TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5 for Free Comic Book Day 2012

IDW’s continuation of the original Marvel Comics “Transformers” series will be available in May.

After a twenty-year wait, IDW Publishing today proudly announced the return of the original Generation One TRANSFORMERS comics, beginning with the free TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5, available on Free Comic Book Day, May 5, 2012 as a Gold Sponsorship comic. Fan-favorite writer Simon Furman and legendary TRANSFOMERS artist Andrew Wildman pick up right where 1991’s TRANSFORMERS #80 left off, and lead into this all-new month series, kicking off in July with TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #81.
Starting with the free TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5, OPTIMUS PRIME, GRIMLOCK, KUP, HOT ROD and all the favorite Generation One TRANSFORMERS characters charge into the future. Reflecting back on the dizzying highs and the terrifying lows of the original run of Transformers comics, 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 TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #81.
