No, it’s not a comic about what you felt like doing when watching the Michael Bay movies, but a new mini-series set in the Transformers universe. IDW announced Transformers: Escape, set before the Autobots and Decepticons went into all-out war. Here’s how the publisher described the series:
As Cybertron descends into a state of war, countless civilians — unaligned with the Autobots, Decepticons, or any faction — are caught in the crossfire. Fortunately, a solution may be coming, as Wheeljack, Hound, Nautica, and some of Cybertron’s greatest (and most infamous) scientists seek to reactivate the Ark program and evacuate the planet with huge spaceships. On the verge of war, will their efforts be enough to escape?
The five-issue series will start in December and is written by Brian Ruckley, with art by Bethany McGuire-Smith. Ruckley explains what he wants to explore in the title:
“I’ve always thought it would be a pretty terrifying, bewildering experience for aliens – non-Cybertronians – to be caught between warring factions of big transforming robots. We’re exploring the question: Who are the most dangerous Cybertronians of all?”
