April Fools from Transformers Club

Written by Big Bot on | BotCon,Comics,Conventions,News |

In one of the funnier April Fools in recent years, the Official Transformers Club posted three comic pages that turned out to be special made just for yesterday.

Originally, it was announced that 3 pages of the BotCon 08 comic would be previewed on 3rd April, but 3 different pages were “leaked” early. Ironically, the pages have gotten a lot of fan praise, with hopes that the comic will be continued in some form.

The official comic will still be revealed this Thursday, with a new guest as well.

04/01/08 – Happy April Fools’ Day!
As many of you know, a few fan sites front paged the news of our “leaked” 3 page comic preview during the midnight hours. Well, yes, it is true, those pages were done specifically for April Fools Day. A big thanks to Greg Sepelak and S. Trent Troop for helping to pull off the joke. However, fear not, for those of you who just loved the return to the G2 style and all the camp that accompanied it, we might just have a little something else featuring this “cast” for you down the road. I, Grimlock, would be scandalized if we didn’t!

We will still be putting up a 3 page preview this Thursday, April 3rd. This though is no joke…We are very pleased to announce that Don Figueroa is the artist behind this years book, returning to Transformers for this special endeavor!
