I’d say “say it ain’t so!” but then IDW says it is so. In December, the leader of the autobots, Optimus Prime, is going to die. At least that’s what can be inferred from the title, Transformers: The Death of Optimus Prime.
Written by John Barber and James Roberts with more than meets the art by Nick Roche, this single issue sets the stage for “an all new era in IDW’s Transformers comics.” There’s a word for that I’ve been hearing a lot lately, but I just can’t seem to put my finger on it. Something to do with DC Comics maybe? Who can say?
After this one-shot, two new Transformers ongoing series will launch in January, which is the traditional month of Robotadan, the Cybertronian festival of gears.
