Transformers 2021 Halloween Special
(W) Dan Watters (A) Bethany McGuire-Smith (CA) Nicole Goux (CA) Livio Ramondelli
Whispers of a disembodied spark howling alone in the desert are floating around Cybertron. Whispers of Starscream’s loyalty to Megatron’s cause are also floating around. Frustrated and needing some space to clear his head, Starscream visits the desert and is surprised to actually hear the rumored screams. He follows the sound and is met with a creature that makes him question what it means to be a cybernetic being. Starscream faces off with this grotesque experiment in “I Have No Mouth And I Must Starscream,” by Dan Watters (Home Sick Pilots, Lucifer, The Sandman Universe).

“Sea of Rust,” part two! Termagax has many secrets – information that could forever tip the scales in the favor of the Autobots or the Decepticons. As the Decepticons close in, she allows Optimus Prime and the two other Autobots she respects into her inner sanctum to share her knowledge. But will the Autobots be able to act on it before the Decepticons start their siege? And where does Skywarp factor into the equation?
Transformers: Beast Wars #8
(W) Erik Burnham (A) Winston Chan (CA) Andrew Griffith (CA) Martin Gee (CA) Ryan Miller
“Pod,” part two! Blackarachnia has made her way to the Maximal ship, the Axalon, and encountered her first Maximal, Cheetor. Now she’s gone missing again and it’s up to the whole crew to find the mysteriously disappearing spider… before she finds them!
Transformers King Grimlock #2
(W) Steve Orlando (A) Agustin Padilla (CA) Alex Horley (CA) Ilias Kyriazis (CA) Paul Harding
King Grimlock rampages on! As Grimlock sets off to find his place in this strange new world of men, beasts, and magic, he finds himself in the maw of a beast big enough to swallow a Dinobot! It’s a fight of incredible strength between the Cybertronian T-Rex and the monster–and someone is taking lessons from Grimlock that may spell his doom!
Transformers Shattered Glass #2
(W) Danny Lore (A) Dan Khanna (CA) Alex Milne (CA) Andrew Griffith (CA) Sara Pitre-Durocher
Shattered Glass isn’t your average Transformers tale… “Shards” is the story of the ongoing battle between the power-hungry Autobot autocrats and the freedom-fighting Decepticon laborers. Join author Danny Lore (James Bond, King in Black: Captain America, Champions) in exploring this fractured alternate universe just before it shatters. In issue #2, Megatron is the only bot who can stop the three Autobot warlords from acquiring information that could reignite the war, but can he forgive his past mistakes and take up the mantle of Deception leader again

More ponies, more bots, and more magical mayhem as two worlds collide in the return of this hit crossover event!

All of this and more in the second My Little Pony/Transformers crossover!
