Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen Movie Prequel: Destiny: Alliance #1

The official prequel to next summer’s “TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN” film kicks off here! “TRANSFORMERS: DESTINY” is comprised of two four-part stories covering events leading up to the film. In the first chapter of the DESTINY story arc, ”ALLIANCE,” readers will learn more about what happened to SECTOR SEVEN, what happened to the AUTOBOTS, and why their war on our planet is far from over.
The comics might give a few hints about the upcoming movie but I am betting it has been designed to remain spoiler free. For example, Sector 7 plays a part in the comic but its always possible that by series end its permanently disbanded resulting in Simmons ending up working at a pizza joint.
Arcee is on the cover but in her first movie design that went unused. Chances are in the movie she will re-format to a new look. Of note to me is the gray character that has a very G1 Megatron aesthetic going for it. I wonder who that character is and what part he plays in the story (and maybe the movie).
Other releases for the month include Maximum Dinobots #1, Transformers Animated #5, All Hail Megatron #6, and few others. Thanks to Darian and Tommy for the links.
