Interview with Graphic Artist Chris Mowry

Ritcher of IDW’s forums, who is one of the people spear heading the Transformers Mosaic project, has recently interviewed graphic artist Chris Mowry. Chris is currently working on Transformers: The Reign of Starscream, but not as an artist but as a writer.

Most of the interview focuses on the movie sequel comic, and goes into some more detail about the name change of the series, what unanswered questions will be explained, and how the comic fits inbetween the two movies.

Here’s a short extract:

JVR. What can people expect from “RoS?”

CM. We’ll see Starscream as he should have been in the movie. Seriously, I mean, he’s got two lines in the film!? What’s that all about? What we wanted to do was give arguably the toughest character in the film (c’mon, he took on Ratchet AND Ironhide point-blank!) some situations where he could really step it up and when he does, look out. Just think of the ferocity you saw him with at the end of the film, and match that with a contriving mind (he’s smart! he’s smart!). Now throw in a dash of madness, and you’ve got our Starscream.

So what we did for the first issue, was really just go back and reflect on things either glanced over or not explained, and explain them through Starscream’s point of view. How the Autobots got to Earth, how did the Decepticons follow them, how did Starscream fail Megatron the FIRST time? Those kinds of things we’re trying to explain in our way, through his words. Also, we’re referencing the Prequel books (make sure you read the Target exclusive version!) as well. So while some may think that the first issue is nothing but a rehash of what we’ve already seen, it’s not. It’s merely a pathway leading into the story. Oh and it’s not a total retelling, I’ll promise you this for the first book:

– Characters that were not seen in the movie
– Characters that should have been seen in the movie (in our opinion)
– Quite a few easter eggs
