IDW Brings More Megatron

by

Press Release

Continuing its fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS saga, IDW is pleased to offer fans four more issues of Transformers: All Hail Megatron. Starting in July, IDW will publish, under license from Hasbro, Inc., four monthly issues, each featuring two short stories that detail the aftermath of the 12-issue All Hail Megatron series. These must-read books tie up important details from the main series, and pave the way for IDW’s next big TRANSFORMERS storyline.

“The All Hail Megatron series is hugely popular with fans, and for good reason, it’s striking off in a bold new direction while showing reverence to the classic TRANSFORMERS series,” said Andy Schmidt, IDW ‘s TRANSFORMERS editor. “We decided to do the extension because we didn’t want to leave fans hanging, and because we wanted to segue into our upcoming TRANSFORMERS series.”

When Transformers: All Hail Megatron #13 debuts in July, fans can join IRONHIDE and OPTIMUS PRIME as they deal with the fallout of All Hail Megatron, and watch as the Decepticons begin to probe the mysteries of the AUTOBOT Matrix. All Hail Megatron #14 offers a glimpse into the motivations of the traitorous SUNSTREAKER, while GALVATRON undergoes a major transformation, setting up important events to come.

The short stories in Transformers: All Hail Megatron #13-16 feature a dynamic team of writers and artists, including Simon Furman, Shane McCarthy, Mike Costa, Andy Schmidt, Denton Tipton, Nick Roche, Zander Cannon, Guido Guidi, Chee, Emiliano Santalucia, Andrew Griffith, Casey Coller, and fan-favorite artist Don Figueroa. Plus, each issue will boast striking variant edition covers by eye-catching cover artist of the series, Trevor Hutchison.

Transformers: All Hail Megatron #13 launches in July 2009.

Transformers: All Hail Megatron #14 launches in August 2009.
