comics continuum- Next week Wednesday will be a really good day for IDW's G1 Transformers Comics fans.

As previously reported, a five-page preview for next week's ALL HAIL MEGATRON #10 can be seen at IGN.

Not to be outdone, Comics Continuum now has the five-page preview up for ALL HAIL MEGATRON #10 as well, but they up the ante with the five-page preview for MAXIMUM DINOBOTS #5, also due out on WEDNESDAY, April 15th...along with your taxes being due if you live in the U.S.

You can check out the previews here, and then as you come back from your tax people, dropping the forms off at the post office, or cashing your refund, stop by your local shop to grab these two new issues.

FIRST LOOK: THE TRANSFORMERS: MAXIMUM DINOBOTS #5

The Transformers: Maximum Dinobots #5 will arrive in stores on April 15 from IDW Publishing. The issue is written by Simon Furman, with art by Nick Roche and covers by Roche and Marcelo Matere.

Here's how IDW describes the issue:

"Triumph! Tragedy! This one's got it all. With one battle won, the greatest challenges remain to be faced. For the Dinobots (minus one!), events come full circle, culminating in an explosive battle for survival. Featuring Sunstreaker, Hot Rod, Scorponok, Shockwave, and... one other!"

The Transformers: Maximum Dinobots #5 will be 32 pages and will cost $3.99.


FIRST LOOK: THE TRANSFORMERS: ALL HAIL MEGATRON #10

The Transformers: All Hail Megatron #10 will arrive in stores on April 15 from IDW Publishing. The issue is written by Shane McCarthy, with art by Guido Guidi and covers by Casey Coller and Trevor Hutchison.

Here's how IDW describes the issue:

"Trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots make a desperate stand against the Swarm. Will their lastest ally be enough to...? Meanwhile on Earth, Megatron attempts to fend off a coup by a fellow Decepticon, but a surprise defection could tip the balance."

The Transformers: All Hail Megatron #10 will be 32 pages and will cost $3.99.

interesint stuff.

simon seems to be going in a different direction with this iteration of the dynos. i could never see snarl and co just walking away like that.

ok we ALL know this is simon so odds are there'll be cathartic realisation on their part and they'll come back to help grimlock but it was still shocking in a way to see em be so cold, i mean sludge just got fragged in front of the team. i thought payback would be on the agenda big time.

it makes ya ask questions about just what the dynamics of IDWs dinobots team is really like and certainly its surprise me.

my only problem is this is the LAST issue so we wont get to see it explored more unless we get a sequel.

still i'll definetly get it cause i need my furman fix. :grin:

Looking interesting.

These ain't the brainless G1 Dinobots who follow Grimlock no matter what. I was not expecting anything so permanent as a death either, but I guess since the Furmanverse concludes this issue it doesn't matter who survives and who doesnt as they are likely to just reappear as McCarthy sees fit later on, without any explanation.

AHM is looking promising after the tripe of issue #9, art is much improved too.
