TRANSFORMERS ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL STARRING BUMBLEBEE ARRIVES FALL 2018

An All-New, All-'80s Bumblebee Adventure From IDW Publishing


San Diego, CA (February 22, 2018) – IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce that in 2018 Bumblebee from the TRANSFORMERS franchise will star in his very own original graphic novel! The perfect jumping on point for the next generation of TRANSFORMERS fans, Transformers: Bumblebee – Win If You Dare gives readers the opportunity to join in the fan-favorite character’s adventures. Life can feel rough when you aren't the fastest or the tallest Autobot, but Bumblebee is up to the task!

When his best friend is hurt, Bumblebee takes it upon himself to finish the mission—and prove his worth to his fellow Autobots along the way. Things get tense as Bumblebee and a new human friend infiltrate a series of incredible races, hunting down dangerous foes and a devastating secret. It's an exciting new, action-packed '80s adventure! X-Men '92 co-writers Chad Bowers and Chris Sims along with artist Marcelo Ferreira (Back to the Future, Transformers: Windblade) have crafted a nostalgia-tinged, yet equally fresh standalone story.

"The exciting thing about this book is that it really hits all the highs of TRANSFORMERS for fans new and old," said IDW Associate Editor, David Mariotte. "It has action, adventure, racing and robots, but it also has a lot of heart and humor that comes through in this simultaneously retro and very modern package."

“This story is just a ton of fun,” said Michael Kelly, head of publishing at Hasbro. “Bumblebee is the ultimate underdog, and everyone loves an underdog. IDW has done a fantastic job bringing this iconic character to life for a new generation of fans.”

This new OGN will be available in comic shops and book stores September 11, 2018 for $9.99. It is available for pre-order now using ISBN: 978-1-68405-227-1.

Since its launch in 1984, TRANSFORMERS has grown to be one of the world’s most recognizable and successful toy and entertainment brands. Driven by compelling characters and a rich storyline, TRANSFORMERS revolutionized children’s entertainment as one of the first properties to produce a successful toy line, comic book, TV series and animated film. Throughout the franchise’s more than 30 years of history, thousands of unique TRANSFORMERS robots have been introduced through toy lines, multiple animated TV series have debuted, and animated and live-action films have thrilled audiences

All the way back in February IDW made a press release to tell the fans about a new graphic novel starring Bumblebee. Thanks to Newsarama, we have the full preview of the comic for your reading pleasure as well as all of the details on the book itself. We have to say that it looks pretty interesting already!

We think that it is worthy to note that this story takes place outside of the regular IDW universe and exists in a universe similar to G1. Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Blaster are all featured in their G1 designs but Windblade is included too. It will be interesting to see which other characters will be in this story when the book is released. If you would like a copy it is up for pre-order on Amazon when it is released on October 9, 2018. Have a read and tell us your thoughts. Will you be picking this one up?

Seems a lot more kid friendly then the usual IDW fare, not that's a bad thing, though I can see some being turned off by the faces but then again, there was some stories/pictures in the 80s that did similar.

Also that last panel, what was going on with Sideswipe and... What looks like the diagnostic Drone from Beast Machines?

Their faces are great. A lot of people will probably hate them but I love it :lol:

I think it makes them a lot more friendly looking which is good for some, especially kids. I like a mix of happy to serious.

Not my cup of tea. Too simplistic and the face annoys the hell out of me. Panel colors are nonexistent. Coloring is dull. Sorry, I like my comics detailed. This is too amateurish :(.

This looks as fun as it can be for a kids one off. But once again, Windblade is just stuffed into a place she doesn’t belong. They should have used Arcee if they wanted to go for a complete G1 look. Samurai-themed Autobot flyer just doesn’t work here. Don’t we have enough of her in every other facet of TF Media. I don’t hate Windeblade herself, I just hate how she’s becoming a new Bumblebee

Windblade being in it doesn't bother me as I just see it as an offshoot of g1. Also they couldn't have put arcee in there as she's on Cybertron chilling with Hot Rod and Springer ;-) :lol:
