The final issue of TALES OF THE FALLEN has been approved to print and will show up on shelves sometime in January. Shown here is Alex Milne's (who is also doing the interior art!) awesome cover. So what is so special about this issue you may ask? For me, a few things.
First off, this is my final TF issue for the time being. Second, this book wraps up the REIGN OF STARSCREAM storyline by showing us what happened to ARCEE and THUNDERCRACKER after that last issue. Finally, it's allowed me to introduce a new character to the already vast TF universe.
This character was originally set to appear in the REIGN OF STARSCREAM book, but was left out when the ending was changed. For those of you that have the trade, the ending that featured this character was the one that featured a mutated DEVASTATOR basically tearing up the city. When STARSCREAM finally "saves" the day, this new character helps to refine and create the combiner technology for future use. Basically, a semi-nod to the "Starscream's Brigade" episode of the original cartoon series.
So who is this character? Well, it's going to be a bit longer before he's revealed, but in the meantime, I'll give you his name: FLATLINE.

It's been far too long since I've updated this thing, but that will change soon. The script for Tales of The Fallen #6 is done. That's the one featuring Arcee, if you didn't know. It was a lot of fun to work on because of how much Arcee changed for the film. It allowed me to introduce an original character into the mix, while at the same time finishing off the Reign of Starscream storyline. It's fitting that the RoS story ends with this issue because it will also feature Alex Milne on art duties with Josh Perez doing the colors.
So what does the future hold? Unfortunately, nothing Transformers-related for me. TOTF #6 will be my last issue for the foreseeable future. But there are a few projects in the works that I might be attached to. One of which you could say would be a dream come true.
If you haven't yet, pick up Tales of The Fallen #3. It's the story featuring JETFIRE (the covers are up top) and how he managed to end up on Earth and why he chose to fight for good, rather than do those evil things like destroying planets and what not. After issue #4 is out, I'll be happy to answer any questions... just don't want to spoil anything for anyone.
