Grimlock and Dinobots appear in Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters
Friday, 1 March 2013
To coincide with the Transformers Prime television series, IDW Publishing is releasing Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters with the help of writers Mairghread Scott and Mike Johnson, and artist Agustin Padilla.
For the thousands of years since the fall of Cybertron, the Dinobots haven’t been twiddling their claws! Grimlock, Slug, Sludge, Snarl and Swoop have been martialing their forces and fighting the good fight against a slew of mysterious new villains.
“There was a special kind of magic in that last Transformers Prime series,” said series Editor Carlos Guzman. “The fans really responded to the thrill-a-minute storytelling, and I can’t be more excited to work with Mairghread, Mike and Agustin! And with our writers heavily involved in the Transformers Prime television series, we’re in a unique place to tell stories that matter!”
That story chronicles the Dinobots forming an underground resistance miles beneath Cybertron while waiting for the Autobots' leader Optimus Prime to save them from their shadowy assailants. Featuring covers by Ken Christiansen and Michael Lark, Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters #1 arrives in stores on May 22nd, 2013.
