Transformers return to comic shelves!
IDW now enter their 14th year of being the sole producer of Transformers comics, a month or two after the cancellation of all their Transformers titles. Bizarrely, this cancellation came when it seemed things were just getting good; the award-winning More Than Meets The Eye in particular has been praised by fans and industry professionals alike. IDW seem to be taking a gamble on their new series being as popular as the old ones.
The company has kept shtum on the precise setting of the new rebooted universe, but we know it takes place on Cybertron (to help Hasbro sell all those War for Cybertron toys) and will heavily feature Bumblebee (because what doesn’t these days?).

Keep it real!
