Transformers #6 First Look – Preview Of First Story Arc Finale

This past week’s Transformers #5 was a major issue for many reasons. A few of them had to do with the debuts of returning classic Transformers, Arcee, and Devastator. These returns set up the finale for Daniel Warren Johnson’s first story arc in his Transformers run. Now ahead of its March 13th release Skybound and Image Comics have provided us with a preview of Transformers #6 to share.

As you’ll see from the preview Devastator’s power and size have placed Optimus Prime and the Autobots’ backs against the wall once again. This works into the teaser of Transformers #6 indicating we will see someone not survive this battle of the first story arc in the series.

In the arc-ending finale, ONE WILL STAND. ONE WILL FALL. The Autobots vs. The Decepticons. This is the first arc finale, and someone isn’t going to survive. 

To mark the finale of the first story arc Transformers #6 will arrive in stores with a main cover by series art team Daniel Warren Johnson and Mike Spicer. Additional variant covers by André Lima Araújo, Orlando Arocena, Eric Caneteand Joe Quinones will also be available. You can check out the covers and three-page preview of Transformers #6 below:

Transformers #6 will arrive in comic book shops and digital storefronts on March 13th. You can learn more from Skybound and Image Comics press release below.
