It's fair to say that a LOT of superhero stories tend to focus on the relation between the hero/protagonist and their father, or even father figure. We tend to hear more of Jor-El than Lara, of Thomas Wayne than Martha (though there have been efforts to amend that)

But a new series looks to tell the story from a different, and long overdue, perspective, that of a single mother raising her superpowered son.

In the words of the creators; "Imagine Superman, but from Martha Kent's point of view. Or imagine Spiderman, but from Aunt May's point of view. This is a superhero story, but from the parent's point of view. But unlike her son, she doesn't have any powers."


This looks interesting, to say the least )

Now, with one (I think only one) not very flattering represntative (and even less flattering than usual) a certain highly popular subset of the Transformers-verse has been rather un-represented so far in the IDW take on the genre...

The Windblade series (#6 of which has a preview up here) which is looking at the introduction of the 13 lost Titans Colonies and how they relate to Cybertron.

As for the subset of the Transformers I'm talking about, well here's a clue;

One word...

Though it's not directly linked to the cover, there's some interesting news about the direction the Grayson title is taking post the Convergence event.

For those not wanting to be spoiled, the full version of the Bombshell variant (by Emanuela Luppachino with Tomeu Morey) for #11 can be found by clicking on the preview image, but there's a full size version under the cut.

Spoilers beneath... )

And issue 2 ot IDW's visually stunning revamp of quintessential 1980's cartoon Jem has a preview for issue 2 up here, and we meet my favourite girl group (outside of The Pointer Sisters)

One of the trademarks of the Jem cartoon was the musical numbers were done in the stle of proper MTV musc videos, and when we meet the Misfits in the opening pages it seems they're sort of taking the same route

And it looks awesome.. )

I make no secret of the fact I love Dustin Nguyen's work and Jeff Lemire has a good track record, and they are working together on a series which looks very promising, and has a preview up at Comics Alliance, where Nguyen's inkwash style is being pointed in a new direction; sci-Fi.

Our hero is Tim and his pet Bandit (named, I'm going to guess, after Jonny Quest's dog.)
