Dreamwave Officially Closed

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | 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.�

WORLDS COLLIDE IN TRANSFORMERS ARMADA

Written by admin on | Comics,Dreamwave,News,Press Release |

Matt Moylan from Dreamwave sent us this press release

The TRANSFORMERS universe is about to unravel before your very eyes! TF masters Simon Furman and Don Figueroa (The War Within) reunite for Worlds Collide, a generation-spanning saga that starts this summer in TRANSFORMERS ARMADA #14.

It begins here…the ARMADA storyline that ALL TRANSFORMERS fans have been demanding! The MINI-CON OVER-RUN arrives with a dire warning for the ARMADA TRANSFORMERS Chaos is coming! And he’s right…big time! The walls between realities are starting to crumble, and from beyond come agents of darkness, all-too familiar faces bent on destruction and mayhem. But they serve an even greater power…one that even now has ARMADA OPTIMUS PRIME squarely in its sights!

Expect some very familiar faces to be popping up in ‘Worlds Collide’, says Furman, as an old enemy (or five) starts mixing it up on ARMADA Earth and CYBERTRON. We’re really going to be shaking up the ARMADA-verse over the next few issues, and all the safety catches are off. Expect big, epic, world-shattering stuff. Chaos is coming… and nothing will ever be the same again.?

But don’t forget about those elusive MINI-CONS, as the current lead-in storyline will give some hints about the role these tiny titans will have in Worlds Collide. In issue #13, we start to get a very clear indication that these guys have been holding back…in a big way. When ARMADA OPTIMUS PRIME disappears, and MINI-CON OVER-RUN appears, things escalate in a very big and bad way.

Worlds Collide starts in TRANSFORMERS ARMADA #14, on sale August 2002.

Simon Furman interview at CNI

After teasing us with Terminator related interviews all week, Simon Furman has finally sat down and talked about Transformers (yah!). CNI caught up with him and discussed all sorts about Transformers, from the current IDW series, to working for Dreamwave and Marvel to the Movie Prequel.

There are some spoilers relating to the IDW series and how the Spotlights fit in, so only read if you don’t mind.

CNI Who is your favorite Transformers character and why?Furman I hate this question, because the answer is always Grimlock and everyone always groans. I just love borderline, conflicted characters. You (and the reader) never know what they�re going to do next! But, I�ve taken pains to sideline Grimlock (so far) in the Infiltration/Escalation/Devastation-verse, so I am coming to appreciate other characters.

The full interview can be found here.
