Greg Weisman writing episodes for Transformers Prime and Rescue Bots


Here is some good news – in an interview with World’s Finest, writer Greg Weisman mentions he has done some work, freelance, writing for the current incarnations of Transformers, Transformers Prime (Beast Hunters we assume) and Rescue Bots. For those not familiar with Greg Weisman, he is an expert at crafting intricate stories filled with characterization and clever twists. You might have seen some of his work in Gargoyles, the Spectacular Spider-Man or Young Justice.

These will most likely be one-shot episodes given his freelance role in the series, but if they are half as awesome as an episode of any of those three series we are in for a treat.

Check out the full interview over at World’s Finest.

    The World's Finest - Young Justice

    Greg Weisman recently had an interview with Worlds' Finest. The focus is on Young Justice, but the end has this little tidbit:

    WF: And where can we expect to see your work next?

    GW: I've written a few freelance episodes for series including Kaijudo, Transformers Prime, Rescue Bots, Beware the Batman and Octonauts. But the main thing keeping me busy these days is a series of novels I'm working on. The first, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, comes out on December 3rd, 2013 and is already available for pre-order on Amazon and etc.

    And now we know why Prime is getting cancelled.

    Rescue Bots is next on the grim reaper list too.

    Truly, he is the Joss Whedon of animation, at least in terms of his shows all getting canned.

    At least they tend to be good while they last.

    YAY! He wrote for Rescue Bots. MEANWHILE.... Prime's suckiness even affected Marty Isenberg, so yeah, don't have my hopes up high for TFP.

    I don't know why, but I found this quite amusing

    Still, freelance or not, if an episode of Prime is half as good as his work on Gargoyles or Young Justice, we are in for a treat.

    A very good choice of writer. He's like a freelance Bruce Timm/Paul Dini.

    Always wanted to see him write for Transformers. He's a great writer.
