Thanks to iTunes we have the three page (four including the cover) for IDW's Transformers #13! Here's the synopsis from iTunes:
"The hunt is on! Chromia and Prowl launch a massive security operation, desperately trying to track down two murderers. Bumblebee visits an injured Windblade, Orion Pax, Sentinel Prime, and Megatron wrestle for control and influence—and nobody knows whose side (if anyone’s) Termagax and Starscream are on in all of this!"

Interesting to note Jhiaxus in his Thrilling 30 rendition which itself was a retool of the Armada Starscream homage released that same year. Despite what some fans have described as slow pacing the title does not appear to be lacking in fun obscure references for fans of all Generations. Enjoy the preview and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

A few issues behind, but I've gotta say I love how the series is using a lot of the pre-existing Generations figures as the basis for characters who didn't get a Siege figure, especially since the toyline is leaving Cybertron earlier than most of us would've probably liked. I've gone about moving TR Sentinel Prime and Quake to my Siege shelf.

Milne is a god, wow. These pages look great, that first one is especially effective.

Kaon, Helex, Deadlock and Fulcrum on the screen behind Jhiaxus, that'd be fun but I won't read into it.

Ah, there is the art I love!

Milne is the best artist for TFs, my opinion of course

Picked up the big hardback omnibus of this, through roughly ten issues or so. Just finished up Germ Free Generation and the silent issue. Story's good, I like the tight casting. The art is pretty bad if I'm honest, the layouts are fine but the details, eh, not so great. Still cool to get some additional context on Genosha.

These ten issues have also done way more than the Bold New Era. Heard it suggested that the Netflix series is supposed to tie in and that's why we're moving at a snail's pace. I really hope this isn't true, it makes the current product suffer and multimedia tie-ins rarely age well.

Thats the first I've heard of that, my thoughts were how would the comic react when the toyline outstrips its pace? Given that hasbro likes the comics to be advertisement, I wonder how it will work.

Some of the art is notoriously atrocious, one artist was drawing 3 issues a month. But did you find it all bad? The first few issues are by Quitely who is rather revered. Both he and Morrison have wirked a lot together and their work is covered in the class Va'al used to teach.

Art in the first few issues was mostly good, it was mainly Cyclops' face that bugs me. Is lumpy the right word? He looked lumpy. The layouts and sequential work were stellar regardless, no complaints there.

Read the Xorn focused issue (127) yesterday where John Paul Leon did pencils with Sienkiewicz on inks and some of those pages were really really nice to look at, that last page especially.

Oh man, I absolutely LOVE that art. It was such a breath of fresh air while i was reading that run the first time. It's not your typical art, but it works. And yes, I feel the same about Quitely's Cyclops. I find his Emma frost costume also odd, I feel Van Sciver makes it work better (his art was probably the most traditional of the bunch).
