Probably will be Hardcover, and have longer pages though which makes them worth it.



Page count is 48 so they're double size issues

That subscription cover variant of issue #50 looks amazing.

Directly from PreviewsWorld, we have a little more info on the February releases in the regular IDW Publishing ongoing Transformers comics series, The Transformers and More Than Meets the Eye, as they're bigged up for their respective 50th issue! Check out the expanded synopses and newly revealed variants for MTMTE, in addition to what we already saw, below.

Some of you know them from the films made by Micheal Bay. Others have been loyal fans since they were toys in the 80s. All of us, however, are happy that Hasbro authorized the Transformers comic books. And this month IDW shows that there's no slowing down when it comes to brainstorming for the Autobots and Decepticons because both of their Transformers series are approaching their 50th issues, and that means storytelling is about to go...sideways.

Extra TLC starts with some very cool variant covers, of course, but if you check out this month's Transformers #50 (DEC150406) you'll see that we're about to get a history lesson of sorts. We're taken back to a time after Megatron is allegedly dead, and Bumblebee must attempt to keep order among the other struggling Autobots, and (now defunct) Decepticons. When Optimus Prime shows up to help him out, one would expect that things would get easier right? But, no, it seems that this is when the troubled leader decided it would be best if Earth was part of Cybertron's council.

The question to ask, though, is will the people of earth be receptive to the idea?

Switching gears, we see that in Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #50 (DEC150411) one particular robot is thinking of amending his destructive tendencies.

Megatron may actually be experiencing regret. This may not be the vicious killer that we all know and despise.

It appears that Megatron wants to put his days of ruin behind him, and renounce the Decepticons.

But is this just deceipt? Is Megatron telling the truth? Can Rodimus and his crew even trust him? Is this just a trap? Can one who is the embodiment of evil ever truly repent?

Lots to chew on, folks, so check out both Transformers books this month from IDW Publishing, and be sure to preorder from your local comic shop!

Not going to lie but those expanded previews actually confused me. Like the bit about bumblebee and especially the bit about megatron as it seems to be making out that megatron just randomly approaches the lost light to repent!

They read more like synopsis for new readers but not very good ones as unless bumblebee has been resurrected and no one's told me then he's been dead for two years already.

I agree... It's poorly worded. It's either referring to a flashback to the period when Bumblebee was in charge & Megatron was thought dead following the D-Void thing, or the little yellow douche is gonna pull an Optimus Prime & get resurrected...

One thing that always bugs me about media, is how cleanly and clearly defined "good" and "evil" usually are portrayed. In real life, its never that simple or easy. I really feel like the Transformer books, MTMTE in particular, are really trying to a dress that. Its one of the reasons I love them so much.

I agree with your comment I think there needs to be more grey, but it takes great writing and character development to do that. In general there are some characters such as Prowl, Jazz, Rattrap and even Thundercracker that have stayed in that grey sweet spot throughout different books.

And in other IDW comics news, we also have an Amazon listing for July 2016, with the release of the ninth volume in The Transformers ongoing. As volume 8 will end on issue #45, and this one is listed at 100 pages in total, it is possible that it will include up to the landmark #50 with the new page count - thought that would also exclude any additional material, unless it stops with the conclusion of the Conquerors arc in #49. Only time will tell!

Paperback: 100 pages
Publisher: IDW Publishing (6 July 2016)
ISBN-10: 163140668X
ISBN-13: 978-1631406683

With 100 pages, and 46-49 using 80 pages, that wouldn't leave enough room for issue 50 since it is 41 pages long. I think it will only be 4 issues and bonus stuff :BOT:

That's what I want people to discuss, really: 4 issues for a full trade collection? How do people feel about that?

Isn't that how they are doing The Transformers volume 8? 4 issues of post-Combiner wars issues? :BOT:

Yeah. And it's a little slim, don't you think?
I mean, it seems to happening across a good chunk of the comics industry, but I'm still not sure how I feel about having such slim TPBs, even with the 'extra' material (which is usually only variant covers, really).

It is very slim and I don't like it. Combiner wars threw that off so bad with those 3 issues in there. 4 issue TPB's just don't work for me. I mean Windblade and Drift were like that, but the individual comics were $16 total and the TPB $20. There should be at least 5. I would honestly have been ok with them making an 8 issue TPB that was a bit extra to fix that and exclude all the bonus stuff. Some of it is cool, but some is unnecessary or should not be considered bonus. :BOT:

Coming a bit out of left field here, we now have another cover to add to More Than Meets The Eye 50, this time a combination of Casey Coller and recent MTMTE artist Hayato Sakamoto! This new cover shows off Megatron in his tyrants days and in his new life outlook. What do you think of this cover? Had enough yet? Ready for Issue 50 coming out this month? Head on down to the comments section and let us know what you think of this new cover and of the upcoming issue 50 this month, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest transformers news!
