Transformers #1 Sells Out and Gets a Second Printing

IDW Publishing announced today that Transformers #1, the start of a bold new era of Transformers comic book continuity, has sold out at the distributor level. Due to its broad appeal, the swift sales of Transformers #1 has prompted a new printing of the issue, slated for release on June 5th.

Written by Brian Ruckley, author of the Godless World fantasy trilogy, and illustrated by Angel Hernandez and Cachét Whitman, the new Transformers series explores a critical time in Cybertron’s history: a world at peace, shaken by the first act of violence in generations. As a murder mystery unfolds, young Rubble and his mentor Bumblebee must come to grips with swirling conspiracies shattering the harmony of the society they hold so dear.
