"The best state of mind of reading More Than Meets the Eye is to be one of heightened anxiety, I think. Every page where your character survives is a bonus, let me tell you." -- James Roberts

"Most surprised by, 'This is uncomfortable reading and has no place in a TF comic.' I was with you up to 'and'. And if you're not sure what's happening and therefore not sure how to read it? Good. Who wants a world of cold certainties? We watch, wait, think. Our take on something may change. Isn't it nice when it does? Being discomfited is good from time to time." -- James Roberts

"The phenomenally arrogant subtext there is that Brainstorm’s briefcase and MTMTE and this iteration of the Transformers Universe is the sort of base level universe. This is Universe Zero from which every other iteration of the Transformers continuities originated." -- James Roberts

"Why all the fuss about YA fiction? I was writing books full of Proper Nouns referencing ill-defined events/practices YEARS ago." -- James Roberts

"The Justice League International cover has been homaged to death, I know, but we used it as the basis for issue 1′s cover because it had become pop-cultural shorthand for ‘this is a fun ensemble book that doesn’t take itself too seriously’ – and I was very keen to send that message out into the world because I don’t think the type of casual comic book readers we wanted to attract were aware that Transformers can do lighthearted, frothy stories (at this point I should add that the lightheartedness and froth was, of course, just a cover to disguise the drama and pain underneath)." -- James Roberts

"I often bridle at being accused of acts of narrative sadism. Not guilty! Then I leaf through old MTMTEs and think, 'Yeah, ok, fair enough.'" -- James Roberts

"First and foremost, MTMTE is supposed to be fun. ‘Fun’ doesn’t mean it has to be lighthearted all the time, and it doesn’t mean we can’t have moments of real horror. We can, at times, be bleak and shocking and terrifying. But underpinning it all – and acting as a sort of narrative rocket fuel – is a sense of adventure and – dare I say it, in these grim-dark times? – joy." -- James Roberts

"It's Lost in space. It's Star Trek meets Dark Star, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. It's Justice League International as re-imagined by Stephen Moffat; it's Arrested Development with alt modes." -- James Roberts

"I bet if they existed in real life, and not just in comics and films, antiheroes would be insufferable arseholes." -- James Roberts

"There are spoilers on Page 1 and almost every page thereafter. I've never squeezed so many story beats into one issue." -- James Roberts

It's the finale to "Season 1" of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. The past twenty issues have all been building up to this...
