VALENT WANG AND DON FIGUEROA ANNOUNCE MECHA WORKSHOP – COMIC BOOK AND FIGURE TIE-IN
Valent Wang, along with famed TRANSFORMERS comic book artist Don Figueroa (Dreamwave’s Transformers: The War Within, IDW Publishing’s Transformers On-Going) have announced the formation of a new company, Mecha Workshop, which features an online comic as well as a collectable action figure line featuring customizable mech-figures that convert and have alternate modes!
The free-to-view online comic will be written by Dan Taylor (former editor IDW Publishing) and drawn by acclaimed artist Don Figueroa. The comic will showcase the unique universe of Mecha Workshop and develop a full back-story and current on-going story of heroes and villains! Lettering for the comic will be done by Thomas Mauer.
Celebrity artists Enrico Galli and Luca Zampriolo are also on board for this project. While both will be behind illustrations, the colors, graphics, and visual effects will be handled by Enrico Galli and Luca Zampriolo will be doing the sculpting.
This all new toy-line will premiere with the Infantry Unit Mech figure, who is a fit for a diverse range of combat situations!
