Out This Week! Dragons Vol.4: The Stowaway by Simon Furman and Iwan Nazif!

HICCUP VS. HROAR!

The Dragons Training Academy gets a new student – a handsome, brave young man named Hroar! It seems that Hroar has stowed away on one of Berk’s ships to visit Berk and check out the dragons. And as Hroar becomes more and more popular by impressing Hiccup’s friends (especially Astrid), Hiccup grows increasingly suspicious of him…

Remember, kids...

Simon Furman didn’t want to include Arcee or any female TFs in the fan-aimed comics, unless he could come up with some kind of “justification” for their existence.

Michael Bay just threw female TFs into the mass-market worldwide sequel to a kajillion-dollar-profit movie with no explanation whatsoever.

Think that one over for a bit.

Fans of Transformers in its various incarnations are probably aware of the work of writer Simon Furman. If they’re particularly history-conscious, they might also be aware of the work of artist Derek Yaniger, who drew portions of Marvel’s Transformers: Generation 2 comic with incredible style.

But. Didja know the two of them worked on another property together?

In 1992, Furman and Yaniger produced the first issue of Marvel’s Toxic Crusaders comic, a tie-in to the short-lived franchise of the same name. The book was one of Furman’s rare stabs at feature-length humor, and the results - if not sidesplitting - come off much better than his roughly contemporary work on The Sensational She-Hulk, where he never seemed quite comfortable handling the lead character. Yaniger’s art, meanwhile, feels more evocative of Evan Dorkin here than his Transformers material, although I think this cartooning style just might have been popular at the time.

Toxic Crusaders issue 1, “The Making of Toxie”. Part 2 of 3 (part 1 is here). More to come!
