Jim Sorenson has updated his blog Disciples of Boltax with news of just finishing work on the two books Transformers: The Complete Ark and Transformers Animated: Allspark Almanac. These two books will be published by idw and are resource books with background information like character models on both The G1 Transformers cartoon show and animes and Transforemrs Animated respectively.

He even posted links to pre-orders on amazon.

The Complete Ark
The Allspark Almanac


In the shadow of the biggest Transformers event since ... well, since the last huge Transformers movie, I finished dotting the jays and crossing the cues on these two books and uploaded the final image files to IDW over the weekend. Obviously, the vast bulk of the work was done months and months ago, but last week I got the copy edits back and had to go in and make sure that all my quotation marks faced the right way and that I never used a dash when I meant to use a hyphen. I have to say, I'm really impressed with how IDW's stepped up its editorial process. They've always been good, now they're hitting excellence. At BotCon, we shared some pages that will be appearing in the book - I figured I'd post a few of them here, along with some impressions of each book.

The Complete Ark is a fun book. Character models remain one of my strong loves, and this book is chock-a-block with them. If you have either volume, you've got a pretty good idea what this will be like. If you have both volumes, well, I like to think that the more compact size and the extra material I managed to cram in makes it worth your while. This is probably old news by now, but by removing material that was duplicated across both volumes, I had enough space to expand on the Masterforce section of the book. Now the Godmasters get just as much love as the Headmasters and Pretenders before them, something that always bothered me about The Ark II. I also added in a few other pages here and there, like the Decepticon's underwater headquarters as shown off at BotCon this year. Finally, there were quite a lot of pages where I had some extra model appropriate to a character, like say Motormaster's heads, so I added those in when I could. I even got the chance to speak to a few of the original series designers and get their input. But extras aside, I think that a combined volume is the ideal way to consume this material. This book puts models together from every Generation One Transformers season and show, and is as comprehensive as I could make it. I hope you enjoy it.

As fun as The Ark is, my magnum opus (that sounds vaguely like a Transformers name, doesn't it?) is definitely The AllSpark Almanac. So many things made that book fun to put together. Just getting the chance to work with people like Derrick Wyatt and Marty Isenberg was an amazing experience. We were also fortunate enough that other stakeholders in the Animated universe, like Hasbro, Takara-Tomy, Titan Magazines, even the writers of Bee in the City, were willing to lend us their time to make sure that every aspect of this amazing universe got its due.

But the big difference was the availability of material. With The Ark, I had to hunt down old models, most of which required restoration. Even today, many models from G1 have eluded me, like the episode-specific fembots or the main characters from 1989 and 1990. With the Almanac, I had access to the entire Cartoon Network archives. Color or black&white, characters or props, background paintings, scripts and storyboards .... having this much material to work with was a sheer delight. It shifted the focus of the book from the acquisition of material to the disposition of material. As much as I love the b&w designs, getting to lay out color models and write up bios and character histories is much more creatively satisfying. Some of the pages we got quite experimental with, but given the whimsy that is Animated I think it all works. The decision to do the whole book from an in-universe perspective, while challenging in some spots (I'm looking at you, episode guides!), helped make this an absolute joy to write. I hope you find it as entertaining to read.

Big couple of weeks for Transformers in general and me in particular. Next week, once it's calmed down a bit, the blog will most likely return to its regularly scheduled program of Ark Addendums on Tuesdays. See you there!

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:
Transformers Mosaic: "The Great Mirage"

Artist Casey Coller pays tribute to the legendary John Romita Sr. again, with another variant on the Spider-Man #50 cover that he has designed for All Hail Megatron #12, this one for the 2009 London Film and Comic-con.

The first variant cover that he did featured "Megatron No More!" and was an Apocalypse Comics Exclusive that took inspiration from a classic John Romita Sr. Spider-Man cover.

Very Limited Edition All Hail Megatron #12 Cover Revealed

Casey has now revealed a second even more exclusive print set up in the very same manner, but featuring Galvatron as the full body instead of another Megatron picture.

Confused by what I mean?

Check it out below, and see what Casey has to say about the cover here.

Very Limited Edition All Hail Megatron #12 Cover Revealed

Behold... Galvatron! And behold the exclusive print I'll have available at the 2009 London Film and Comic-Con. It is of course a variant of the Apocalypse Comics exclusive cover for All Hail Megatron #12 (and of course it is an homage to the classic cover to the Amazing Spider-Man #50 by legend John Romita).

