Writer Shane McCarthy--The IDW Transformers's scribe that was most famous for writing the highly criticized series, TRANSFORMERS: ALL HAIL MEGATRON--has updated his blog today with a blurb about the upcoming DRIFT series that was revealed through an Amazon.com listing, and then confirmed by Chris Ryall on his blog.

"This is something I’ve been working on over the holidays and it’s been an absolute joy but seeing the artwork coming through has been the highlight. Alex Milne is the artist I’m working with this time around and his pages have been breathtaking. The final page of issue 1? Wow.

Right now I’m wrapping up on issue 4 and bringing the whole story to a close. If Alex has been wowing me so far I’m prepared to be at a loss for words when he hits the final issue.

The mini series, as you would expect, deals with the origins of Drift, how he became a Decepticon and why he eventually decided to leave their ranks. Along the way we’ll be introduced to an exciting new angle to the IDW Transformers universe and learn just what’s up with all of those swords (especially when you could just have a good blaster at your side)."

I guess every silver lining needs a dark cloud.

Drift is actually a good design, despite his questionable origins.

I'm one of 5 Drift fans out there(LOL), and I'm pretty excited for this mini.

The hatred for him kinda makes me like him even more. Kinda reminds me of the hatred for Sunstorm. And I love that guy too!!
