The pop culture collision of the summer continues in Marvel & IDW Publishing's New Avengers/Transformers #2 (of 4), as the Autobots and Avengers come to blows...with each other? Writer Stuart Moore and artist Tyler Kirkham assemble to bring you this clash of heroes...while Doctor Doom and Megatron lay in wait! But what is the connection between these diabolical villains? Why was Spider-Man taken hostage? Answers come fast and furious, but when the dust settles, there may not be anyone left standing to prevent Armageddon!
"In the debut issue, we built slowly to the big first meeting of these two famous groups, and here's where the readers' patience pays off," said editor Bill Rosemann. "The Avengers - who have been pushed to a violent place due to the Decepticons chicanery - and the Autobots - who have rolled in to squash the rising tempers-run head-on into each other ... as blood-and oil-will flow!"
Fans and critics everywhere are lauding New Avengers/Transformers, with Aaron Stueve of BrokenFrontier.Com raving that, "on this book [Marvel & IDW] do a bang up job... The story is at times subtle, at times sharp, and always good."
"This a great book for fans to share with friends and family," added Nick Marino of ComicNewsInternational.Com. "Tyler Kirkham has a great touch for the characters in this story."
Robots In Disguise, Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the most powerful villains either team have ever faced-what else do you need? It's time to assemble and roll out with New Avengers/Transformers #2!
