Today is proving to be a good day for sharing interviews with IDW talent, as Transformers writer Brian Ruckley directs our attention to his recent talk with the Westfield Comics Blog.
Westfield: What can readers look forward to in the series?
Ruckley: Peace and harmony! Not really. Although we are going back in time, building from the ground up if you like. We’re starting the story back before the Transformers robots are at war with each other, and in most ways Cybertron is actually a peaceful, harmonious, prosperous place, full of life and variety. Bit by bit, we’ll reveal some of the cracks beneath the surface – starting with the first murder the planet’s seen in a crazy long time. How you go from that to a galaxy-spanning war, how it feeds into existing tensions and forces some choices, both good and bad, onto some pretty well-known characters – that’s where we’re heading. With a few surprises along the way, hopefully.
Check out the entire interview for yourself, remember to pre-order the first two issues at your preferred local comic shop and then join in the discussion on the 2005 boards! [Cover #4 A credits: writer Brian Ruckley, artists Angel Hernandez & Ron Joseph, cover artist Sara Pitre-Durocher]
