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 Interview with Transformers Editor John Barber; Robots in Disguise 2nd Year.


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.

Dan Gilvezan, who was recently one of the headliners at BotCon 2012 contacted us today to inform of us of some exciting news regarding his book "Bumblebee & Me: Life as a G1 Transformer." Dan is famous in Transformers circles for being the original voice of Bumblebee on the 1980's Transformers cartoon series that was produced by Sunbow.

Hi Ryan,

I hope this email finds you well and happy. I wanted to let you know that as of today, "Bumblebee & Me: Life as a G1 Transformer", as well as my novel, "Drowned in the Grenadine", are now both available in paperback in Great Britain via Amazon.uk and on the Continent through Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, and Amazon.es. This is the link to the book's amazon.uk page.

All books are being produced and shipped locally. No more heinously expensive shipping or outrageous prices via secondary-market retailers for our friends across the pond. This is important news for Trans Fans in Europe and the UK, so if you wouldn't mind putting up an announcement on the site I would truly appreciate it. ((You might also want to mention how much you enjoyed the book (you DID enjoy it, didn't you?) and encourage everyone, including folks in the US who haven't, to order a copy.))

Thanks, as always, for your support. Wishing you health, happiness and all good things.

Sincerely,
Dan
