â€œIt's due to launch in March '06, and in simple terms, will be a â€˜best ofâ€™ series, offering monthly 32-page comic reprints of many of the best Transformers books from the past, from the Marvel books to Dreamwaveâ€™s comics. Remember those Marvel Tales or Marvel's Greatest Comics reprints from the '70s? No? How old am I? Anyway, I remember reading those when I was a kid--that was where I was able to first afford to read the Galactus Saga. Same deal here--many of those old Transformers comics sell for $15-20 per issue. So we'll be offering those up, on better paper than they were ever printed on in the past, for $1.99.
â€œLet me just say that part again--IDW will be offering a monthly comic for under two bucks.
â€œWe've been hitting various message boards and talking to fans about their favorite past Transformers stories, so I'd definitely say that fan input here will play a big part in what we reprint. In fact, I encourage everyone in this thread to do our work for us... er, I mean, tell us their favorite stories and which ones you'd like to see. Single issues, multi-part arcs, whatever.
â€œThe further plan with these comics is to have some fun with them and have today's artists recreate the old covers in their own styles. I think the biggest thing that TF comics need is to have some fun injected back into them again.â€
He also talks of a futher Transformers comicbook series called 'Transformers: Evolution' in which rotating creative teams will each tell their own stand alone stories. See the full article here at Newsarama.com
