IDW Transformers November solicits. [x]
More Than Meets the Eye #35:
(W) James Roberts
Days of Deception begins with… PEACE AND HAPPINESS! To be honest, there’s not much we can say about this issue without giving away the life-changing events of last issue. What we can say is this: everything’s fine. There’s no conflict, no sadness, no angst. Why is this a problem?
The Transformers (formerly Robots in Disguise) #35:
(W) John Barber (A/CA) Andrew Griffith
Days of Deception begins! PROWL and the CONSTRUCTICONS hunt the world’s deadliest game-three humans with a history of fighting CYBERTRONIANS! Lines are drawn as human and machine alike are drawn into-the ONYX INTERFACE!
Drift: Empire of Stone #1:
(W) Shane McCarthy (A/CA) Guido Guidi
DRIFT RETURNS! Last year, TRANSFORMERS readers were shocked when DRIFT left the AUTOBOTS in disgrace… and now he’s alone, on a mission to clean up the darkest depths of the galaxy-until RATCHET shows up to try to bring him home!
(W) Chris Metzen, Flint Dille (A/CA) Livio Ramondelli
END OF THE ROAD! The final secrets of war for CYBERTRON are revealed! Everything has been leading to this-war has engulfed OPTIMUS PRIME’S world, and MEGATRON stands on the verge of triumph! But can any survive the battle of the titans?!
Barber/Griffith being credited on the MTMTE covers is a mistake, it’ll be corrected by the time these hit print (also we need a new tag for RID since it’s dropping the title).
Okay so I’m both yay and nay for the upcoming comics. The MTMTE one has most of my interest because that’s the one I’m always waiting for. The RID one looks interesting but I really need to catch up with it.
The Drift mini series….well, I have mixed feelings about. I’m sure it’s gonna be cool and have tons of great art but….I really don’t want another thing featuring Drift. Gimme something with Pharma or Trepan or Sunstreaker or Rung or Fort Max or Rodimus or anyone really! Drift has had enough, there are other characters that need love too. (I’m also not looking forward to the increase of Ratchet/Drift that’s going to come of this, I just don’t like the pairing.)
The last one just makes me want to cry. I’m sorry, the art is ugly and they should not let that artist work on anymore comics.
