IDW Publishing has sent over a press release for their upcoming Transformers Regeneration #81 comic, due out in July.

Writer Simon Furman and legendary TRANSFORMERS artist Andrew Wildman are back to their original roots with all-new stories, beginning with the free TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5. Starting after 1991’s TRANSFORMERS #80 comic epic conclusion, the free issue picks up as OPTIMUS PRIME watches over a CYBERTRON that hasn't faced MEGATRON for decades. But that peace shudders to an end and dives headlong into July's new series. “The original TRANSFORMERS saga is back—with a vengeance!” exclaimed Furman, “‘epic’ doesn’t cover it!”

TRANSFORMERS: REGENRATION ONE #81 comic will feature many fan-favorite Generation One TRANSFORMERS characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, GRIMLOCK, KUP, HOT ROD, ULTRA MAGNUS and more. “Its always nice to complete unfinished business, even after 20 years,” said Wildman.

“TRANSFORMERS: REGENRATION ONE comic is an important book to TRANSFORMERS fans,” IDW Senior Editor John Barber commented, “and expectations are high. Fortunately Simon, Andrew, and Stephen have only gotten better since the last issue!”

TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE #80.5 (Free, 32 pages; full color) will be available on May 5, 2012 as part of Free Comic Book Day.

Yes! I cannot wait for this to hit shelves. Awesomely excited!

I enjoy the current IDW runs, and I am surprised that I am. I had my doubts about their ongoings, but so far, so good.

But this... Is awesome. Been looking forward to Furman taking the reigns since the original announcement. I picked up the original run as a kid, and every month I just couldn't wait for the new issue to hit. Many years later, I feel that very same excitement knowing Furman and Wildman are back. I have missed those storylines and I am looking forward to Regeneration One!

I can't wait. Though that cover is hilarious, unintentionally. It looks like Megs is sitting on a toilet, and is asking Soundwave why it took him this long to get the toilet paper.
