"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

"MTMTE#31 is an experiment: one scene, set in one location, told in 'real time'. It's Transformers meets 'Rope', or The MTMTE Bottle Episode." -- 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 hope I’m not speaking out of school here, but during at least one point, the ideas got pretty crazy and [co-writer] James [Roberts] and I were talking outside the main room, off by a bathroom in fact, and said he was getting a little… ah… nervous, or worried about the direction things were going.

"And the funny thing was that I’d had that exact same reaction, years ago, about another creative retreat about another event, and I’d had the same moment of talking to somebody outside a bathroom about it. In my case, it was Mark Millar—and he told me not to worry, that these things settle down and the stuff that isn’t working will get tossed out. And he was right. So I told James about that—the way these summits work is like a brain working. There are all kinds of bananas ideas thrown around, and it gets whittled down to the actual story."
-- Dark Cybertron co-writer John Barber, on the nature of creative summits to plan Big Events

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

'Sometimes, a crossover is just a label for a story so big that it involves a range of characters from multiple books. With "Dark Cybertron," the fact that these disparate characters are meeting each other again is a story in itself. And that, I think, is what makes it a 'proper' crossover. "More than Meets the Eye" and "Robots in Disguise" have led separate lives for two years, and now they're crashing into each other.' -- James Roberts
