THE GATHERING “STORM” IS EMBRACED BY TRANSFORMERS FANS
IDW Publishing’s THE TRANSFORMERS: STORMBRINGER #1
Sells Out In First Week of Release
San Diego, Calif. (July 28, 2006) – Fans of IDW Publishing’s TRANSFORMERS comics ventured back to CYBERTRON in record numbers. The July release of THE TRANSFORMERS: STORMBRINGER #1 sold out in its first week of release, exceeding expectations for this new title.
Spinning out of the just-completed first TRANSFORMERS arc, the Earth-bound “Infiltration,” STORMBRINGER looks in on the TRANSFORMERS’ homeworld of CYBERTRON itself, unlocking a dark chapter in the planet’s history, one that is about to hit the Autobots and Decepticons again… full force!
STORMBRINGER is a four-part miniseries that reunites the fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS team of writer Simon Furman and artist Don Figueroa. The pair is coming off the acclaimed first BEAST WARS miniseries, “The Gathering.” Artist Figueroa is providing a wraparound cover for all four issues of STORMBRINGER, each of which makes up one quarter of a poster-sized image.
Issue 2 of STORMBRINGER will be in stores on August 9.
