BOTCON  AT  DISNEY
(griffin's 2010 BotCon report)


PANEL - IDW COMICS


SATURDAY 26 JUNE - 4PM

From left - Carlos (Editor), Casey Coller (Artist), Jim Sorenson (writer), Bill Forster (writer).
.
A very small turnout of IDW staff this year at the convention, and at their panel.  Only the two on the left are IDW people, with the two on the right being the writers of the Allspark Almanac.

Started with a Slideshow.

.

.

.
A slide was shown for the Nefarious mini-series, but wasn't up long enough for a photo.
Fortunately it is a current series that ends next month (August) anyway.

.
And some sample shots of Jim and Bill's Almanac book, which comes out next week.

.
Including a teaser pic of a prototype Animated toy that would have been a Triplechanger Megatron.

Questions

No plans for any comics relating to Animated from IDW.

Artists draw according to precedents and personal preferences (more likely the latter, with recent comic inconsistancies)
The acknowledged the lack of uniformity in the character modes. (probably not enough IDW people there to take note or look into it)

Hasbro can step in if necessary to promote a certain toy form, but artists generally have freedom.
