When the Mane Six gallop alongside Autobots in battle, the forces of villainy stand no chance… IDW is to publish the very first official My Little Pony/Transformers crossover comic book, four issues, weekly in May in all comic book stores.
In My Little Pony/Transformers, the scheming Queen Chrysalis casts a spell in search of changeling allies, but accidentally interferes with a distant Cybertronian Spacebridge… and brings the Autobots and Decepticons to Equestria! As the dust settles, it's up to Twilight Sparkle, Optimus Prime, and others to overcome the menace of malevolent magic and machinery!
My Little Pony/Transformers is written by James Asmus, Ian Flynn, and Sam Maggs, and drawn by Casey W. Coller, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Priscilla Tramontano, and Tony Fleecs who also draws covers for every issue.
"The writing I've gotten to do individually for My Little Pony and Transformers have already proven to be some of the most fun I've had in my career, so it's pure joy to play them off each other," says Asmus. "We're making a wild mash-up unlike anything else in your comic collection. You basically owe it to yourself and your future happiness to get a copy!"
"It's been a delightful challenge finding common threads between the ponies and bots. It's certainly a fun and unique opportunity," says Flynn. "I hope fans of both franchises can come together and enjoy this."
"My Little Pony and Transformers are two of my all-time favorite universes. Having written for them both previously, the idea of bringing the citizens of Equestria and Cybertron together is incredibly exciting," says Maggs.
"Teaming My Little Pony and Transformers has been a dream we've had for a long time," says IDW Editor-In-Chief John Barber. "We're all really excited to see this mashup of characters by a mashup of creators who are honoring the legacy of both universes… and doing it in the most bonkers, fun way imaginable!"
Previous Transformers IP crossovers have included Angry Birds, GI Joe, Ghostbusters and Star Trek. Plenty more to come I'm sure.
