"I really wanted to explore the idea of 'forced friendship' and 'official loneliness' in an alien society. Good old world-building, y'know? At the risk of opening up yet another can of worms, by exploring this idea I was passing comment, indirectly, on the real world stigma attached to being an unmarried woman of a certain age [...] If I was worried about anything in this issue, actually, it was the fact that Nautica (rightly) considers the whole idea as 'pathetic', yet ultimately, if reluctantly, bows to religious pressure and goes along with it... [An aside: As further evidence of the extent to which I worried about this stuff, and about my treatment of the female TFs in this story more generally, I offer you the story's title, The Frail Gaze. . .]" -- James Roberts

When last we left off Cobra had discovered the location of the lost Ark of the Autobots, and reprogrammed/brainwashed the Transformers aboard to serve them, after their initial attack a team is created to combat this new threat: G.I. Joe.

This issue is the calm before the storm.

"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

When last we left our exasperated heroine, she was defending Metroplex's spacebridge as Swindle and a bunch of Decepticons stormed it. Meanwhile a bunch of combiners were duking it out over on Caminus... again.

You'd think they could find someplace else to fight )

ALSO! Several of you have commented in previous posts that you enjoyed Sarah Stone's artwork on the issues she did. Well, guess who now has an art book out? (Hint: it's Sarah Stone.)

When last we left our not-in-these-scans heroine, Prowl and the Constructicons formed Devastator to wreck Metroplex's spacebridge so as to stop Starscream from creating a Cybertronian empire. Then a bunch of other Transformers combined and put down Devastator and Prowl got arrested.

Now it's time for visiting hours )

"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

When last we left our aerodynamic heroine, she was trying to help clean up Caminus and create a multi-planet Transformers council of worlds, where Cybertron and its colonies would have an equal voice. Meanwhile, Prowl decided to ruin things because he's kind of a jerk.

He didn't phrase it exactly that way )

When last we left our ambassadorial heroine, she was undermining the elected leader of Cybertron by establishing Optimus Prime as a living deity on Caminus. Also there were rampaging giant giant robots, so now there's a lot of repair and clean-up to be done.

Quick! Does anyone transform into a dustpan? )

You know I wasn't going ton post another GI Joe/TF crossover so soon, but I need a more rational version of this, in light of that weird version's continued weirdness.

"Any time I'd write a panel that I thought could be drawn, I felt guilty because I didn't think I was doing it right. Every panel should be something that can’t be drawn, because that’s what Tom draws. He draws impossible panels. You throw out all the possible stuff that you put down, and that’s pretty much the opposite of every instinct I’ve been hit with for the past ten years." - co-writer John Barber

"All other versions of Transformers and G.I.Joe are Apocrypha." -- artist/co-writer Tom Scioli

Last time the GI Joes were big dumb soldiers who on the orders of a Senator who is very quick to suggest the destruction of her pet project, a flying nuclear power plant, destroyed Bumblebee after he saved a little kid. The Insecticon Bombshell was able to gang access to the plant, and a none too happy Superion showed up wanting to know what happened to his friend.




Also I love this cover, it's movie night at Shockwave's house! Get down Ravage!

When last we left our unfortunate heroine, her home planet Caminus was being invaded by the combiner Menasor.

Well, the police can handle it, right? )
