Marty McFly has just returned from the adventure of a lifetime to a new, better Hill Valley-everything’s looking up for him! That is, until Marty and his friend Doc Brown’s time machine attracts the attention of the Decepticons!

Some events in history are so incredible, that they’ve gone down in legend-epic tales of epic heroes and villains. Others remain shrouded in mystery, only surfacing as snippets of the real story. Transformers ’84: Legends & Rumors is the perfect companion book to the Secrets & Lies mini-series. Representing the classic stories that inspired the series: “The Transformers” (Transformers #1), “Man of Iron” (Transformers UK #9-12), and the Transformers ’84 #0 one-shot!

As preparations for the escape ships continue, Wheeljack and Hound work to move what remains of the A’ovan population and habitat to a safe location for evacuation. Unfortunately, the Insecticons are insatiable and a caravan full of Cybertronian and organic life is too good a meal to pass up.
