‘My Little Pony’ & ‘Transformers’ Combine To Form A Crossover

It’s like Zechs-mas in May! Two of Comics Pit Ace cartoon and toy reporter Zechs’ favorite properties will collide in a new 4-issue mini-series in May titled My Little Pony/Transformers. James Asmus, Ian Flynn, and Sam Maggs will write the mini-series, with artists Casey W. Coller, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Priscilla Tramontano, and Tony Fleecs (who will do covers for each issue). IDW describes the story:

… the scheming Queen Chrysalis casts a spell in search of changeling allies, but accidentally interferes with a distant Cybertronian Spacebridge… and brings the Autobots and Decepticons to Equestria! As the dust settles, it’s up to Twilight Sparkle, Optimus Prime, and others to overcome the menace of malevolent magic and machinery!

It looks like the mini-series is being collected into a “graphic novel” titled Transformers/My Little Pony: Friendship in Disguise in November. The description for that tosses in a few more names:

Ponies, Autobots, and Decepticons mix it up in this graphic novel mashup!

When Queen Chrysalis casts a spell looking for more changelings, she accidentally interferes with a malfunctioning Spacebridge! What’s this mean for our favorite fillies? There are suddenly a bunch of Autobots and Decepticons in Equestria! And as the dust settles, Rarity and Arcee find themselves teaming up against a hostile Decepticon force.

Plus Spike and Grimlock; Pinkie Pie, Gauge, and Shockwave; Fluttershy, Discord, and Soundwave; Rainbow Dash and Windblade; and Optimus Prime and Twilight Sparkle all team up for more adventures.
