Transformers ReGeneration One #80.5 cover
The first official artwork for Transformers ReGeneration One (formally know an as TF81), THE direct continuation on the old 80 issue Marvel run (from 1984-1991). TFRG1 is written by Simon Furman ([link]
) and is due for launch mid-2012.
This is a stop-gap issue (hence 80.5) leading up to issue 81, the proper start of the series, and will be IDW's contribution to "Free Comic Book Day" (May 5th).
TFRG1 covers are drawn by Andrew Wildman ([link]
) and coloured by me. I don't often post anything on DA that I don't draw myself these days, but this piece is quite significant- I used to read these comics as a kid (sorry to make you feel old, WildFur!) and it was an honour and privilege to be asked to colour this cover!
Old-school TF fans wanted a continuation of the old Marvel comic and IDW has obliged. I hope those who remember the old stories can't wait to see how they finally end!
Thanks for looking!
