IDW Launches Transformers Animated Miniseries


Back when I announced the release of the Animated Transformers DVD, it seemed that people weren't too crazy about it.  I haven't seen it.  I do sort of like the art on here on the cover.  Sure it's not your traditional Transformers look but except for the little happy girl, it looks good. 

I'm all for re-interpretation. It's like when you hear a really good cover song by another band.  They can take a song you know and like and turn it into something else cool.  I know the automatic reaction is that this will be watered down "for the kids."  I'm not sure but I think I just may check this out.

For newcomers as well as longtime fans, IDW Publishing - under license from Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS), is proud to announce the release of The Transformers Animated: The Arrival #1 — the first of a series of five ALL-NEW ORIGINAL comics. The story arc takes place in the continuity of the first season of the “Animated” TV show, airing on Cartoon Network.**In “Dispatches,” Animated series head writer Marty Isenberg, along with artist Dario Brizuela take a brand-new look at the story behind the AUTOBOTS’ arrival on Earth. You’ve seen the Animated movie, but do you know the whole story? You will as ULTRA MAGNUS, SENTINEL PRIME, STARSCREAM, BLACKARACHNIA, and many more tell their sides of the story that started it all! The TRANSFORMERS Animated series will also feature OILSLICK, who was originally intended to be a toy-only character, but the creators found a place to fit him into the comic.

Alex Milne and Marcelo Matere each provide a special cover for this debut issue.**FC • 32 pages • $3.99
