A couple of news posts courtesy of Cybertronian correspondent Rachel Stevens over on Women Write About Comics, starting with a lengthy interview with current IDW Publishing writer for Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye. The hour-long audio deals mostly with general issues of the series, from its conception to ongoing issues, but there are some very interesting snippets throughout. You can listen to it in its entirety below!

James Roberts, writer and mastermind, talks robots, disguises, and the scope and humanity of IDW’s Cybertronian comics universe. Robot gender, robot psychology, and entry points for new readers — this sprawling conversation with WWAC staffer, Rachel Stevens, has it all.

Very good in depth interview. It was interesting hearing of his perspective on the whole gender issue and how some of his things were a play on words, that I wouldn't had noticed before. I feel I need to go back and reread some of the dialogue that Nautica says now. Looking forward to the next few issues of More than Meets the Eye.

A year later and I still love that picture, I tthink it is a very good summary of MTMTE, and the fun it has while still provoking a lot of deep thought: Exhibit A) The looks on the faces of the aliens in the back ground: Those arent just bug eyed aliens, they are legitimately concerned about a tweenage girl with an eyepatch and AK47s. Exhibit B), Said girl is a holmorphic representation of Whirl's id. That a Transformers comic is/was tackling the idea of the image of one's soul AT ALL is astounding, and that WHirl's is what Whirl's is is extremely funny and interesting to think about.

Anyway, art critisism over.
