Apple's iBooks has uploaded a three page preview of IDW's Robots in Disguise #18. In issue #18 someone has a bad case of survivor guilt!

After the shattering events of the past two issues, we can't tell you who's alive and who's dead. But we will hint that one CYBERTRONIAN has to reconsider her worldview—while she comes face-to-face with some old enemies. We won't mention any names, but she's in for the fight of her life!

Check out the preview attached to this post.

Previously we saw Bios of Predaking and Bumblebee through two special character trailers titled Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters “Inside The Hunt”. They were serious in tone and informative.
Today we have with us the Bios for Optimus Prime and Megatron; both clips narrated in a funny way.





Thanks to Toys "R" Us, Hong Kong for both clips.
