IDW February Transformers Comics

IDW Publishing has released their publishing plans for February that continues the post civil war era for Transformers. In addition, the Infestation storyline invades the Transformers: Heart of Steel universe set during the Industrial Revolution. A total of four comics and two trades are being released that month. If you are interested in the books, just let your local comic book store know. For the full details of IDW's other books including GI Joe, Star Trek, Locke & Key, and more click here.

On a related note, Andrew Wildman has reported that Transformers #81 has been completed after 20 years of waiting. TF #81 is a continuation of the Marvel Transformers comics that he was one of the artists for. On his blog he wrote "Just finished all the pencil art for Transformers #81. So strange to be doing this stuff again and to pick up from the old Marvel stuff. So it’s 20 years since issue 80 but actually it was just like old times and I got these 22 pages done in 15 days. Not bad eh? couldn’t have done that 20 years ago. And they say you slow down when you get older. PAH!!!" I assume it will be solicited soon.
