Mars Attacks The Transformers

Published Date: January 2013
Written by: Shane McCarthy
Art by: Matt Frank
Colours by: Josh Perez
Edited by: Carlos Guzman
Cover price: $3.99

Synopsis: The Decepticons have finally been defeated. After a titanic battle in the centre of the City, Optimus Prime and his Autobots are victorious over Megatrons forces. However just as the ‘cons are being carried away by the US military, a new threat appears – Martians! And… they Attack! Despite being small they force the Autobots into cover, blowing Ironhide's arm off as a display of power.

Seeing a chance to re-join the battle, Megatron forges a truce with the Martians to help destroy the Autobots. The Decepticons re-engage the Autobots but just as both forces clash, a giant bubble encases them all. Realising he has been double crossed by the Martians, Megatron reluctantly agrees to join forces with Optimus Prime and the Autobots. They use a linked Soundwave and Blaster to destroy the giant bubble and attack the Martians as a combined force.

Despite a few setbacks (giant insects, miniaturise ray, Starscream's ambition), they rout the Martians. Just before the Aliens can counter, Cosmos appears to destroy their flying saucer fleet. Basking in their combined victory, Optimus extols the virtues of working together. Shaking hands with his nemesis / ally, he quickly realises that Megatron doesn’t share the same view. The battle goes on…
