One is a kind, caring and sweet person who wants to make a difference. The other is brash and feels isolated from a world that would paint it as an outsider. Somehow, they find a common bond and fall in love, which makes both of their lives a little bit more complete. The archetypes behind the classic fairy tale "The Beauty and the Beast" are ones you can spot again and again in stories dating back centuries. We've assembled some of our favorite examples of "beauty and beast" romances in comics.
James Roberts' work on IDW's Transformers franchise is some of the most explicitly political storytelling in comics right now.
Politics is a core theme of Roberts' entire Transformers work, and while the comics do have some of the best action, romance and comedy, they're also all about refusing to let anyone else make your decisions for you.
There are many ships in fandom, but Transformers is all but unique in that Transformers ships can feature people who turn into ships. A ship-based ship is therefore provably superior, and what is also provable is this: Nautica and Velocity, from Lost Light (formerly known as More Than Meets the Eye) are 100% in love.
Many ships are based on unfounded speculation, but not this one: this is based on hard, provable facts, with every assertion true because it’s backed up by the weight of cold, steely logic.
I'm relatively new to the world of being a fan of Transformers, but I feel like I can tell when I see a pretty amazing action figure of one of those characters. ThreeA's new Optimus Prime Classic Edition certainly fits the bill, standing 16" tall with 59 points of articulation, interchangeable parts that include an Energon Axe and magnetically attached wheel wells, and a whole list of features besides.
There's just one problem: It doesn't actually transform into a truck. Well, that and the fact that it'll set you back $390, but I feel like the former is the bigger issue here.
A hero is defined by their villains, and comic books are filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of our favorite heroes, and we need your help to do it!
You voted to see who the ultimate Transformers villain was, and we’ve tabulated the results and assembled a video counting down the definitive top 10. Did your favorite make this list? There’s only one way to find out!
In the latest of our galleries celebrating the best covers of the year, we're looking at the best covers from IDW.
IDW maintained its impressive and diverse line of licensed properties in 2016, from Ninja Turtles to Little Ponies, as well as ambitiously expanding and collating its Hasbro properties under the "Revolution" banner, and reviving and reinventing the Micronauts, M.A.S.K., and Rom.
Ho ho ho, friends! It's the end of the year, and that means that pretty much everyone is running a sale on Comixology right now --- which means that there's actually so much in there that it's impossible to narrow it down to just one.
So once you've put the partridge in its pear tree and shipped it off to your true love, why not grab a cup of wassail and treat yourself --- or a friend in need of a last-minute gift --- to a full twelve picks for comics to pick up for as much as 60% off this Christmas?
This week, we're looking at possibly the most popular non-superhero franchise in all of comics, The Transformers! There's so many villainous 'bots that we've had to pare down the list to the best of the best, and now it's your call as to which one gets to sit at the top spot and claim the title of best Transformers villain ever.
IDW's Revolution crossover might be coming to a close, but that doesn't mean that things are slowing down for the Hasbro properties that have all been thrown into the same universe. In March, the Revolutionaries are faced with Cobra Commander, the secrets behind the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand will finally be revealed, the crew of the Lost Light are trapped with no choice but to save the universe (again), and --- perhaps most importantly --- we're finally getting to see Art Baltazar and Franco do a story with Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes.
That's right, y'all: Revolution is getting the Aw Yeah! treatment with a story where Micronauts foe Baron Karza reads a bunch of GI Joe comics and then finds out that Snake Eyes is very real. Check out all the IDW/Hasbro solicits for more information!
We talked with Transformers: Forged to Fight creative director Cuz Parry about the upcoming mobile fighter, including what lessons were learned on Contest of Champions and just how the Generation 1 and cinematic universes would collide.
