Budiansky and Figueroa Interviewed
I'm no comic expert, but when the names Budiansky and Figueroa are mentioned, I know them. These two guys have teamed up on IDW's new adaptation of the Transformers: The Movie in comic form. We previously reported on the 5 page preview that IDW released last week of the first issue of this short comic series. The art looks awesome.
"WIZARD: What’s it like for you to be a part of the Transformers for this pivotal story?
BUDIANSKY: It’s not the first time I returned to this “pivotal story”—I was the editor of Marvel’s adaptation in 1986! But it was nice to be able to get involved with Transformers again as a writer after 17 years away from it and have the luxury of four issues to adapt this story, which has so much significance in the Transformers mythology.
FIGUEROA: It’s a fan’s dream! I tried to stay as true to the original, even adapting my style a bit to that of the cartoon, but not totally copying it frame by frame. It’s such a classic that I really didn’t want to mess with it visually too much."
