Just when you think you've seen it all, a new crossover graphic novel comic from IDW was revealed on My Little Pony fansite EquestriaDaily.com: Transformers / My Little Pony "Friendship in Disguise!" While this appears to be an oddball concept, it could turn out to be a good read just like the 90s crossover "The Punisher Meets Archie".

Hot on the heels about news regarding a My Little Pony / Transformers crossover graphic novel called "Friendship in Disguise", we find out from our friends at IDW Publishing, that the graphic novel will be released earlier this year as individual issues available weekly in May 2020. Here's the press release from IDW ...

IDW Publishing wrote:A May 2020 Four-Week Crossover Event!

SAN DIEGO, CA (February 6, 2020) – When the Mane Six gallop alongside Autobots in battle, the forces of villainy stand no chance! IDW Publishing (OTCQX: IDWM), under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), welcomes comic fans of all ages to enjoy the wildest crossover of Hasbro creations ever: MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS, a four-issue miniseries shipping weekly in May!

In MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS, 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!

MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS assembles an all-star team of comic creators for this mind-blowing series: writers James Asmus, Ian Flynn, and Sam Maggs, and artists Casey W. Coller, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Priscilla Tramontano, and Tony Fleecs (who also provides cover artwork for the entirety of the series).

"The writing I've gotten to do individually for MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS have already proven to be some of the most fun I've had in my career, so it's pure joy to play them off each other," says Asmus. "We're making a wild mash-up unlike anything else in your comic collection. You basically owe it to yourself and your future happiness to get a copy!"

"It's been a delightful challenge finding common threads between the ponies and bots. It's certainly a fun and unique opportunity," says Flynn. "I hope fans of both franchises can come together and enjoy this."

"MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS are two of my all-time favorite universes. Having written for them both previously, the idea of bringing the citizens of Equestria and Cybertron together is incredibly exciting," says Maggs.


"Teaming TRANSFORMERS and MY LITTLE PONY has been a dream we've had for a long time," says IDW Editor-In-Chief John Barber. "We're all really excited to see this mashup of characters by a mashup of creators who are honoring the legacy of both universes… and doing it in the most bonkers, fun way imaginable!"

For information on how to acquire copies of MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS, please contact Seibertron.com about how to pre-order this product, or contact your local comic shop, or visit http://www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.

If anyone's worried about this: keep in mind we survived Michael Bay on 5 separate occasions.

And, of course, Facebook has erupted with comments of sweeping disapproval of this crossover, declaring it to be the worst thing ever. :SMUG:

They are REALLY doing this?! Hey HASBRO, bring back the old KENNER line of M.A.S.K. and CENTURIONS. THAT would be spectacular news. A new toyline and new animated series to go with them. I never understood the hype or alleged appeal of talking pastel-colored ponies. That stated, I miss The Care Bears. :-( :HASBRO: :???:

A quick mashup I made years ago for a similar topic on another forum.

Warning: spoiler alert.

Tell them to go read Transformers/New Avengers.

I don't know why they're so upset though, it's not like they're being forced to read it. It's not like it's going to become the status quo.

It's just a crossover.

Transformers has done it multiple times with many franchises (with mostly little success, but that's just my opinion) and nothing has changed. The world continued. Transformer toys continued to be produced. blah blah blah.

Don't like it? Don't read it. Unbunch your panties and go find some bigger travesty to get upset over.

Yes, and we'll need all of that willpower to survive this idiocy.

I doubt it will be worse then TF/ New Avengers or TF/ Visionaries. In fact I dare say this might be light hearted fun, what's the harm in that? As Burn said, don't like it? Don't buy it, move along.

This might have been a fun and interesting little crossover if it came out six or seven years ago when Friendship is Magic was still in its prime (excuse the pun), but a it is, it feels a bit late to the party.

All I know is there better be something between DJ-PON-3 and Soundwave and/or Blaster!

My daughters and I are excited for this. Should be fun!

Yeah a crossover with Prime would make more sense, but this is fine.

Anyone think they'll actually hit a weekly publication schedule?

yeah they are doing it but I doubt they'll include/introduce a strong male character within MLP cast.

well MASK was brought back but it was lack luster not very well executed.

Centurions isn't for Hasbro to do any with i'm afraid to say that belongs to the jack kirby estate.

If this doesn’t include Starscream being beaten up by Rainbow Dash I will be disappointed.

Also, does anyone else recognize the art style, because it looks like the person who made the Hascon promo comic is also doing this.

Please, please, please let Cog or Sixgun, or even the powerdashers be included. I want to see some weaponized ponies.
