From RyallTime, the blog of IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall, comes news that IDW will be launching a brand new Transformers product in 2009.

To be released in May 2009 will be IDW's first Transformers Picture book, to be titled "I am Optimus Prime". Ryall himself describes it as:
"The book itself will be something new: not quite a normal picture book and not quite a comic book, but rather some sort of hybrid of both."

Each book will be Hardcover, with a dust jacket and be around 32 pages in length.

The first Picture Book will be written by Chris Ryall with Joe and Rob Sharp on art duties. The art will be based on the look of the Transformers Robot Heroes figures, and you can glimpse a sneak peek at an example of the Sharps work by clicking here.

This looks pretty cool. I find it somehow fitting that the radio station I have on is playing Black Sabbath while I type this.
