COUGAR HAPPENINGS (UPDATE)

What began as a humble mascot for Transformers auction website, TFAuctions, is about to explode into the worlds of Web and comics. Cougar, the roving robotic dealer in all things rare and perilous, is set for his own dedicated website and a monthly comic series, both of which will introduce Cougar (in full) and his all-new cast of characters. Cougar himself hit the Web a year or so back, co-created by myself, artist Guido Guidi and TFAuctions webmaster David Ravenscroft. He got an alt. mode, a full bio and now he’s got the lot, including arch nemesis Fenrir and (sort of) sidekick Kick-Start. Cougar’s official website is due to go live any time now, and the comic incarnation is set to hit in late 07 (with scripts by me). In meantime, click on the images below for a taster. There’s a new one of Cougar himself and a first look at Fenrir. Keep checking back in for further updates over the course of the next couple of weeks.

    Awesome, any ideas when the website will be live ?

    There’s a few bits to look at there right now, and I believe the site proper will be up and running in a week or so.

    Wait, are we talking web-comic or an actual monthly comic by IDW?

  4. Tyler Siloski says:

    It’s an actual comic, the Web comment refers to the website for Project Cougar. Though I’m not sure if IDW is the company handling the book…

  5. simon furman says:

    We’re definitely talking about a print comic here. Something you can physically have and hold. I’ll update you on the publisher as and when I can.
