Just in from WonderCon by way of CBR we have word there will be a new Transformers comic series coming out way. Those of us wondering about the Rom character suspected it would collide with our beloved robots and here it is!
The series will be written John Barber with help from Christos Gage and colors and art by Alex Milne. The story is said to also feature new character named Stardrive who is reported to be of Cybertronian origin as well as being a Solstar Knight.
From a timeline perspective, where does this fit in in the continuity?
Gage: Fairly early in the existence of the Solstar Knights. Not quite 200 years ago, but around 175, 180 years in the past. Rom and his ilk have only recently won their big victory over the Dire Wraiths, and are not really known outside Solstar space… but that’s about to change.
Barber: From the Transformers’ perspective, Cybertron is an uninhabitable husk at this point, and the Autobots and Decepticons are at war even as they search the galaxy for energon. Their war has been going on for about four million years, so they’re on the other side, compared to where the Solstar Order is.
The series revolves around a Cybertronian Solstar Knight, what can you tell us about Stardrive?
Gage: She’s a great combo character… a Cybertronian infant rescued by Rom from a crashed spaceship. She grew up in the Solstar Order, so she’s never been around her own kind, until the events of our story. She’s very much a fish out of water, not really fitting in anywhere. She has a strong code of honor and a good heart, but they’ll be put to the test.
Judging from the preview artwork, we will be seeing some other favorites including Bumblebee, Ultra Magnus and a bevy of beast type beings. Read the full interview at the source link below.
