Auto Assembly 2012 Convention Comic Preview – Day 1

Youth Of Experience

As you know, we are producing a convention exclusive comic for Auto Assembly 2012 that will be included in all of the goodie bags that we will be giving away at the event. These bags will be packed with free gifts to make sure that no-one leaves the convention empty-handed, whether you come along with much spending money or not.

The comic, Iacon Independent, will feature work from a range of talented writers and artists and will feature 22 pages of short stories and single page strips spanning G1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines and Transformers: Animated and will have something for everyone and will feature a stunning cover illustrated by Marvel G1 artist Jeff Anderson.

We can now reveal the first teaser image from the comic below taken from the story “Youth of Experience”. Set during “The War Within”, it sees Hot Rod and Kup team up for the first time. It is written by Peter Williams featuring art by Rui Onishi, colours by Kal Kyle and letters by Andy Turnbull.
