Way back in 2014 when the zero issue hit stands on Free Comic Book Day, Transformers vs. GI Joe kicked off with the death of Cobra Commander. And folks, it was a death --- that dude was stabbed straight through the heart by Snake Eyes and then immediately crashed the fighter jet he was flying. So naturally, it only makes sense that he'd return from the dead in the grandest possible fashion.

And that's exactly what happens in Transformers Vs. GI Joe #12. As we ramp up to the final issue of John Barber and Tom Scioli's epic crossover in #13, the Commander returns to take his rightful place as the leader of the (literally) Earth-shattering Decepticobra Alliance --- but that's not even half of the story. Check out a preview below, and get ready to be overwhelmed by the action!



So let's break this down for a second. Not only do we have the return of Cobra Commander, but we've got the reveal of the Cobra Empress's previously mummified face, the formation of Defensor (complete with Peacemaker, the good guy Transformer who is also a gun), a final assault on Cybertron, and a glimpse of the Transformer afterlife starring a demonic Kremzeek? Friends and neighbors, that is a whole lot of comic.

Here's the official solicitation:
