Free Comic Book Day interviewed John Barber and Alex Milne about the upcoming Unicron comic from IDW.
John Barber:Â This is the end of the story weâ€™ve been telling for over a decade. The IDW Transformers comics are the longest-lasting iteration Transformers characters everâ€”thereâ€™s more fiction in this universe than anywhere else in the history of the brandâ€”and it all comes crashing down with Transformers: Unicron.
The question of what Unicron isâ€”of what could be so big as to threaten all of realityâ€”is central to the story. Everybody writing Transformers comics right now got together to figure out how to pull this offâ€”me, James Roberts, Mairghread Scott, Nick Roche, plus the great editorial teams at IDW and Hasbro, and I think weâ€™ve made something with depth, action, pathos, tragedy, andâ€”maybe, if the Transformers are luckyâ€”ultimately some triumph.
Alex Milne:Â I feel it’s the biggest story due to the stake being so high. It’s not just the Transformers and Cybertron that have to worry about Unicron, but the Earth and the other colony worlds as well. It really is something that affects this shared universe that IDW has created. Unicron is the destroyer of worlds, and not everyone will survive this encounter. Will out heroes even be able to stop him? I guess you’ll have to read to find out.
