Steve White, editor of the upcoming Transformers comic book from Titan, has provided us with a few answers to some frequently asked questions.

What UK exclusive comic material can we expect in the new Transformers
publication?


So far we have six self-contained stories written by Simon Furman that although are stand-alones, will tie straight into the IDW prequels. After that, we're pondering our options; we have contracts for all the various Transformers properties so who knows where we'll end up?

What homegrown talent have you got lined up to work on the project?

Aside from Simon (obviously) and Geoff Senior, Andy Wildman and Nick Roche will be doing art for the following two issues. I'd like to see if I can get some of the other classic artists interested but I don't want this to be a complete nostalgiafest. We have to bear in mind we'll be picking up a whole new generation of fans who only know it from the film, so we can't afford to alienate them, especially as there'll probably be a lot more of them!

When is the new comic out, and how can fans contribute? What features, other than stories will the comic contain?

The first issue launches 19 July ­ a week before the movie release [in the UK]. As well as the strip, we're running character profiles and a fun Celebrity Death Match-type feature along the lines of who would in fight between..?, both written by Simon. There'll be three strips: the IDW prequels, the originated prequel material, and Beast Wars reprints, just for a change of pace.

An interesting read!

Still not digging that preview page from Geoff Senior. I enjoyed his work in the past, but I prefer stuff along the lines of what we see in most of the IDW books (such as the movie prequel). I also still question that Devestator movie spotlight. I knw why it's being done, but I would rather see more emphasis on characters in the movie, or at least the movie toyline (like Arcee and Wreckage).

Aren't these three questions and responses lifted straight out of the Transfans interview?

This needs to be stepped up.

Yeah, ideally to sometime in June so I can get the first issue before I leave the country for a couple of months...
