Last week, IDW tweeted the covers of issue 28 for both More than Meets The Eye and Robots in Disguise. These issues mark the beginning of their “second seasons”, which begin in April after the “Dark Cybertron” crossover event ends in March. The cover of the new Windblade series was also revealed via Twitter. These three titles are all connected by the header “Dawn of the Autobots” and feature a special, connecting variant cover, seen below.
Some interesting things to take note of:
- Optimus Prime is heading to Earth.
- Megatron is an Autobot.
- Windblade, the first ever “fan-built bot”, is one of the very few female Transformers, so I’m glad she’s getting her own series. According to the comic solicitation, readers will also learn the history of Chromia and Nautica, two other female Transformers.
Here are the solicitations:
