Operation: Putting the U in Colourist

With the new year in full swing, the TFNation team is happy to announce another returning guest to our ever-expanding roster: comics colourist and writer John-Paul Bove!

Known to many as JP, he is currently recolouring classic Marvel UK stories for Hachette’s Transformers: The Definitive Generation One Collection, and has been the main colour artist for IDW Publishing’s Transformers: ReGeneration One – the continuation of the original Marvel US series – plus the Drift: Empire of Stone mini-series, several BotCon / FunPub comics, and an entire collection of cover work with several artists in the Transformers world for IDW. Outside of Transformers, his visual work can be found on titles such as G.I. Joe, Dr Who, Action Man, and Judge Dredd, while his writing includes the BotCon 2016 ‘Dawn of the Predacus’ comic, Panini’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and creator-owned horror one-shot UnEarth.
