Title: TRANSFORMERS HISTORIA

Publisher: IDW

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team:  Chris McFeely –  Writer :  Various – Artist :  Kei Za –  Cover Artist :  Sara Pitre-Durocher –  Variant Cover Artist

The IDW run of Transformers comics has probably been the best since the glory days of Marvel UK. With Bumblebee doing great at the box-office and the publisher about to relaunch its comics line after last years Unicron storyline, this is a great opportunity to catch up on current Transformers history.

From the Publisher:

“The year was 2005. The treacherous Decepticons and their heroic Autobot counterparts descended upon the Earth and unleashed a new era of Transformers comics through IDW Publishing. Thirteen years and hundreds of issues later, that universe has come to a close. Join Transformers historian Chris McFeely on a guide distilling the past 13 years of publishing history and remember the masterful storytelling of the first IDW Transformers run.

Written and compiled by Chris McFeely, host of the popular and accessible Transformers: The Basics on YouTube!

The perfect book for new readers to discover what they’ve been missing, lapsed readers to catch up, and old readers to remember all the good times! “
