IDW Publishing Announces Deviations, A Five Week What If-Style Event
ExVee - Thursday, December 10, 2015

IDW has published on their website a quick interview-style reveal from Editor In Chief Chris Ryall of Deviations, an event taking place in March that will cover five IDW titles, including Transformers. This will be a take on the classic What If storytelling, though Ryall seems to want to take things in some unexpected ways. Besides Transformers, Deviations will visit GI Joe, Ghostbusters, Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and X-Files. Keep reading for more info, including the story hooks for each world!
Without giving too much away, what exactly is Deviations?
Deviations is, basically, a look at some of the bigger properties we publish, all of which have had many big, notable moments in their history, where we explore a divergent path in those storylines.

What led to you wanting to do this type of event?
All of the titles that make up this 5-week event have featured stories that have led to fun fan debates over what might have happened if a big event had gone another way, whether in past comics, TV series, or movies. So this is taking a big, fan-favorite moment and spinning that story in another direction to explore what could’ve been.

What series will be involved?
The series, and the catalyst for the stories, are:
Ghostbusters: “In a world… where the Ghostbusters NEVER crossed streams!”
G.I. JOE: “In a world… where COBRA turns the table on G.I. JOE.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “In a world… where Shredder leads the Turtles.”
Transformers: “In a world… where Optimus Prime never died!”
The X-Files: “In a world… where young Fox Mulder was abducted by aliens!”

What’s your favorite “What If…” comic?
I was always a big fan of Frank Miller’s take on “What If Elektra Had Lived?” from the original series. In most of those old comics, the “what-if” story always ended far worse for the characters than in the regular series. Whether that was just to do big, explosive things in those comics or to assure readers things like “See? It’s much better that Phoenix DID die,” they usually all ended very badly. Miller’s Elektra tale, not so much—he took things in another direction entirely, and handled it all in unique fashion. Which is the goal here—anyone can play “what if?” games with stories but we’re really striving for these comics to do surprising, unexpected things. And who knows, if they go over well enough, maybe they could lead to entirely new series of this divergent timeline.
