IDW Publishing's Editor in Chief Chris Ryall has slipped in a non April's Fools day sneak peek at some art from the upcoming Spotlight: Wheelie issue over on his blog.

Spotlight: Wheelie's art and colours will both be done by Klaus Scherwinski, with Simon Furman scribing the issue due in June 2008.

You can check out the preview page of lineart below or over on Ryall's blog, by clicking here.



And more Wheelie good news keeps on flowing in, with IDW Publishing's new Transformers Editor Brenton Titpton also updating his blog with a very Retro styled preview of the Spotlight Wheelie cover also penned by artist Klaus Scherwinski.

Be warned that the Retro cover does reveal other character s who will appear in the Wheelie Spotlight.

You can check out the image below, or by heading over to Tipton's Blog.

The three Deceps are Reflector...that was not foreseen.

Interesting page of art, reminds of the Matrix...'Reload!!!' as the kids wheel the huge rounds of machine gun ammo out in the middle of battle.

Looks like it will be fun--except the big silly godzilla, but hey you can't win 'em all! :D

Nice, we've got both Magnus 7 Reflector in this, maybe it won't be as bad as I originaly thought.

Reflector!? Wow. I was not expecting that. I was hoping for the Insecticons, but I am not complaining whatsoever! Wow.

Also...isn't that (considering his name and his appearance) Chaos from the episode of the same name? Interesting. I didn't like that episode except for minty green Kup, but this sure does have me interested!

I couldn't care less about Wheelie (sorry, kid), but I love the retro cover just for Reflector. That was nice.

Certain trio of Decepticons?

Might as well scrape the bottom of the barrel and throw in Spectro, Viewfinder and Spyglass.

However, Flamefeather, Sparkstalker and Cindersaur would be interesting.



Can't believe I flippantly called that.