This print is limited to only 50 copies. I'm also considering only offering it if you also buy Apocalypse's exclusive cover for AHM #12, as I don't want this to take away from Apocalypse's sales. I have a feeling these are going to go fast...


All Hail Megatron #12 was released to comic book retailers last week.

Interview With Andy Schmidt, IDW Senior Editor--Spotlight Metroplex, And More

Transformers News: Interview With Andy Schmidt, IDW Senior Editor--Spotlight Metroplex, And More

IDW Senior Editor Andy Schmidt makes his voice heard with an interview on comicbookresources.com.

In the interview, Andy discusses his editing work with Star Trek, Transformers, and G.I. JOE., and his writing on three books to come, an adaptation of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” with artist Chee Yang Ong; a children's book titled “G.I. Joe Combat Heroes: We are G.I. Joe” (Similar to the 'I Am Optimus Prime' book released earlier) with Diego Jourdan and Gaston Souto; and the “Transformers Spotlight: Metroplex” one-shot illustrated by Marcelo Matere. CBR News spoke with Schmidt about writing and editing these comics.

So what did he have to say about Transformers Spotlight: Metroplex? Check it out below.

"“Transformers Spotlight: Metroplex” provided Schmidt with another interesting challenge, as the one-shot takes place almost exclusively in wide-screen presentation, whereby all but the first and last pages are double-pages spreads. “I felt that a story about a transforming city should feel big and I jokingly said I was going to do all spreads in the issue,” the writer said. “And then Chris Ryall, the Editor-in-Chief, called me out on it. Said I couldn't do it. And let me be honest, it was hard to do!

“Normally, you shoot for around five panels to a page, on average, but spreads are different and they have different rules so that the reader will read them properly. The canvas had changed. It was really tough, but what I'm finding is that every time I have an obstacle to overcome (especially since I'm still a fairly young comics writer) that it just makes me step my game up. It was a challenge, and figuring it out I think led to a better book.

“That all said, the real star of this issue is Marcelo, the artist. Holy crap, he hit this one out of the park! It's killer work and just stunning! He hit every spread perfectly. I could always read the spreads perfectly, my eye was never drawn down instead of across the spread. He's just amazing and really proved his ability with this one.”

Also notable about the Metroplex spotlight is that, despite the title, Goldbug is the point-of-view character, with Metroplex making a major though somewhat enigmatic appearance and hinting that he is at the center of some secret Autobot intrigue. “There are plans for Metroplex,” Schmidt confirmed. “There is very clearly something more going on that is seen on the surface. And yes, that will be picked up on later, but I can't say more...”"


You can read the full interview here, at Comic Book Resources.

Spotlight Metroplex will be arriving on comic book shelves next Wednesday, July 1st, and you can check out the five page preview that we posted in the news a few days ago here.

For those like me, living down South, you've probably noticed we don't get too many big conventions in our neck of the woods. Well, we're hoping to change that soon. Heroes & Dreams is proud to give us the Jackson Comic-Con, July 18-19, in Jackson, Mississippi!


Attractions will include:
Guest of Honor, Larry Kenney, voice of Lion-O from Thundercats.
An Artists' Alley, featuring some excellent talent.
Dealer Booths/Tables for all your plastic crack needs! (TransFormers, Star Wars, Star Trek, GI Joe, and more!)

This is by no means anywhere near the size of San Diego Comic-Con, nor dedicated solely to TransFormers or any other single franchise, but with a little help from anyone in the region willing to show up for a day or two, we can have a blast and provide the support necessary to grow this convention and attract more guests in the future.

I personally would like to see a large turnout of TransFormers fans to really take this con by storm. If you or anybody you know might be interested in attending, you can check out the Jackson Comic-Con site HERE for admission, location details, as well as a still-growing Guest/Artist/Dealer List.

If you're traveling from a distance, feel free to contact me directly via Seibertron.Com as I live an hour away from the convention and would be more than happy to help with directions, hotels, transportation, etc.

IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall has updated his blog RyallTime with a tiny tidbit of information regarding an upcoming IDW mini series.

While discussing the upcoming Orbital Comics Signing Session in the UK, Ryall made mention that one of the creative team at the signing has a new Transformers related project underway:

Maybe you can get Nick to hint at his upcoming TF miniseries that he'll be writing and drawing.

The Nick he is referring to, is of course Nick Roche, the main responsible for Spotlight Kup, as well as the artist for the Maximum Dinobots series.

So Seibertronians, what series could Roche possibly be working on?

Bragging rights are up for grabs! Discuss your thoughts and theories on the matter below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more information regarding this series as it comes to hand.
