The updates from Auto Assembly, Europe's largest Transformers convention, have kept coming in! In the last couple of days, two major announcement have been made: first off, the core creative team behind IDW Publishing's Transformers: ReGeneration One comics series will all be returning as guests
, and that includes Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman, Stephen Baskerville and John-Paul Bove; Jason Cardy, the cover colourist, will also be attending, as part of the newly created Artist Alley
at the convention, along with (for now) Kat Nicholson, Liam Shalloo and Kris Carter. Check out more below, and head here
for even further information!
We’re more than a little enthusiastic to announce that we are going to be joined this year by the entire creative team behind Regeneration One! Yes, once again writer Simon Furman, artist Andrew Wildman, inker Stephen Baskerville and colourist John-Paul Bove will all be in attendance along with cover colourist Jason Cardy who will be in our new Artists Alley that we have introduced for Auto Assembly 2014 and not only will they be around throughout the convention to meet fans, sign autographs and sketch for all of you (although we’re not too sure how many of you would be asking Simon Furman for sketches!), all five of them will be taking to the stage for a special Regeneration One themed panel.
As you can imagine with Regeneration One coming to a close, this is going to be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate with us what has been a rollercoaster ride as the team close a monumental comic series.
We’re always on the lookout for new ideas to introduce to the convention here at Auto Assembly, especially this year as we celebrate 30 years of Transformers so starting with Auto Assembly 2014 we are pleased to present the launch of Auto Assembly’s brand new Artists Alley…
As you’d expect, this is a new area we are setting aside at the convention to allow artists to showcase their work, sell original artwork, sketch for attendees and more but for this year we’re doing something rather special as the area is going to be a special All-Star Artists Alley! This year it is going to be playing host to nothing but professional comic artists who will be selling some of their original work, other projects they are involved with and, of course, sketching throughout the convention weekend.
