The official IDW website has been updated over the weekend with a look at the comics planned for release this coming February 2018. Though these are not the usual solicitations we're used to, there is plenty to look at, from the Optimus Prime Annual (featuring Thundercracker's screenplay at last), to the continuation of ongoings Transformers: Lost Light and the release of its second collected volume, and Optimus Prime - plus new series Transformers vs Visionaries (aka the aftermath of First Strike), Scarlett's Strike Force (which may or may not include Skywarp, information is conflicting so far), and Rom & The Micronauts plus the collected trade paperback of the miniseries Rom vs Transformers: Shining Armor!

You can check out all of them below, and keep your eyes peeled for some further solicits later this week, too!

I thought Thundercracker's movie was going to be about Chuckles?

Omg maybe it is but it just has Starscream in that role

I think the implication is that Starscream is offering TC the financing for a movie if he makes it about him.

It would be funny if it's as badly written as his other work, yet Starscream thinks its pretty good.

Looks like a great month of comics. Do we have any clarification if Skywarp is in Scarlett's UnMASKed Force?

I'm calling it now, Starscream:The Movie will be panned by critics :lol:

Can we get this movie instead of the garbage they are putting out every few years, currently?

I look forward to Onyx and the Liege! I'm also curious as to how Soundwave ends up playing out. He is one of the best IDW characters.

So glad to see some Casey Coller artwork showing up this month too!

David Mariotte shared some of the pages from the first issue of Scarlett's Strike Force. Skywarp is still in there.
