James Roberts More Than Meets the Eye Ongoing Interview

tumblr_ma963l1z1m1qd9jlto1_500

The official Transformers Facebook page has posted an interesting interview with James Roberts, the writer of IDW’s More Than Meets the Eye ongoing. The interview covers James’ favorite plots and some of the things that he considered his biggest challenges from “year one” of More Than Meets the Eye including the characters James loves writing – no surprise that Swerve is in there – and also the story that James considers to be his personal best.

There’s also a tease on what we might expect coming up in the next few months with, as James Roberts puts it, “a Marvel UK style epic” concluding in issue #16, where “you may be saying goodbye to some characters and hello to others.” He also teases that this epic should tie off some dangling threads from the first 12 issues.

    The official Transformers FB page has an interview up with James Roberts, about the recently released issue 12 and beyond.

    There's spoilers in here, so be warned. As well as teases including that we're getting a Marvel UK-style epic down the road.

    I don't know why you say 'goodbye'; I say 'hello'.

    Does anyone have a bet as to who the 'bot with the changed fate in #15 is?

    Well, this'll be interesting.

    Anyone else think that Chromedome is the Issue #15 guy?

    That's an interesting thought. Going by the events of this issue and the #14 Solicitation, Chromedome will be partially responsible for letting Overlord loose and later he's on the Necrobot's list, so it sounds like his fate is pretty much set - but Roberts is very good at confounding expectations. Well, mine at least.

    I've been looking for an old Roberts interview where he listed some characters who had taken on a life of their own, but I can't seem to find it. The only one I remember is Swerve.
    Edit: Found it. There only was Swerve. Still, hardly conclusive evidence. Plus, I've never been right about MTMTE's plot twists before.

    All good thing most come to a end.

    The only characters that should be untouchable are Ultra Magnus, Rodimus, and Ratchet. Otherwise, it's fair game. I bet they pick up Guzzle and Impactor somewhere down the line.

    Hmm. No real important questions asked in this interview. I think I'll go to a convention and personally ask Roberts why he is not using more of the original '84 line up.
