The wonderfully talented Simon Furman has shared with the world the fate of an unpublished Transformers Beast Wars comic on Simonfurman.wordpress.com. This series, which was written during the collapse of Dreamwave Publications, was a story that would interweave Beast Wars - The Animated series and the one-shot comic Summer Special. The Transformers Summer Special was produced in the summer of 2004 and featured stories from Generation 1, Energon, Robots in Disguise, and Beast Wars. The latter two were put to a vote by fans, and the winner (Beast Wars) was to be the next Transformers comic series. The Summer Special was to be an annual mini-series, but due to Dreamwave's bankruptcy only one issue was published. The financial troubles of Dreamwave put Furman in a position to salvage a half written story and put his own spin on it.

Simon Furman wrote:I tapped a bunch of characters that had never made it into the show, including a kind of cool bad guy called Magmatron, and set about entwining two story threads, that would serve to pull the core TV show characters back to Earth (and pick up Rattrap’s ‘dream’ from the Summer Special), and kickstart a big new storyline that dealt with all the other Stasis Pod (and their protoforms) that had kind of got left behind on Earth. In the end, the first story arc was mapped out and two issues were written before $&^% really hit the fan and Dreamwave closed its doors. Don (Figueroa) even drew the whole first issue — and it looked great!


So Furman is now hitting the conventions, and shedding light on this lost piece of lore. All the Cool Stuff is helping to get the stories out to fans who cannot make it to the shows. The list of available, signed stories is below:

-Signed Script of Transformers: Beast Wars #1

-Signed Script of Transformers #80 (Marvel US)

-Signed Script of Transformers: Age of Wrath #4

-Signed Script of Transformers: Age of Wrath #5

Furman has posted the who and why's of these unpublished stories on his site which can be found by clicking here.

Don't miss your opportunity to own an unpublished piece of Transformers history signed by the man who was there from the beginning. I would like to also add that these items will be available at the Roll Out, Roll Call Transformers and G.I. Joe convention and Furman will be on hand to sign items... for free. For information on Roll Out, Roll Call, click here.

I'd love it if Simon would post some purchase links to these scripts as digital download PDFs. While I'm less interested in having the rare memorabilia of an old script (mostly just for the clutter factor), I WOULD jump at paying a few bucks to read a digital version of these... especially the Wrath wrap up.

Age of Wrath - War Within we're talking about here, right?

What are the chances of the rights getting bought by IDW and finishing that volume?

Someone needs to get these and publically post them online for all eyes to behold.

Even if they're the same story, I could see someone enjoying the read -- just as someone could enjoy the book that inspired a movie, or a comic adaptation, etc.

That said, can anyone confirm or deny the Beast Wars story is the same as the comic story? I'm less interested in it, and more interested in the Age of Wrath wrap-up.

Willing to do this, but not sure if Simon would be happy about it.
Should have asked him yesterday.

I'll send him an e-mail.

I spoke to Simon, and he'd rather these were not publicly available.
As much as I'd really like people to read them, I also respect his point of view as author.

I'll paste his e-mail here:

Simon Furman wrote:I'd rather the scripts weren't 'published' anywhere, and I would ask you to not supply the scans. If it's just to read, that's fine. But the worth of the scripts is in their lack of general availability, so I discourage electronic copies, but ultimately it's a hard thing to control.

Thanks for checking in with me on this.

Cheers--

--Simon

Darn it. I would so badly wanna read them when the time would come for me to start reading the Dreamwave comics (still in the process of reading older TF comics).

If I had them, I'd also want to share them with others so they could experience them too. That's one of the things i don't like about exclusive material. Only a select few can really enjoy them while everybody else is left in the dark.

Hopefully whoever gets them would at least post extremely thorough, extensive, and descriptive summaries of them for people to read.

I posted in his thread... I'd be glad to pay for these... but don't want to pay to SHIP them from the UK, which would cost more than they would. I just want to pay, and download them.

I will attempt a summary, as soon as I get round to some spare time to read them.
Waiting for issue 3 to arrive, before I spoil the ending any further.
