Has Roberts demonstrated an interest in comics writing outside of TFs? Very hazy recollection of interviews in which I think was stated he was a freelance writer before TFs (non-fiction) and I think has been involved in law enforcement or private security.

I've just been reading MTMTE, although picked up Windblade (read better collected) and the first trade of Joes/TF is on order. Hoping for less tosh like Dark Cybertron in future.
Ah, cheers. I see that IDW publish it and there are more issues coming out in February. I should delve.

Haven't heard anything like that from Roberts but Dalek is slightly more glued to his Twitter feed than I. I figure that he has a day job of some sort and I reckon he's got more than a few great novels in him. Didn't Douglas Adams start out as a bouncer in a night club on account of his tallness? Literary stardom through private security has a precedent.

Did anyone like Dark Cybertron without reservation? I get the sense that even the creative teams feel like it was at least a little bit of a misfire. I wonder how sales did and what benefit IDW got out of the toy pack-ins beyond scoring good graces with Hasbro. I do think that in the long term, the comic pack-ins will intrigue a lot of young fans.
