After yesterday's news in the form of solicitations for the IDW Publishing comic due out this November 2018, which you can see again here, we also have two variant covers released on Previews World for the fourth issue of the universe ending mini-series Transformers: Unicron.

Both for the same issue, and featuring the well known Italian names by now of Guido Guidi and Francesco Francavilla, the covers mirrored below show three of the major players in the series: Optimus Prime (in distress) and Aileron and Rom meaning business. Check them out below!

Anyone have any idea when #4 is supposed to come out? I’m not 100% sure on this but wasn’t it supposed to be released this past Wednesday?

Supposed to come out and IDW schedule are mutually exclusive.

Current forecast is to expect cloudy with a chance of deathbringers by September 5th, along with Optimus Prime and Lost Light. Urrrggghh.

I've had a think on it, and have come to a conclusion: I really dislike the "evolved" (my term, not the book's) look of the Maximals and Monstructor. I think the characters are distinct enough to look menacing on their own, but the upgrade or whatever makes them look like boring, nonsense, incompetent generic alien things from a run-of-the-mill summertime scifi movie.

Edit for clarity: the objective quality of the work portraying them is outstanding, it is the concept of the designs that I find bland.

Oh so the visionaries are going to play a part of this? That's going to be interesting then though I wonder if the talisman is just a red herring at this point :-? I expect the way to stop/pacify unicron will come in issue 6

I know I was in the minority that liked visionaries so I’m glad they’re plying a role

And Jesus ironhide! Stop trying to be ceiling cat

Is it just me, or do a lot of artists have a hard time drawing Windblade's face without making it look stretched out and weird?

I heard in a podcast they’ve rescheduled all the finale issues for the same day too in October

I think it’s just her city speaker features that make it look like that. Alex is drawing her face promotional while other have made it more round

I've been keeping the schedule up to date as best I can using Previewsworld (Diamond) at the end of this post: the-transformers-idwverse-a-chronology-p1958414.php#p1958414

I would not be surprised if iTunes, Comixology, or somewhere else has end of month placeholder dates.

I'd rather see these being released on a more spread out schedule, but on the other hand this does save trips to the shop!

Thanks to online comics resource Graphic Policy, we have the last of the three previews for this week's releases from IDW Publishing - Transformers: Unicron #4! The miniseries bumps over the mid way hurdle, and carries on destroying the entire universe as we know it, so check out the full preview below, and join us in the Energon Pub for a discussion, review, and more once the book is released.

NOTE: There is a major character moment happening in the last page of the preview, which we are not mirroring below to avoid spoilers. You can still see it at the link above, or wait for the issue's release.

Well I followed the link: now I am sad. Why do I get the feeling the talisman will work but because unicron isn't sentient like before the poison would take a very long time hence why he goes after earth.

This comes out tomorrow right?

Having re-read their Spotlight about 8 days ago (had no idea this was coming!), man, it works. I wish it didn't but it does.
