A very insightful and spoilerish interview with John Barber about his work on Transformers: Robots in Disguise and the events leading up to issue #10 has been posted on Newsrama.com. Parallels can be drawn between the fictional political intrigue facing Cybertronians in the ongoing series and the impending US elections. Click HERE for the full article.

Newsrama.com wrote:After the epic “Death of Optimus Prime” arc in IDW’s Transformers comics last year, the future of these shape-shifting robots was at a cross-roads. While Rodimus and a band of fellow Autobots took to the spaceways to find the fabled first Cybertronians, Bumblebee took on the tumultuous role of leader of Cybertron and set out to unify the long-fractured factions of Transformers, both Autobot, Decepticon and even non-aligned Transformers. This story is chronicled in the new series Transformers: Robots In Disguise which launched at the beginning of the year, and truly lives up the franchise’s “more than meets the eye” slogan (despite that actually being the title of the sister series) with politics entering the fray.

And now with Transformers: Robots In Disguise nearing the one year mark and the real-life political scene in the United States entering its apex, Newsarama spoke with writer (and long-time Transformers editor) John Barber about the political struggles on Cybertron, the disappearance of Ironhide, and the mysterious mind-control going on in the jungles of Cybertron.

Absolutely. Several ongoing series and special projects like Mars Attacks Cybertron make me happy.

Maybe I'll wait for a large portion to be produced, and then just buy an omnibus of the RID and/or MTMTE series, if it gets made. This series seems worth it.
