Yep, a heartfelt HAPPY NEW YEAR to one and all. 2014 — the 30th anniversary of Transformers don’tcha know — is set to be a big one. Here’s a preview of some of the stuff (so far) you can expect from me this year:
Transformers: Regeneration One #100: the original Transformers series, the one that kickstarted it all (and I do mean all) reaches its stunning conclusion in the year of the brand’s 30th anniversary. Get ready for a giant-sized issue to cap the defining G1 series. Out in March. Shocks, surprises and, yes, an ending. Who said it never ends? (Oh wait, that was me.)
Matt Hatter Chronicles: season 3 of the hit CiTV and NickToons animated show blasts onto (small) screens late summer/autumn 2014. As before, I’m deeply involved with the show on several levels, as lead writer, story supervisor and script doctor (where necessary). Check out the official Matt Hatter website here for more details, updates, etc. It’s gonna be a BIG year for Matt Hatter, with tons of associated product in the pipeline.
Dragons: the hit movie, ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ and its spin-off TV show, ‘Dragons: Riders of Berk/’Dragons: Defenders of Berk’ gets the graphic novel treatment courtesy of Titan Publishing. Six all-new (epic-sized) adventures of Hiccup the Viking, Toothless, Astrid and all the gang, penned by me. Amazon has a listing for the first here (out in May).
Marvel Fact-Files: I’ve been contributing to (and continue to do so) Eaglemoss’ all-encompassing Marvel Fact-Files, an in-depth look at Marvel’s entire cast of characters. Numerous and varied entries, but the main one to look out for is the Death’s Head triple card, written by me with new art by Geoff Senior. Hoo-boy! More details here.
And in addition to all that, I’m working on a couple of movie scripts, an all-new online project with Geoff Senior (watch out for our Kickstarter promo later in the year) and one of Andrew Wildman and I’s old Wildfur projects, which has been dusted off and is being prepped for a potential animated TV show. Phew. Plus the usual round of conventions, signings, etc. Keep checking back here for details on all of the above and any new stuff that slots in.
