Tom Scioli To Co-Write And Draw ‘Transformers/G.I. Joe’ At IDW [NYCC 2013]
At this point, Transformers and G.I. Joe have crossed over so many times that it takes something pretty special to get our attention, and today, IDW did exactly that with the announcement that the latest Transformers/G.I. Joe series will be drawn and co-written by the amazing Tom Scioli.
Seriously, whoever used one of their magic lamp wishes to make this happen, everyone here at ComicsAlliance sincerely thanks you. Check out the full cover, in which Scioli draws Destro and a few other, less important characters, below.
Recently, Scioli (an occasional guest contributor to ComicsAlliance) has been focusing on creator-owned webcomics like American Barbarian, Final Frontier and the Super Mario-inspired Mystery Object, but in this series, he and co-writer John Barber are taking everyone’s favorite toy franchises into a story that IDW describes as being “cosmic in scale.” From the looks of things, it’s the Joe team against the entire planet of Cybertron, and I could not be more excited about it.
More on Transformers/G.I. Joe, including a release date, as information becomes available.
