After yesterday's full reveal, from artist Marcelo Matere, of the incentive cover for the IDW Publishing ongoing Transformers comics series Optimus Prime, we now have - via fellow Seibertronian Sunstar again - the inked lineart of the same Optimus Prime and Onyx Prime piece, for those of you interested in the pre-coloured artwork!

You can see the gigantic piece mirrored below, as Matere shared on his Twitter account the scan of the full board - and then join the conversation in the Energon Pub, and let us know what you think of the mythology returning to the series, and what you expect Onyx's role to be!

Some people do pool together and do that, or then resell the other copies on secondary market, or both!

i remember doing that once with one back when dreamwave put out transformers and ended up with a shitload of one issue like 20 just for the variant and decided i wasnt going to do it again but just 10 issues doesnt seem too bad :-?


If comics prices were not as high as they currently are with all major publishers, I'd say go for it! But with 3.99 minimum per issue, I wouldn't recommend it, just for the one cover.
It's cheaper to buy them on eBay than it is to do self-fund an RI order. Way cheaper.

We're headed back into the past again, as Soundwave takes on the narrative frame of the second part of The Falling arc in IDW Publishing's ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime, in issue #16, as Onyx Primal has made his return, with Liege Maximo in tow. Check out below the three-page preview from iTunes, and check back on Seibertron.com in a couple of weeks for more material on the chapter, including a full preview and review.

And in an entirely different tone direction... It may not be the anticipated Sharkticonado script, but the Optimus Prime annual from IDW Publishing's Transformers comics does see Thundercracker's obvious and not at all hammy scriptwriting talents put to good use (in what is probably set before the end of Till All Are One) to create Starscream: The Movie.

Check out below the sneaky preview from iTunes, and head back in a couple of weeks for more!

[quote]THUNDERCRACKER IN: STARSCREAM: THE MOVIE! The good news: somebody finally gave Thundercracker money to make a film. The bad news: it’s Starscream, and he wants a biographical picture to win over the people of Earth. Will Thundercracker stand by his principles or... well, no, he makes the movie.[/quote]

With Earth having control of one of the few remaining energon sources, it would not surprise me in the slightest if starbucks was selling engex or circuit speeders to corner the new giant robot market in this universe's canon.

Soundwave has become one of my favorite cons thanks to this book, and he and Ravage continue to thrill me. Those 2 are/were great IDW characters

All Seekers have gone through some changes, be it personal preference, location (Cybertron vs Earth), or artistic licence that then stuck!
