STARTING OVER: Nick Roche Confirms That New IDW Transformers Universe Will Have All-New Creative Teams

Wreckers Trilogy writer/artist Nick Roche has confirmed to Twitter that whatever form the new IDW Transformers Universe takes next year, it will feature all-new creative teams. This was something that had been hinted at on multiple occasions as various IDW writers and artists made reference to their final work on Transformers - but this is the first overt confirmation that nobody will be returning for whatever new form the IDW comics take.

That's understandable, on some level - if you're just going to have the same people, why reboot at all? Under Editor In Chief John Barber - whose tenure as a Transformers writer concludes today with Optimus Prime issue #25 - we should've expected this to be more than a simple renumbering or "soft" reboot. We also have a lot of faith in his ability to hire talented people from his time as Transformers editor, so it's our hope that good and interesting times are ahead for the Transformers.

If you want to see off the old IDW Transformers creators - and they've all done a lot for Transformers and should absolutely be celebrated - Optimus Prime #25 should be in US comic stores and reader apps like Comixology today.
