SDCC IDW Press Release - Transformers Combiner Wars & Angry Birds Information

Posted on 07-28-2014 at 09:10 PM by Mechafire under Comics
27e5bd1c-1363-4e4c-a1c0-76553dafef6a_zps4b1dc692 IDW has sent out an SDCC press release detailing a few of their future Transformers books, including more information and clarification on both the upcoming Combiner Wars and Angry Birds series. Specifically, it seems that the Combiner Wars toy tie-in will be an event that spans across both the Robots in Disguise (#39-41) and Windblade Returns (#1-3) series, in a fashion similar to that of the previous toy tie-in event, Dark Cybertron:

Transformers: Combiner Wars
A new Transformers event, Transformers: Combiner Wars will start March 2015 from writers Mairghread Scott and John Barber and artists Sarah Stone and Livio Ramondelli. It’s an arms-race of truly titanic proportions as a long-lost ancient artifact allows the Cybertronians to unite into more powerful, gigantic forms. Will Cybertron—or the galaxy—be able to withstand the onslaught? Find out with a prologue and 5 issues, running in TRANSFORMERS #39-41 and the new TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE #1-3, which will be packed in with select TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS toys.

Angry Birds / Transformers
Announced earlier this year, Rovio and Hasbro have teamed up two beloved properties in Angry Birds and The TRANSFORMERS! This fall IDW will bring the mayhem to comics with the brand new series, Angry Birds Transformers, expanding on the unexpected backgrounds of this explosive crossover! Written by The Transformers mastermind, John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferriera, this crossover will be one for the record books!

IDW Transformers Angry Birds Miniseries

Posted on 07-26-2014 at 12:02 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
angry-birds-transformers-103672 IDW is bringing Hasbro and Rovio's Angry Birds Transformers to comics, Comicbook.com reports! In this light-hearted series which we're told is being played for laughs, the Allspark landed on Piggy Island, leading to the Transformers' personalities merging with the Angry Bird and Bad Piggy inhabitants!

Billed as a four issue series, IDW's Transformers editor John Barber will be handling the writing. Livio Ramondelli will be providing art for a framing sequence in issue #1, with Marcelo Ferriera handling the main art for the series. IDW mainstays Sarah Stone, Guido Guidi, Casey Coller, and Livio Ramondelli will be providing covers for the series.

Comicbook.com has the cover artwork for issue #1 of the series, which reveals a couple of new characters - a Bag Piggy version of Age of Extinction Galvatron, and Arcee who is the pink Angry Bird! Are they comic only, or a tease of what we might see in the game and its associated toyline?
