-All Hail Megatron #9
-Revenge of the Fallen Movie Prequel Alliance #4
-Beast Wars Omnibus
All Hail Megatron #9, written by Shane McCarthy, arrives two weeks following #8, in which a major event in the post-"-tion" G1 tale crafted by IDW over the past several years was revealed. With only four issues to go, events are certainly coming to a head, and this issue will no doubt start the ball rolling down that hill.
Revenge of the Fallen: Alliance #4 concludes the "Alliance" arc of the "Destiny" storyline, with an army of Decepticons arriving on Earth in search of their fallen master. With the Autobots and their human allies setting out to meet them at the conclusion of the last issue, this issue will no doubt feature a large scale battle on par with the Mission City battle from the live action feature.
Finally, the Beast Wars Omnibus reprints IDW's three forays into the Beast Wars era: The Gathering written by legendary TF writer Simon Furman, with art credits by Don Figueroa (who made his return to the TF world with the release of Revenge of the Fallen: Defiance #3 this week), The Ascending (also written by Furman, with art by Figueroa and Guido Guidi), and the Sourcebook (written by Furman and fan consultant Benson Yee, featuring artwork from a variety of artists, including Figueroa, Guidi, Dan Kahnna, Rob Ruffolo, Josh Burcham, and Marcelo Matere.)
GI Joe fans, meanwhile, can expect to see issue #2 of "GI Joe: Origins", written by legendary Joe writer Larry Hama and artist Tom Feister.
