Void Rivals #1 launched the all-new shared Energon Universe with the surprise first appearance of iconic Transformers character Jetfire. The stealth launch introduced the historic new collaboration between Hasbro, a toy and game company, and Skybound, with Transformers and G.I. Joe comics finding a new home with the publisher.
The connections to Transformers lore continued in Void Rivals #2, with the fan favorite Skuxxoid making their Energon Universe debut and setting the stage for more exciting debuts to come.

However, when pilot Darak and his rival Solila both crash on a desolate planet, these two enemies must find a way to escape together. But are they alone on this strange planet? And what dark forces await that threaten the entire universe? After the jaw-dropping reveal in the debut issue, everything Darak and Solila thought they knew about the Sacred Ring’s never-ending war has changed. To deliver the truth back home, they must first get off this deadly planet—by any means necessary.
