TFW2005 Staff edit: We have received word that Alex Milne, a guest at BotCon 2007 will have limited copies of the Toronto TransformersCon exclusive Alternated Masterpiece lithograph available for sale at his table at the convention this weekend. If you couldn't make it to Toronto this spring now is your chance to pick this piece up. Ondoher Prime, Canada-based Cybertron Philippines moderator/Writer's Bloc head extraordinaire and keeper of the Transformers Tagalog Dub Archive, was able to spend some time with Megatron: Origin artist Alex Milne for a good talk, with lots of Transformers insights, questions, and answers. INTRODUCTION Alex Milne is a Canadian comic book artist best known for his work on Transformers comic books. Milne debuted in the comics scene after graduating from Sheridan College, being picked up by Dreamwave Publishing to pencil their Transformers: Energon series written by Simon Furman. He would also work on Transformers: Armada More Than Meets The Eye profile books, and the box art for the Hasbro toys Alternators Jazz and Grimlock during his time there. After the collapse of Dreamwave due to poor management Milne was hired by Udon Comics to work on Devil's Due's GI Joe vs Transformers series. After the completion of that series Milne was hired by IDW Publishing to pencil and ink the official Transformers Movie Comic Book Adaptation that is set to debut in June of 2007 a month before the release of the live action movie. He is currently working on the upcoming Transformers Generation 1 Megatron Origins miniseries for IDW and the Transformers Timelines comic for Fun Publications. In this exclusive online interview, you will find out how Alex Milne started his career as a comic book artist, how he got into the Transformers, and his current and future plans and projects. CYBPH: Tell us a little about yourself. MILNE: Well I've always been a big fan of anything to do with mechs. I grew up watching shows like Transformers, Robotech, etc. I studied Illustration at Sheridan College, and after I graduated, started drawing comics. I really enjoy reading manga, my favourite being "Air Gear". I draw most of my time, but when I'm not drawing I'm buying toys. My room is full of toys, so much so that I almost don't have a place to sleep anymore. CYBPH: How did you get into Transformers? MILNE: Well as a said before, I grew up watching Transformers. I would watch the show, buy the toys, and read the comics. I guess it's your typical way of getting into Transformers.
