In a new interview posted on Comic Book Resouces, we learn that there will be a new storyline to follow Revolution in December, and writing said comic will be none other than John Barber, the man steering the Transformers IDW comics for the past almost 5 years! Barber will be joined by Revolution artist Fico Ossio and will be telling an interesting story about an odd group of 4 individuals that will include Autobot Kup, among others. Check out part of the interview below, and beware that there are spoilers for both the Titans Return storyline as well as the Revolution storyline!

Image

CBR News: Was this spin-off project always part of the Revolution plan, or did it develop as you all were putting the pieces together?

John Barber: What became “Revolutionaries” really started at the retreat when we were planning out Revolution and what came next. We all had plans for our individual series, but there wasn’t a book that had an overview of the whole post-Revolution world. I think Cullen Bunn and Mairghread Scott had a couple of big ideas — there were a lot of great writers there, so forgive me if I’m misremembering, everybody was throwing out ideas. I think Cullen suggested Action Man was in a position to look over the whole world, and Mairghread got really specific and brought up the Warren Ellis series “Global Frequency,” where Ellis and a bunch of different artists told stories about an international group of problem-solvers. The genesis is really the three of us throwing ideas around the room, and it became clear I was in a position where maybe I should write it.

.....

What brings the Revolutionaries together? Did, say, the Transformers or G.I. Joe suggest their respective members, or did they volunteer?

Barber: There’s an event in the country of Kalistan — which is a deep cut for G.I. Joe fans — that mutates a bunch of people. G.I. Joe sends in a team to investigate, but the event occurred at a facility owned by a British company, so Action Man beats them there and — as we’ll see in “Action Man: Revolution” — Kup is hanging out with Action Man at this point. So those two worlds collide, and Garrison Blackrock — who’s a Steve Jobs-style industrialist — was involved because at the center of it all is an ancient artifact he thinks can help him learn about his Cybertronian heritage. Because, oh yeah, Blackrock is actually a Cybertronian who’s had memories implanted to think he’s human.

Once they all wind up together, without giving everything away, a series of events occur that draw the four principle characters in, and that opens up a mystery — what is this artifact code-named The Talisman? — and that draws all the other Hasbro characters into their orbit. Every answer asks a new question that makes the story more personal and — in terms of the universe — more expansive.

.....

On that note, this book will introduce some new characters into the IDW Hasbro-verse. Do you all have some personal favorite deep-cuts you’re looking to bring to the party?

Barber: Well, the first issue reprints — for the first time — the Joe Kubert “Sgt. Savage and His Screaming Eagles” G.I. Joe mini-comics. That’s a set of characters I don’t really have a personal connection with, those came out while I was, let’s say, between ages where I was into G.I. Joe toys. I don’t know what people think of those characters, but it’s really bonkers stuff. I mean, they had little in-pack comics and they got Joe Kubert to write, draw, color and letter them. The legendary Joe Kubert! The premise of Sgt. Savage is pretty nuts, but within that storyline is a group called I.R.O.N. — the International Robotic Operations Network — who show up in issue one of “Revolutionaries.” Meanwhile, in “G.I. Joe Extreme,” there was the Iron Klaw, and in “Action Force” there was Baron Ironblood. Is there a connection?!?

Ossio: I’m quite excited to draw these new, re-designed characters we did with John and David. I think it’s gonna be fully exploited in a great way. Plus it’s got these cool things to his design. I wanted to be very rational on how these characters were supposed to look and how to make that work, so I can’t wait to play with that on the page.

This is surprising, but not entirely unexpected! I like what I've seen of Ossio's art so far, but I am having a hard time figuring out the character on the front of that cover. Is that a strange rendition of Kup, as the story tells? Or is it the purple Rodimus of the Lost Light covers? :-?

EDIT: Or an entirely new Autobot! Or even Blackrock in new form!

Image


But yes, in any case, cautiously intrigued!

Having read the interview and all the spoilers within, I am excited for the story. I really like the focus on Kup.

I have no clue who that is on the cover. It does not look the slightest bit like Rodimus. That guy honestly looks like a bad guy, yet has the autobot badge. No clue!

