Imagine a world where the Autobots lost the battle to the Decepticons and the world was taken over by Megatron.Â That’s the premise behind IDW’s new 12-issue maxi-series The Transformers: All Hail Megatron.Â writen by Shane McCarthy, with art by Guido Guidi will hit store shelves July 9, 2008 and will arrive monthly after that.
â€œI’m sure this book is going to please old fans and new readers as well,â€ Guidi says. â€œWe have an intriguing and dramatic story, plus tons of Transformers action featuring classic characters pushed to the edge of new, extreme, and never explored situations!â€
If the cover image by Klaus Scherwinkski and Trevor Hutchison is any indication of what we’ll see inside, this could be a really great series.Â According to McCarthy, fans of the Transformers won’t want to mis out because, “you’ll be missing out on a something only comics can really translate; a good, knock â€˜em down, drag â€˜em out â€˜warâ€™ between giant robots thatâ€™ll tear cities apart, bring down countries and make you look forward to walking into your local comic-book store.”
The premise is a really good one, and I’m sure before the series is over, we’ll see an Autobot or two make an appearance.
