Generation 1
New Transformers Comic
Jack - Wednesday, December 12, 2001


New Transformers comics are here! Dreamwave Productions of Canada, announces that they have licensed the rights from Hasbro to produce a new Transformers comic and other products. Under the aggreement, Dreamwave will produce comics, posters, calendars and other Transformers themed merchandise.

The interest in the original Transforners is on the rise with the success of Robots in Disguse. Recently beating out out Pokemon in the November sweeps, there is clearly an expanding market for show merchandise beyond the regular toys lines. Mass produced show related products have not been readily available since the Generation 1 and 2 series. So this is indeed welcome news for Transformers fans everywhere.

The special part of this announcement is there will be a new line of Transformers comic books. No authors or plans for a story line have been revealed at this time. However, we do know that Dreamwave will be doing the artwork for the new publications and products. Click on the images for detailed examples of work by Deamwave artist Pat Lee.
