The sixth and final issue of Transformers: Nefarious, the official comic book sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, is out now in stores (August 18th in the US, 19th in the UK). Obviously can’t reveal too much about it, but it’s Autobot vs Autobot, Decepticon vs Decepticon and the Initiative is winning. And even if, somehow, the battle is won — everyone loses. It’s history repeating itself for Optimus Prime — a no-win scenario he never expected to face again. Plus, more on our mysterious Seeker. This one, as they say, has it all! Story by me, art by the superlative Carlos Magno.

I’m Birmingham bound (to Auto Assembly) later, so I just wanted to remind everyone what I’m lugging with me up the M40:
•Copies of the script for the (unpublished) Transformers: The War Within — Age of Wrath #4 (I’ll also have with me copies of some of Joe Ng’s amazing and I believe largely unseen pencils for the issue for people to look at, but these are not for sale)
•Copies of the scripts for my two AA Audio Dramas, this years and last’s. Note: I’ll only be offering the 2010 script for sale on the Sunday, after the live script reading on Saturday night.
•Transformers comics and graphic novels for sale/signature
•A very limited number of the exclusive TakaraTomy/Million Publishing Skids-Screech two-packs, complete with the original biogs (in English)I supplied for both characters (FYI, I named Screech, so I feel quite paternal).
•Copies of Rad Robots, my book on all things robotic from print and screen and more.
So drop by my table — say hi and get something signed. I’m there all weekend (except when I’m doing the comics creators panel on Saturday or my and Nick Roche’s creating Transformers comics talk on the Sunday). Look forward to seeing you there!
