In a bit of fairly unexpected news, IDW Publishing announced today as part of its WonderCon presence that a new Transformers/Rom crossover series will be starting in July, Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor. John Barber and Christos Gage will be writing the book, while fan-favourite More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne will be returning to provide artwork! Fellow Transformers veteran Josh Perez will also be providing colours here.
Taking place around 200 years before the current IDW books, this series revolves around new character Stardrive, a Cybertronian raised by the Solstar Order, the organization to which Rom the Space Knight belongs to. When Starscream learns of Stardrive’s existence, Transformers and Space Knights alike come into conflict. You can check out the full interview with Barber and Gage about the new comic at CBR, where they talk about the story and how Milne designed Stardrive closely with Hasbro, and have a look at some previews of the awesome new Milne art (which also features an organization that may be familiar to More Than Meets The Eye readers) after the break!
