Shipping this week (March 17th in the US, 18th in the UK) is the first issue of Transformers: Nefarious, the bone fide, accept-no-substitutes (comic book) sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, written by me with art by Carlos Magno. So what can you expect from this six-issue series? Well, for a start, a much bigger role in the movie-verse for Soundwave, the Decepticons’ thus far unsung master of global information and strategy. He’s detected a distinct anomaly, one that no amount of data dissemination can explain. Namely, Ravage, functional and active despite his spine-tingling encounter with Bumblebee in ROTF. Soon, the existence of another big power in the battle for Earth becomes apparent: the Initiative, a human-based organization with a whole lot of claws sunk very deep in the fabric of Cybertronian science and lore. So much so, that their ultimate aim is to… well, never mind. The first issue reveals, if not all, some of the staggering secrets of Project: Nefarious. Needless to say, both the Autobots and the Decepticons are soon dragged into the escalating crisis, and nothing in the TF movie-verse will ever be the same again. Expect shocks, surprises, characters making their debut (a few unique to Nefarious) and much much more! For more info on all new Transformers releases from IDW, check out there website here.

    Woo! Literally cannot wait for this after all the hype you’ve been giving out Simon. You better hope its not been over-hyped though :p

    While on the topic of movie-verse comics, I was surprised to see a different name than yours in the UK comic in its most recent issue. Is this a permanent change or are you going to be back on scripting duties there soon?

    Hi Matt,

    I’m back with issue #12 and for the foreseeable with the UK TF strip. And as for Nefarious, I’m really, really pleased with how it turned out, and that’s not always the case, so hopefully it will live up to the hype in readers’ eyes too.

    Whatever became of Transformers: Art of the Movie? Is it slated for a 2011 release or has it been relegated to the great circular filing cabinet in the sky?

    im REALLY looking forward to this one.

    like wreckers its got a nice self contained feeling to it where youll get away with more than in the ongoing.

    plus BUZZSAW !

    Ya made my day with that one. he was the only tape most of us got in the UK and ireland back in the day as the rest either never got shipped to our market or were so rare it was unreal. he never got any love since laserbeak got all the glory so it was cool to see him.

    must say carlos art is looking incredible too, its really tightened up.

    cant wait for this so consider the order gone in 🙂 🙂
