Looks like a great month of comics. Do we have any clarification if Skywarp is in Scarlett's UnMASKed Force?

Can we get this movie instead of the garbage they are putting out every few years, currently?

I look forward to Onyx and the Liege! I'm also curious as to how Soundwave ends up playing out. He is one of the best IDW characters.

So glad to see some Casey Coller artwork showing up this month too!

David Mariotte shared some of the pages from the first issue of Scarlett's Strike Force. Skywarp is still in there.
