Operation: The One That Got Away

One of the returning guests to TFNation 2018 is currently only involved in Transformers by the series of variant covers for ongoing IDW Publishing comics series Transformers: Lost Light, but Nick Roche still holds a dear place in the fandom since his noteworthy debut on Spotlight: Shockwave (as artist) and Spotlight: Kup (as artist and writer).

Another of the original Transmasters UK fan community members, during the era of early Marvel comics, Roche has collaborated with writer James Roberts (also attending the TFNation) on fan-favourite Last Stand of the Wreckers, and took it solo, with Josh Burcham on colours, on its moving sequel - Sins of the Wreckers.

Since then, Roche has been seen mostly outside of the printed realm of Transformers comics, working as co-creator and artist on one-shots Monster Motors and Monster Motors: The Curse of Minivan Helsing (with Brian Lynch), and interior artist on Marvel’s Revolutionary War, Revolutionary War: Death’s Head II, New Warriors, and most recently Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (with Jody Houser). He also regularly contributes cover art to Marvel and IDW comics, including the likes of Clue, Deadpool vs The Punisher, Doctor Who, Robotech, TMNT, and more.
