Bob Budiansky

Bob Budiansky is an American comic book writer, editor, and penciller, best known for his work on Marvel‘s Transformers comic. He also created the Marvel character Sleepwalker and wrote all 33 issues of that comic.

[edit] Transformers

Budiansky is considered one of the "fathers" of Transformers lore, being part of the birth of the line of both toys and comics, responsible for much of the writing of the original Marvel Transformer comic. Budiansky went on to become a legend among Transformers fans, having conceived the names of most of the original, most iconic Transformers, including Decepticon leader Megatron, Autobot medic Ratchet, and Decepticon Ravage.[citation needed] He also wrote the vast majority of the descriptive "tech spec" biographies printed on the Transformers toy packages that Hasbro produced in the 1980‘s, giving each figure unique personality quirks.

After a long hiatus from the Transformers mythos, Budiansky scripted a new adaptation of the original 1986 The Transformers: The Movie for IDW Publishing in honor of the film‘s 20th anniversary.
