The TRANSFORMERS action just keeps coming, as IDW introduces a third new series in January – TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the WRECKERS. Under license from Hasbro, Inc., IDW explores yet another action-packed storyline, following the AUTOBOTS special operations crew on a mission to space to confront a new foe.
Fan-favorite writer and artist Nick Roche helms this five-issue series, which spins out of IDW’s new ongoing TRANSFORMERS series.Â This story line gives fans a taste of what’s been happening off of Earth as the WRECKERS investigate a prison planet that fell to the evil DECEPTICONS three years ago.
â€œTRANSFORMERS fans craving that outer-space action need look no further,â€ said IDW editor Andy Schmidt. â€œWRECKERS is straight science fiction and actionâ€”robots in space with the highest of stakes! But donâ€™t look for all cheery fun and games here. Itâ€™s not called â€˜Last Standâ€™ for nothing!â€
TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the WRECKERS plots a course to a prison planet conquered by the DECEPTICONS during the war on Earth. With no communication in three years, the WRECKERS face an unknown foe, who just might tear SPRINGER, KUP, and their cadre of AUTOBOT heroes apart. Roche and All Hail Megatronâ€™s Trevor Hutchison will provide covers.
TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the WRECKERS rounds out IDWâ€™s new trifecta of TRANSFORMERS comics, which starts with the new TRANSFORMERS ongoing series on November 18th and includes TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE, coming in December.
â€œWhile TRANSFORMERS the ongoing series and TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE are both firmly rooted on Terra Firma, Last Stand of the WRECKERS gives fans a good indication of the impact the end of the AUTOBOT vs. DECEPTICON war is having on the rest of the TRANSFORMERS universe,â€ added Schmidt. â€œThere is something great for every TRANSFORMERS fan right now in the IDW line-up of TRANSFORMERS comics.â€
