I’ve been working in the comic/artwork/publishing industry for over 10 years now and have been lucky enough to be involved in a plethora of great comic book series and projects, including Transformers, Street Fighter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mega Man, WWE Wrestling, Spider-man, Batman and many others. While primarily working on the project management/editorial side, I’ve tried my hand at everything from colouring, inking and lettering to graphic design and even some occasional illustration work.

I’m currently the Managing Editor for Udon Entertainment’s publishing division, and also do freelance work on a variety of different projects.

Lil Formers is a parody comic strip created, written, drawn, inked and coloured by me, Matt Moylan. It started off poking fun at all aspects of Hasbro’s Transformers mega-property (hence the ‘Formers’ in the title). Strips #1 to 100 are all TF-centric, but with Strip #101 onward, I expanded the scope to cover all geeky, pop culture properties. So cartoons, comics, toys, video games….it’s all fair game. I haven’t updated the actual strips in a  while but still continue to draw when i have the time.

As a comic strip, Lil Formers started out as just a piece of fan art I drew of the Transformes character Shockwave. I was really just taking a shot at drawing a Transformer for the first time, and since all I can draw half-decently is the cutesy “chibi”-style (just an amateur artist here guys!) that’s the style I went for. Well, Shockwave seemed a hit with TF forum posters, and after a few follow up strips it turned into a series. Yay!

Lil Formers has been featured in the Official Transformers Collector’s Club Magazine, in IDW’s Transformers comic books, in Cereal Geek Magazine, and on top Transformers news site TFW2005.com.
