"Q: What happens in issue #47? A: EVERYTHING. Q: What do you mean 'everything'? A: EVERYTHING. Q: Yes, but— A: EVERYTHING."

"I can confirm that [More Than Meets the Eye]'s Xmas story will be a somber vignette entirely bereft of levity and told with utmost seriousness." -- James Roberts

"It takes place in a desolate, snowy landscape, drawing old adversaries and new allies together to rescue someone who has screwed them and everyone else over for eons.

"Basically, it’s What If The A-Team Had To Rescue The Colonel They Were Running From.

'I got my #47 comps in the post today. Pre-release comps. Never happened before. It meant my eldest could read it ahead of time. I left it with him after he went to bed. I give him no hints about future issues, so he goes in unspoiled. So I just went to check his light was off. He'd left a note outside his room: "WTF HAVE I JUST READ??!' So mission accomplished, basically.' -- James Roberts

"Until the last minute, [this issue] was called 'Omnishambles'. I'm still only 51% certain I was right to change it." -- James Roberts

"I always saw us creating a new universe with this book, that goes from the distant past to the far future. It's a whole universe with eons of unwritten history. I want to explore and create and plant flags in the dark unexplored corners of this universe. I live for that." -- Tom Scioli

"It’s not that I’m against fight scenes, but I do dislike the amount of page-space they take up. You know, to show a fight properly — to give the artist space and to map out who’s where and who’s doing what — that takes up a lot of real estate, and MTMTE is a very character-driven, dialogue-driven series, and people respond well to the plots and the twists and the density of the stories, and extended fight sequences invariably make it harder to tell those type of stories — in my experience, anyway." -- James Roberts

"It’s interesting – in real life, I can’t imagine what it would take for the wider world to show even a modicum of forgiveness and understanding towards a convicted mass murderer/despot/war criminal. I can’t think of mitigating circumstances compelling enough for the man on the street – much less the victims of said criminal – to say, ‘He’s not all bad.’ You could find out that the criminal suffered as a child, or started off on the road to his future crimes with the best of intentions, or whatever, but I doubt it would be enough to even partly rehabilitate him in the eyes of the public. And yet… in the world of fiction, things can be a little different." -- James Roberts

"It’s an optimistic quest, and optimism is at the heart of the book. True, you might sometimes have to dig through layers of cynicism and even nihilism to get to it, but underpinning the broader story arc, as unfashionable as it may be, is that sense of hope." -- James Roberts

"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.)
