The Transformers and The Terminator are set to face off in a new miniseries from Dark Horse Comics and IDW Publishing.

The new series titled Transformers vs. The Terminator will be written by David Mariotte, John Barber, and Tom Waltz with art by Alex Milne.

In a press a release from IDW, they detail the series is “an epic crossover that revisits the concepts of alien invasion and time-traveling resistance fighters… but twists them in unexpected ways.”

IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber described the chance to have these two franchises face off as “exciting.”

“I still remember the visceral thrill and terror of my first viewing of THE TERMINATOR, and while I’ve seen it a hundred times since then, it still gets my pulse running.”

He added:

“I’ve worked on TRANSFORMERS a lot over the years, and the opportunity to combine these two mechanistic universes together to see who comes out on top (while working alongside Tom, David, and my old collaborator Alex, no less) —well, it’s way too exciting a chance to pass up.”

Alex Milne described his love for both the Transformers and The Terminator franchises.

“TRANSFORMERS was a large part of my childhood; I was captivated, wanting to see how Optimus Prime would foil the plans of Megatron. Later, I came across THE TERMINATOR and was amazed by the idea of a robot pretending to be a human, sent back in time to hunt down a specific target. Now, as an adult, I’m very pleased to lend my talents to a project which sees these sci-fi icons brought together!”

Mariotte announced the series on Twitter not he is “very excited” about the series.

He would go on to thank the cover artists on the series as well.

The series will feature a number of variant covers. The main Cover A is done by Gavin Fullerton. Alex Milne will provide Cover B. There will also be two Retailer Incentive variant covers by Freddie E. Williams II and Francesco Francavilla.

The series will debut sometime in March 2020.
