IDW’s latest crossover will feature two major properties that seem like polar opposites, with a My Little Pony and Transformers crossover being created as a four-issue weekly comic book miniseries this May. The crossover comes from a creative team that includes James Asmus, Ian Flynn, Sam Maggs, Casey W. Coller, Jack Lawrence, Sara Pitre-Durocher, Priscilla Tramontano and Tony Fleecs.
The series will bring the conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons to the Ponies’ magical land of Equestria, with Twilight Sparkle and friends having to team with Optimus Prime to ensure that their home isn’t overrun by the forces of mechanical evil.
“Teaming Transformers and My Little Pony has been a dream we’ve had for a long time,” IDW Editor in Chief John Barber said in a statement. “We’re all really excited to see this mashup of characters by a mashup of creators who are honoring the legacy of both universes…and doing it in the most bonkers, fun way imaginable!”
The crossover will launch in comic stores and digitally on May 6, with new issues weekly throughout the month.
