A neat one shot crossover is due out tomorrow by IDW, Mars Attacks Transformers! We've got a preview for you!

Mars Attacks Transformers
The weekly invasion continues: AUTOBOTS vs. DECEPTICONS vs. MARTIANS?!

The invaders from Mars take advantage of the colossal Cybertronian's conflict and begin their assault on Earth in full force. It's Martian vs. Machine as the audacious Autobots and the devilish Decepticons begrudgingly join forces to repel the inhuman invaders and save the planet!

Read on to preview this issue!

Alright, I'm getting this.
jackgaughan
A little part of me wanted this to fit in with the ongoing somehow, but this is works too, looking forward to this.
StayingInTheBox
This is an instant buy. Holy shit it's ridiculous.
MechaV
Oh I have got to pick this up.

The writing is fantastic and Matt Frank's art is always top notch.
Bass X0
I think I'll wait a month and buy it for half price on Comixology.
Anguirus
Pure win.
Krueger
Been looking forward to this. Getting the Popeye one, too. I think IDW's Mars Attacks series has been very enjoyable so far.
I AM UNICRON
when i fist heard of this i was like what the heck are they thinking ? but it actually looks really good
Grimm
Sweet! This looks like fun.
gothsaurus
WOW. Nothing negative to say. The art is fantastic. The expression on Ravage being picked up by Grim is CLASSIC!!! Definite buy.
Kaijumaster
pass. lol
MisterFanwank
This looks awesome, but...

Mars Attacks? Why that movie? It seems like an oddly obscure IP for a crossover.
Dinodigger97
That gave a nice long chuckle.


Totally bought.
SenatorRatbat

The movie was based on a card game, and it has a strong cult following. IDW's also already publishing an ongoing based on it, as well as several other one-shot crossovers.

This is freaking great, the artwork and story is hilarious, seriously just the expressions on the bots is the best.

Wait?!? Why is Ironhide Using his right arm to pick up his right arm? And slapping cliff with it?

Since this seems to take cue from the G1 cartoons as it's base universe...

Animation error?
Ezilla82
After seeing the preview pages of this upcoming comic..is it me or does this could be an episode of the original cartoon and its so crazy and down right bonkers that it could actually work.
roaddemon2001
I thought that's what editors were for. Must have been friday. Or monday.lol
artiepants
oy, those faces. I could hang with the art if not for the chins and stupid grins. Nice rip on Spike's boots.
MaxxieOD
Yeah, I'm definitely getting this...it looks like lots of fun!
Oberoniss
Holy piss this is beautiful and I'm getting it ASAP.

..Who's the artist?
Anguirus
^ Matt Frank. He lives in my city and I get tongue-tied every time I meet him. SO GOOD.
HnH

I look at this as basically being 'Infestation 3'
harrismonkey
WTF?!?! HA HA!

If it's a one off and not a series I might get this.
grindcore138
Haha, oh wow, I've been looking forward to this one and it looks gloriously ridiculous, can't wait to pick it up.
DrGrim
Hey! This is the most nostalgic a TF comic has made me feel in a while! All the G1 guys look like their G1 1984 counterparts, Spike running around in yellow boots, the Autobots taking the Decepticons prisoner instead of them killing each other, and the humans love Prime instead of blaming him for bring the war to their world. It's like a missing episode from the original cartoon. I want more than one issue of this.
Obsidian X
Funny stuff! Seems a whole lot more entertaining than the two earlier infestation crossovers. I will wait and pick up the series in trades though as my OCD kicks in if I don't have all of the crossovers.

Oh .. Ignore me then
I thought it was the same deal as Infestation and Infestation 2, guess I was wrong then. Sorry.
Megastar
This is a most buy for me

That's because this is intended as being very different from AHM. This is an intentionally zany crossover event, so I don't see any reason for anyone to instantly dismiss it simply because of AHM.

I know, I was poking fun at an earlier thread where a lot of people instantly dismissed the whole idea based on him being attached as a writer

I'd rather McCarthy was writing Re-Generation 1 to be honest, couldn't be any worse and he seems to have a genuine affinity for G1.

Incoming...
Kraken
Gloriously ridiculous

When the TPB for this is out it will be mine.
Feralstorm
's What you get for dissing Spike's yellow boots.
DJW107PRIME
I was going to pass on this so hard based on my experiences with IDW crossovers (Infestation 1&2, TF vs Avengers) but that was kinda great I can't wait to read it.
star_ling
I am really really digging the art in this, I love this whole G1 cartoon feel and will have to pick this up sometime this week. I thought I would want to skip this but maybe not.
shamanking282
As long as they keep McCarthy far away from the main IDW-verse, sounds like he can do some good stuff. This is pretty funny. Still probably won't buy it, but I can't blame anyone who would.
IaconStargazer
The idea seems stupid, but based on the preview, this issue is gonna continue these crossover one-shots' abundance of whacky fun. : D
hardreturn
what a fun read.

loved the mini-megatron, insecticons and cosmos!
Big IV
This, like Infestation, seems like it would be a fun read and a fun crossover to pick up in trade. Luckily, IDW are trade makers so I know with some assurance that I can wait for the seemingly inevitable trade. Looks like fun though.
Shatterpoint
How was this one preview is better than Regeneration?
