All Hail Megatron Press Release From IDW

{mosimage}IDW Publishing has sent us a press release about the upcoming "All Hail Megatron" Transformers comic maxi-series. The release confirms the series is set after the previous Devastation arc, "one year later" to be exact. We're sure that was a completely arbitrary choice. In this future, the Decepticons have "dispatched" Optimus Prime and the Autobots, leaving nothing between them and domination of Earth. IDW promises a tale of "unrelenting evil," "destruction on a grand scale," and that the whole thing will "knock the fans' socks off." The whopping 12-part "maxi-series" begins in July 2008, with a script by Shane McCarthy and art by Guido Guidi. The first issue will ship with variant covers by Klaus Scherwinski and Trevor Hutchison.
