'Transformers: Animated' rockets from TV to comics

By Rob M. Worley     December 06, 2007

From a press release

San Diego, CA (December 5, 2007)-When the new Transformers: Animated series hits the airwaves in 2008, the TV screen won't be the only place fans can check out the latest heroics of their favorite robots: IDW Publishing is adapting the stories to the printed page using state-of-the-art animation capture and scripts from the episodes themselves.

In the upcoming TV series, fans will meet entirely new versions of both the Autobots and Decepticons: Set in the future city of New Detroit, the Autobots become the celebrated heroes of the city, constantly on guard against the Decepticon threat.

"These stories are a brand-new telling of the Transformers saga," says Chris Ryall, IDW publisher and editor-in-chief. "The setting is on a future Earth, with a range of new characters, and some familiar faces as well, all updated for the 21st century and appealing to all ages."

Transformers: Animated Vol. 1 will hit shelves in January to coincide with the debut of the series, and will tell the story of the show's entire 70-minute pilot. Each subsequent volume will include two complete stand-alone episodes of the series.
