Comic Book News: Preview page of "Transformers The Definitive G1 Collection"

Direct from Simon Furman's Facebook page is a preview image from the "Transformers The Definitive G1 Collection" comic book. This page is a color version of a page that was originally printed in black and white in the UK. Check out the scribe's own words on the topic:

"For the first time, all the UK black & white strips - published in Transformers UK #215-289, will be reprinted/collected in glorious full colour. Can't tell you how long I've been pushing and hoping for a publisher to come in and get this material colourised. And thanks to Hachette this is finally happening. John-Paul Bove, he of Regeneration One and many other IDW/Transformers colouring gigs, is bringing his unique (chameleon-like) colouring skills to bear on classic strips like Aspects of Evil, Perchance to Dream, Out To Lunch and many more. And what's more he'll be colouring them as if we were back in the late 80s, in the style of the time (albeit fully digitally). Anyone who saw JP's amazing colour work on Transformers: Regeneration One #0 (a multi-artist/story issue reflecting different eras and iterations of G1) will know how he goes the extra half-mile (and then some) to meld modern colouring techniques with the look and feel of the time. The third release, 'The Primal Scream' in the DefG1 series, features the first of this newly colourised material - but there's more (much more) to come. This is a true exclusive/first for Transformers: The Definitive Collection - so for the whole G1 story, subscribe now! https://www.hachettepartworks.com/transformers-the-definitive-g1-collection."

For fans in or around London, remember there is a signing happening soon at Orbital Comics!
