SCCC ’14: Transformers and Windblade to Cross Over for ‘Combiner Wars’ Next Year

You may not have necessarily expected this, because people always have a wariness to media adaptations entering comics – but IDW have an incredibly strong set of comics in their Transformers line. Made up of a few ongoing series backed with the odd miniseries and one-shot, the series has been especially good over the last few years or so.

So it’s with that note that I’m going to tell you about SDCC’s news that the main series will be crossing over next year for a big event storyline called ‘Combiner Wars’. This is tying in to a new set of action figures that Hasbro are putting out, where you can dissemble two figures and build them into one big ‘un.

In March, those big figs are going to show up in the comics universe, with issues 39-41 of Transformers and 1-3 of a new Windblade miniseries hosting the storyline. That means Mairghread Scott and Sarah Stone are handling half of the story as they continue on the success of their current Windblade miniseries into a second story. John Barber and Livio Ramondelli – who did the above image – will handle the Transformers issues.

A five-part story with a prologue setting things up, the press release quoth:

It’s an arms-race of truly titanic proportions as a long-lost ancient artifact allows the Cybertronians to unite into more powerful, gigantic forms. Will Cybertron—or the galaxy—be able to withstand the onslaught?
