"Transformers Spotlight: Soundwave

Presenting the next triumphal one-shot focusing on some of the best-loved (or loathed) characters from the TRANSFORMERS Universe. The spotlight falls on SOUNDWAVE, the Decepticon intelligence officer with a knack of, first and foremost, looking out for number one! Confronted (on Earth, in 1984!) by an impending catastrophe only he can avert, will Soundwave, for once, consider the bigger picture? By Simon Furman and Marcelo Matere. "

This is it! The all-out, no-holds-barred battle you’ve all been waiting for... OPTIMUS PRIME vs. MEGATRON! In the icy wasteland between Russia and Brasnya, the two titans clash for the first time in many millennia, and MEGATRON’s playing for keeps. Empowered by Ore-13, MEGATRON wants nothing less than the AUTOBOT leader’s complete and utter eradication. And the way things are going… he might just get his wish! By Simon Furman (Transformers: Stormbringer) and E.J. Su (Transformers: Infiltration), with a variant cover once again provided by Klaus Scherwinski."

"The Transformers: War Within, Vol. 1 TPB
Before Stormbringer, before the Beast Wars, before even Generation One, there was... The War Within. Four million years before the TRANSFORMERS came to Earth, civil war rocks their home world of CYBERTRON, and OPTIMUS PRIME faces his first—and greatest—challenge. But before he can deal with the Decepticons, the new Autobot leader must look within... and decide if CYBERTRON is worth saving at all! If you think you know the TRANSFRORMERS... think again! IDW is proud to present an all-new collection of this long-out-of-print tale from the TRANSFORMERS’ past."
