Operation: Simon Furman to attend TFNation 2017

For the last three decades, Simon Furman has been one of, if not THE most significant contributors to Transformers lore. Be it comics, television, movies, or games, Simon's influence is still being felt today. From his direct involvement with publications and interactive media, to the ongoing comic stories which have grown out of the rich continuity he pioneered at IDW, Simon's power is beyond measure.

Probably of most current significance to fans, Simon is involved in The Definitive Transformers Generation One Collection from Hachette, crafting the most comprehensive collection of Transformers fiction to date and, with the help of fellow TFNation guest John-Paul Bove, making it look better than ever.

Fans old and new of the Marvel-era material will not want to miss the chance to see both Simon Furman and fellow guest Bob Budiansky, essentially the fathers of Transformers as we know it, at their first dedicated UK convention together!

Simon's body of work outside of Transformers is almost as vast as a predatory bird, with varied comics titles such as Scream, Alpha Flight, What If...?, Thundercats, Doctor Who and much more, and television projects like Dan Dare, Matt Hatter Chronicals, and X-Men Evolution, which also starred fellow Beast Wars co-worker and TFNation guest Venus Terzo as Jean Grey.

Not content to stop there, Simon has collaborated with Transformers legend Geoff Senior to create the cult Brit-classic Dragon's Claws, recent internet sensation To The Death, and of course, our beloved Freelance Peace-Keeper; Death's Head! It never ends!!

Simon's current adventures are detailed on his blog over at: and is well worth following!
