TF: ROS #4 - Script Fixes

Had a great night tonight. Went to Ben and Lorelei's for L's birthday bbq extravaganza, which was filled with great food, great drink, and great friends. Once I got home, I felt like doing some polishing of the Issue #4 script.

Mostly dealing with moving the story from the "TF meets SAVING PRIVATE RYAN" action in Issue #3 (and that quote was from Hasbro, btw), to the big finish of Issue #5. There's a lot of new characters to introduce that will play a big role in the last act of the series, so I think there's room to improve a bit for the script to accommodate their roles.

That's it for tonight, but I'll be posting a bit more regarding the finer details of the story. You know, those things that can't quite fit into 22 pages.

TF: ROS #5 - Underway


I'm not sure how Simon Furman does it, or Peter David, or anyone for that matter. Who finds the time to write? Most of the work for ROS was done in the wee hours of the morning, with a quiet house and lots of Cure and Radiohead in the background. In addition to that, I've just finished another semester of school. Finished it at 2:11am, actually. But now that it's over, issue #5 is underway.

Since nobody (well, almost nobody) has seen issues #2-4 yet, there's a lot in store. The return trip to Cybertron, a brief stop on Mars, and lots of new characters never seen before in the movie style. Issue #5 is the last issue of the series, but it won't disappoint. There's going to be a lot of action in this one. More so than any other issue, I think.


Beware! The Blog

Yeah, that title was a nod to the Blob. Probably one of the cooler movie monsters out there, well barring Godzilla and the mighty Kong, of course.

So I finally got off of my butt and decided to throw this thing together. Probably looks very thrown together, too, but on to other things...

In addition to talking about how things are going with my book, TRANSFORMERS: THE REIGN OF STARSCREAM, I'll be talking about pretty much anything that inspires me enough to write about it, and in turn, hopefully talking to you about it as well.

But I'll be adding the usual amount of work-related stuff to this page that my co-workers, Chris Ryall and Denton Tipton do. In fact, I might be adding a bit more.
