IDW Announces "Transformers #1" Headed To Second Printing

IDW Publishing announces today that Transformers #1, the start of a bold new era of Transformers comic book continuity, has sold out at the distributor level. Due to its broad appeal, the swift sales of Transformers #1 has prompted a new printing of the issue, slated for release on June 5th.

“The response to the new Transformers series has been amazing,” says editor David Mariotte. “For a franchise with such a rich history — not just here, but in so many mediums — the first issue was something we knew we had to get right and it’s incredibly gratifying to me, the incredible creative team, the fine folks at Hasbro, and probably to Rubble and Bumblebee that so many people have jumped on-board. We have a lot more coming!”

Written by Brian Ruckley, author of the Godless World fantasy trilogy, and illustrated by Angel Hernandez and Cachét Whitman, the new Transformers series explores a critical time in Cybertron’s history: a world at peace, shaken by the first act of violence in generations. As a murder mystery unfolds, young Rubble and his mentor Bumblebee must come to grips with swirling conspiracies shattering the harmony of the society they hold so dear.

This bold new era of Transformers comics builds upon IDW Publishing’s fourteen years of storytelling with this beloved Hasbro brand. Delicately balancing action with startlingly personal drama, IDW’s Transformers comics have earned a fiercely loyal fanbase and much critical acclaim. The fresh new take of the bi-weekly Transformers series is designed to appeal to longtime fans and curious newcomers alike.
