THE TRANSFORMERS EVOLUTIONS: HEARTS OF STEEL #1

Written by Chuck Dixon, art and cover by Guido Guidi.

Ever wondered what form your favorite Transformers would take if they existed in different eras? Wonder no more, as IDW¹s new Evolutions line will look at some special out-of-continuity tales involving the Robots in Disguise. In issue one of the five-part debut mini-series, "Hearts of Steel," writer Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi transplant the 'bots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John Henry discovers that a steam drill is really an alien robot named Bumblebee. Before he can process this information, the pair are attacked by Decepticons disguised as tanks, trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by Starscream? And if so, will the other Autobots arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?

Whichever way it goes, the outlook looks distinctly bleak for the beleaguered earthbound Autobots. Could be that it¹s time for Prowl and Co. to roll out the big guns?
