Given the recent announcements, both at BotCon and in the Director's Cut of Transformers Spotlight: Drift of the new mini-series on the ex-Decepticon-turned-Autobot-with-Spectralist/scapegoat - we decided to collect all known news so far and keep a single thread (as for Transformers: Windblade) for the upcoming Empire of Stone, with Shane McCarthy and Guido Guidi back in the pilot's seat! Check out below a couple of snippets from the DC Drift and McCarthy's own blog!

Shane McCarthy: The mini kicks off after Drift was booted from the Lost Light and deals with what he’s been doing since then. It’s been a lot of fun because I’m incorporating the elements James brought to his character in the ongoing bookwhile also bringing the focus back towards his internal struggles with what the war did to him and what it meant to switch sides.

I’m including some great villains—seriously, they’re so much fun, and I’ve also brought in Ratchet. I loved the chemistry James brought to those two so, as you know, I lobbied hard to be able to use Ratchet in this. There’s rogue Decepticons, a hidden army, and a ton of action. Plus a good hard look at who Drift is underneath his cavalier exterior.

Guido Guidi: Drift, like a wandering samurai... in space! After leaving the Lost Light, he’s been pretty much on his own, and guess what—the universe is still full of bad guys... and some unexpected friends.


I’m currently sitting in a hotel in Stockholm working on the script for Drift: Empire of Stone #3. I’m loving the hell out of writing this and wanted to share some random thoughts…

I’ve seen a lot of tweeting and retweeting about the series on Twitter and I’m really thankful for all of the excitement out there. John (Transformers editor) tells me the reaction at Botcon to the series announcement was big and that’s really exciting to hear. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks.

The biggest kick in all of this is working with Guido again. The Gui’s art is brilliant but partnering up with him again is bringing me back to the amazing AHM days.

It dawned on me that this is the first time I’ve been able to write Drift as I originally imagined him to be. He spent much of his time in the background of AHM and then the Spotlight and the mini series that followed focused on Drift in the past, a Drift that was in a lot of turmoil. Not to suggest he still isn’t but he wasn’t the cavalier, good humoured Autobot I originally conceived him to be yet. His good humour and often present smile certainly hides a lot of inner pain but in those flashbacks the pain was all on the surface. It’s three issues in so far and Drift is definitely a guy I’m enjoying hanging out with. And let it be known, Drift’s time on the Lost Light definitely plays into the series.
With the Drift Spotlight Director’s Cut out it’s been revealed that Ratchet is playing a big part in this and THAT’S been a hoot. I was over the moon when John gave me the go ahead to be able to use him.

John is a champion and has been great to work with. I’ve been lucky with getting to work with great editors during my career and John’s no different.

Lastly, a big shout out to “Sprite” for her help wayyyyy back when I was formulating all this. It’s good to have a Transformer expert’s brain to pick.

Anyway, back to the script and thank you for all the support out there!

Mere hours after the official announcement of the IDW Publishing Transformers: Punishment motion comic on Madefire, here at Seibertron.com we are able to present you with the third comics review of the week, courtesy of the collaboration between Mkall (words) and ScoutBumblebee (images) - check it out below!

I’d like to start this review off by saying that I typically do not get the premise behind motion comics. To me, they often feel like someone thought of a good cartoon but didn’t have the resources to do it properly. Most of them that I’ve seen aren’t much better than comic art manipulated with Adobe Flash Studio. I’m sure that there are better examples out there, but I have not exposed myself to them.

IDW’s foray into this medium with Transformers: Punishment, while not dissuading me completely of my notions of motion comics, shows me that there is a way to do it better. It’s far from perfect, but I’ll touch on that later.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Punishment Motion Comic Review


Transformers: Punishment is written by John Barber and drawn by Livio Ramondelli. Two powerhouses in their respective fields come together to make this book look as nice as it reads. Optimus Prime returns to Cybertron because for whatever reason, Galvatron on Earth just doesn’t seem like that big a deal to him? He arrives and immediately decides his original reason to visit isn’t as important as some murdered d-list Decepticons. He sets out to find the killer in a style that feels very familiar to MTMTE’s Shadowplay series; where the hero (Optimus, in case it wasn’t clear) spends several issues chasing a criminal, and lots of collateral damage happens en route.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Punishment Motion Comic Review


