Simon Furman Interviewed

Written by Big Bot on January 29, 2008 | Comics,Dreamwave,IDW Publishing,Interviews,Marvel,News,Titan |

TFW2005 have sat down with comic writer Simon Furman and discussed his work on Transformers comics, but also his views on the Transformers movie, and how he feels it should have been done.

TFW2005: (Further along the expanded universe angle) Are there any possibilities to seeing any stories from Transformers past or Transformers future that would have all new characters we have never seen before (no Optimus, no Megatron, no G1 homages, etc)?

Simon Furman: There’s always that potential I suppose, and we are going right back in time for The Thirteen, which features a (largely) new cast of characters we’ll be building from the ground up. Not sure about the future. I don’t really want to do an animated TF movie thing and scrap everything in favour of a new cast. There’s so much potential in the present day cast still to explore in new and different ways. That’s where my creative energies are focused right now.

Dreamwave Beast Wars Script

Written by Big Bot on December 26, 2007 | Beast Wars,Comics,Dreamwave,News |

Simon Furman has uploaded a special Christmas present for all Transformers fans, the original script for Dreamwave’s Beast Wars Issue #1, which was due to come out in 2006 before the company went bankrupt. It makes an interesting read for any Beast Wars fans who are interested in how it would have differed for IDW’s Beast Wars series, The Gathering.

Written by admin on | Comics,Dreamwave,News |

Check out and exclusive 3 page preview of TRANSFORMERS G1 Vol.2 #3 at www.dreamwaprod.com. It’s guaranteed to tantalize your optics!

They’re baaack. The DINOBOTS return and are ready to make anything and everything foolish enough to get in their way extinct! Branded as criminals of war, OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS face public execution via the smelting pools of CYBERTRON. And while it may appear that our heroes are headed for that big scrap heap in the sky, the end is far from near when GRIMLOCK and his DINOBOTS come crashing to the rescue. But even if the AUTOBOTS are able to escape SHOCKWAVE’S forces are they prepared for what else lurks in the wastelands of CYBERTRON. And what happens when STARSCREAM and SOUNDWAVE form an unholy alliance that promises to return the DECEPTICONS to power. The latest chapter in 2003’s most action-packed saga promises even more thrills, chills and utter carnage than the first two issues combined!

TRANSFORMERS G1 Vol.2 #3 goes on sales June 25.

The Ultimate Doom

According to this report at the Allspark that the whole Dreamwave goin’ down thing is looking more and more likely.  The DW website is down completely and apparently Roger Lee (DW business manager) has registered another site called www.dreamengine.ca.  Whether they’re shifting assets over to a new company to soldier on from there is unknown, but lets hope for the best, and maybe a word or two from DW themselves

Dreamwave Officially Closed

Written by admin on | Comics,Dreamwave,News |

Dreamwave have issued a statement concerning it’s closure

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, Ontario � January 4, 2005 – Dreamwave Productions announced today that after eight years in the comics industry, four of which they were self-published, they will be ceasing operations.

Established in 1996 by brothers Pat and Roger Lee, Dreamwave infused a stagnant comic book market with art and design that effortlessly combined the then dominant �American� art style with the newly emerging Japanese �Manga� art style. Since then, the company had grown to become one of the comic book industry�s premiere publishers, producing a variety of original titles.

In 2002, Dreamwave firmly established itself in the comic industry as a force to be reckoned with when it launched an all-new Transformers comic�s line. The return of the 80�s icons shattered industry sales records, skyrocketing the book to the number one sales slot for an impressive six months. The Toronto-based company�s other successful licenses included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Duel Masters from Japan, as well as properties like Devil May Cry and Mega Man from video game giant Capcom Entertainment.

President of Dreamwave Productions, Pat Lee stated �there are a number of reasons for my decision to close Dreamwave�, citing that �the shrinking comic book market combined with a weak U.S. dollar and unsustainable monetary commitments has finally proven to be too financially taxing.�

As the only Canadian independent comics publisher, Dreamwave Productions has struggled in recent years to maintain its status within a relentlessly shrinking comic book market. Unfortunately, consistently diminishing sales totals over the last several years have taken their toll on the small publisher and made it impossible to continue.

The specific details for closure have not yet been released but Lee assures both fans and clients alike that �although this is the end of Dreamwave as a comics publisher, I will still be penciling a number of new exciting projects in conjunction with other studios in the upcoming years.�
