If you’ve been with us on our BotCon 2013 Coverage, yesterday we revealed an upcoming novel by David J. Williams and Mark S. Williams titled Transformers: Retribution. The novel aims to reveal what happened when the Transformers fled Cybertron to head towards earth.
io9 has posted an excerpt from this upcoming book, including the cover image.
The book is set after the events of the War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron games, and before the Transformers: Prime cartoon, but editor Frank Parisi promises any fan of the original series will enjoy it — especially as it’s filled with classic characters “reintroduced” to the new continuity, but based on their Generation 1 counterparts. This includes everybody from Ultra Magnus and Perceptor to Blaster, Kup, and even Wreck-Gar and the Junkions!
“Imagine all of your favorite classic Transformers characters in all-out, epic warfare on a new world and on Cybertron,” explains Parisi excitedly. “Autobots vs. Decepticons, Transformers vs. Quintesson-led Sharkticon armies spearheaded by the forces of the giant doom-bringing robot called Tyrannicon. Optimus Prime is pushed to the brink as a hero and a leader, [and] Megatron has to plumb the depths of will he forged in the gladiatorial arenas of his past.”
And that’s not even mentioning the insane final battle that — well, we’ll save some surprises. But for an early look at Retribution before its January 2014 release, look no farther! We begin with Autobots and the Decepticons deep in battle, but a new enemy is about to enter the fray…
