Comicosity sat down with John Barber and Fico Ossio to talk about Revolutionaries by IDW.
Aaron Long: Revolution merged the Hasbro properties into a shared universe, with Revolutionaries now spinning out of the event. What will readers be seeing in this series?
John Barber: Lots of fast-paced action and big world-building. The Revolutionaries team is made up of Mayday (who’s a G.I. Joe agent), Kup and Blackrock (who are Transformers), and Action Man (who’s English). So they’re already kinda all over the place to start with, but right off the bat they have to team up with Rom and the Micronauts to fight the Oktober Guard and the new Storm Shadow. Nothing’s off the table!
AL: Will the Revolutionaries be addressing a particular ongoing threat, or will they be a specialist team facing new challenges all the time?
JB: In issue one, they assemble because an ancient artifact called the Talisman suddenly mu-tates a bunch of people into Dire Wraith -like monsters. Everybody winds up in the same place for different reasons, and the pursuit of this Talisman—and, more importantly, its secrets—drives the team on all their different adventures. And the Talisman’s secrets will reveal a lot of… weird stuff about the planet Earth.
