25 years of Transformers comic!

Simon Furman, one of the best known Transformers comic writers, tells
Totalscifionline.com why Transformers has remained so popular over the past
25 years

"From the classic 80s versions of the characters to Beast Wars to the movie
universe and beyond, Transformers is always keeping pace with each
successive generation of kids, and many of those kids stay engrossed and
excited by Transformers all the way into adulthood. Why? Because of the
amount of detailed and loving background work and story content that goes
into each reinvention, both from Hasbro and the creators involved in comics,
animation and movies. There's a real three-dimensional nature to both the
characters and the world(s) they inhabit.

"Back when we doing the UK Transformers comic in the 80s, my approach was
never to write down to kids or pull punches with the nature and reach of the
stories we were telling. Our audience responded very positively to that, and
it's another part of why, I think, those young fans kept reading, watching
and enjoying Transformers as they grew up. I still try bring those 'adult'
sensibilities to my Transformers work today, because the movies have brought
another new generation of kids into the fold and my aim is to keep them
reading!"

It could not have been said better than by Simon Furman himself. I'm stashing that comment away for future quoting purposes.
