TFNation 2020 confirms the attendance of Transformers writer, archivist, historian, and super-fan Jim Sorenson!
Sorenson’s main attraction and focus this year will be his latest book: Transformers: A Visual History, with VIZ Media. This new art book – a 408 page celebration of 35 years of Transformers history, across all platforms, as we teased during our 2019 event – is meant to be the most comprehensive compilation of Transformers artwork ever assembled, featuring rare and iconic imagery pulled directly from Hasbro’s archives!
Sorenson joins an all-star roster of guests including Transformers (2019) series author Brian Ruckley, artist Kei Zama, Nick Roche (writer and artist), John-Paul Bove (writer, artist, and colorist), Sumalee Montano (Transformers Prime Arcee’s voice), the legendary Peter Cullen (voice of Optimus Prime), Sarah Stone (IDW’s first Transformers series artist), Beth McGuire-Smith, Anna Malkova (artists for IDW’s Transformers (2019) comics), Jack Lawrence (Transformers: Lost Light artist), James Roberts (Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye and Lost Light writer), Lee Sullivan (original artist from the days of Marvel’s UK Transformers run), & Tania Gunadi (voice actor for Bulkhead’s best buddy Miko Nakadai) at Europe’s largest Transformers convention. Scheduled for August 14-16, 2020, the convention happens at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole and updated information about Ticket Release Day on February 15th, 2020 is available here.
