Default 1/18: Simon Furman's blog updated

Simon Furman has updated his blog, revealing some details for Transformers UK #9. Due to ship February 28th. Includes a penciled image by Simon Williams.

As promised, details and digressions (as spoiler-free as possible, but be warned: this does reveal a lot in terms of the overall story intent/set-up) on the script for Transformers (UK) #9, the first of the ‘new-direction’ storylines I muttered vaguely about in a previous post (or two). Remember that nice, happy ending the Transformers live-action movie delivered? Well, we’re about to throw that out of the window! ‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming pt1′ (of 5) delivers an entirely alternate take on the climactic scenes in which Megatron sought to claim the All Spark, only to be denied by Sam Witwicky. In the new UK continuity, things didn’t end quite so neatly, and in part 1 we look in on a world now ruled (in a large part) by Megatron and the Decepticons, with the few Autobots (and humans) still at large fighting for survival. Things are desperate indeed as, with Optimus Prime a helpless captive, Megatron begins to transform planet Earth into world where dark technology rules. Can the Autobots (and humans) stage a last, desperate fightback? Don’t count on it. Happy endings are in very short supply in the new Decepticon dominium. Part 1 of Twilight’s Last Gleaming is written by me with art by Simon Williams. Click on the thumbnail below for a glimpse of what’s to come. TF-UK #9 hits on February 28th.
