IDW Transformers #SDCC2018 Comics panel: Unicron and Beyond

Postby Va'al » Thu Jul 19, 2018 11:09 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Currently from the panel room 29AB at San Diego Comic Con 2018, yours truly is attending the IDW Publishing Transformers comics Unicron and Beyond panel, with David Mariotte, John Barber, Michael Kelly from Hasbro, Livio Ramondelli, Fico Ossio, Mike Johnson, Mags Visaggio, David Hedgecock, and Tom Waltz!


Mariotte introduces the event, and John Barber goes into the idea that eventually lead to Unicron happening - with Shockwave's big twist presence in the Optimus Prime comics series. Talking about the ideas that led to the creation of the event, with personal stories about his life events atthe time that the idea came, and his brainstorming with James Roberts and Mairghread Scott, Nick Roche and others.

Image


The integral work of Alex Milne on the Unicron series, and the amount of detail he goes into, celebrated and taking editors by surprise too, creating the ecology / ecosystem of Unicron.

Mariotte brings in all the names that have been working on Transformers comics until now, doing variant covers. And reintroduces the James Raiz multi-part crossover interlocking cover.

Image


Micahel Kelly and Tom Waltz talking about initial difficulties in deciding on the ending of a continuity that agreed both Hasbro and IDW, writers and creator, with Livio commenting on the importance of fans reading the books for past 13 years.

OPTIMUS PRIME

Image

Issue #22 is going into the ending , leading to Unicron, with ROM the Spaceknight showing up, bridging the gap between Optimus ongoing and the Unicron #0 FCBD comic.

Three part story, caled the Last Empire, dealing with colonists and characters dealing with the shadow and influence of Optimus Prime. 24 and 25 are the capstone in the series, Kei Zama on art, some of the best pages seen so far in the series.

LOST LIGHT

Image

Image


Actual ending for James roberts story, with Jack Lawrence, Brendan Cahill on art, all answers given to all clues dropped in past however many years. We Will Have Achieved Something.

OTHER COLLECTIONS

Mags Visaggio and Fico Ossio talking about TF vs Visionaries, the idea behind Virulina as villain, witha 'comprehensible' murders. Visaggio on how Ossio's art was useful to understand how to write Transformers.

BUMBLEBEE

Image


Michael Kelly talking about the young adult Original Graphic Novel coming out with the movie. How his daughter has been getting into graphic storytelling, so personal stake in the book, and how IDW is working with younger readers with their own books.

Image


From Cybertron with Love with John Barber, 60s setting, something new and unusual, trying to get excitement for the movie into the comics - passion project for Andrew Grifftih too, trying to get a spy story in Transformers for a long time, getting band back together, with Pirscilla Tramontano.


STAR TREK vs TRANSFORMERS

Idea behind series on Prime Directive, and how Optimus Prime doesn't really necessarily follow it. Micheal Kelly talking about how long this project has been in the works. Loooks really good, very animeted styles for both franchises.

GI JOE

Image

Image


Creating new Special Missions one shots with Larry Hama, plus developing a new arc with Helix in Real American Hero and new Snake Eyes character (Silent Option).



Q & A

Why was everything Shockwave's fault? Not everything was, decisions were all the ones of the Cybertronians that actually made the decisions.

Are we to see some Shattered Glass stories if Star Trek mini-series? Not a bad idea!

IDW Transformers San Diego Comic Con 2018 Highlights #SDCC2018

Postby Va'al » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:05 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We just received an official highlights report from the folks over at IDW Publishing, pointing out the most salient points from this weekend's San Diego Comic Con 2018 event - and we've copied below the most Transformers relevant stories: John Barber being entered into the Hasbro Transformers Hall of Fame, and a new Tom Scioli Go Bots comics series!

Though we were aware of both of these, it's worth pointing out again for those that may have missed the news the first time round, drowned in the news cycle mammoth that is SDCC weekend. Check out more details below, and join the conversations in the Energon Pub.

John Barber Inducted into 2018 Transformers Hall of Fame

In a surprise turn at the Hasbro Product Panel, Hasbro inducted not only two characters into their Transformers Hall of Fame, but real-live human being John Barber, as well! The unexpected announcement acknowledged his many years of service in writing and editing IDW’s Transformers titles, and Barber – an unsuspecting audience member – was called up to accept his award in person.

“It was a real surprise and an absolute honor,” says Barber. “I’ve done my best to live up to the legacy of these characters and their stories, and I want to thank all my friends at Hasbro and my collaborators in the world of comics — and, of course, all the fans. We wouldn’t be anywhere without you!”

Go-Bots Celebrates 35th Anniversary with All-New Comic Book Series by Tom Scioli

IDW Publishing is proud to announce that Tom Scioli, the visionary creator that brought you Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, will unleash his imagination on the wonderful world of Go-Bots! Launching in October, Go-Bots will be the first story to feature classic toy and cartoon characters like Leader-1, Scooter, Turbo, and Cy-Kill’s Renegades in over three decades!

“This is a dream project – I’m writing, drawing, coloring, and hand-lettering this book. It’s a labor of love,” says Scioli. “The idea of robots with human personalities used to be science fiction. Now, the world of living machines is here – we’re living it. The time is right for Go-Bots!”

I still want to know about the "after" part. The lack of any information on what comes after is upsetting as I worry about it returning to basic "good vs. evil."
