This March Transformers take on The Terminators in epic comic showdown

January 11th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Sometimes a comic comes along that makes so much sense in its own alternate history sort of way, that you wonder why it took so long to happen.

This is one such book… Transformers and The Terminator.

Seriously, doesn’t that just… work!?

This March IDW Publishing’s four-issue miniseries will kick off that pits two of the world’s deadliest and best known robotic creation against each other for the first time since they both appeared in 1984.

In partnership with Dark Horse Comics, the series will be written by David Mariotte, John Barber and Tom Waltz, with art by Alex Milne.

The series is described as an “epic crossover that revisits the concepts of alien invasion and time-traveling resistance fighters…but twists them in unexpected ways.”

IDW’s editor in chief Barber, had this to say:  “I still remember the visceral thrill and terror of my first viewing of The Terminator and while I’ve seen it a hundred times since then, it still gets my pulse running. I’ve worked on Transformers a lot over the years, and the opportunity to combine these two mechanistic universes together to see who comes out on top (while working alongside Tom, David and my old collaborator Alex, no less) — well, it’s way too exciting a chance to pass up.”

We know what will be top of our pull list this March.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
