Comics Alliance is reporting that IDW‘s Transformers vs. GI Joe series will be coming to an end with the extra-sized, 48 page issue #13. Series writer/artist Tom Scioli had this to say:
“I’ll say it. It’s the greatest crossover of all time. This is the new standard by which all crossovers will be judged.
What a rare privilege in comics to begin something and to end it exactly as you envisioned. To create a universe and then torch it in the most explosive way imaginable. In the end, the creative challenge is the only thing that matters. When you push the limits, the world gets bigger. We wanted to see just how much juice you can squeeze out of these concepts and out of the comics page itself. How much story can fit into a comic book before the staples pop out? I look forward to seeing how the next generation of cartoonists builds on these innovations, the way we built on the work of those who came before us. I look forward to seeing the inevitable movie adaptation of this comic.”
A cover for the issue was also provided. What are your thoughts on the comic coming to a close? Let us know in the discussion thread.
