The Transformers: Escalation

    (Idea + Design Works, 2006)
and 2006 Hasbro

IDW continues their re-imagining of the Transformers mythos with this series that follows directly from the initial Infiltration miniseries. After providing some insights into the history of the Robots in Disguise with the Stormbringer mini-series and assorted Spotlight books, writer Simon Furman begins to unravel the reasons for why the Autobots and Decepticons have brought their war to Earth and sets the stage for future events.

Infiltration artist E.J. Su re-teams with Furman to chronicle the war campaign on Earth as the two heavyweights, Megatron and Optimus Prime, have decided to take a personal hand in local affairs.
