Posted by Sponsor on June 29, 2021 @ 3:15 am CT
Written by Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Justice League of America) with art by Agustin Padilla (Dungeons & Dragons, Suicide Squad) and colors by Jeremy Colwell, King Grimlock is a five-issue miniseries that casts one of the most iconic Transformers characters into a world of fantastical beasts and magical powers!
"King Grimlock is a sky-high dream come to life, a story so big and wild, I wasn’t sure if the Transformers universe could contain it," says Orlando. "This is a first-of-its-kind, science/fantasy epic for fans new and old, whether you follow the animation of the ‘80s, the modern shows of the ‘00s, the big screen blockbusters, the decades of incredible comics, or if you’ve been intrigued by Grimlock action figures on the shelf. Everyone’s welcome!"
"Right from the start, I knew that King Grimlock had all the ingredients to be an incredible project, and I’m really proud and excited to bring it to life with this great team," says Padilla.
"By taking a beloved character like Grimlock and spotlighting him in an epic barbarian fantasy, Steve, Agustin, and Jeremy are crafting an iconic story that expands the understanding of who Grimlock is and what a Transformers story can be," says editor David Mariotte. "Plus, a two-story tall robotic T-rex battles dragons, magicians, and monsters, which is awesome."
