Allow us to take a detour from comics for our next announcement, as TFNation 2020 is proud to present: Transformers writer, archivist, historian, and super-fan Jim Sorenson!

Sorenson's main attraction and focus this year will be his latest book: Transformers: A Visual History, with VIZ Media. This new art book - a 408 page celebration of 35 years of Transformers history, across all platforms, as we teased during our 2019 event - is meant to be the most comprehensive compilation of Transformers artwork ever assembled, featuring rare and iconic imagery pulled directly from Hasbro’s archives!

You know it's bound to be an excellent text, as Sorenson has compiled, collated, archived and brought together for major publications behind the scenes work on shows like the original Transformers cartoon, the Animated series, Beast Wars, and Transformers: Prime. He has contributed to fan fiction in the form of stories, articles, and comics for the Collectors' Club, and was behind the 'Ask Vector Prime' series on social media.
