"Kup no more". I like it! Shoulda had a trash can and his Autobot sigil, his rifle, and his cy-gar in it for additional effect!!

I'm also pretty happy they still have the same design for Springer as the Thrilling 30 voyager. Still relevant!! ;)^

This could have been some final farewell for Kup, but no, instead he dies pointlessly in some terrible crossover comic PURELY for shock value. Hoping they treat Kup’s death with a little more of the storytelling that it deserves.

Couldn’t agree more.

Also, I’m quite tired of this whole “Civil War” style friend vs friend crap every storytelling medium wants to push now. After Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers, Impactor and Springer should not be trying to kill one another. :WRECKERS:

Here’s hoping that it’s just a marketing ploy and they’re on the same side. Also, hopefully Sandstorm gets his moment of redemption.

Either way, can’t wait. Already scratched off pampers from May’s budget and added this book. Sorry kids lol.

Isn't the" Kup no more", a reference to a spider-man cover and book. And Roche happens to be a Spider-man guy right now, right? Cool connection, if my memory is serving. Yeah, I'll google it.

Edit: and now the trash can comment makes sense.

That's what I was going for. ;)

Do I have to read the second series for Requiem? Or should I just opt for the trade containing all three?

You should read Sins before you read Requiem, helps show where everyone is at and why. It's also a great series by itself

^Just be aware that SotW is pure tonal whiplash from LSotW. Nick Roche was going through some heavy life stuff while working on SotW and it shows. It shows in a good way, to me, but it's definitely an emotional, somewhat somber story as opposed to Last Stand. I think the art speaks well to that point.

Second tip for SotW: read it slow and take in the layouts/environments. There's some immersion required to fully appreciate it imo.

Some colours from Burcham, over different artist lines.

I always find it fascinating how much of a difference a colorist can have on different art. Good colorists are so important and often undervalued

While we had seen the lineart and initial solicitation bio for the last IDW Publishing Transformers book by Nick Roche, the artist has shared a full colour image of the cover - thanks to Josh Burcham - for Requiem of the Wreckers, the one-shot that concludes the story of the nastiest nice guys around, featuring spiders, lips, terror, shock, violence, and secrets. Lots of secrets.

Take a look below, and make sure to order the book through your local comic book store to bump up its numbers and reach!


Here's the deal: Following Kup's death, Springer and Verity's domestic peace dissolves. Springer reaches out to the only surviving link to his past: Impactor (last seen joining terror cell MAYHEM). Cue a road trip, ire from an anti-TF campaigner, and all loose ends cauterised...

We wanna make sure no one missed out on this, and PRE-ORDERS is how that works. And I'm sure it's a done deal that this niche irregular title filled with A-Listers will outsell the Unicron books AND Lost light/Optimus Prime finales combined, but we'd love the numbers...!

And if you want to get hold of a SIGNED copy of this one-shot, please consider pre-ordering with @TheBigBang_. They deliver super swiftly and worldwide, and I'll be there on delivery day with my sharpie and lipstick to add value to your copy.

So it all ends with Verity, just like it all started with her.

Forgot to post about how hyped this cover got me. Not only the Overlord tease but egads, Tarantulas too! A month to go. I'm not ready.

I had to join up to say how glad I am Nick Roche is getting this chance to address how awfully pointless Kup's death was in the IDVerse.
