Getting Wrecked on My Birthday
Breaking my 'No Robots' rule again this week because I've got a book to sell. The TPB of 'Last Stand of The Wreckers' is out in comic shops, and will be in proper bookshops next week. (On Friday we reached the dizzying heights of number 55 in the Amazon Books>Comics>Graphic Novels chart! Not many can say that, right?
Anyway, the TPB collects the five issues of the critically-acclaimed Transformers series written by myself and James Roberts, and it is stuffed with more goodies than your mam on my birthday. (Which is today, so clear the decks) There's a ten-page prose story written by James called 'Bullets' which is essentially Wreckers #0, two new character prodiles writted and drawed by me, a '25 Things You Didn't Know About Wreckers', an ace pin-up by colourist Josh Burcham and some sketchy goodness from Josh and I to boot. We're really proud of this one, chaps, and can say with confidence that even non-TF fans will find this an accesible and fun read. But then, I would say that.
Here's a shot of out hunky-but-conflicted hero, Springer. Done for Forbidden Planet online, so there'll be a chance for YOU to win the original in the near future. I'll keep you updated.
So by the TPB of 'Last Stand opf The Wrecker' the sooner-the-quicker as your gift to me. And maybe I won't fill your mam with my goodies.
(Big thanks to Aimee, aka Ladywreck for the amazing sig!)
