COVER SHOTS: The Best From IDW Publishing's August 2012 Solicitations

With Danger Girl meeting G.I. Joe and Star Trek meeting Dr Who, IDW Publishing are bringing together more people then your average mobile network, and giving them twice as much to talk about! Of all their August 2012 solicitations, these three take top cover honours.

COVER OF THE MONTH:
J. SCOTT CAMPBELL - DANGER GIRL / G.I. JOE #2

If only more artists got to draw in this 'wash' style! While Scarlett's good and all, I have to ask, whatever happened to interior pages star Lady Jaye? Growing up I thought she was the main G.I. Josephine? Doesn't matter. It's not like either could take the Baroness!

IDW says: It's the most dangerous event of the summer, and the action continues right here! Cobra's surprise attack has brought the G.I. Joe team to its knees. But when Lady Jaye learns that Flint has gone missing behind enemy lines, she joins forces with the Danger Girls on a covert mission that aims to rescue her man and get the Joes back on their feet!

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #8 and Transformers: Robots In Disguise #8 - Alex Milne Who doesn't like a decent inter-locking cover set? Make it the best Autobots this side of Prime, as part of IDW's Dinobot Month and forget it, it's pop culture gold.
