Two New Series, One TRANSFORMERS Comics Universe
Thursday, Oct 20th, 2011
Debuting in January, the war for CYBERTRON is over. Now the hard part begins.

Perfect jumping-on point for new readers.

Launching in January, IDW Publishing is proud to offer TRANSFORMERS and comics fan everywhere two new ongoing TRANSFORMERS comics series, under license from Hasbro. The two, interrelated series are a direct continuation of IDW’s CHAOS event and the culminating issue, TRANSFORMERS: THE DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME, available in comic stores and online in December. Featuring two great stories under one IDW TRANSFORMERS universe, both comic series also offer a perfect place for new readers to join the series.

Written for both comics and TRANSFORMERS fans, TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE and TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE each explore the aftermath of IDW’s CHAOS event.

The war is over, and now the hard part begins. In the new world of CYBERTRON, there are only two choices: stay or go.

Helmed by writer John Roberts with art and covers by Nick Roche, AUTOBOT RODIMUS calls on his fellow TRANSFORMERS to leave CYBERTRON in search of the Knights of CYBERTRON in TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. This lost tribe of TRANSFORMERS is, according to legend, the guardians of the original Cybertronian culture and RODIMUS and his followers begin a quest to find them and restore their culture to its past glory.

TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, written by IDW’s own John Barber, with art and covers by Andy Griffith, follows BUMBLEBEE and the remaining AUTOBOTS on CYBERTRON. Without OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE finds himself in command of a world gone mad. TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DIGUISE follows the struggle to rebuilding CYBERTRON as the AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS and civilian TRANSFORMERS, who don’t distinguish between the other two groups, are all vying for control.

Each series will feature four interconnecting covers for issue #1. Marcele Matere creates the Cybertronian mosaic for TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DIGUISE, with Alex Milne bringing the explorers to life for TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE.

So, Bumblebee can scan a new form, but can't do anything against his need to walk with a stick? These stories better be damn good if IDW wants my money in this century.

Am I the only one that was hoping for the Robots in Disguise comic to actually be about the RID cartoon?

No, you're not.

So how many comics is the average Transfan supposed to be buying each month to keep up now?

IDW has already done that, TWO volumes even. Plus, BW had the benefit of an extremely well done animated series. Time to move on to the continuities which got the shaft.

I for one would like to see a comic series for RID. The cartoon was just awful. Both Armada & Energon got the benefit of well-written comic series (well, in the case of Energon, the series wasn't completed in comic form), while the cartoons were likewise awful.

While they're at it, a comic series for Cybertron would be nice as well.

Probably for similar reasons as to why you can change your clothes with one leg. Or, it's that the scan takes in the constraints of the bot's body: big guy is big alt, small guy is small vehicle. The scanning changes the appearence, not the essence, of the bot.

1. I find it ironic that people are bummed about the Robots in Disguise comic not being about RiD, while bashing the RiD cartoon at the same time.

2. Is no one seriously jaw-dropping at the sight of Bumblebee, Ironhide, Prowl, and Wheeljack drawn in the bodies of the War for Cybertron counterparts?!

Yet another redesign for 1984 characters? I think my jaw is fine where it is for the moment.

There were about 10 kinds of ways how transformers were drawn in the Ongoing alone. Why would anybody be shocked?

While more Beast Wars comics would be great to me, RID has a bunch of great character and designs that could use a great comic (I liked RID).

I'm probably misunderstanding things, but does this mean that these two stories will be published in the same comic?

It means both IDW RiD and MTMTE will take place in the same world.

No. Transformers Ongoing will just be split up into two comics.

Yeah, thought it was too good to be true. Mo'money, mo'money, mo'money! It threw me as the vast majority of IDW's Transformers stuff already takes place in the same universe, so why bring it up?

Just typical marketing bullshine, I guess.
