Newsarama has posted a preview of the upcoming Transformers Historia one-shot, written by the extremely knowledgable Chris McFeely. With this preview, we finally know what format this retrospective on IDW’s thirteen years of Transformers comics will take. The one-shot will take a prose format, and will go through events chronologically, from the earliest origins of Cybertronian society with the Guiding Hand and Knights of Cybertron, through the age of the Primes and the first Cybertronian War, and beyond. First impressions of this one shot shows it to be a far superior summary of the continuity than the previous continuity recap, 2009’s The Transformers Continuum, and it will be a nice resource for those who want a quick reflection on thirteen years of comics but do not have time to read somewhere in the region of 300 Transformers comics.
Transformers Historia hits comic stores this coming Wednesday, 9 January. Check out the preview mirrored with this post.
