Yesterday we reported that the iTunes preview for More Than Meets The Eye issue #45 is up and can be seen here. In the three page preview there is one very unusual panel of Misfire, Krok, Crankcase and Spinister in the form of toys! It turns out that Maz at TF Square One was the source of that photo! He has also written a blog post giving us a behind the scenes of his involvement in the latest issue of MTMTE.

dang...so far, I'm really upset by this. Not upset in a bad way, like "I hate this comic" but upset in the way I think the author intends...so ...good?

It's a picture in a panel. I hope everyone's expectations were filled when it was revealed to exactly what it looks like. A fan taking a photo of toys for someone. But hey it's related to MTMTE so it's gotta be made into news.

What's next? James making a tweet about having a cold and an up roar on how this may effect the next issue?

Maz is a well known Fan that has contributed a lot to the community with his articles and blogs.

James Roberts is the writer of MTMTE.

I'm not exactly sure why you are bothered by this piece.

I found this really cool and I love that this pic was taken and included. That is just adding so much more to the comic. The fact that so many external things, whether they be references or this photo are just awesome and I love it. MTMTE is a great series and a whole new take on things, and for me and many many others it is spectacular :BOT:

I put issues 1,29, and 43 in a frame and James Roberts retweeted it. Is that news?

Hi Randomhero. We appreciate your feedback, but as mooncake623 has said, we thought it was a nice touch, and sends some interest towards Maz' work. Also, it reinforces the link that IDW creators have with fans - to that extent, while your retweet is not news, it's still pretty cool. :D

not everything has to be news, there's Creative Spotlights, editorials like William's biweekly top 5 and other stuff, so see it as that, reporting something really cool :D

Perceptor, Brainstorm, Chromedome, Nightbeat and Highbrow play "Clue", then argue about the correct answer.

As an avid, albeit amateur, toy photographer, I think this is a very cool article. I'd be tickled pink if I was approached by IDW to do a photograph for one of their comics.

MtMtE is one of the few comics that could pull having an entire issue done in the style of using actual photographs of toys to tell the story. It'd be a challenge, but if any could pull it off it'd be James Roberts. I'd actually like to see something like this!

Nah, I missed that one. All I know about is pseudo-organic ships. Which, now that I think about it, isn't dissimilar to Farscape. :-?
