Simon Furman has updated his blog both with a Christmas message for his readers as well as a present in the form of a downloadable script of Transformers Beast Wars Shell Game, issue 1. The story was to tie into the Summer Special Beast Wars story, published by Dreamwave, but never came to be. Eventually the story was reformatted (pardon the pun) into Beast Wars The Gathering.

You can find the article and script here.

Transformers Comic News

Simon Furman has updated his blog with a teaser for the upcoming IDW Spotlight on Grimlock

....this one’s been a long time coming, inasmuch as I pointedly didn’t want to lean too heavily, too early in the evolution of the IDW/TF-verse, on what’s become almost my signature character across the various eras of Transformers in comic form. But, having trailered Grimlock (and his Dynobots) in Spotlight Shockwave, it was only a matter of time before the linguistically-strangled one (and don’t go reading into that that I’m necessarily going to play IDW/TF-verse Grimlock like previous incarnations!) got a Spotlight of his own. That begged the question, who was IDW/TF-verse Grimlock?

How was he different? What drives him? What makes him who he is? I wanted to make sure that this Grimlock was presented as completely as possible as quickly as possible, and that we got well and truly inside his head.

Anyway, the actual events in Spotlight Grimlock (as well referencing Spotlight Shockwave, naturally) spiral out of the catastrophic conclusion to Devastation #6, in more ways than one. On the one hand, Skywatch, the alien-aware, off-the-radar government organization responsible for the salvage/reactivation/reorientation of Ravage and Laserbeak (in Spotlight Soundwave, etc), attempt to bolster their ‘pet’ anti-robot robot strike team with a Dynobot (or so). Things, naturally, don’t go to plan (for reasons which will surprise you, I think), and this in turn sets in motion a blazing confrontation with another of the previously-introduced cast (and no, I’m not saying who), who gets some decent page time in Devastation #6.

Though self-contained, Spotlight Grimlock is most definitely a sequel to Spotlight Shockwave, inasmuch as it deals with the consequences (to Grimlock himself and the other Dynobots) of Grimlock’s actions therein. Spotlight Grimlock is also a key part of what’s coming next. Its crunching head-to-head opens the door for one of 08’s (several) big ‘events.’ Can’t say more, as I’m sworn to secrecy right now, but it’s a crowd-pleaser!

Spotlight Grimlock is drawn by Marcelo Matere and hits in March 08. Don’t miss it, really, DON’T MISS IT.

Simon Furman has updated his blog with the following entry.

"Beast Wars The Ascending #3 is out, unleashed. The issue hits stores this week (12th Dec in the US, 13th here in the UK). And if you thought things were looking dire for the Maximals (and Predacons) at the end of issue #2, wait’ll you see what #3’s got in store for them (and you). With armageddon (of the Unicron variety) looming for Cybertron, all remaining hopes lie with Razorbeast and his timelost Maximals. But no sooner do Lio Convoy and the Pack arrive back on prehistoric Earth than Razorbeast is infected by Rartorata with Angolmois ‘rage,’ more or less scuppering any last hope. Desperate alliances are formed, tragedies unfold, evil gets the upper hand, time gets all bent out of shape and Shokaract is finally unleashed (much to Big Convoy’s dismay). Their darkest hour… just keeps getting darker. Story is by me, art by Don Figueroa (his last, it seems, for the time being… sniff). Check out Don’s nifty cover art for the issue by clicking on the thumbnail below.

Transformers Comic News

Simon Furman has posted a new blog entry regarding Issue 8 of the UK exclusive comic which will be officially released in Feb 2008

"Definitely on the better late than never scale, here’s my post-script discourse on Transformers (UK) #8 (or at least the original strip bit of it). Another ’squeezed into a bit of dead space in the movie’ story, this one concerns the fate of Scorponok, last seen burrowing underground in an almightly hurry after the aerial barrage in Qatar. He’s been laying low since then, but when Ironhide and a Special Forces team (new characters, developed especially for the UK storyline) go looking they get a whole LOT more than they bargained for (and realise some things are better left buried). As with the previous Starscream story, this one gives a little more in the way of action/resolution to the movie itself, and provides Ironhide with a real workout (though not necessarily in the way you might think). Scorponok proves to be a much tougher character than his bio and onscreen appearance maybe suggests, and ties up something of loose end. Editor Steve White played his part (above and beyond the call of duty) with this one, taking my half-hearted suggestions for US military hardware and coming up with the real goodies (he’s something of an expert!). Art is by Staz Johnson, another name those of you TF fans with long memories will remember as having worked on the Marvel UK Transformers strip towards the end of its originated life, oh and the art cover is by Gary Erskine. What’s next? Something VERY different. Still new movie-based, but quite epic (taking us right up to issue #13) in its scale and reach. More on this when I do my Script (W)rap for issue #9 (soon, honest!)."

Transformers Comic News

Simon Furman has posted a new blog entry regarding Issue 6 of the UK exclusive comic which will be officially released on Friday.

"Issue #6 (doesn’t time fly?) of Titan’s Transformers UK comic/magazine hits stores this week (December 6th to be precise). New/exclusive comic strip material comes in the shape of a 10pp Jazz story, set during the IDW prequel to the new Transformers movie (out this week on DVD, by the way), rounding off the first clutch of interconnected UK stories. Separated from his fellow Autobots Ratchet and Ironhide by Devastator’s foldspace warhead (in #2), Jazz finds himself alone on a planet rich in accumulated knowledge and universal secrets, literally immersed in data. Far from unhappy about his predicament, Jazz decides he simply doesn’t ever want to be found, a decision that may just cost him dearly. Story is by me, art is by the ever-wonderful Marcelo Matere (Transformers Spotlight: Soundwave and the upcoming Transformers Spotlight: Grimlock). The issue also features a Starscream profile, a free TF target game, interviews with the stars of the movie and a chance to win movie DVDs. For more information (and a taster of the Marcelo’s amazing interior art), check out Titan’s TF Myspace page here, and click on the link below for a look-see at the cover."

Simon Furman has posted the following update on his blog.

Uh-huh, that’s right, it’s out this week (29th November) — Transformers Devastation #3. Lots of shocks and surprises to found therein, not least in terms of who’s actually drawing the issue. Regular artist EJ Su had to take some time out to become a daddy (aww), so Nick Roche (Spotlight Shockwave) stepped in to cover. And what a damn fine job he does too! Nick takes Ratchet, Verity and Jimmy through some considerably lethal hoops, courtesy of Sixshot, as well as continuing Hot Rod and Wheeljack’s run-in with the Headmasters (plus more on the intertwined fate of Hunter and Sunstreaker).

As I’ve rumbled on about before, this is where everything changes, and what was a secret war goes public in a big, big way. And with various other factions (Reapers, Dead Universe cast, etc) now ready to make their move, it’s only going to spiral further out of control. EJ did manage to find time to, um, conceive a cover for the issue.

You can see it by clicking on the thumbnail below. And for more information on all IDW’s Transformers releases, check out their site here.
