"We are eager to begin this new chapter in Transformers storytelling," declared Hasbro Vice President of Global Publishing Michael Kelly in a written statement. "We are excited to begin a tale that will be accessible and appealing to readers unfamiliar with Transformers lore, while still providing the depth and drama that our long-time fans expect. It’s a big responsibility, but we’ve got the right team and the right characters to do it."

"Bringing Transformers fans this story is a real privilege," explained Ruckley. "It’s an amazing opportunity for new readers to discover and explore one of the biggest universes – and one of the best casts of characters – that science fiction has to offer, and to get in right at the start of a truly epic saga."

"I devoured everything Transformers – toys, comics, the cartoon, the movie – with a Unicron-like hunger. ‘Robots in Disguise’ dominated my every waking moment," revealed Joseph. "To join IDW’s creative team for the launch of a Transformers comic is staggering, and easily one of the greatest moments of my life."

Transformers is written by Brian Ruckley and illustrated by Angel Hernandez and Ron Joseph. The new series is expected to debut this March from IDW Publishing.