With art like that there's no real scale to go by, so given that he lacks any real kibble, I'm going to speculate that it is a Titan Master.

Having seen your post and Va'als, I must agree. Maybe it is Blackrock's new look or something like that

The CBR interview pretty much confirms that's Blackrock, FYI. Ossio mentions he re-designed him and that he's on the cover.

That'll teach me to pay attention when I read multiple articles at once..

John wanted to update a character, Blackrock, so we got the chance to re-design it with him and David and I think it turned out great! You get a sneak peek of him on this cover, but there´s more to him.


Thanks Shot Put!

Official Press Release - IDW Revolutionaries by John Barber and Fico Ossio

Postby Va'al » Thu Sep 01, 2016 7:26 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
After yesterday's reveal via an interview with John Barber and Fico Ossio, of the IDW Publishing Revolutionaries book - featuring Kup, Blackrock, Mayday, Action Man and more - we now also have the official press release from the comics company themselves. Find out more below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Revolution Paves Way For Revolutionaries

A New Team of Hasbro Characters Unite To Form REVOLUTIONARIES


San Diego, CA (September 1, 2016) – REVOLUTION was only the beginning! Once the dust settles on Revolution, IDW’s groundbreaking event series that catapulted a new comic book universe into existence, heroes and villains will rise from the ashes to form new alliances and take on even greater challenges in this brave new comic world.

REVOLUTIONARIES will be born.

A G.I. Joe, a man of action, and a few Cybertronians thrown in for good measure, will form the basis of a team unlike any ever conceived before.

REVOLUTIONARIES, the latest addition to the first wave of post-Revolution titles, will further explore and shape the fledgling comic universe which encompasses TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, ROM, MICRONAUTS, ACTION MAN, and M.A.S.K.: MOBILE ARMORED STRIKE KOMMAND.

This series will reunite Revolution writer John Barber and artist Fico Ossio and will team characters from every corner of this action-packed series, showcasing a full slate of mind-blowing guest stars, including both old favorites and exciting new additions. In addition to the regular players of Action Man, Blackrock (Transformers), Mayday (G.I. Joe), and Kup (Transformers), Revolutionaries will feature a rotating cast of teammates, opening the door for dream team-ups from issue to issue. These Revolutionaries will band together over the course of the unraveling central storyline, a mysterious plot, that serves as the backbone throughout the series.

Join the REVOLUTION on September 14 when the debut issue arrives and prepare for the next stage of evolution with REVOLUTIONARIES this December.

Crossovers are rarely good. More humans to outshine the Transformers!

I'm sick of Barber and I never liked Kup. At least Roche and Roberts use lesser known characters.

So sick of Kup, Arcee, Optimus, Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Rattrap, Windblade, the Wreckers and Alpha Trion.

Let's see some different characters.

I'll admit, I'm confused by your comment.

You say that you'd rather see new characters, which I get, and that you don't like Kup. Ok. You then list all the other characters you've had enough of, and ask for different ones. Fine.

We reported that this book will have Kup - and new character Titan Master Blackrock. Not new enough? :-?
Also, it's not a Transformers book, but a shared IDWverse book. It will include a rotating cast next to the core one. There might be something to interest you once it kicks in!

THE REVOLUTION MAY BE OVER--but the future is just beginning! Ripped from the pages of the hottest crossover of the year, the REVOLUTION team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action! KUP is a CYBERTRONIAN literally older than the universe; ACTION MAN is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; MAYDAY is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and BLACKROCK is a CYBERTRONIAN that thinks he's a human. It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus MAJOR BLUDD and the OKTOBER GUARD to bring this unlikely team together... and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe.

To hazard a guess - Barber has been the writer for both Kup and Action Man as of late, wanted to have a TF pal for Action Man, and liked their dynamic. It was one of the parts of Revolution that I thought worked really well, so I'm intrigued to see it continue.

It bugs me too. They took skywarp and threw him into GI Joe so the comic would take off again, and then we got Kup in this one, and we got GI Joes all over Optimus Prime. I'm not even sure we'll get a satisfying Spike story with all the Joes now present, and they to me have been the least interesting of the characters in the crossover
