IDW have announced two new Transformers comic books that will serve as both a prequel to the upcoming game, Fall Of Cybertron, and as a link to the Transformers Prime animated series.
Starting in August, IDW will publish a digital comic called Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron which will set up the events of the game. The story is being written by IDW Senior Editor John Barber, who also penned Transformers: Robots In Disguise, with art by Dheeraj Verma (Escape of the Living Dead).
Then, in November, the miniseries Transformers Prime: Rage Of The Dynobots will link the events of the game with the Prime ’toon. It will be written by Mairghread Scott, who writes the cartoon, and Mike Johnson (Star Trek), with art by Agustin Padilla (Dungeons & Dragons).
Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron will be $0.99, and available on the iPad, Kindle, and any device that supports comiXology, while Transformers Prime: Rage Of The Dinobots #1 will retail for $3.99 and will be available on paper.
