Newsarama have posted up an assortment of images from the upcoming IDW Publishing Transformers Series: "All Hail Megatron", thanks to "All Hail" writer Shane McCarthy.

While many of the page previews have already been released in the preview issue "Focus on the Decepticons" which was released by IDW last week, there are a couple of new, never before seen pages as well, showcasing life on Cybertron, and the Decepticon fliers doing what comes naturally to them, as well as our first look at Guido's take on the Insecticons.

"All Hail Megatron" will be a 12 part series, written by Shane McCarthy, and illustrated by Guido Guidi, taking place deep within the pre-established IDW Universe, set 1 year after the completion of the Furman penned "Revelation" Saga.

You can check out all of the posted images on newsarama.com, by clicking here, or the new images that were not previewed in "Focus on the Decepticons" below:

For those who have yet to read "Focus on the Decepticons", the page where the skies are filled with Decepticons is an indicator of the mayhem and carnage that will be wreaked over the course of this series.

Mindless destruction and rampage. Hundreds of thousands of slaughtered humans. Earth torn apart by the Decepticons... oh, yes, I think I'm gonna love this series.

I'm so happy! I wish I could just go to sleep at night and see that second sky picture in my dreams. Like counting sheep to sleep, only evil flying robots. I-)

Holy Crap!

Not much more one can say about "All Hail"

Just simply "Holy Crap!"




Pyro is excited about Megatron taking over Earth.

VEERRRYY excited! :CON: :twisted:

Are they going to explain why the seeker triplets are now F-15's instead of F-22's like they have been in the previous arcs?

Yes, why are the Seekers F-16's again?

And what are those two ships leaving Cybertron for?

Is someone trying to fudge the G1 animated continuity and the IDW continuity together in some kind of all covering What If?

Awesome!
Look they didn't just find Lazerbeak, but the Insectecons too!

I think they did state that the Seekers new disguises would be explained...I thought I read that somewhere. :???:

Hopefully the Insecticons all get some personality in this. I am really hoping for a cool Kickback!

Yeah in an interview with Comicnewsi or something Shane McCarthy stated that there would be an in story reason for the change.

Could possibly be that the military saw the Seekers in F-22 mode, so in order to gain the advantage of surprise he had them change... Not that it seems to matter with them causing so much destruction.

You can order them from IDW's online store at their website http://www.idwpublishing.com

But All Hail Megatron won't be out until July, but you can get the subscription for "Reign of Starscream" I've already placed my order for that series and I am eagerly awaiting issue #1. :grin:

I was thinking that. Plus it's an excuse to draw lots of lovely, what appear to be, Masterpiece style Seeker robot modes.

Damn this comics just going to be too good.

maybe the two shuttles leaving Cybertron isn't so much a fudge, more a homage, an allusion to G1?

Starscream's unit leaving for Earth and Prowl's unit to follow?

Who cares really? It's iconic.

With any luck my copy of Focus : Decepticons will turn up this week.

Then begins the appetite.

I want Kickback to charm the pants off me in All Hail. I've never seen him strut his supposed stuff. I know he's cute, but he's supposedly a smooth talker or something too.

All I've seen is his voracious appitite.
