autobots are starting to fray. They need energon and supplies that they just don't have access to. But Perceptor has a plan—if he can supercharge Jumpstream’s teleportation powers, the Autobots will have all sorts of new access to Cybertron. Of course, that relies on the experiment going right and things can never be quite so easy...

Transformers, Vol. 4: Declaration of War
Brian Ruckley (w) • Anna Malkova, Fico Ossio, Beth McGuire-Smith (a) • Cryssy Cheung (c)
The bold new vision of the Transformers universe continues, filled with diplomatic drama, techno-thriller twists… and giant, sentient robots!

But not if the new Prime can rally what's left of Security Operations and the Senate Guard into a resistance! Meanwhile, with the Autobots and Decepticons declaring war on each other, a group of Cybertron's top scientists and diplomats launch a plan to get those uninterested in the fighting, including the alien A'ovan refugees living on Cybertron, a way out of the devastation to come.

Collects Transformers #25–30, the Valentine's Day Special one-shot, and Transformers: Escape #1–5.
HC • FC • $49.99 • 280 pages • 7” x 11” • ISBN: 978-1-68405-806-8

These came out two days ago and a certain site admin (it was me) forgot to pull them down from the media server until this morning. February is such a short month that I'll claim that as an excuse, but ignoring that - sorry!
