IDW has sent us a press release for their upcoming original graphic novel Transformers: Bumblebee – Win If You Dare. The book was first revealed here yesterday, thanks to an Amazon listing which went up. Though not part of IDW’s current continuity, Transformers: Bumblebee features an original standalone story very much like the upcoming Bumblebee: The Movie which serves as a spinoff movie to the Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie Series.
“The exciting thing about this book is that it really hits all the highs of TRANSFORMERS for fans new and old,” said IDW Associate Editor, David Mariotte. “It has action, adventure, racing and robots, but it also has a lot of heart and humor that comes through in this simultaneously retro and very modern package.”
“This story is just a ton of fun,” said Michael Kelly, head of publishing at Hasbro. “Bumblebee is the ultimate underdog, and everyone loves an underdog. IDW has done a fantastic job bringing this iconic character to life for a new generation of fans.”
