Courtesy of comics and entertainment site Newsarama, we have another first look at the upcoming IDW Transformers: Till All Are One series (coming in June), in an interview with writer Mairghread Scott and featuring unlettered preview pages by Sara Pitre Durocher (whatever the article might claim to the contrary). Check out some snippets, images below, and head here for the full piece!

Set on Cybertron and the political in-fighting between Starscream and Windblade to craft a new era for Transformers on Cybertron and beyond, the series has a broader scope than any Transformers series before. Picking up thematically from her last series, Transformers: Windblade, Scott and artist Alex Milne (nope --Va'al) are looking to delve deeper into the heart of being a Transformer.

Newsarama: "Till All Are One" is a very hallowed phrase in the Transformers mythos. What does it mean here for this new series?

Mairghread Scott: “Till All Are One” is a double-edged sword in our series. Our characters' main challenge right now is integration: Autobots and Decepticons, colonists and Cybertronians, various religious and political factions. These people know they need help to survive, but getting that help from former enemies is a hard pill to swallow. On the other hand, the threat of empire is always there. If Cybertron falls back under a totalitarian government and 'all' are forced to become 'one' it can be just as damaging. So everyone is working toward this single phrase, but in very different ways.

[...]

Nrama: How did this series come about? Is it something you pitched to do, or something IDW asked you to work on specifically?

Scott: We weren't sure when Windblade ended if we'd be able to do any more so we crammed as much plot in as we could. So when John Barber asked what I'd do with an ongoing, it took me a minute to figure out which of the many toys I'd grabbed I'd like to play with first. I'm glad I took the time to find it.

Till All Are One is going to explore and spotlight a variety of characters from across the spectrum of Transformers works, but in a single cohesive story. My goal isn't to hit everyone at once, but to bounce back and forth, to touch on the people that are rebuilding this world so that we're less of a classic 'team' book and more the story of a people and their struggles. Of course, some characters will always be at the heart of things, Windblade and Starscream in particular. But I've always been a character-focused writer and I want it to feel like Cybertron as a planet is changing and growing, not just a single character or a handful of them.

Heh, glad they're not trying to play up Swindle's survival as a shock - I was a bit surprised when I saw people consider the character to actually be dead.

Curious about the shot of Chromia removing her "helmet" - if there is a Chromia focus, we might see a resolution to Chromia's vol. 1 crimes, which could put rest to one of my vol. 2 gripes - if there's a line about "yada yada things were too unstable at the time to address it," I could kinda buy it. (My fanfic-y approach would've been for her to be tried in secret on Caminus and returned to duty on "probation" in vol. 2 with her Combiner Hunter deco marking her as criminal - Caminus is a resource poor world, not enough resources to easily replace a skilled worker or hold people in prison, so perhaps after a serious crime you get one probationary chance, then execution).

Seems like Ironhide's getting a bit of focus - always been interested in his recent IDW characterization.

While I do want King Starscream to last, it seems like his Badgeless shenanigans are catching up with him - perhaps with Swindle running around we'll see mention of him orchestrating Menasor's attack on Caminus. That would certainly shake things up, although it wouldn't necessarily unseat him - he's a good villain-politician, and that allows for a bit more nuance than the shoot-shoot-bang-bang a wartime Megatronalike villain provides.

We're seeing Knock Out and Prime Breakdown get pagetime together (outside of one vehicle mode panel in the Christmas special)!

Like the art, a good mixture of colourful/juicy and mechanical.

Yes, that is what I am also expecting/Hoping to see. I still have the feeling that the Chromia arc is nowhere near over, and only having six issues to deal with it, really, is not giving it the chance it deserves. If it's not addressed at all, then yeah.. it'll stand out a little sore.

(However, parallels with Civil War narrative of Bucky/Cap, now that I think about it... :-? )

Now that is an interesting character to look at, after the whole 'Pax Cybertronia is no longer a thing' thing. Or is it? What is his role, now? He obviously has a lot to contribute, but everything has changed for him since AHM and his mini series. Where will he go from here?

I look forward to more Ironhide. He's my sis's favorite, so I can't help but keep an eye on him :MAXIMAL:

True, a Chromia subplot would be too much for the already overstuffed vol. 2! I suppose the most I could've asked for would have been a "this isn't over!"-type line from Windblade somewhere.

I'd love to see Chromia's crime leveraged to talk about how Cybertronians value life - I'd imagine millions of years of warfare would leave many Cybes with a blasé reaction to three casualties from a bombing, while the more peaceful colonists would be horrified.

