Simon Furman is a name inextricably linked to Transformers, the 80s toy phenomenon.
He has written literally hundreds of stories about the war-torn ‘robots in disguise’, for Marvel Comics (US and UK), Dreamwave and most recently Transformers: Infiltration/Escalation, Beast Wars: The Gathering, Transformers: Stormbringer and Transformers: Spotlight for IDW Publishing.
His other comic book credits include Dragon’s Claws, Death’s Head, Alpha Flight, Turok, She-Hulk, Robocop and What If?
Editorially, Furman oversees Titan Books’ range of Transformers titles and their ‘Comics Creators’ series (which includes Comics Creators on X-Men and Writers on Comics Scriptwriting 2).
Furman’s recent/current writing work includes Terminator 2 — Infinity (for Dynamite), Ronan and Death’s Head 3.0 (both for Marvel), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — Fast Forward, A.T.O.M (the comic) and Wallace & Gromit. He is also the author of Transformers: The Ultimate Guide, a lavish twentieth anniversary hardcover, You Can Draw Transformers, Transformers: The Movie Guide and a Dr. Who audio adventure (‘The Axis of Insanity’).
