Also coming to us from Seibertronian Sunstar (via the Twitter account of IDW assistant editor David Mariotte), we got a sneak peak into IDW's upcoming miniseries Transformers vs Visionaries! It was kind of snuck into the larger panel from the 'Till All Are One annual we reported on here, in the same tweet, but we get a couple of panels featuring Kup, Ironhide, and two of the Visionaries themselves! This series will be written by Magdalene Visaggio and art will be provided by Fico Ossio, who drew the Revolutionaries series and also, the first issue of Miconauts. The first issue of Transformers vs. Visionaries should be coming out next month!

You mean 'Kup'. I just had a kip and now I feel rested. :D

Looks like Kup and Ironhide are in the New Prysmos we saw Krieger (or whoever) create within Cybertron

Why do I have a suspicious idea the plot of Transformers vs Visionaries is just Visionaries blame the transformers for the death of their world or people, so they attack. But maybe twist of all twist it was somebody else. Or maybe I'm just crazy.

So IDW recently shared a page from Transformers Vs Visionaries on Instagram. https://twitter.com/...628452974891009

I like that theres a hint towards a backstory with the Visionaries that may imply some form of the events from the show. This also gives us a hint as to why Darkstorm isnt in the character roster.

Through a number of social media accounts, including artist Fico Ossio, editor David Mariotte, and their own Instagram and Twitter feeds, IDW Publishing has been doing a steady stream of teasers for the upcoming crossover series introducing the latest franchise to join the Hasbro: The Visionaries!

Much like the small panel and frame teasers we saw back in this story, the images we have this time are either single panel, covers, or partial pages, showing off both factions in the alleged versusness - if this is anything like Rom vs Transformers, expect the antagonism to shift in the series. Characters of note so far? Ironhide, Wheeljack and Breakdown on one side, Witterquick, Cravex, Leoric and Virulina on the other. Check them out below, and let us know what you make of this new series so far, if you'll be picking up the issues, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

'character design at it's finest' that says? Oh dear.

I mean it looks like a good read and I’ll totally be reading this as it comes out, but the artist doesn’t seem to have a good grasp on Cybertronian character design. The human characters look great though

Initially glimpsed at in our previous post - which can view again here - on the next crossover miniseries from IDW Publishing and the Hasbro Universe, we have some full art for the retailer incentive covers of the first issue of Transformers vs Visionaries, by Transformers veteran artist Brendan Cahill and colourist Lauren Bennett!

The art, shown below in both lines and colour, sports the Fico Ossio redesign of Leoric plus the grumpy old truck Kup - sans his Action Man partner, sadly - with both almost wearing matching helmet-like headpieces, and some serious chin action from the Cybertronian. Check it out below, and stay with us as we spotlight more work from Cahill and Bennett throughout the series starting this month, alongside writer Magdalene Visaggio and artist Fico Ossio.

Placing some actual marketing and promotion behind one of their future ventures, IDW Publishing's own Tumblr blog has uploaded some unlettered pages from the soon to begin Transformers vs The Visionaries crossover mini-series, written by Magdalene Visaggio and with art by Fico Ossio - in fact, the opening pages of issue #1!

The series, which will follow on directly from the events in First Strike, sees a reimagining of a number of characters, including Leoric and Virulina, which we see in the pages below... about to face, or encounter, Kup and Ironhide! Check out the images below, let us know what you think, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub.

Ironhide needs a hide upgrade.

I never got into Visionaries and I don't want to now, so I'll pass. The Transformers would crush these fleshies, just like they would crush almost anyone. :michaelbay:

Poor Ironhide and Kup's face just looks creepy to me.

I agree that many of the humans are a bit "Mary Sue" in these comics. Most TFs would win, easily

Also, I still don't like the new Leoric, for the save reasons I didn't like the new Matt Tracker. I'm all up for character development, new characters or characters changing jobs/positions of authority, but extensive changes with no reasons why, just for the sake of it seem to be insensitive to the source material and fans of the original show, aesthetic, etc.

Wake me up when Leoric looks like this: - http://visionaries.wikia.com/wiki/Leoric

I'm with Primalxconvoy.
As with MASK this comes from Hasbro direct and IDW are happy to play the fall guy.

I think like with Marvel Transformers and GIJoe RAH they should try and continue the classic continuity in a limited series.

But ultimately I'm passing on IDW continuity until further notice.

As ever I'm happy for those that do still enjoy it.

Can someone explain to me what the premise of this series is? I get that the visionaries come from a world where science and technology isn't really a thing, so they need magic animal powers. Why are the transformers involved? Why isn't Kup hanging out with action man?

Was any of this explained in first strike? I didn't bother finishing it and I don't care about spoilers.
