Iacon Independent, the Auto Assembly 2012 convention exclusive comic is shaping up to be something rather special. Although the project was put together at the last minute, it certainly hasn’t looked or felt like it with a collection of short stories from a range of writers and artists with something for everyone.
It is a full-length comic with 22 pages of strips – from single pagers inspired by the Mosaic series, to an 8 page epic and this is the focus of today’s preview… “Promise of Peace” is a G1 story where Sureshot and Misfire find themselves as captives. But their only way to escape detention, is to try and work together… The story has been written by Bruce Bridges with artwork by Jimmy Brogan.
The comic is only available at Auto Assembly 2012 so to get your hands on a copy you’re going to have to book at ticket for the event or order one of our Non-Attendee Packs. Don’t forget, you’ll also be able to get hold of our other convention exclusive, the Marlboor Kitbash Upgrade Kit for Generations Wheeljack by attending the convention or ordering a Non-Attendee Pack so there’s a double incentive to book if the guests and the convention itself weren’t reason enough!
As for the comic itself, we have very limited advertising space available in the comic for any interested companies and we are already talking to companies wanting to book pages. The comic will have a print run of 1,000 copies and will be distributed to fans attending the convention from all over the world. If you are interested in promoting your business, website, event or anything else, please get in touch!
Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe’s largest Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 3rd – 5th August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.