The feel of this story captures very succinctly the atmosphere that IDW’S Robots In Disguise series has been trying to capture; that everyone is trying to come to terms with what they did during The War. There is a lot of Prime narration and introspective that puts a lot of this in context as we begin to see that the Autobots may not have been as heroic as 30 years of propaganda have lead us to believe.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Punishment Motion Comic Review


This story is led by Optimus as he investigates. This disappoints me as I was really looking forward to seeing more of Starscream, who in this story is actually a heroic character. There was no sneer to the voice that I imagined in my head as I read his lines. He is generally honest in his desire to see justice done.

There are other characters too. Slug and the Dinobots serve as the needed muscle and occasional foil for Optimus. Windblade is always in the background to counter Prime’s ‘millions of years of fighting has changed us’ mantras, which seem to occur once every issue. Sandstorm is the most curious addition to the story. Whereas the Dinobots are all too willing to fight and kill, Sandstorm does so because it’s all he ever knew. Prime confronts him and attempts to get him to change and move past what he did. Will he do so? I suppose that’s what was meant at the BotCon panel when it was stated that these events will reverberate in the main comic lines.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Punishment Motion Comic Review


The Decepticon presence in this book is minimal (unless you include cadavers). The Firecons appear more to stir the pot than anything else. I would’ve enjoyed seeing more cons as protagonists. Starscream is for all intents and purposes a good guy and Barricade only speaks when there’s exposition to deliver. This is certainly an all-Autobot tale. The overall story arc is nothing unique. It’s been told before in other stories wherever war and violence have affected cultures. The killer(s) didn’t surprise me, but they may surprise you if you are new to the IDW comics.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Punishment Motion Comic Review


Overall I liked the story, despite some distractions both artistic and technical. The writing is good, and the more open nature of this medium allowed the artwork to move the text along and a good speed. I wish this was a 6th issue to allow for more interaction between Optimus, Starscream, and Windblade. This was a fantastic opportunity for old vs new Autobot interaction but it was always cut short because there were more bodies to find.
The artwork in this was done knowing it was for a motion comic, and it shows. Sparks fly, laserbeams cut the air, fires burn with intensity and the lighting is dynamic. My main issue is that because it’s a motion comic, there is motion for the sake of it. Sometimes the impact of comic art is to show movement in a static frame. That’s because it relies on the reader’s imagination to fill in the details. Such impact is lost to me when there’s a tiny bit of motion and the impact isn’t as big as your mind is telling you it should be. The soundtrack gets disconcerting after a short time, especially when shifting between scenes there is no fade in/out. I like the inclusion of the sound effects, such as the transforming sound and the guns blasting away, but it’s lost in the often overpowering driving beat of the music.

I got this because it was free, and I would suggest the same to anyone who enjoys these comics. Personally though, I would’ve paid to get it in paper.

More comics news today from IDW Publishing! Check out below the press release for the Madefire powered motion comic Transformers: Punishment, mentioned at BotCon, written by John Barber and with art by Livio Ramondelli - and currently available only on the Madefire app for Windows 8. The story is apparently set slightly further than the current RID and Windblade run, so there may be a few spoilers ahead.

Madefire Expands To Windows 8 With Exclusive Transformers Motion Book Release

Five New Episodes Of Hasbro And IDW Publishing’s Transformers Are Now Available Exclusively Through The Madefire App On Windows 8



San Francisco, CA – June 25 2014 – In collaboration with Hasbro and IDW Publishing, Madefire, today announced that the five-issue Transformers: Punishment will be the newest additions to expand the Madefire Motion Book library with an exclusive Microsoft Windows 8 platform release. These exclusive stories based on Hasbro’s iconic Transformers brand, will be available on all of the latest Windows 8 devices for no cost, and will provide a unique reading experience designed and built specifically for the digital screen.

Transformers: Punishment is all-new original content developed within the current IDW Transformers universe with its debut as a Madefire Motion Book. The creative team behind the five-part series are Transformers comic fan-favorites, writer John Barber and artist Livio Ramondelli. Autobots and Decepticons come alive and battle it out as Motion Books -- the newest innovation in reading to come to Windows 8.

