IDW's Revolutiion crossover series, encompassing Transformers, Micronauts, M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe, ROM and Action Man, has been a wild whirlwind of colorful panels imbued with an addictive, nostalgic spirit best read read on a lazy Sunday morning with a big bowl of sugary cereal. Now another title has joined the party in its final hours and is delivering a deceitful dose of unruly Decepticons into the equation. Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution #1 is written by veteran Transformers scribes James Roberts and Nick Roche, with art by Alex Milne (Transformers: The Reign of Starscream) and enters our comic shop orbit on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
Revolution, the epic comic crossover event combining many of Hasbro's most iconic toy properties, kicked off its five-issue run back in September and has been a huge hit for the San Diego-based mini-major publisher.
Transformers: MTMTE met its end last summer with issue #57, and the upcoming Transformers: Lost Light will serve as a sort of "Season Three" for the engaging storyline chronicling the four-million-year war between the Decepticons and the Autobots.
Here's the official solicitation synopsis for Transformers: MTMTE: Revolution #1:
A DATE WTH DESTINY! After years of doing very little, Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Spinister, and Misfire think they can wriggle out of anything—but not even they can avoid a heavily-promoted multi-franchise crossover. It’s the Scavengers Versus Your Childhood in a story that exposes all other art for the sham it is. What will the universe’s worst DECEPTICONS make of the world’s greatest crossover? One last dance with the your favorite DECEPTICONS before LOST LIGHT begins next month! The entire creative team that launched MTMTE returns! Variant cover by Ken Christansen, part of a 13-part connected cover! Connects with all 13 Revolution issues and one-shots!
Dive in to this 5-page preview with the misfit metallic cockroaches of the Transformers Universe, The Scavengers, and tell us if this new Revolution one-shot title has the right stuff.
