Thanks again to our own ScottyP we've learned that Previews World has updated their listings with the incentive cover for IDW's Transformers issue #11 with art by none other than fan favorite Guido Guidi! Depicted in this cover is Quake sporting his old double Targetmaster pals Tip Top and Heater in their combined super weapon form. Anyone who's been reading the series so far will note neither Targetmaster (Battlemaster? Micromaster?) has made an appearance so far and as of this writing it is unknown if this is just a nod to the fans or actual foreshadowing of characters to debut in the issue.

Written by Brian Ruckley with art by Andrew Griffith and Bethany McGuire-Smith the issue is due August 28th at a comic shop near you. Pick up a copy and share your thoughts with your fellow Seibertronians in the forum and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

From Preview World's description:
"Chromia and Windblade raid a Rise base in search for clues about the identity of Brainstorm's murderer, only to be discovered-and the Rise isn't happy. Meanwhile, Bumblebee sees his first bit of action as the Ascenticon Guard is called to defend a building under siege! As questions are answered, more mysteries abound! Who commands the Rise? In Shops: Aug 28, 2019"

It is almost as if the cover, alongside verbs such as 'raid ' 'bit of action' and 'under siege' in the solicit are intentionally trying to address vocal responses to this book? >:oP

Honestly, if the galaxies book turns out as interesting as the above article suggests, they should just cut their losses with the "main" book.

What do you mean "Hanging on to his TR Wardrobe"? He looks nothing like that figure outside the head

Shoot and I have TR Quake right here on the shelf I goofed. I thought he’d been sporting his TR shell earlier in the series I think I was going off that memory. My bad. Good call.

In the series, he's using the Titans Return retooled Hardhead body, IMS.

Ok so I’m not completely off. Just jumped the gun a bit in regards to the cover, which does look awesome I really like Guidi’s art.

Thanks to an update at Comixology we have summaries for the first two issues of Transformers Galaxies! While some fans have found the new regular ongoing Transformers title fulfilling others have been left wanting. These same fans are hoping the new Transformers Galaxies series will help fill the void left when IDW's previous universe ended their continuity. Each issue is listed at $3.99 with issue 1 expected September 25th and issue 2 expected October 30th. Enjoy the summaries below and let us know your thoughts in the forums, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Issue #1:
Written by: Tyler Bleszinski
Art by: Livio Ramondelli
"Cybertron, a planet of vast beauty and extraordinary cities, wasn’t always so perfect. After the War Against the Threefold Spark, Cybertron was decimated, and new bots—the Constructicons—emerged to help rebuild it grander and more amazing than ever before. But where are these bots now? Why have they been erased from Cybertron’s history? And what are they planning to do about it? Find out in “Constructicons Rising,” Part One!"


Image
Issue #2:
Written by: Tyler Bleszinski
Art by: Livio Ramondelli
"“CONSTRUCTICONS RISING,” PART 2! The Constructicons are training—they know their time is coming. They’re almost ready to stand at their once glorious height. They just need a sign and some energon. When a mysterious benefactor arrives promising to provide both, how can the Constructicons resist?"

I will pick these up but I wish they'd get rid of Livio. Not a fan of his art at all.

Agreed. Never liked it. The Primacy Trilogy is largely unreadable with no discernible visual narrative (aside from it being meaningless retcon, of course) and most of CHAOS, too. I thought the reboot was supposed to be a fresh start on every level.

Thanks to a post to artist Clayton Crain's website we've learned of an alternate cover to Transformers: Galaxies #1. Mr. Crain has certainly constructed an amazing piece of art showing the king of the Combiners in mid assembly. The issue is written by Tyler Bleszinski with art by long time Transformer artist Livio Ramondelli. The issue is expected to ship next month which is just a few weeks away. Also shown below is the finalized art for the regular retail cover, and also an interview with the writer and artist from the San Diego Comic Con last month where they go into detail of their own personal histories with the characters. Enjoy the images and as always share your view with the Seibertron crew in the forums. Make sure to stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Artwork looks great. Im very interested in this series and where it goes. Do we know if it's a mini series or another, longer run?

The way I understood I think it's sort of like the old Spotlight stuff, but instead of a series of one shots, it's effectively a collection of mini series focused on different characters. According to the wiki after the Constructicons they'll be looking at Cliffjumper, then Arcee, then Ultra Magnus.

Thanks! That would be nice. A bit more bread and butter to the characters versus a one shot. Now I'm really optimistic about this series.

Hey Soundwave we’ve done a few articles about this so far including a way cool panel interview from SDCC2019 just go up to the main forums and type in Galaxies and that should pull you up everything we’ve got so far. Hope that helps ;)^ if you’re this excited now wait till you hear the writers talk about the issues coming down the road. It totally got me pumped.

This series is looking like it has a lot of potential and I believe is currently planned as a 12 issue maxi-series but I could easily see this going beyond that.

This mini series, in concept, does open up a really maligned idea of Transformers and Combiner Teams specifically. What they actually do, their role within Cybertronian society? Why "Constructicons": Obvious yet ignored explanation: They are the builders of Cybertron!

If Galaxies follows through with this concept, it could literally add the last untapped concept of depth to the G1 characters.

Exciting stuff right? Gets me all goosebumpy :lol:

I’m totally ready for it.

Infinitely more interesting than the lame duck that is the Regular Series...

The Spotlights kind of served as a bridge in a lot of ways in the prior run wouldn’t you say? Very much from that first phase into the gosh would it be Dark Cybertron? It’s starting to all blur together. I’m wondering if there may be a similar template at play here. Like time to kick things up. Maybe. We’ll see. The regular series has me not wanting to get my hopes up too much.

The -Ations intermixed with the Spotlights, was one of the most creative and innovative ways I've seen, to establish world building very quickly. The first phase (Origin up until Last Stand of The Wreckers) was probably the best Transformers has ever been, in print.

Having read quite a bit of the post-Death of Optimue Prime, via the part work now, I don't rate any of it as comparable. In my view (just like IDW 2.0) they either lost sight of or didn't know how to convey Transformers stories. So they just told the stories they wanted to tell and slapped Transformers likenesses and branding on top of it.

Personality I rate the stuff after death of Optimus Prime better then before ;) then the pre all hail Megatron series (-ations series and spotlights) then AHM and most of the Costa run. But of course this is all opinions.

The thing with MTMTE/RiD/LL/OP/TAAO I found, with different character designs, is they could be anything. LSoTW, -Ations, Origin, Spotlights (well, most of them) etc have an unmistakable Transformers air/vibe to them. I think the post-DoOP stuff was more interested in being quirky, with slapstick comedy and GoT type intrigue, than in sticking to the source material. I've said before, Furman left virtually everything from Headmasters to Micromasters to Pretenders, in play following Spotlight: Sideswipe. They literally had the entire Transformers toybox open to them and what did they do with it? Absolutely nothing...

Just like IDW 2.0
