Hot on the heels of the Transformers movie, Marvel and IDW Publishing’s second issue of New Avengers/Transformers is set to arrive August 8. Marvel has sent us a sneak peek of of the the issue that finds Doc Doom and Megatron teaming up.

“In the debut issue, we built slowly to the big first meeting of these two famous groups, and here’s where the readers’ patience pays off,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “The Avengers–who have been pushed to a violent place due to the Decepticons chicanery–and the Autobots—who have rolled in to squash the rising tempers—run head-on into each other…as blood—and oil—will flow!”

Rated T+

Writer Stuart Moore and artist Tyler Kirkham assemble to bring you this clash of heroes…while Doctor Doom and Megatron lay in wait! But what is the connection between these diabolical villains? Why was Spider-Man taken hostage? Answers come fast and furious, but when the dust settles, there may not be anyone left standing to prevent Armageddon!

    That cover makes Wolverine look like he’s in desperate need of a diet.

    Quesada will sign anything off if you interrupt his lunch. Seriously, he’ll do anything to restore the private time with his precious.

    “Why was Spider-Man taken hostage?”

    Maybe Megatron still bears a grudge, despite several Marvel universe wide revamps, about being wrapped in webbing waaaaayyyyy back in the early issues of the Transformers Comic when Spider-Man helped rescue Sparkplug. :p

    Spider-Man: “Oh, hey. It’s you Auto-guys again. Did you manage to rebuild Gears?”
