So, it's been a little while since I've let you all know what books are out and coming out, so here it is everybody.  Brought to you by, here is our most recent and future releases.  First of all, Marvel's cash in on the summer blockbuster has finally hit shelves in all its collected glory as "New Avengers/Transformers", a crossover which, interestingly enough, takes place in both the Marvel and IDW continuities.  Up next is the much anticipated "Transformers: Devestation", set to hit shelves in May, which is part four of the IDW "-ion" series following after "Infiltration", "Stormbringer", and "Escalation", not to mention "Megatron: Origin" and the "Spotlights" 1 & 2.  And speaking of "Spotlights", volume 3 is set to be released  in September.  IDW then continues to rerelease old Dreamwave comics by releasing the "More than Meets the Eye" Source books volumes 1 (September) & 2 (December).  Out in July will be part 2 of "Transformers the Ark".  Finally, in the "Best of UK" series, May sees the release of "Dinobots" and October sees the release of "Space Pirates".  So, that's pretty much everything, guys.  Happy Viewing!!

I've always wondered this. Just what does the term "tradepaperback" mean? I understand what "paperback" means, but not "tradepaperback".

once again, the almighty wikipedia has the answer

I think this will come in handy.

Ok, so now I sort of have a small idea of what a tradepaperback is. But maybe I should ask a more specific, different question: What is the difference between the tradepaperback version of..., say..., the Beast Wars Sourcebooks for example, and the regular versions?

I need to stock up on these.

I think the difference between both versions is that while the regular versions are separate issues and have their own publicity and sorts, the tradepaperback is a compilation of all the sourcebooks packed in one single real size books , with an all new cover by a well-known artist and usually extra material such as a prologue by one of the writers or someone else.
