IDW Announces “Bumblebee – Win If You Dare” Graphic Novel for Fall
After popping up unannounced on Amazon yesterday, Transformers: Bumblebee – Win If You Dare has been, well, announced! The standalone graphic novel seems to promise to be a stylish and unique piece very different from the IDW main line comics, designed to be accessible to new and younger fans. Read on for the full press release.
Amazon.com listed the item recently, including the cover art image and a synopsis (both reproduced in the press release below.) The new press release expands a bit on the rationale behind the book and its intended appeal; though it’s clearly tapping into some brand synergy with the upcoming film, the book seems to be an independent, original story that just happens to also focus on a Volkswagen Beetle Bumblebee in the 1980s. With a writing team new to IDW Transformers, it also seems independent of the main IDW Transformers continuity, intended as a self-contained story easy for younger fans to break into.
Thanks to Allspark user ZacWilliam1 for sharing the Amazon listing with us. You can join the discussion in the book’s own thread on the Allspark Forums or come talk us up in realtime on our Discord server. See the full press release below.
