From what we heard half a year ago, Autocracy was planned as a digital-only series, with each chapter running about eight to twelve pages long. Is that still the case?
We were also told the series would be taking place either before the Autobot/Decepticon war, or during the very early stages of the war, roughly in the Megatron: Origin/"Chaos Theory" era. Is that still the case?
Hopefully this doesn't spoil anything major, but is the cast of characters familiar to Transformers fans or have you been illustrating a mostly new or untapped cast?
Who is your favorite character to draw?
Are you doing your own colors for this series?
Finally, do we have a set release date or month for the series yet?
Thanks for the kind words! That means a lot.
Autocracy is indeed set during the "Chaos Theory/early war" era. The cast of characters will absolutely be familiar to readers. Believe me, you're getting some major characters with major screentime. For me, personally, one of the highlights has been getting to draw many more Decepticons ( As "Chaos" was a more Autobot-heavy story).
My favorite character to draw is still Optimus Prime. But I have so many favorites beyond that, most of whom appear in Autocracy ( to tease things a bit!) And yep, I will be doing my own colors.
We do have a release date..there will be a big announcement very shortly.