“It’s a thrill to see Optimus Prime spring into action,” said John Barber. “This is a hard-hitting action story, and Madefire’s Motion Books — including music and sound effects — deliver a powerful reading experience that makes you feel like you’re in the center of it all!”

"Windows devices are supported by a rich app ecosystem that offers a variety of quality apps that take advantage of the platform's unique features such as Live Tiles, snap and Bing Smart Search integration," said Todd Brix, general manager, Windows Apps and Store, Microsoft Corp. "The Madefire Motion Books app’s unique use of these features, paired with exclusive Transformers content for Windows users, really bring the app to life on the platform.”

Designed for reading on a screen, Madefire has built an end-to-end publishing platform called Motion Books -- a benchmark reading experience for mobile, tablet and web that immerses the reader in a sequential narrative with sound, motion, and depth. Today, Madefire Motion Books expands beyond the iOS and web-reading partner, social network and creative giant deviantART, and is available on any Windows 8 device operating system. Currently, Madefire Motion Books is a free Windows 8 and iOS app that delivers the most innovative reading experience for digital devices as it pioneers the next chapter in storytelling. It has been an iOS 5-star rated app since launch, and was awarded an App Store’s “Best of 2012”.

“A global entertainment, like Transformers comics coming alive through Motion Books exclusively written for the Windows 8 platform is one thing, but teaming up with the biggest OS in the world makes it a huge milestone,” stated Madefire CEO and Co-Founder Ben Wolstenholme, “Its about bringing stories to life on the devices we use everyday – period.”

O Captain! My Captain!
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
EVACUATION! Is it possible for a starship to object to its captain? That’s what the AUTOBOTS are asking MEGATRON as the Lost Light becomes the most dangerous place in the universe!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
Swerve, trusting the captain


Story

Everything is going amiss. Or missing. Or disappearing. On the Lost Light, that is, as we've seen so far since issue #28. And there's that coffin issue, a possible ghost, scheming and plotting and antipathies and Swerve, serving as a recap device on the first page. But that's not all going on, of course - and some things are being found, or found out.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
Dun dun duuuuunn


At the same time, six months previously, the Megatron trial is coming to an end, though not necessarily as we saw it going in the first place, as some rogue 'loyal' Decepticons attempt to 'rescue' the defendant in the middle of the Luna 2 arena. And the beginning of some trialling (heh) changes in the legal process.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
Clean up the bodies


Now, the end of the trial left me with mixed feelings: on the one hand, James Roberts' Megatron gains some truly great character work, but on the other, it felt, as I have mentioned before for other arcs, as if things were hurried on the lead into the rest of the plots and narratives (though not as much as the Overlord ending). On the third hand, however, so many characters are explored, from Rodimus to First Aid, to Getaway, Tailgate and even Riptide and Nautica, with a bit more of Optimus and Prowl, too. And it counterbalances it all.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
There are feels emotions


Overall, then, while the 'conclusion' of the trial, on its surface, left me wondering, everything else around it makes the entire issue so developed and multifaceted that I can look over that small step I was hoping for in Megatron's story (see previous reviews for more on this, too).

Art

I will not gush on Alex Milne's artwork, but there is a lot to say about how the line- and panel-work in the issue really fits the story being told, with some excellent white-out frames, several massive spreads and splashes, and brilliant facial expressions with some manga-esque influences throughout the entire, beautiful book. And it all graces both the trial and the Lost Light scenes, equally and consistently.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
Picture, words, worth


And the colours. The colours. We get to see some astonishing space-scapes from Joana Lafuente, and some fantastic lighting complementing the tone and layout of the artwork and panels, with some truly powerful dark/light contrasts for emotional moments. In addition, Tom B. Long's lettering is used to enhance only the moments that really need it, but really shines in the arena fight and scattered through the final act.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
...


