“Together, Skybound and Hasbro have brought the TRANSFORMERS back to the top of the sales charts with the best-selling Energon Universe shared universe, and now it’s time to shine a light on the 40 years of comics and creators that paved the way,” said Sean Mackiewicz, SVP, Publisher, Skybound. “Starting with The Transformers and G.I.

JOE: A Real American Hero Compendium Vol. 1 being published this October, Skybound’s ongoing compendium release slate is an integral component of its overall comics partnership with Hasbro.
