From the Dynamic Forces website comes a new intereview with Erik Burnham, writer on the upcoming IDW Beast Wars title, in which he discusses the 25th anniversary of Beast Wars, a look back at the television show, and a look forward at the new series. It will start at a familiar place, but expect changes going forward.
The Predacons steal an artifact called the Golden Disk, hop in a time travel-capable ship, and flee to work on their plans. They’re pursued by a Maximal ship, followed to another time, and after a little bit of a fight… crash on a primitive planet. This is how the show opens; this is also how the comic opens (more or less). We’re starting at a place familiar to the longtime fans, but every little change we make diverges from the original storyline.
