    Default JUNE 2020 Transformers comics and books

    NOTE - see post #2 for updated released dates for April-June comics, as comics for April and May were pushed back. (these dates could still change at any time)
    NOTE 2 - ignore the dates in post #2 as they have already changed. The listing added in the first part of this first post has the updated release dates from the Previews website AS OF JUNE 21st, for the comics that were delayed earlier this year.
    There is also no guarantee that these release dates will be met if there are still ongoing delays with printing and distribution within America if you import them (and before they even come to Australia if you get them locally).
    Digital formats may not follow these dates either.

    JUNE 9
    Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase 2 Vol. 11 Hardcover (new date from Amazon America)

    JUNE 17
    Transformers #20

    JUNE 24

Transformers ’84: Legends & Rumors is the perfect companion book to the Secrets & Lies mini-series.

    SRP: $3.99

    Transformers ’84: Secrets and Lies #3
    (W) Simon Furman (A/CA) Guido Guidi (CA) Casey Coller
    With Megatron, Shockwave, and the Decepticon brass gone, the power vacuum on Cybertron leads many Decepticon commanders to stake their claims on the world. And with the Decepticons divided, which Autobots will step up to take command? Meanwhile, on Earth, Grimlock wanders into the strangest battle yet!
    SRP: $3.99

    Transformers: Galaxies #10
    (W) Brandon M. Easton (A/CA) Andrew Griffith (CA) Thomas Deer
    “Storm Horizon,” Part One! Ultra Magnus, one of the four Great Generals of Cybertron’s last war, finds himself far from home and his glory days on a deep space exploratory mission. But when his mentor, Alpha Trion, is reported missing from a nearby world, Magnus must solve a mystery with roots in an even more distant past that reaches from Cybertron to the unknown regions.
    SRP: $3.99

    Transformers vs. Terminator #4
    (W) David Mariotte, John Barber, Tom Waltz (A) Alex Milne (CA) Gavin Fullerton (CA) Billie Montfort

    Looking through the Previews/Diamond site, these are the "current" release dates for the Transformers comics that had been delayed from (mostly) April.
    Note that a number of comics planned for June are still coming out in June, sometimes before the issues that were scheduled for April and May.

    Transformers (ongoing)
    Issue 20 - June 17 (originally for April)
    Issue 21 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 22 - August 12 (originally for June)
    Issue 23 - August 26 (probably originally meant for July)

    Transformers 84
    Issue 3 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 2 - July 1 (originally for May)
    Issue 1 - July 15 (originally for April)
    Issue 4 - August 12 (probably originally meant to be out in July)

    Transformers 84 100 page 1-shot - June 24 (scheduled for June)

    Transformers Galaxies
    Issue 8 - June 24 (originally for April)
    Issue 9 - June 24 (originally for May)
    Issue 10 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 7 - July 8 (originally for March but was already late)
    (no Issue 11 listed, which should have been in the August listings, but this series was already running behind)

    My Little Pony & Transformers
    Issue 1 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 2 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 3 - September 9 (originally for May)
    Issue 4 - October 7 (originally for May)

    Transformers Vs Terminator
    Issue 4 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 2 - June 24 (originally for April)
    Issue 3 - August 19 (originally for May)

    Also updated the Amazon release dates on the TPB listings, and pretty much all of the IDW items have also been pushed back, including the MLP/TFs and Transformers 84, both being pushed back 3-4 months.

    I expect more push-backs noted in the next two months.

    A four page preview, without text, of the first issue of the Transformers 84 mini-series... with some commentary from Simon Furman.

    Looks good. Shame they will ruin it with text and unlikely / unnecessary continuity retcons.

    The Geoff Senior Dinobots cover looks awesome: https://twitter.com/jcburcham/status...411457536?s=20

    (I mean Deluge is there? really?)

    The updated dates from Previews/Diamond in post #2 are no longer reliable, as IDW have released their updated dates on their website, which make more sense, as they only note new dates for the earlier issues, which should mean the later issues will be pushed back, probably into September and October (instead of the June and July dates in post #2).

    JUNE 17
    Transformers #20
    Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase 2 Vol. 11 Hardcover

    JUNE 24
    Transformers vs. The Terminator #2 (of 4)

    JULY 8
    Transformers: Galaxies #7

    JULY 15
    Transformers ’84: Secrets and Lies #1 (of 4)

    JULY 22
    My Little Pony / Transformers #1 (of 4)
    Transformers
    #21

    AUGUST 12
    My Little Pony / Transformers #2 (of 4)
    Transformers #22
    Transformers: Galaxies #8

    AUGUST 19
    Transformers ’84: Secrets and Lies #2 (of 4)
    Transformers vs. The Terminator #3 (of 4)

    AUGUST 26
    Transformers: Galaxies #9
    Transformers Vol. 2: Change in Their Nature Hardcover


    Not listed, issues that we already know of, from Previews listings...
    Ongoing #23
    Galaxies #10
    My Little Pony #3
    My Little Pony #4
    Terminator #4
    Transformers 84 #3
    Transformers 84 #4

    For some reason, they call the Vol 2 TPB as "their nature", while the listing and image on Amazon is "your nature"... so I'm not sure which is correct.

    The Preveiws listings in Post #2 have been updated with IDW's new dates in the post above this one... and added some extra issues as well. This is the updated release listing, which I have added to the June, July and August Comics topics.
    I will do up a September comics topic for the ones now in that month, as it is really unlikely that Previews/Diamond will put out a solicitations book for that month to promote more comics on top of the delayed comics that collectors and comic stores are struggling to keep up with.
    The October topic will be left until later, to see if there is a solicitations by Diamond/Previews released for that month (around July/August).
