Es wird eine neue IDW Mini Comic Serie geben. Sie hat den Titel "Deviations - What if... Optimus Never Died?" und sie wird auch ein Spotlight zu Transformers enthalten. Wir haben hier ein Interview mit dem Chris Ryall, der diese Serie einführen wird, gefunden.

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.

Klingt nach einem interessanten Konzept. Wobei ich schwer hoffe dass die Optimus Prime Story nicht darauf hinausläuft, dass Optimus ja alles viel besser hingekriegt hätte als Hot Rod / Rodimus und das ganze nur auf Rodimus-Bashing hinausläuft. Mal schauen was draus wird.

Jetzt haben wir ein weiteres Interview zur kommenden IDW Mini Comic Deviations Reihe. Diesmal ist es mit Brandon Easton und Priscilla Tramontano.

In March, IDW Publishing is revisiting classic moments from it's most popular franchises in a series of thematic one-shots subtitled "Deviations," and for the Transformers it doesn't get any bigger than the original Transformers: The Movie. Transformers: Deviations revisits the classic G1 era to ask "what if Optimus Prime didn't die and was there to stand against Unicron?"

Transformers: Deviations is by writer Brandon Easton and veteran Transformers artist Priscilla Tramantano, and we spoke to them about this unique opportunity -- and oh yeah, we talk about that epic soundtrack as well.

Newsarama: Brandon, what is Transformers: Deviations about?

Brandon Easton: This is a spin on the extremely popular alternate universe concept seen in sci-fi stories and graphic novels for decades. The idea that we get to peek into a different continuity where events took a strange turn and a whole new reality is born is difficult to resist. In Transformers Deviations, we speculate on the one of the biggest moments in Transformers history – the death of Optimus Prime from the classic Transformers: The Movie (1986).

The story explores the events of the original Generation One Transformers timeline if Optimus Prime had not been critically injured by Megatron in their fateful battle in Autobot City. Anyone who knows the movie and the subsequent stories from the third season of the classic TV series knows that Optimus’ death was a central point in the saga and if he survives a wholly divergent and complex wall of dominoes tumble erratically. We get a universe that deviates from the original timeline in a very interesting way.

So in a nutshell, it’s “What if Optimus Prime survived?”

[...]

Nrama: Who are the characters that take center stage in this one?

Easton: Without ruining too much, I will say that Optimus, Hot Rod and Starscream get a lot of “screen time.” There’s a lot more I could say, but I’d rather have people check out the book when it hits the stores.

Tramontano: Grimlock is a favorite of mine and he plays a big part in the movie so it'll be cool to revisit that. But I'm looking forward to the Starscream coronation gag. It´s such an iconic scene, probably my favorite scene out of the 1986 movie, and I want to see how fans will react to this new spin Brandon gave to it!

Nrama: And is there anyone you wish you could have drawn but didn't?

Tramontano: Well, I love Galvatron but sadly he won't be in this.

[...]

Nrama: This is an interesting concept -- the idea of an alternate history. What does this offer for you two as a writer and artist respectively, and do you see potential for doing it more with Transformers?

Tramontano: As a fan, it's very common for us to play within established universe, drawing fan art, writing fanfics and so on. Imagining what could have been if something had happened differently is part of the fun. I like this idea a great deal. Now, as an artist, things get more complicated because you're dealing with something that people love with all their hearts and you have to be able to tell them you're not trying to replace the original material but just add a new version. I sincerely hope people are open-minded about this book and like the result. Reading Brandon's script, I know I did (as an artist and as a fan).

Easton: Alternate history stories are a sub-genre of speculative fiction and they’re great ways to explore socio-political concepts without alienating readers. I would point to the works of Harry Turtledove or Bryce Zabel to see some compelling takes on how different the world would be if a critical moment in history went in another direction.

Personally, as a writer of speculative fiction and a former U.S. History teacher, I adore alternate histories because they allow us to engage in a different kind of world-building exercise that forces us to work within grounded constraints while still pushing the boundaries of what is/was possible.

