    Chuck Dixon (w), Guido Guidi (a&c)
    Ever wondered what form your favorite Transformers would take if they existed in
    different eras? Wonder no more, as IDW’s new Evolutions line will look at some special
    out-of-continuity tales involving the Robots in Disguise. In issue one of the five-part
    debut miniseries, “Hearts of Steel,” writer Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi transplant
    the ‘bots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John
    Henry discovers that a steam drill is really an alien robot named Bumblebee. Before he
    can process this information, the pair are attacked by Decepticons disguised as tanks,
    trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by Starscream? And if so,
    will the other Autobots arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?

    THE TRANSFORMERS: INFILTRATION #6
    Simon Furman (w), E.J. Su (a), Su, Guidi, Roche, Scherwinski(c)
    The first titanic arc—Infiltration—wraps up in spectacular, no-holds-barred style, as
    Megatron sets about—demonstrably—putting his house (on Earth) in order. But, mighty
    as he is, has even Megatron got what it takes to curtail the activities of the all-new, hyper-
    powered Starscream? Whichever way it goes, the outlook looks distinctly bleak for the
    beleaguered earthbound Autobots. Could be that it’s time for Prowl and Co. to roll out
    the big guns? FC • 32 pages • $2.99
