Furman Talks Tranformers
just saw this, thought maybe some people would like to read it as well....
Ya know, I know a lot of fans hold Furman like a TF God. I haven't been able to read much of his material since he killed off Fort Max and Spike in G2. In fact I'd like to forget G2. Anyway, just IMHO. *Shields Up!*
Cool to see the Hot Rod spotlight preview at least
yay Hot Rod!!!
Very interesting. So we're going to see Hardhead along with 'Rod and Nightbeat soon? Nice. Great find!
Not much there he hasn't said a hundred times before, but nice for the few snippets of info about upcoming events.
Ooooo..... Purdy piktures....
I like this IDW stuff. I had kind of lost my love for Furman during the Dreamwave era, but his new stories have been more interesting. I for one am enjoying that we are witnessing a cosmic war between the robots rather than a scuffle on earth between recently awoken transformers. I hope IDW doesnt fold anytime soon.
Thanks for posting Lumpy.
I really wish they would retcon Hot Rod into Rodimus so I don't feel like new toys with his likeness are fakes or something.
As KD already mentioned, no real new news. Though, it's nice to see Hot Rod acting psycho.
And on a side note, a preview page for Escalation #4!
I really like this page/cover.
I like how the battle between Prime and Megs will be their first in years. I can't wait for that fight.
Sounds good! So... "Devestation" is next. I suspected some similar title, but i think this is the first confirmation of that? At least, I guess yoyu can consider that confirmation...
Cool, looking forward to Escalation and the Hot Rod spotlight, but im not to keen on the art for Hot Rod.
Hmmm, I'm hoping that Hardhead and Nightbeat get earth modes.
Actually looking at who's on Optimus's ship, (Pointblank, Dogfight, Override and Crosshairs) I'm kinda giddy that they might also get more "circa 2005 real world automobile" redesigns.
Don't get me wrong, I kinda liked the 1st Gen Targetmaster's other worldly-ness (I always figured they were cybertronian forms rather than what we would be driving in the distant year 2005) but some of these redesigns have been so frickin' sweet I'm hoping more of the 2nd and 3rd tier characters get some love too.
I really, really like that Hot Rod art. It's -perfect-.
anyone know when the first book of escalation hits? i was kinda bored with infiltration, but wanna reread it and try to give it another chance, and all the one shots are definately helping me enjoy TF comics again....
Nah, we've known it was called Devastation for a while..
Nice interview. Nothing really new but I liked the affirmation of the focus being on character and the slow build of everything tying into each other somehow, but not invasively. It's such a refreshing way of looking at things compared to Marvel where every story is part _ of 6 these days. I also like the affirmation that the TFs are "people" that we identify with, the robot part is a cool secondary.
I'm greatly looking forward to the Hot Rod one shot. The art of Roddy asteroid surfing looked awesome and so in character with Hot Rod's daredevil, action junkie spirit. I hope we get to see him grow and mature in this series and become a leader in his own right, not necessarly as Prime, but as someone who is able to rise in the ranks due to his own abilities and eventually takes the name of Rodimus.
hope yall like it
