A quick reminder that this week sees the release of the collected (trade paperback) volume of the first five Transformers Spotlight issues (Shockwave, Nightbeat, Hot Rod, Sixshot and Ultra Magnus… all written by me, with art from Nick Roche, Mark Bright, Rob Ruffolo and Robby Musso). It should be in shops Thursday (31st of May) in the US and Friday (1st June) here in the UK. For more details and a preview of cover and interior art, visit the IDW site here and check out the New Releases section. Though self-contained, the Spotlight issues feed into (and out of) the ‘ongoing’ Infiltration/Escalation/Devastation series, so don’t miss out. And on the subject of Escalation, the collected edition of that six-issue series came out last week (and so is available right now in all good book and comic shops… or via Amazon if you’re lazy).

    No shops in Manchester that ever stock IDW tpbs, except Forbidden Planet which only ever gets 1 or 2 in, sells out in about 30 seconds and is overpriced. Bah 😦

    Except that when there’s a public/bank holiday, it tends to shuffle a day, so Thursday US, Friday UK.

    You can buy IDW trades online at Amazon.

    ah that explains it. we dont have our bank holiday till this monday in ireland, hence why they have it in 3rd place already. i reckon the spotlight one will do really well . didnt buy it myself because i managed to get all the individual issues but alot of guys got burned with under ordering on the shockwave one so i predict alot of demand.
