Overall, I am loving the new designs for this show. The comic makes me even more excited! Can't wait to see more of Grimlock.

I am actually quite surprised the comic is going for a more detailed style than the show.

I am like 96% sure it's just a guest artist doing the cover. The actual comic will probably look like the show.

Oh dear, might this be in continuity with the cartoon or yet another "same basic story, different continuity" ordeal like what Marvel and Dreamwave were?

I'm guessing this might take place between episodes like the video games for Prime and Animated. They could easily be slotted in between the actual show without affecting continuity.

I personally adore Tramontano's artwork. But I've also been following her work for a while now, and seen the developments. She's great. :D

As with Transformers vs G.I. Joe before it, the new IDW Publishing offering for Free Comic Book Day (May 2nd) of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, is already planned as an ongoing after the issue #0 for the initiative. And with John Barber teaming up with Priscilla Tramontano for the first, introductory book, the reins will then pass on to Georgia Ball, currently behind My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop! Read her announcement, found here, below, and take a look at a preview for issue #0 here.


This was actually announced Easter Sunday at Wondercon but the word hasn’t gotten around: I’m writing this series after issue #0. My childhood parked in front of Transformers G1 is now justified. I can bring Starscream back from the dead right?

Every time a new writer is announced for comics it fills me with joy and that it's not Simon Furman. Not because I don't like Simon quite the opposite, I love Furman but it lets me know he is no longer the cruch for Transformers comics. He doesn't have to be the default writer anymore.

Looks much better than the show does. It's kinda nice that they don't seem to lie about this one and claim it has any bearing on the show continuity.

We have some more information about the direction that the upcoming IDW Publishing Transformers: Robots in Disguise comics series will be taking with John Barber and Georgia Ball on writing duties, and Priscilla Tramontano on art, courtesy of ComicBookResources. Check out the two covers for issue #1, too, below, read the whole piece here and some snippets as follows!

The latest "Transformers" animated series debuted last month on Cartoon Network, "Transformers: Robots in Disguise." Longtime Transformers license-holder IDW Publishing isn't waiting long to capitalize on the show, with a "Robots in Disguise" #0 issue available on Free Comic Book Day (May 2), and a ongoing series set to debut in July. CBR has the exclusive first details on the ongoing, which will be written by Transformers newcomer Georgia Ball and illustrated by Priscilla Tramontano.

IDW makes the distinction that while the comic series is based on the "Robots in Disguise" TV show, it's not an adaptation of the same stories. "The stories tie into the continuity the show shares with 'Transformers Prime' and what happens in the cartoon will have consequences in the comic," Ball said in a statement to CBR. "But the comic will also feature new villains and explore different themes. There will be squabbles and there will be punching, but the first arc weaves in an element of mystery and betrayal. Bumblebee has to put the pieces together and he may not get them in the right order. I like resolving subplots in one or two issues within the context of a longer ongoing story, I’m not a fan of ending an issue without getting somewhere."

I cannot see this becoming confusing with IDW's OTHER Robots in Disguise series.
