Q. Will we be seeing any stories outside the main core of characters already established? Not just Spotlights but something in the wider universe, a mini series for example along the lines of
'Meanwhile on Ryglus IV '....
First of all, thanks to KJ for organizing and setting up this whole thing. Aaaaand now, here we go. I'll answer as I'm able but likely can't do all at once.
For this first one, I prefer to keep things on Earth for a while. The whole thrust of AHM is to make the title more accessible to people and I think we start to scare away people if we get too cosmic and too spread out too often. I remember saying at the start that I wanted epic, cosmic stories to feel earned, and I still feel that way. Plus, I feel like there's so much good potential to still be mined from the conflict between giant alien robots and regular human beings, especially now that the only real chance of stopping the robots, the Autobots, have been somehow removed from the picture.
Simon's stories will still be spread across the galaxy, so anyone jonesin' for that, too, will find it. And I know that AHM will also eventually take us to another world, too.
And in our movie comics, The Reign of Starscream spans Earth to Mars to Cybertron, too.
It's easy to lose sense of scope and scale when the stories take place too far away from what we know, that's what it comes down to.
