Robots Wage War for Sci-Fi Supremacy in TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR

Fan-Favorite Properties Cross Over in Comic Book Miniseries from IDW Publishing
IDW Publishing (OTC: IDWM) has  announced the March 2020 launch of TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR, a four-issue monthly series in partnership with Dark Horse Comics that pits the deadly race of futuristic cyborgs against the sentient, converting robots from Cybertron.
TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR brings together three longtime TRANSFORMERS contributors (writers David Mariotte and John Barber, and artist Alex Milne) with writer Tom Waltz (fresh off his celebrated 100-issue Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles run) for an epic crossover that revisits the concepts of alien invasion and time-traveling resistance fighters… but twists them in unexpected ways!

“I still remember the visceral thrill and terror of my first viewing of THE TERMINATOR, and while I've seen it a hundred times since then, it still gets my pulse running,” says John Barber, co-writer and IDW Editor-in-Chief. “I've worked on TRANSFORMERS a lot over the years, and the opportunity to combine these two mechanistic universes together to see who comes out on top (while working alongside Tom, David, and my old collaborator Alex, no less) —well, it’s way too exciting a chance to pass up.”

“TRANSFORMERS was a large part of my childhood; I was captivated, wanting to see how Optimus Prime would foil the plans of Megatron,” says artist Alex Milne. “Later, I came across THE TERMINATOR and was amazed by the idea of a robot pretending to be a human, sent back in time to hunt down a specific target. Now, as an adult, I'm very pleased to lend my talents to a project which sees these sci-fi icons brought together!”

TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Gavin Fullerton (Samurai Jack: Lost Worlds, Bags), Cover B by series artist Alex Milne, and two Retailer Incentive editions by comic book sensations Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/TMNT) and Francesco Francavilla (Star Wars Adventures), respectively.

Just a month before the highly-anticipated debut of HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, Marvel released an all-new episode of X-MEN: THE SEMINAL MOMENTS featuring series writer Jonathan Hickman and other legendary Marvel creators as they shed light on what the future holds for mutants across the universe!

White. “The first time he told it to me, I was upset. I was like, ‘We can’t do that. We CAN’T do that.’ The more I thought about it, the more I went, ‘Wait hang on, what if we did...’”

As HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X is set to shake the Marvel Universe to its core, Hickman revealed what fans might expect from the series:

“There’s no alternate universe version of the X-Men that we’re doing – time travel, or any of that kind of stuff…
