IDW has announced that the biggest Transformers publishing event of the year, Transformers: Combiner Wars, is set to get underway next month in the pages of the main Transformers title, along with the new series Transformers: Windblade.
“We’re blowing the Transformers universe wide open with this series: showcasing new characters and new worlds in a battle with some of the biggest ‘bots you’ve ever seen,” states Windblade writer Mairghread Scott. “Anyone who thinks they know what to expect from a Transformers event will have to think again.”
“From day one of this series we’ve been seeding the mystery and power of Combiners—multiple Cybertronians who form together into bigger, more powerful wholes,” adds Transformers scribe John Barber. “Starscream realizes he needs one of his own to protect Cybertron… but why stop at one Combiner—or one world?”
The shaky peace between the Autobots and Decepticons is threatened when Cybertron’s leader, Starscream, stands against Optimus Prime and raises an unstoppable army of Combiners, threatening Windblade’s long-lost homeworld. The arms-race of Combiners will bring fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS characters to the pages of IDW comics for the first time ever—and introduce a new Combiner guaranteed to melt the internet.
Combiner Wars gets underway in Transformers #39, out in March.