There is a ridiculous number of covers, and yes, they're all excellent. From the Milne/Lafuente main one to Nick Roche and Josh Burcham's subscription, to the thumbnailed Guido Guidi and John-Paul Bove magnificent Megatron (fitting, really) and the convention exclusive My Little Pony crossover by Tony Fleecs. Whew.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

I have an issue with Roberts' endings, clearly, as I didn't think this packed the punch it could've - regarding Megatron's sentence and closing remarks, at least. But everything else really, really makes up for it, from a twist early on, to the characterisation of the big bad bot, to the development of the main plotline and the creation of more bonds, some of which potentially destructive for established others.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #30 Review
I.. um.. I.. well


And it all looks absolutely superb, from lines to panels to colours to letters to expressions to space - oh the space - and it has twists, plots, endings, beginnings, the RodPod, covers, Swerve's introdump/recap and 'bomps'. Not only that: it looks like, as of the next issue, we will return to early MTMTE, too - space horror. Grab the popcorn and/or your leg.

Twisted Plot
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
THE FATE OF CYBERTRON! WINDBLADE learns more about the new face of CYBERTRON—and lesson number one is: never underestimate STARSCREAM! She’s trapped in a no-win situation—but what is the scheming DECEPTICON really after, and how far will he go to keep WINDBLADE out of his way?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
Hum, far..?


Story

We left Cybertron last month as Windblade, Chromia, the Maccadam's crew - the jolly jumble of Blurr, Snarl, Waspinator, Tankor and Tankor - and reporters Longtooth and Circuit entered the lower levels of Metroplex, as the Terrorcons prepared to pounce on the cast, and the battle was on the very brink of commencing.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
On the edge, even


The fight sequence that ensues, at the opening of the issue, is gloriously long with good narration and exposition (and world building, too) at just the right pacing from Mairghread Scott to not be either boring nor too much of a punch fest. And also serves its function as the first of many minor twists in the story of the mini-series so far, before some major changes towards the end. None of which I'll show.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
Have some air-fighting


Not only does the pacing work, with the captions recapping the story so far from Windblade's view, the dialogue aiding the progression of the story and some great exchanges in the aftermath of the fight, there's space for a little humour (without too much tonal discordance), and some very very dark moments during and after.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
Comedy gold


Starscream has some very nice traits in the issue, Rattrap is a little stinker, Windblade shines through her fighting skills, as does Chromia, the story goes in multiple directions at once, then returns to itself as everything changes - and we even get a new type of character introduced. Not a character, a type.

Art

The artwork, of course, makes my appreciation of the issue rise even further, with Sarah Stone's excellent panel work, returning to Longtooth's head camera (as in, his head is a camera) device and commentary on the technique. Combined with some brilliant facial expressions, the result is an issue of dynamic, clear fight sequences and truly terrifying moments later on.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
'Is this thing on?'


Moments which are expertly enhanced by Stone's use of colour and shading, and some great contrasts in how the light, be it fire, glow or else, reflects on and refracts off different Cybertronian surfaces and bodies. Add in some subtle touches in sound effects and lettering by Chris Mowry, and we get a truly thrilling addition to the mini-series.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
See? Stinker. And creep.


Additionally, not to forget, the covers. Stone's amazing 'crying' Windblade has made the rounds many times now, but Alex Milne and Joana Lafuente (thumbnail) create an impressive valiant rendition of the character, too. And continuing the 30th Anniversary celebratory series, Guido Guidi and John-Paul Bove recreate a victorious Stascream over Megatron for the retail incentive!

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Well. I mean, well. Scott had me convinced that the story would be doing certain things, and then took it wildly away, only to drag it back and split it again and end it on a note that appeared from nowhere - but could still make sense. In the next issue. Because of course there's a cliffhanger that actually leaves you wanting more.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #3 Review
What? WHY WHAT?!


So the narration works, the characters really work with and against each other, so many questions, points, issues, revelations are addressed and made to hang. There. Just hang. And then you get so much in terms of body language and expressions and behaviour in Stone's artwork and colours, a mixture of glee and repulsion, and - I just want more. Please?

(Though again, next issue is the last for now, at least until 2015. But still.)

NICK ROCHE

Writer and artist extraordinaire, Nick made his mark with the release of the seminal Last Stand Of The Wreckers and has worked on countless other Transformers titles since then. He also seems to have something of a personality crisis, often thinking that in reality he is Beast Wars Megatron, usually during our script readings, but the less said about that the better…
