IDW Brings A Nefarious Twist to Comics

New TRANSFORMERS movie-inspired miniseries launching in early 2010Transformers: Nefarious art

San Diego, CA (July 23, 2009) – The new TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN movie has already hit theaters but the saga continues with IDW’s new miniseries,TRANSFORMERS: Nefarious. Scripted by Simon Furman with art by Carlos Magno, this six-issue series follows a shadowy organization with devious designs on the TRANSFORMERS.

“The latest TRANSFORMERS movie added several very cool elements to the tapestry-SOUNDWAVE and RAVAGE being my favorites-and we’re keen to explore them,” said Andy Schmidt, IDW’s TRANSFORMERS editor. “Our story tracks a new organization with ‘nefarious’ designs on the robots in disguise. Their technology gives them a tactical advantage not yet seen in the films.”

Fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS scribe Simon Furman crafts an action-packed tale that pits the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS against an unseen enemy, while Carlos Magno draws suspense into every panel. Brian Rood will also contribute variant covers for the miniseries.

TRANSFORMERS: Nefarious will be available in stores in early 2010.
