Skybound Introduces Springer in this First Look at Void Rivals #9

This first look at Void Rivals #9 introduces a new, but familiar character to the universe consisting of Void Rivals, Transformers, and G.I. Joe.


Skybound and Image Comics provided a first look at Void Rivals #9, the latest addition to the Energon Universe’s lead-off series. Unlike the last few issues that focused exclusively on the adventures of Darak and Solila as they attempted to escape the pursuit of Proximus, the first look at Void Rivals #9 reveals that the duo will be introduced to a new character (to them), but one fans of the popular series Transformers will recognize. As seen in the covers below, Springer will make its debut to the Energon Universe.

Transformers fans will remember Springer. It’s the Autobot warrior that actually has the ability to transform into more than one vehicle. The Autobot can transform into a futuristic car and a helicopter in addition to its robot form. And depending on the continuity you follow, Springer was chosen as a successor to the Matrix of Leadership, making Springer the leader of the Autobots.

Enjoy this first look at Void Rivals #9 with covers and images provided by Skybound Entertainment. And as always, check back here at The Comic Book Spot for our review of the issue.
