Another Relaunch For An Old Favorite: Preview Transformers #1

by Olly MacNamee

This week sees yet another re-launch of the ever-popular Transformers comic from IDW, with a new number one! Written by Brian Ruckley with art by Angel Hernandez and Cachét Whitman, colours by Joana Lafuente, and letting by Tom B Long, Transformers #1 promises readers a ‘bold new origin’ centred around the first murder ever to have happened on Cybertron. Read more below and take a peak at the preview pages from this Wednesday’s debut release.

A NEW ERA DAWNS! In the infinite universe, there exists a planet like no other: Cybertron! Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity. Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below.

Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric. Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows. It is a truly amazing realm, long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars. This is the Cybertron that Optimus Prime and Megatron vie for in this bold new origin—a world of seemingly endless peace! All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders—they are confronted by the hard reality of the first murder to have occurred on Cybertron in living memory!
