Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

That 's how Shockwave should look.

No offense to Don, but his Shockwave somehow misses that classic Shockwave feel from the Marvel run. This image by Raiz captures it perfectly.

Can't wait.

Have we seen Don's Shockwave for this continuity?

i like shockwave and all, but seriously, the character in my view was too submissive to megs. but maybe there is a backstory or something to "why" he was submissive lol

you should really, really read the early marvel G1 comics...
and the ones near the end.

That looksy worryingly like Penis Shockwave (though it's hard to tell from that angle)...

And anything other than Seasons 1-2 of the cartoon, TBH. Shockwave as "The Schemer" is pretty much the most frequent representation of the character so far.

A bit too much detailing on the image for my liking. Nice big chunky toy design though, and a sensibly proportioned head - too many people cock up Shockers' head size, and either make him a pinhead, or make him look like he has another torso stuck on his neck.

Man, I hate when they do that. :wall:

I think it looks sweet. I can't wait until I see it in color and my question would be is would these one shot stories of these characters be in relation to what is going on currently? I'm sure the reasoning to these stories is so we have a better understanding of these characters when they appear in the ongoing.

all the one-shot stories fit into continuity with everything else IDW is doing [Infiltration/Stormbringer/Escalation etc]

I suspect bias.

I like it, but it's kind of a boring pose for a cover. When I think "Shockwave", Mark Bright's cover to the original Marvel series #5 forever seared him into my mind as "bad-a$$".

the shockwave oneshot looks really cool, but i was just wondering if the nightbeat one-shot is a 100% certainty

According to Furman at the Bristol Expo, yes.
