When Ananda woke up after the wreck, she found herself on a magical island with a mystical healer who helped her get back on her feet. But The Queen of the Sea is coming to retrieve her and she’s bringing her murderous mermaids. Will Ananda end up back in the hands of the woman who tried to drown her?

And back at their temporary camp, Ximena is still doing her best to keep the comatose Raven alive, but they’ve been discovered and things are about to get much more dangerous. Can the pacifist navigator do what it takes to protect her captain and girlfriend?

HEAVENLY BLUES #5 (of 6)

Ben Kahn (Script and Letters), Bruno Hidalgo (Art and Color)
October 9, 27p, $1.99, Digital

Isaiah and Erin walk the razor’s edge of deception, spinning a web of lies to play the angels against each other. But there’s one thing the thieves didn’t account for: running afoul of the law. The ghosts of the past have come to haunt a member of the gang, famed outlaw Coin Counter Turner. If he can’t shake the lawman that hunted him in life, the thieves’ plan will unravel before it can even begin.

October 9, 38p, $1.99, Digital

The heist is on! All the plans are in motion, and the die is cast. Isaiah, Erin, and their team will either pull off the biggest theft in history, or face the same failures that doomed them in life. The plan’s simple: cause chaos, steal the Holy Grail, and get out while the getting’s good. If it works, they’ll be resurrected back on Earth. If they fail, they’ll spend eternity in a prison far worse than Hell.

Hasbro Reveals More Details on the Haslab Unicron including a Shuttle Plus IDW Comic Package

Beware the inescapable clutches of the mighty Unicron! The already formidable hands of the Chaos Bringer will now have 15 points of articulation, 3 per finger, so Unicron can better grasp the inferior bots he wishes to devour. The included Galvatron and newly added Hot Rod slug figures make the perfect snacks!

With the new to-scale Hot Rod slug figure, fans can reimagine the epic 1986 movie scene where Hot Rod defeats the menacing Planet Eater! Unicron will also now come with an Autobot shuttle ship inspired by the movie!

And when fans play out the part where the Bringer of Chaos’s head flies off into space, now it can appear to float! Unicron will come with a clear premium posable headstand to display his dismembered head in all its glory. The headstand also features posts to pose the included mini figures.

The Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron figure is part of Hasbro’s crowdfunding platform, HasLab. Remember, if the project doesn’t reach 8,000 backers by October 6th, the product will not move into production. Also, orders for Unicron will no longer be accepted after October 6th. If you want to add this once-in-a-lifetime figure to your Transformers collection, you must back this project before the deadline. You can back this project at HasbroPulse.com.

**Image of Unicron’s Hand is a grey prototype. Final hand will have deco.

Hasbro and IDW Publishing aso announced yet another surprise for backers of the HASLAB Transformers: War for Cybertron Unicron project. Fans who support the Unicron crowd-funded campaign through hasbropulse.com by 11:59PM EST on October 6, 2019, will also receive a ‘FREE’ digital comic bundle.

The comic will feature an all-new UNICRON cover by fan-favorite Andrew Griffith. The digital collection will include the currently unavailable Transformers: The Animated Movie four-issue limited series by Bob Budiansky, Don Figueroa and Josh Burcham – which adapts and expands the classic film that introduced Unicron – plus the first issue of the 2019 Transformers ongoing series by Brian Ruckley, Angel Hernandez, Cachét Whitman and Joana Lafuente.

If the campaign goal is reached, backers  will receive a unique code to then access the digital comic bundle exclusively through Comixology – a free mobile app available on iOS and Android.
