IDW PUBLISHING FOR JANUARY

THE TRANSFORMERS: INFILTRATION #1

Written by Simon Furman, art by EJ Su, covers by Su, Guido Guidi, James Raiz and Andrew Wildman.

Earth: 2006, and the fate of the planet is already sealed, its destiny decided... by the marauding mechanical beings known as Decepticons. In their way stand an embattled crew of seven hardy Autobot warriors, sworn to prevent the impending Armageddon at any cost, and an unlikely trio of human misfits, pulled kicking and screaming into a hitherto hidden world of pain and hurt. The can of worms is open, the genie out of bottle... and nothing will ever be the same again. It begins again--here, now--the saga of the war-torn robots in disguise, the Transformers. Legendary Transformers writer Simon Furman and artist EJ Su pick up where they left off in "Transformers: Prelude to Infiltration" with the first official issue of Transformers: Infiltration. Covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio.
