Imagine a world where the Autobots lost the battle to the Decepticons and the world was taken over by Megatron.  That’s the premise behind IDW’s new 12-issue maxi-series The Transformers: All Hail Megatron.  writen by Shane McCarthy, with art by Guido Guidi will hit store shelves July 9, 2008 and will arrive monthly after that.

“I’m sure this book is going to please old fans and new readers as well,” Guidi says. “We 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!”


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.  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 ‘em down, drag ‘em out ‘war’ between giant robots that’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.
