IDW Publishing announced Transformers: Escape, a five-issue miniseries starting in December.

As Cybertron heads deeper into a state of war, the Autobots need to save innocent bystanders caught in the middle of the conflict between the Cybertronian factions. This series is written by Brian Ruckley, the purveyor of IDW’s Transformers continuity since 2019, and represents a continuation of the ongoing world canon.

“Escape’s a cocktail of what I love most about Transformers, with some of my favorite characters and a few surprise guest stars caught up in a pretty epic escalation,” said Ruckley. “I’ve always thought it would be a pretty terrifying, bewildering experience for aliens – non-Cybertronians – to be caught between warring factions of big transforming robots. We’re exploring the question: Who are the most dangerous Cybertronians of all?”

The miniseries will be illustrated by Bethany McGuire-Smith, and the first issue will feature four cover variants by McGuire-Smith, Winston Chan, Sara Pitre-Durocher, and Alex Milne. The Pitre-Durocher and Milne variants will be offered as retailer incentives.

IDW Publishing will also release Transformers / Back to the Future in October (see "'Transformers' Go 'Back to the Future' in Comic Series").
