Tom Scioli to Reboot Go-Bots at IDW

The 1980s hit toy and cartoon franchise about robots that transform into vehicles is coming to IDW soon! No, we're not talking about Transformers. The other one! That's right! Go-Bots!

Tom Scioli to Reboot Go-Bots at IDW

The new series will be created by Tom Scioli, IDW revealed at their presentation at the Diamond Retailer Lunch. Though it might seem odd for IDW to have two competing transforming robot franchises, things have changed since you were a kid. Hasbro actually purchased the rights to the Go-Bots' fiction Universe back in 1981. So there's no need to worry, Transformers fans. This probably isn't taking the place of your favorite franchise after the big Unicron event is over. Probably.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
