It’s the end of an era. After 30 years and 100 (or so) somewhat interrupted issues, the founding/grounding Transformers saga reaches its epic conclusion. RG1 #100 (#100 in a four-issue limited series!) hits the stands this Wednesday (March 19th), and one way or another it is, definitively, the end. Storylines years in the making are wrapped up as the full extent of the threat to Cybertron (or is that Cybertrons?) is revealed. Of course, I’m not going to spoil anything here. Just to say that this is a conclusion not just to Regeneration One, but to the whole 100 (or so) issue saga. Seeds of this were sown waaay back, and while the substance of the overall threat has become more all-encompassing in the intervening years (between when the original series finished back in 1991 and RG1 starting up), the basic premise is what I was always pushing towards. Hopefully, it all ties together pretty nicely. But I’ll leave that for you, the reader, to judge. What I can reveal is that as well as three titanic Transformers artists (Andrew Wildman, Geoff Senior and Guido Guidi) combining their talents for #100, there’s a host of bonus material, including afterwords, bonus art, and a special prose story that deals with another layer of the conclusion we simply didn’t have room for in the main story (and come with a nifty illustration by JP). It’s a no ads, cover to cover, giant-sized fest of RG1 goodness. Don’t miss it. BTW, if you’re in or around London on March 29th, come to Orbital Comics and get your copy signed by (virtually) the whole team — myself, Andrew, Geoff, JP, Stephen and Jason.
