Transformers Prequel to the Upcoming Blockbuster Movie Looking Like a Blockbuster, Too

First Two Issues of IDW's Movie Prequel Comic Completely Sold Out

March 28, 2007, San Diego, CA - With the recent release of new one- sheets showing the first official poster images of OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON, fan anticipation for the big-screen TRANSFORMERS movie opening on July 4 continues to grow. This interest is evidenced in another way, too -- the first two issues of IDW Publishing's Transformers: The Official Movie Prequel comic book miniseries are officially sold out through Diamond Comic Distributors.

The Movie Prequel comic book, co-written by longtime TRANSFORMERS scribe Simon Furman and IDW's Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall and featuring art by fan-favorite artist Don Figueroa, offered fans the first official look at the characters and storyline to come in the summer movie release. This all-new, four-part storyline spanned centuries and planets, taking the story from the TRANSFORMERS' world of CYBERTRON through space to Earth, where players on both sides are gathering for a coming war. IDW released a special WizardWorld LA convention-exclusive edition of issue 1, limited to 1,000 copies, and will also distribute a special Free Comic Book Day version of the comic in May. But otherwise, that first issue, and issue 2, which features MEGATRON's arrival on Earth, have all been snatched up by anxious fans.

"This is especially gratifying to me," said co-writer Ryall, "since we've been doing Transformers comics for over a year now, and I've got to see from the start how fan interest in the movie has turned from wariness to absolute fervor."

Overall interest in THE TRANSFORMERS comics seems to be growing, too, as evidenced by other recent sell-outs, including:

  • The Transformers: Infiltration TPB. A second printing is on press right now.

  • Transformers Spotlight: Hot Rod

  • The Transformers: Escalation issues 2 and 4


  • Additionally, IDW has seen a spate of other titles sell out completely, too:

  • Zombies vs Robots issues 1 and 2

  • Ashley Wood's Grande Finale 1st and 2nd Printings

  • All issues of 24: Nightfall

  • Sparrow: Phil Hale


  • Issue 3 of Transformers: the Official Movie Prequel will be in stores on April 11. Issue 4 is set for May 2. Following that miniseries, IDW will release Transformers: The Official Movie Adaptation, by Kris Oprisko and Alex Milne, as a weekly comic book throughout the month of June. With both those projects in stores a month ahead of the movie itself, fans will find themselves fully armed as they head in to see the big-screen spectacle.

    Eric Holmes, writer of the upcoming Megatron Origins comics, sat down with CBR for an interview about how this comicbook came to be.

    "The book is all about the origins of the war, the Decepticons and my favorite Transformer of all - Megatron. The project came about because as long as this war has been going on, I had never seen a definitive origin that gave a reason for things to end up the way they are in regular continuity. There's talk of a war, and gladiatorial battles and some general pursuit over the control of energy, but it was never tied up in a way that could you why".

    "There'll be a bunch of other Transformers in the story, all a little tweaked from what you know. It's fun to imagine who is doing what before the war. The focus is mostly on the classic characters, the ones there right from the beginning. Prowl. Soundwave. Starscream. A few of the lesser-seen characters. Ratbat. Blades. A bunch of cameos of people in civilian life. We have a Prime, but it's not Optimus - it's Sentinel Prime. There are a lot of ideas in this. I honestly wish I had more pages - you could do a lot "before the war" and continue it as the war is spreading across the planet".

As well as the regular Wildfur news page, the site now links directly to the personal blogs of both Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman (and the Draw The World Together charity site). So, for (semi-) regular news/updates on Transformers, other comics/animation projects, personal appearances, stuff for sale and the like, go to www.wildfur.net and follow the links..."
