Legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman shared more creative process insights with SYFY WIRE about the first issue of Transformers ’84: Secrets and Lies, originally included in our April solicitations coverage and now set for July release.
“The attack on Stanix is also referenced by Optimus Prime in Transformers ’84 #0, dovetailing the narratives somewhat. Ratbat made his U.S. comic book debut in TF US #27, which established his role (on Cybertron) as the Decepticons’ fuel auditor, and here he plays a bigger role in the unfolding events. By the way, Shockwave’s solution (on the following pages) provides another key twist to established/formative events in Transformers (Marvel) #1.”
