Comic News:
Dreamwave Goes To The Beginning
By Brian Jacks


Dreamwave Productions has announced that they'll be heading back to the Day One, as far as the Bots are concerned. THE WAR WITHIN, the story that tells it all from the very beginning, is a title formed by Dreamwave and the legendary Transformers writer Simon Furman. Before ARMADA, before the BEAST WARS, even before GENERATION 1 there was...THE WAR WITHIN, The Great War between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS.

THE WAR WITHIN V.2 THE DARK AGES is the sequel to the successful THE WAR WITHIN. Dreamwave says the bots are now larger and more powerful as artist Andrew Wildman pencils them larger-than-life.

Simon Furman has had a long history with Transformers but has always had a special interest in the world of Cybertron. "I thought that there is a whole wealth of stories to tell which sets up a kind of bedrock for their new, slightly realigned universe, he says."

Pat Lee, President of Dreamwave Productions says, "THE WAR WITHIN V.2: THE DARK AGES is going to be an extremely exciting book with new designs by myself and Don Figueroa. It was crucial for us to make Transformers fans feel that they are going to be part of a great historical event in the Transformers timeline and bring them a story that has never been told before."

Andrew Wildman's (GI Joe, X-Men Adventures, The Hulk) work with Transformers is most recognized by his ability to make them come to life with human qualities and expressions. Lee expresses, "It's really exciting to bring back the team of Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman, they are best suited for this project and I can't wait to see it hit the shelves!"

TRANSFORMERS: THE WAR WITHIN Part 2 #1 is set to hit comic store shelves this October 2003, marking the first series' anniversary."
