A fine month indeed. We have the last issue of High Ways (for now, I hope), a HC collection of all JB's Trek comics (yay!) and, most suprising, a new cover for the Mars Attacks IDW TPB. I assume the book will include the Mars Attacks Rog-2000 cover, which is pretty much impossible to find without paying a small fortune, so it'll have two very rare JB pieces!

By the way, is it the first time you have drawn Optimus Prime, JB? I wouldn't mind seeing you drawing an entire Transformers story myself...

You forgot about the cover for:

The Colonized #1 Subscription Variant

Great JB month from IDW!

Didn't notice that one. Thanks!

(At least it's one cover we can actually order this time...)

Makes me wish JB would do an actual Mars Attacks comic, not just the covers.

I agree. It would be nice to see JB do a full MARS ATTACKS! book.

I bought all of the individual issues of STAR TREK stuff by JB. (The alternate
McCOY covers were so neat, I got those, too!) Then I got the TPBs. Now
there's a going to be a hardcover collection?!? Aaaargh!!!!!

Chris Ryall and I talked about doing a story to go behind my ROG-2000 cover, but IDW needed it too soon.

Some day, perhaps!

Snap Wallace, I'll certainly be triple dipping on the Star Trek book. :)

I like the Mars Attacks cover even though I have no idea how KISS, Transformers and Popeye can go together!

I should have picked up the Popeye issue when I was last at the comic book
store. It looked pretty good when I flipped through it.

If it's anything like the two Infestation "crossovers" the characters don't crossover at all - just the concept. So even though I've never read any of the other Infestation books, I have the two issues they did as part of the Transformers continuity in one of my IDW Transformers hardcovers. 

It's a clever way of doing an "event" without actually doing a crossover, because those two issues made sense for what they were without any other comics necessary.

I agree, Brad.

Though come to think of it, seeing Popeye alongside Optimus Prime or
characters from some other brand might be fun. Just the thought reminds
me of the wonderful Archie/Punisher mashup makes me yearn for that
elusive Conan/Groo clash!

It was excellent. I have no interest in Mars Attacks beyond that issue, but it felt like a Popeye story where martians happen to show up.

"Pedro,Transformers....."

Thanks, William. I have the HC with that cover, but that's Megatron (and Generation 2 Megatron, to boot), not Optimus.

"Snap Wallace, I'll certainly be triple dipping on the Star Trek book."

For the Romulans books I'll be QUADRUPLE dipping!

Bought the original issues. The TPB for the extra story. The Treasury Edition because it was huge and beautiful. And now the hardcover...
