That was a pretty good interview. I liked the question about Death's Head. I wish Marvel would sell the rights to DH to Hasbro. I really feel like DH is a Transformers character and not a Marvel character.

I'm not exactly liking the idea of this crossover. And this interview doesn't exactly go a long way towards assuaging my concerns.

For starters, this really grinds my gears, to quoteth Peter Griffin...

on the TRANSFORMERS side of things, this story takes place between the miniseries INFILTRATION and ESCALATION, just after Optimus Prime has arrived to take command of the Autobots on Earth. But you don't need to know any of that to enjoy the story.


They claim we don't need to know anything about either series to know what's going on. Which is all well and good in principle, but kinda goes against the grain when they try to work it into their respective continuities. Now, I don't follow New Avengers, so I really couldn't care less (certain people may, and are certainly free to, disagree), but as for Transformers, there is a problem. By having the series take place between the two current story arcs, and guaranteeing that one of the 'cons appearing will be dead by the end, it causes major problems, since all the 'cons shown to be around at the end of Infiltration are around in Escalation.

Which brings me to my next point:

The Autobots are basically Prowl's team from INFILTRATION: Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Jazz, now led by Optimus Prime, with a brief appearance by Wheeljack. There are a lot of Decepticons, including one who hasn't yet been seen in the IDW continuity.


First off, they've forgotten Ironhide and Sunstreaker. I know Sunstreaker gets totaled in Escalation, but this takes place before that, so that's a non-concern. Forgetting that, though, is the very major fact that it appears that they'll be bringing in a new guy just for the hell of it (or maybe not, if this new guy is destined to be the one that ends up getting the dead mark...)

Either way, the more interviews they do to pimp this, the more obvious it becomes that they're trying to drum up support for it, knowing full well that the all likelihood of it going over is nil.

I dunno, I'm kinda excited about this. Moore seemed grounded to reality in that interview, so I think it's in good hands. TF's have'nt gotten to crossover with anything much, and this'll be an interesting way to reconnect with their 1980's origins at Marvel. It would be nice to see both Deaths Head and Circuit Breaker make appearances though.

I wonder who it will be.

Yeah, all those interviews for Marvel's other crossovers and spin-offs at the moment, such as Marvel Zombies, definitely proved to be signs of the apocalypse...

Also: CNI has more Transformers focus than most comics sites, because they have fans involved (it's a related project to TFormers and a bunch of other TF sites) and actively go out and try to get interviews, since it brings in visitors and ad revenue.

Casual interest and the timing's good.

Looking foreward to this. Although I was sort've hoping that Moore and Kirkman would use this reintroduce some of the human characters to the old Marvel series such as Circuit Breaker,the NeoKnights, the Mechanic, or RAAT(Rapid Anti-Robot Assult Team) to the MU. Also hopefully if these crossovers continue have the Autobots?Decepticons but heads with Sentinel Squad O*N*E*. :D
