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

IDW Publishing fire up their launch of 2000AD based material into the US market in October 2012 with The Zaucer of Zilk. Sure Judge Dredd won't be far behind, but let's hope Slaine and the rest of the range drop in from time to time too. As for IDW's October 2012 solicitations, these covers and hits rank the best.

COVER OF THE MONTH: Andrew Wildman - Transformers: Regeneration One #84

The series that continues along the continuity of Marvel's former Transformer series scores a hit with a cover thatshows on wicked Decepticon (Megatron), one helpless Autobot (Ratchet) and Starscream the caniving schemer caught in the middle!

IDW says: LAST STAND! Things go from bad to worse as MEGATRON tightens his remorseless grip on planet Earth. Can the Wreckers save Kup? Can they reach the Ark in time? The odds have never been more stacked against them. But you know what they say: "When all hope is gone..." And what exactly is up with Starscream?

CLOSE CONTENDER: Renae DeLiz - Womanthology: Space #2
This alien stories spotlight issue of the female comic creator created anthology series gets right to the point, with one stylish yet spooky alien scene.

Other IDW October 2012 highlights include; Card gamers rejoice with Magic The Gathering: Path of Vengeance #1, Gil Kane's Spidey work gets its collected in Gil Kane's Amazing Spider-Man Artists Edition, and the festive season draws near with Mars Attacks The Holidays one-shot.

 What do you think?  Sound off below. For October 2012 solicits from other publishers as they're released click here, or for more IDW, follow the jump!


  1. oh check it out that TF cover has the old corner art from the 80s marvel series. that was some of my favorite corner of all time followed closely by the signature corner art for ROM spaceknight of course.

  2. It might not be the exact same cover Dave, but it is by the same artist who used to do the old series so it should look just as great! And yip thems was some tasty covers mate!

  3. That is a sweet, sweet TF cover! And I agree all the way w/Shlomo, that the corner section of the comic was an added treat that I now miss.

    I hope to stumble across this series when I finally hit my not-so local comic store in 3 weeks.

    I'm just glad the old crew's starting where they left things from the last series, as there was so much to follow up on, mostly this plot-line between Starscream, Megatron, Galavatron, and Rachet.

  4. Thanks Dale, you know I've had a post on corner box art planned ever since I started this thing but I thought I might be the only one interested in such stuff. Maybe not!
