For immediate release:
May 25, 2006
Iacon One is excited to announce that fan-favorite Transformers artist DON
FIGUEROA has joined our all-star guest lineup at the Fan Event of the Summer!
Most recently, Don pencilled the 4-issue "Beast Wars" mini-series
from IDW Publishing, and is currently hard at work on Simon Furman's
"Transformers: Stormbringer" mini-series, also for IDW. Past credits
include the hit mini-series "The War Within" (for which
he created dozens of alternate, 'pre-Earth' designs of familiar
Transformers characters) and "Transformers: Generation 1", both for
Dreamwave. He has also contributed character design and package art
for Hasbro, including helping with the design of the 20th Anniversary
Optimus Prime Figure, and new character designs for the upcoming
"Transformers Classics" line.
Don will be joining writer BOB BUDIANSKY on our comics Q&A panel,
signing autographs, and hanging out with the fans, and we're thrilled
to have him at Iacon One!
And speaking of Bob...
Chris Ryall, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of IDW Publishing,
recently revealed this little tidbit on the IDW discussion forums:
"Oh--and keep an eye out for a new Budiansky TF project in October,
too... details coming soon."
What is this project, Bob Budiansky's first work on Transformers
comics since 1989? Well, we're not spoiling the surprise, but it's a
safe bet Bob will be talking about it during our comics Q&A panel, so
don't miss it!
