AARON LONG: Revolution merged the Hasbro properties into a shared universe, with Revolutionaries now spinning out of the event. What will readers be seeing in this series?

JOHN BARBER: Lots of fast-paced action and big world-building. The Revolutionaries team is made up of Mayday (who’s a G.I. Joe agent), Kup and Blackrock (who are Transformers), and Action Man (who’s English). So they’re already kinda all over the place to start with, but right off the bat they have to team up with Rom and the Micronauts to fight the Oktober Guard and the new Storm Shadow. Nothing’s off the table!

So we’ll be seeing big crossovers between characters, plus we’ll be going all over the world. If you’re a fan of the Hasbro characters—from the comics or the toys or the cartoons—there will be little nods, or returns to places and ideas from all over. Remember when Cobra had a base on the moon? We do.

"That has literally never stopped a single human!"

Entirely true :)

After reading the first few issues, I'm sadly kind of "meh" on the series. Mainly because A) it feels like the writer is banging his action figures together, and B) it doesn't have anyone really compelling.

Mayday isn't any G.I.Joe I'm familiar with... Blackrock's an annoying holdover from the previous Earth-set Transformers series, aka the one that wasn't MTMTE. Kup is one of those Autobots who's never excited me, and Action Bro is about as exciting as a barely house-trained puppy. And then you have the Micronauts. And a female Storm Shadow about whom I know literally nothing other than that she's not the real one, and it all stems from the part of the IDW Joe continuity that wasn't as compelling.

I hate to feel like the guy yelling to get off my lawn, but I'm just not feeling most of the IDW HasBroVerse. When it came time to read the new Optimus Prime, I read some... remembered why I hate the Junkions, and went to TFwiki for the recap. Sigh.

I'm liking what I'm seeing of this.

And hm, interesting -- G.B. Blackrock was a Transformer the entire time, and can shift forms? Is he a Pretender? or something else?
