The Energon Universe Continues With the Next Chapter in January 2024

"Daniel Warren Johnson delivers a passionate and fast-paced opening issue that bursts with explosive action but also deftly captures the personalities of the beloved figures." - Lotusland Comics

'"By all rights, a Transformers comic shouldn’t be this good, but the Energon Universe team pulled it off, launching the Transformers into a bold new era that will leave readers eager to find out what happens next." - Screen Rant

Today Skybound, in collaboration with leading toy and game company Hasbro, revealed an impressive lineup of variant covers and interior pages for Daniel Warren Johnson’s TRANSFORMERS #4. The fourth issue of the smash hit series, TRANSFORMERS, will be available on shelves in comic book shops January 10, 2024.

TRANSFORMERS #4 continues the Energon Universe and the all-new era of the iconic TRANSFORMERS franchise from Daniel Warren Johnson (Extremity, Do a Powerbomb) and colorist Mike Spicer (Stillwater, Murder Falcon). When the Decepticons attack the Autobots at their weakest moment, an unlikely new hero joins the battle! With human and Transformer robots lives at stake, can Optimus Prime unlock the true power behind the Matrix of Leadership to save them both?

In addition to the main cover by Daniel Warren Johnson and Mike Spicer, the stacked list of variant covers for TRANSFORMERS #4 includes a wraparound cover by Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans), a 1:10 incentive variant continuing the connecting cover series by Orlando Arocena (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), a 1:25 incentive variant by Sanford Greene (Bitter Root), and a 1:50 incentive variant by Andrea Milana (Cobra Commander) & Annalisa Leoni (Oblivion Song).

The Energon Universe officially began in June 2023 with the surprise first appearance of iconic TRANSFORMERS character Jetfire in Void Rivals #1, introducing the historic new collaboration between Hasbro and Skybound, with TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE comics finding a new home with the publisher. The Energon Universe expands in December with Duke #1, a limited series from Joshua Williamson (DC’s Superman, Dark Ride), Tom Reilly (The Thing) and Jordie Bellaire (W0rldtr33). This will be followed by the launch of Cobra Commander #1 in January 2024, from Joshua Williamson, Andrea Milana and Annalisa Leoni. Fans should expect can’t-miss moments from every issue of the Energon Universe, as secrets are unveiled along the path to answering the BIG questions, including #WhereIsMegatron.

TRANSFORMERS #4 (Lunar Codes Below | $3.99) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
