The final issue of TALES OF THE FALLEN has been approved to print and will show up on shelves sometime in January. Shown here is Alex Milne's (who is also doing the interior art!) awesome cover. So what is so special about this issue you may ask? For me, a few things.
First off, this is my final TF issue for the time being. Second, this book wraps up the REIGN OF STARSCREAM storyline by showing us what happened to ARCEE and THUNDERCRACKER after that last issue. Finally, it's allowed me to introduce a new character to the already vast TF universe.
This character was originally set to appear in the REIGN OF STARSCREAM book, but was left out when the ending was changed. For those of you that have the trade, the ending that featured this character was the one that featured a mutated DEVASTATOR basically tearing up the city. When STARSCREAM finally "saves" the day, this new character helps to refine and create the combiner technology for future use. Basically, a semi-nod to the "Starscream's Brigade" episode of the original cartoon series.
So who is this character? Well, it's going to be a bit longer before he's revealed, but in the meantime, I'll give you his name: FLATLINE.
