Featuring all new stories by original writers Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman 

Press release

Picking up the story twenty-one years later, IDW Publishing, in association with Hasbro, is pleased to announce TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE, an all-new monthly series continuing from the original Generation One TRANSFORMERS comics. IDW will kick off the event by offering fans a free TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5 for Free Comic Book Day, May 5, 2012, as a Gold Sponsorship comic—then continue with TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #81 in July!

Writer Simon Furman and legendary TRANSFORMERS artist Andrew Wildman are back to their original roots with all-new stories, beginning with the free TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5. Starting after 1991’s TRANSFORMERS #80 comic epic conclusion, the free issue picks up as OPTIMUS PRIME watches over a CYBERTRON that hasn’t faced MEGATRON for decades. But that peace shudders to an end and dives headlong into July’s new series. “The original TRANSFORMERS saga is back—with a vengeance!” exclaimed Furman, “‘epic’ doesn’t cover it!”

TRANSFORMERS: REGENRATION ONE #81 comic will feature many fan-favorite Generation One TRANSFORMERS characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, GRIMLOCK, KUP, HOT ROD, ULTRA MAGNUS and more. “Its always nice to complete unfinished business, even after 20 years,” said Wildman. Artist Stephen Baskerville, the original inker on the classic issues, joins Wildman on interiors as inker, as Wildman also provides eye-catching covers. 

TRANSFORMERS: REGENRATION ONE comic is an important book to TRANSFORMERS fans,” IDW Senior Editor John Barber commented, “and expectations are high. Fortunately Simon, Andrew, and Stephen have only gotten better since the last issue!”

TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5 (Free, 32 pages; full color) will be available on May 5, 2012 as part of Free Comic Book Day.

TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #81 ($3.99, 32 pages; full color) will be available in July 2012.Transformers_RegenerationOne_81_Cvr
