Star Trek vs. Transformers coming in September
IDW’s latest mashup has The Transformers ‘80s cartoon series meeting up with Star Trek: The Animated Series from the 70s, in what they are describing as “no-holds-barred Saturday Morning mash-up for the ages!”
The new series is being co-written by veteran Star Trek comics writer Mike Johnson and veteran Transformers comics writer John Barber (Optimus Prime, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Transformers: Bumblebee Movie Prequel). Art for the four-issue series is being done by Philip Murphy, including A & B covers, which connect to form “an amazing heroes and villains image.” Issue #1 (32 pages long and priced at $3.99) will also feature variant covers from Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce, Shade the Changing Girl) and Eisner Award-winning artist Derek Charm.
Here is the synopsis and available covers for issue #1
At the edge of Klingon space, the Starship Enterprise finds there’s more to the final frontier than meets the eye, when Kirk and his crew come face to face with the strangest life forms of all: Cybertronians! This unprecedented crossover brings together two of the greatest science fiction universes of all time—in the style of their classic animated series! A five-year mission meets a four-million-year war!
