Homesick Alien

Yeah, the title is a play on Radiohead's "Subterranean Homesick Alien," just modified for this post. This here is my first Mosaic (http://transformers-mosaic.deviantart.com/). For those of you that don't know, the Mosaics are fan-made creations of single page stories telling basically anything you want in the Transformers universe. I wrote this on the plane up to Wondercon a few weeks back, and it was an idea that I've had for a while. Cosmos, the poor little Transformer who tends to daydream. But how can you really daydream in space anyway? Regardless, he's a favorite of mine and I had a lot of fun doing this.

Andrew Griffith (
http://glovestudios.deviantart.com/) completely nails the artwork and colors on this one. Seriously, he took a very horrid pencil sketch by me and turned it into this. Nice job, Andrew. Now if only we can get that Spotlight approved (yes, that's a hint for whatever arm-twisting, letter-writing, blackmail photo exploitation campaigns people want to start). I'll be at Botcon this weekend along with pretty much everyone involved in the IDW side of things. I'll be at our booth the whole time, so make sure to stop by and say hello to us. Hope to see you there.

So I got the advances for the Alliance and Defiance trades and they look pretty good. There's not much by way of extras for them, but you'll find a few sketches in each, rough comps, that kind of thing. I did what I could. Either way, look for them on June 4th, but I'm going to see if we can get a few copies to Botcon, too. I'll be there the whole time, so I look forward to meeting and seeing people again. Pretty much everyone from IDW who's involved with the franchise will be there, so don't be a stranger if you're going. We have a pretty cool exclusive that will be available at the show, but I'll let one of the editors talk about that.

In single issue news, issues #3 and #4 of both Alliance and Defiance have sold out. The other issues are dwindling down and only a few are left of those. So thanks to all that bought them, and I'll post a commentary sometime after the movie is released.

Last week I finished the second script of a new project I'm involved with. Still can't say anything about it (I'm sure the info will come out any day now), but I'm very happy to be working with one of the people involved. You could say that I'm still buzzing over it.

Only a few short weeks until Botcon!
