IDW have unleashed the details behind the Mars Attacks versus Transformers, and well, the pop culture world as the CBR exclusive article reveals. Chief guy at IDW, Chris Ryall, talks about the formulation of these alien publications that are landing on many a pop icon's front in addition to our buddies from Cybertron. Pairing with the little green men also include: Ghostbusters, Spike, KISS, Miss Fury, Opus, Popeye (yes, nothing is sacred), and others. The Transformers G1 era comic has Shane McCarthy and Matt Frank manning the guns, should be interesting.
"The 'Mars Attacks' property is a bit more insane than most of the licenses we have. There's lots of good carnage in there, so we thought it'd be fun if we could spin that into some of our other books that are more respectful properties. Normally in 'Transformers' you don't get the level of insanity of a 'Mars Attacks' comic. We thought it'd be fun to mash that all together."
Then we jump into the future with Transformers. We thought that one would be fun because we've got Shane McCarthy who did the epic 'All Hail Megatron' story for us coming back to do a big 32-page battle with Martians."
