Up first, we have a new cover to share with you for Issue #7 of the series! This cover comes to us from Christian Ward, and features Orion Pax in his Siege Leader toy's inner robot design that he is using in the comics. Issue 7 is currently solicited to come out in June.
And the other piece of news is a pretty cool little bit of information for those who enjoyed the original IDW run. Andrew Griffith has announced that he will be doing some artwork for the interiors of the upcoming Issue 4, which currently looks to be due May 1st. Griffith also has the honor, courtesy of the issue and pages he will be drawing, of designing a brand new character for us! While he cannot share her name or really anything about her yet, he was able to share with us her design, which looks pretty dang cool!
Check out the cover and the new yet-to-be-named character below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

^^This. Looks like she may have a beast mode, too? Seems different from everything we've seen thus far, including other newcomers.
Edit: That Optimus cover is the last thing you see before you die

There was an Airazor in the previous IDW continuity, and she played a pretty decent part in the final 3 or 4 years of the series as the representative of her world to the Council of Worlds on Cybertron

IDW Proudly Announces Transformers #1 Second Printing After Sold-Out Debut Issue
Overwhelming Support from Fans and Retailers Marks Success for IDW Publishing’s 2019 Comic Book Relaunch
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 18, 2019) – IDW Publishing announces today that Transformers #1, the start of a bold new era of Transformers comic book continuity, has sold out at the distributor level. Due to its broad appeal, the swift sales of Transformers #1 has prompted a new printing of the issue, slated for release on June 5th.
"The response to the new Transformers series has been amazing," says editor David Mariotte. "For a franchise with such a rich history — not just here, but in so many mediums — the first issue was something we knew we had to get right and it's incredibly gratifying to me, the incredible creative team, the fine folks at Hasbro, and probably to Rubble and Bumblebee that so many people have jumped on-board. We have a lot more coming!"
Written by Brian Ruckley, author of the Godless World fantasy trilogy, and illustrated by Angel Hernandez and Cachét Whitman, the new Transformers series explores a critical time in Cybertron’s history: a world at peace, shaken by the first act of violence in generations. As a murder mystery unfolds, young Rubble and his mentor Bumblebee must come to grips with swirling conspiracies shattering the harmony of the society they hold so dear.
This bold new era of Transformers comics builds upon IDW Publishing’s fourteen years of storytelling with this beloved Hasbro brand. Delicately balancing action with startlingly personal drama, IDW’s Transformers comics have earned a fiercely loyal fanbase and much critical acclaim. The fresh new take of the bi-weekly Transformers series is designed to appeal to longtime fans and curious newcomers alike.

Or they just didn't print enough copies.
