Once again Simon Furman has updated his blog. In this latest entry Furman talks about the soon to be released UK Transformers Issue 3. According to Furman:


"The focus of #3’s story (and, as always, I’ll tiptoe around the fine details, so no major spoilers) is Ratchet, who (in the live-action movie incarnation of things) is much more of a brawler. Sure, he’s still a battlefield medic, but this Ratchet is quite willing to take on all-comers (and believe me, he does!). The trick with these focused ten-page character-led stories is to both tell a focused, ten-page character-led story (and make it a story in and of itself, rather than one part of six, as the overall arc is structured) and somehow find a way to sneak in cameos from other Transformers. Such is the way we’ve constructed the story (largely because we didn’t want to impact too directly on the Prequel comics and other pre-Movie stuff), with the focal Transformers scattered here and there in the far reaches of outer space (after the end of #2), it’s been a challenge to find ways to involve or reference the rest of the cast. But then, I like a challenge (it keeps things interesting), and so far so good. The ten pages of Ratchet action manages to shoehorn in a bunch of other characters, as does the Devastator story. Now, if only I can do the same for Ironhide (#5) and Jazz (#6)!"

I like the idea of arching short burst solo stories

I'm sure it's a good read, but why bother with Devestator? He's not in the movie. True, it does give Furman a clean slate to work with, but whatever route he goes with the character, things could completely change if they decide to include him in one of the sequels to the movie.

Perhaps this is a sign of things to come from the movie, or perhaps never will come.....

They are planning on making a sequal to the movie. So if Furman uses characters that are not in the first one he will have the ability to take liberties that in the future he would not be allowed to do. Plus with so many restraints on most of the stuff he's done for the movie so far it must be nice to use a character he has more freedom with. Allow him to be creative rather than just adaptive and innovative.

That's what I figured....