Hier haben wir die Pressemitteilung zum IDW Comic Mini Serie "Deviations - What if... Optimus Never Died?". Genauer ist das die Mitteilung über das 5 Wochen Projekt, welches im März starten wird. In diesem Projekt wird es auch andere Comics geben.

IDW Explores Alternate Timelines In ‘Deviations’!
The Five-Week Event Arrives In March

In a world where the Ghostbusters never crossed streams to save New York… In a world where Shredder was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ sensei… In a world where all your expectations are turned upside down—welcome to the world of Deviations, a weekly event series featuring alternate takes on some of IDW’s most popular books!

Starting with the Ghostbusters, readers will be taken to alternate realities of some of the most iconic heroes in comics with weekly one-shots that each highlight a different series. G.I. JOE will follow in the second week, exploring what would happen if COBRA finally won. The TRANSFORMERS comes next, looking at what the implications would be if OPTIMUS PRIME never died! Then, in X-Files Deviations, having been abducted by aliens, Fox Mulder never returned… and finally, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles one-shot will round out the event.

“When one moment changes,” said Chris Ryall, IDW Editor in Chief, “whole universes alter forever. We’re asking the questions fans have been pondering for years—and now we’ll see some answers.”

Both new and familiar faces will make their mark on this warped series as newcomers to the titles join fan-favorite creators!

In Ghostbusters Deviations,
Kelly Thompson(Jem and the Holograms) teams up with artist Nelson Daniel (Judge Dredd).
Paul Allor returns to G.I. Joe, with artwork by Corey Lewis(Sharknife).
TRANSFORMERS Deviations welcomes Brandon Easton (Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven) alongside Transformers: Robots in Disguise artist Priscilla Tramontano.
Amy Chu (Sensation Comics: Wonder Woman) explores The X-Files alongside Elena Casagrande (Doctor Who) and Silvia Califano (The X-Files: Season 10) on art.
Finally Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) leads Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder) into the sewers for the TMNT Deviations.

Look for all five Deviations in your comic shop and online every week in March!

Freue mich ja auf dieses Heft, habe aber auch die Sorge, dass es entweder darauf hinausläuft, dass Optimus alles viel, viel besser macht als Hot Rod, oder dass alles in einer Katastrophe endet und Unicron das Universum verschlingt.

Für mich eine der großen Schwächen der meisten Serien über alternative Realitäten (Sliders aus den 90ern z.B.), dass die alternativen Welten moistens totale Dystopien sind wo alles viel, viel schlechter gelaufen ist als in unserer Welt.

Konnte mir das Heft gestern endlich bestellen und bin schon gespannt. Wobei ich schon manches in einer Inhaltsangabe gelesen habe und man scheinbar nicht die "Combiner Wars" vergessen konnte.

Habe das Heft inzwischen gelesen und... na ja. Schlecht ist es nicht, aber von den Socken gehauen hat es mich auch nicht. Mal ein paar fast spoiler-freie Spoiler: noch einige Tote mehr als im eigentlichen Film, Hot Rod kommt noch schlechter weg als im Film, und Optimus... ja, eigentlich nicht wirklich relevant. Mein Fazit: kann man lesen, muss man nicht.

Naja, ganz so schlecht finde ich es nicht, das Heft ist zwar dick aber der eigentliche Comic ist genauso lang wie jeder andere.

Den Starscream Combiner Teil hättens aber ruhig weg lassen können, Hot Rod kommt zwar Anfangs schlecht weg, aber letzten Endes ist es doch wieder er der die dunkelste Stunde erleuchtet Zwinkernd

Und Snarl durfte wieder nicht mitspielen Traurig

Das Comic hat mich eigentlich nur mit zwei Eindrücken zurück gelassen: 1. der Autor durfte an der Handlung des Films eigentlich nix groß ändern und 2. er ist kein Freund von allem was Staffel 3 ist.
