IDW April 2014 Transformers Comics

IDW Publishing has released their publishing plans for April 2014. This month is probably one of the biggest for Transformers comics since All Hail Megatron many years ago. The Dark Cybertron is over and in its aftermath the images tease several revelations - return of Optimus Prime as leader of the Autobots, return to Earth, and Autobot Megatron? A new tie-in series called Windblade focuses on a new creation from IDW and Hasbro that was a result of an online poll where fans chose the characters attributes such as being female, an Autobot, a flyer and so forth. The result is a new character entering the Transformers universe with a toy to follow sometime in the summer as part of the Generations line. Last is what seems like a wonderful walk down memory lane with Transformers Legacy that collects all the box art from the first 10 years of Transformers. For the full details of IDW's other books including GI Joe, Star Trek, and more click here.

Transformers Legacy: A Celebration of Transformers Package Art
Jim Sorenson, Bill Forster (w)
Remember the thrill of tearing open the wrapping on Christmas morning, discovering a brand new TRANSFORMERS toy in a shiny new box? While the toys were amazing in their own right, what made the packages stand head-and-shoulders above the competing action figures on shelves was the stunning box art. Transformers: Legacy collects hundreds of beautifully airbrushed paintings from the iconic first decade of The Transformers. Essays and interviews from the original illustrators give unprecedented insight into the process behind the art. This book is chocked full of extras, including never before seen artwork from toys that never were, original design sketches, catalog artwork, and more.
