Thanks to the fine folks over at Newsarama, we have word of more non-lettered preview pages of the upcoming Transformers / Ghostbusters crossover comic! In these new preview pages, we get to see the immediate aftermath of Megatron and Gozer's meeting, which involves some violence against kind little demon dog thingies and then presumably a threat, right before a giant Starscream appears in the sky, with the heads of his enemies affixed as a necklace! Megatron proceeds to blast the real Starscream before taking off into the sky.

Along with these new pages, we also get a new cover, showcasing Starscream's ghost leading a hoard of Kremzeek against the Ghostbusters.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I have a theory, Gozer just gave them the choice of the Destructor’s form, and this is what popped into Starscream’s mind

I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Starscream!

perhaps, but If i recall from a book i've read, Gozer warps your choice to their ideal form just in case you thought you could trick them.

The one and the same, The official version with what looks like Giygas on the back cover do to it being a bunch of ghostly faces in red,
on topic in a way I hope they put that book in the comic like make it a cybertronian artifact. i mean canon wise, it weighs over 30 pounds and the size of a coffee table, sounds more in scale to our boys in metal

I agree with this. In the panel before Megatron is pointing at Starscream like it's his fault and then shoots him the arm.

Yeah, it's weird, but it sure looks like it.

Tom Waltz continues to be a valuable source for all of our latest IDW Transformers news, and today, he brings to us a new panel from the upcoming 5-part Transformers x Ghostbusters series! This new panel shows us the first meeting of the Ghostbusters and Starscream's ghost, who has appeared in a lot of the advertising media for the mini series. What the results of this meeting will be we can only guess, but it is exciting to see Starscream's ghost meeting up with the Ghostbusters. The artwork for the panel was done by series artist Dan Schoening.

Check out the panel below, and stay tuned as we edge closer and closer to the premier of this new crossover series!

Ever get that feeling a psychotic ghost robot from another planet is lurking just behind you? #EgonSpengler will in June when #Transformers/#Ghostbusters #GhostsOfCybertron hits stores! @erikburnham @dannyschoening #LuisAntonioDelgado @IDWPublishing @Ghostbusters @hasbro

Thanks to the fine folks over at Comicbook.com, we have a new interview with IDW's Transformers x Ghostbusters writer Erik Burnham! Burnham sat down with comicbook.com and chatted about the new series, and brought up some new information that fans may be excited to hear about.

For one thing, we get a little bit more information and description on Ectotron. Not a lot, but we do get some more. By the sounds of it, he and Ray are going to get along really well. It's also interesting to hear that Ectotron is a bit of a writing challenge seeing as how he doesn't really have a "voice" yet to really go by, unlike pretty much the rest of the cast.

Another cool hint was that, despite the small cast, there are 2 characters that Burnham favors over others: Grimlock and Starscream. While it appears as though Grimlock will not appear much, Burnham felt he really needed to get him into the crossover. And as for Starscream? Well, he's Burnham's favorite to write!

Check out some parts of the interview below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

"Part of the reason I think they've lasted so long is the foundation: Ghosts are cool. Robots are cool. It's obviously more than that," Burnham said. "Ghostbusters explores dealing with the unknown with humor and curiosity. Transformers is (depending on where you look) anything from a straight-up fight of good against evil, to a more nuanced look at disagreements between two groups that come to war (which, no, not the same thing.)"

...

As for the team-up, the Autobots and Decepticons will all benefit from the humor the Ghostbusters are known for. "I think the Ghostbusters bring the humor out of the robots that they meet, and I know those Cybertronians crank up the stakes of the action. It's a good mix for the party," Burnham said.

Burnham is well acquainted with the Ghostbusters and Transformers, so writing those adored characters didn't present much of an issue. Ectotron though was another story.

"To be honest, the biggest challenge is Ectotron," Burnham said. "He's a new character, so he doesn't yet have an established voice that I can clearly hear. You give me Starscream, I will hear the inflections of Chris Latta. Megatron? Frank Welker. Optimus Prime? Peter Cullen. And, of course, the Ghostbusters have been in my head for YEARS. Those voices are all very clear and etched into my brain – but not Ectotron. Not yet. I know he'll gel before the end of the book, though, and I'm looking forward to seeing what his voice ultimately becomes!"

...

"Ectotron is a nerd in the same way that Ray Stantz is a nerd," Burnham said. "He's a little defensive about his title, and he doesn't get sent out on missions much – which is why Optimus Prime sending him out to investigate a signal he discovered means so much to him. He's going to grow through his adventure, as we all do, and putting him through those paces is going to be a lot of fun."

...

"I'm only a couple of issues into the story right now, but so far? Hands down, Starscream is just chewing all the scenery (which is what he does)! Even above Peter Venkman, so far," Burnham said. "But I'm just getting started, and there are others who have yet to get their time to shine... That may seem like a vague answer, but it's my way of not saying "wait'll you see" and then spoiling something! We can't have that, now can we?"

...

Another Transformers favorite has always been Grimlock, so we had to ask if the beloved Dinobot would find his way into the story. It turns out he just might make an appearance.

"I'll tell you this now," Burnham said. "I wrote an outline, and it kept the cast pretty small, comparatively to the size of the available cast. And then Dan and Luis turned in a connecting cover with virtually EVERYONE. (Not quite everyone, but man, there's a dense lineup on those covers!)"

"...And I saw a couple that just BEGGED to be brought in, even though they weren't in the outline. "How can I not find room for so-and-so?" I said. And Grimlock, he is definitely a guy I need to add. Even if it's just for a PANEL. He's too awesome to be denied!"

The title of the first episode in the G1 cartoon is " More than Meets the Eye: Part 1" not " More Than Meets the Eyes "

Also holy crap is that Sunstorm!?
