Long before finding the AllSpark on Earth, or defeating the Fallen, or being discovered in the Dark of the Moon, the Autobots and Decepticons were influencing the American Industrial Revolution. Or, at least, that”s what writer Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi would have you believe in Evolutions: Hearts of Steel.Young inventor Tobias Muldoon didn”t impress Mr. Twain or Mr. Verne with his submarine prototype, but his dreams of finding financing and support to build fantastic machines comes to pass with the help from some unlikely supporters — Starscream, Shockwave, and a host of Decepticons. Meanwhile, Bumblebee is the lone Autobot roused from stasis by a small group of combatants hidden below ground for millennia. But time has greatly changed the surface of the planet they once waged war upon, and the wheels of progress have brought industry. Soon Bumblebee will befriend a human — a man named John Henry — and begin a frantic lesson in living amongst humans during the Industrial Revolution. A lesson that will teach both Autobots and Decepticons not to underestimate the power of man.
Ever wondered what form your favorite Transformers would take if they existed in different eras? Wonder no more, as IDW’s new Evolutions line debuts with “Hearts of Steel,” writer Chuck Dixon and artists Guido Guidi transplant the ‘bots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John Henry discovers that a steam drill is really an alien robot named Bumblebee. Before he can process this information, the pair is attacked by Decepticons disguised as tanks, trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by Starscream? And if so, will the other Autobots arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?
