Love 'em, hate 'em, but you have heard of them. They're the giant robots that turn into cars and shit that have been dominating cartoons and comics for 20 years. Recently the license was purchased by IDW publishing, who is rebooting the continuity, to fantastic results.
Written by long-time Transformers writer Simon Furman, it is a new origin for the Generation 1 Transformers. The element of disguise is a major focus, as the Transformers have been living unnoticed amongst humans for several years. Their first contact with humans on Earth is chronicled in this series. Most of the Transformers have updated alternate modes of current vehicles, although recognizable due to paint schemes similar to their original incarnations.
The follow-up to Infiltration, Escalation follows the second phase of the Autobot's plan. It focuses on the classic Generation 1 roster as well as a mysterious organization known as the Machination, who want the Transformer's technology for their own.
Although the series takes place at the same time as Infiltration, it parallels the story of the Autobot and Decepticon forces on earth with the ones on Cybertron.
