Star Trek vs. Transformers mini-series coming from IDW

Post by MajorHoy on Wed Jun 20, 2018 12:53 am

Well, I have no plans to buy this, but if anybody else might be interested,
A New IDW Comic Is Mashing Up Star Trek and Transformers in the Most Glorious Way Possible
IDW’s Star Trek comics have already played host to some zany pop-culture crossovers, from Doctor Who to the Green Lantern Corps, to, err, Planet of the Apes. But the latest crossover is seeing the original Trek crew meet the Transformers in a very fun way.
io9 can exclusively reveal that this September will see the launch of Star Trek vs. Transformers, a new crossover miniseries from the creative team of writers John Barber and Mike Johnson, alongside artist Philip Murphy and colorist Leonardo Ito. The series—which will run for four issues—is inspired by the aesthetic and continuities from the cartoon iterations of both Trek and Transformers: the 1973 cult classic Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the original 1984 Transformers show.
So yes, Trek fans, that means Lieutenant M’Ress is coming face to face with some giant transforming robots.
The series will begin in the Star Trek universe, when the U.S.S. Enterprise answers a distress call on the edge of Klingon Space, only to find a dilithium mine under attack from 20th century-era jets and helicopters. When a certain red truck shows up to lend a hand, however, Kirk and the crew discover that there’s more than meets the eye to their new vehicular friends and foes.

No real interest in Transformers, but it is nice to see the animated series style Enterprise crew again...

No real interest for me, either in Transformers (nor in the later Power Rangers). Things like Micronauts and Shogun Warriors are more towards the upper limits of nostalgia for me, and with those two it's because of the comic books, not the toys themselves.

Likewise. I think Bill Mantlo's Micronauts book was about the best SF title Marvel ever produced. A very underrated writer, and the Mike Golden art on the early issues was fantastic. Did you read Rom?

Bought/read it, but it wasn't quite as good as Micronauts and Shogun Warriors for me. (Don't know if art may have hampered it, since it's hard to match Michael Golden on Micronauts!)

I agree. Though I didn't really think much of the art on the last few issues of Shogun Warriors, either...

Oh, but there's just no comparison between Rom and GIANT Samurai-like robots! cheers

Red Ronin in Godzilla was cool, too!



We need a kung-fu / ninja / samurai / martial arts smiley!

I don't really know.
It looks like there might have been a "new-and-improved" version introduced back in a Wolverine annual in 1996?

Somehow, I must have missed that issue...

Rather alarmingly though, having looked him up, Red Ronin has evidently appeared in several books since Avengers #199 which I have definitely read but have no memory of, including Solo Avengers and New Thunderbots. I think I'm losing my mind...

Define "missed".

But was that the original Red Ronin, or were those "new and 'improved'!" versions, or even just other characters that just re-used the name? Question

There were no new and improved versions. These were all the original Red Ronin, apparently, including the one in the Wolverine Annual. I guess any cosmetic differences are down to artistic licence.
