People who have watched the interviews on Rhino's 2002 DVD release of the G1 Transformers 2.1 box set, may remember voice actor Neil Kaplan talking about screwing around during the recording sessions of Transformers: Robots In Disguise, who voiced Optimus Prime on the series, and turn the character into Optimoose Prime, by speaking the dialogue of Optimus Prime with the voice of classic cartoon character Bullwinkle.

In the years since the interview, Neil Kaplan has often been asked about bringing Optimoose to life. Through the magic of the internet, that day has come. The writer/voice actor, who is currently also involved with the graphic novel I, of the Wolf, has opened a facebook group named All Hail Optimoose!, where the future adventures of the Transformers spoof will be brought to life.

Aside from Kaplan's writing, the artwork for the stories will be provided by acclaimed Welsh artist Simon Williams. Williams has worked on the UK Transformers: Armada comics and the current UK Transformers Movie comics as well as on IDW's Beast Wars Source book.

The following background info has been taken directly from the facebook group page.


"By the way, in the real world his sidekick is William "Bitter" Beaver. Yes, he IS a beaver and YES he is very, very bitter. His saying is "DAM IT!"

In "Life with Optimoose" he and Bitter live in our world. They are both actors, though Optimoose is FAR more successful and beloved. Which of course angers Bitter, as Optimoose started as a bit player on "The Beaver Show." In subsequent years the show was also called "Beaver and Friends", "Beaver and Moose Comedy Hour", "Optimoose and Billy Beaver Show" and finally "Optimoose and Friends."

There agent is Super Agent SIMON WILLIAMS a bit of a snooty priss from the UK. He busts his hump for "Opti" and is, frankly the textbook agent. On the other hand, Simon is more of a "booker" for Bitter. Simon will take the calls for Bitter, but he won't make them.

Bitter - though working - plays bit parts. He is one of the "go to" guys for terrorists, victims, liquor store cashiers. In other words... Bitter is treated just like most other minority actors. In fact, when "A Moose and a Beaver Walk Into a Bar: The Motion Picture" was written by Hollywood Legends Kurtzman and Orci, the role of Beaver was originally written with George Clooney in mind.

In "Optimoose Chronicles" and "The Adventures of Optimoose" things are a LITTLE different. These two "titles" take place in the Optiverse, where ANYTHING is possible.

Optimoose is an intergalactic SuperAgent.

Bitter, is his stumpy sidekick.

Simon? Well, he is Q & M, combined! He gives Optimoose his assignments, but he also designs all of his cool gadgets, weapons and transformations. In the Optiverse, Optimoose can transform into ANYTHING metallic. The one teeny tiny caviot is, the moose head will ALWAYS be there.

Their nemesis???

It's Fanboy/Skele-Fat.

In the real world, fanboy is that always impossible to please perfectionist that claims to be a fan, right before ripping someone or something to shreds. Although he claims to be Optimoose's BIGGEST fan, his goal is to get the world to see that Optimoose is not an ordinary actor.

In the Optiverse... he is Skele-Fat. He is a blob of a man that wears tights and a purple leather straps he hides his face under a skelton mask which barely hides his face, let alone his triple chins. His ego is HUGE and yet, he not only thinks he looks good, but will maim, torture and kill anyone that points out how truly ridiculous he looks.

Earlier this year, we reported that IDW Publishing, the company that currently holds the publishing rights to the Transformers license claimed fourth position in the competitive Comics market.

Thanks to RyallTime, the blog of IDW's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall, IDW have remained in the 4th position in the comic book industry:

MARVEL COMICS 39.36% 44.83%
DC COMICS 31.55% 32.96%
DARK HORSE COMICS 5.40% 3.33%
IDW PUBLISHING 3.21% 3.27%
IMAGE COMICS 2.81% 3.04%


The first percentage is based on dollars, with the second percentage relates to units sold.

Good news for both IDW Publishing and the Transformer fandom in general.

“THE PILGRIM” DEBUTS ON COMICMIX.COM – GRAPHIC NOVEL BY MARK RYAN & MIKE GRELL IS BASED ON TRUE PARANORMAL EVENTS OF WORLD WAR II


Los Angeles, CA – November 18, 2008: The long-awaited graphic novel, “The Pilgrim,” by veteran comic creators Mike Grell (Sable, Green Arrow, Ironman) and Mark Ryan (“Transformers,” “The Prestige”), debuted on ComicMix.com this week. The weekly episodic graphic novel is based on true accounts of modern paranormal espionage techniques first used during World War II. Episode one of “The Pilgrim” is available exclusively for free and in color at ComicMix.com. “The Pilgrim” is an adult-format novel that will appeal to fans of dark comics, sci-fi and horror.

Ryan originally wrote “The Pilgrim” as a screen play based on the use of psychics and occultists during World War II by Allied forces to influence the minds and strategies of the Nazi leadership, which helped save Britain from invasion. The graphic novel will intertwine historical characters with modern paranormal capabilities used in current intelligence-gathering operations to infiltrate and interdict hostile organizations and governments. Grell sets the tone for the dark storyline with his brilliantly descriptive and gritty illustration.

“The story behind Colonel Kim Seymour and 'The Pilgrim' and has been living in my head for many years, so it's wonderful to see it finally brought to life,” says Mark Ryan. “The real reward for me is to see this brilliantly accomplished by Mike Grell. He truly is the best in the business and knows how to illustrate the complexity and brutality of modern Special Forces intelligence operations in graphic and compelling detail.”

Ryan and Grell reunited with Mike Gold, one of the founders of ComicMix and former senior editor for DC Comics to host “The Pilgrim.” The trio originally teamed in 1991 to develop the 50th Anniversary edition of the comic-book “Green Arrow” for DC Comics.

ComicMix.com launched in September 2007 as a destination for everyone who loves comics, TV shows, movies, games and pop culture. The site, which also offers news and interviews, will develop additional multimedia content with Ryan and Grell including blogs and podcasts.