Yeah, there's a lot of vague stuff surrounding the Pax and Gorlam Prime - a lot can be read into Jhiaxus's ramblings about Gorlam Prime and the Pax when LV-117 was being bashed about in time, but part of me hopes that those were purely in reference to Shockwave's Dark Cybertron plan - let's leave time travel in the past (heh). Then there was Combiner Wars' suggestion that the vision was instead sharing headspace with someone/thing else instead of a premonition. My guess is that TAAO will largely deal with Ironhide's character arc; the plotlines tied to his vision sound like a better fit for a post-All Hail Optimus ex-RID arc.

I am surprised/glad that he's been an interesting character despite being killed/revived/mindwiped previously - that's basically the same treatment Energon Demolishor got, which isn't a flattering similarity.

Really have hopes its good. I'm in no mood for every issue to have Windblade with an inner monologue of "I have to stop starscream"

Art is nice.

Hey Livio! This is what cybertron looks like! It has colors and light and depth and backgrounds! Take notes!

Here's my two cents about Jhiaxus Gorlam prime and Orion pax and LV-117:

That was all done before Dark Cybtron was planned. I think John had a very different plan in mind when he was doing the syndromica story and when he James and IDW decided to team up with hasbro for dark cybertron he had to change his plans for what he was doing. If you go back and re-read those issues it's very apparent had set of plans in mind then. In that time travel issue with Jhiaxus and Orion on LV-117 we see the planet being destroyed and the ground being sucked into the air. Jhiaxus tells Orion he does not know true chaos but will. Optimus also steals the time travel remote from Jhiaxus. I had hopes that remote would come back into play by the end of dark cybertron. A lot of what was said and done in issues 6 and 9 of RID were ignored and not brought back up by the end of dark cybertron.

We know dark cybertron was planned around August and September of 2012 from interviews by John and James and the syndromica story was written and drawn a good 6 months before that.

I think John had a very different story planned and had to change it and as much as I don't want unicorn I think he was originally coming.

Scott says the last thing she wants people to remember is that Windblade turns into a jet. So what I got from this is that it will be a political talking heads book as shown in the preview. There will also be few Transformations because there will be very little action. Characters from many KOntinuities will show up for nostalgia purposes, but nothing will be done with them because the book will focus relentlessly on the same cast from Windblade. The average Transformers fan can't just jump into TAAO without reading years worth of IDW history, so they're going to try to attract the Archie comic and romance novel crowd.

Okay, got it.

Well that should be fine with you since you hate everything IDW and "don't read" the comics they put out.

I don't think that'needs to be called for. Personally I'm not a fan of her writing. I'm gonna say something and I'm going to apologize if any one is offended but personally I feel she's only the writer because she's a woman and she wrote two episodes of Prime and IDW thinks that's enough to give her a shot. Yes she wrote beast hunters but I didn't really enjoy that series. I'm sorry I don't mean to sound terrible like that but she came on the the main comics at a time of "hey everyone! Look female transformers! We're gonna have a comic with a female transformer as the main character in it, it's going to be written by a woman and drawn by a woman too!" It felt really forced and in my opinion the execution wasn't very good. Anymore it just feels like she's writing this because she's a woman who has a small history with the brand.

Again I apologize, I don't like saying something like that but it's a vibe I get off. I've said before I didn't enjoy the first two Windblade comics she wrote but I am happy to give till all are one a chance.

She is there because she's a woman and she's pushing her agenda through the material which is uttered revolting in my opinion. She needs to go as her work is terrible.

From comics to politics, when a woman is employed in an area with a male majority, you see this... odd core of people who talk of them being unqualified, only being there because of gender - stranger still, it's vanishingly rare, if not non-existent, for this group to question the qualifications of any men working in that area.

...really makes you wonder about this "she's only hired because she's a woman!" crowd.

For me I just care about the story. I don't care who the writer is as long the story is good to me. That being said, how many comic sites and social media outlets were promoting and making a big deal about having a woman write for transformers and having female transformers. It honestly put me off because I grew up with Arcee black arachnia airrazer and botanica. They've always been around so when Windblade was announced I didn't blink. It was "alright, cool"

When you push and push and push that's when I start getting irked and that's how I have felt for two years now.

Dang, you're right. Sorry man, I forgot that I'm not allowed to defend an author whose work I enjoy if they happen to be a woman or write a female protagonist. Thanks for reminding me.

She is there because she's a woman and she's pushing her agenda through the material which is uttered revolting in my opinion. She needs to go as her work is terrible.
it's not just her, it's Roberts and Barber coming heavy with the agendas and social engineering as well. It's what an adult would do with their Transformers collection. Pose them on a shelf and have them debate and crack jokes. No real TF action because they're too sophisticated for it. It's time for all 3 of them to write something else.
