We’ve gotten our fair share of G.I. Joe and Transformers cross overs throughout the years from Marvel, Devils’ Due, and even Dreamwave, but to date we have not gotten the same thing yet from IDW Publishing.
This summer that all changes as Tom Scioli takes over writing (along with John Barber) and art duties for the upcoming Transformers and G.I. Joe limited series. By all accounts, though, this isn’t our typical crossover. Scioli says that this story doesn’t take place in any real existing continuities, but it sounds like it works as a story enough to fit where the reader wants it to fit.
But what’s truly unique about this upcoming series is Scioi’s fascinating take on the artwork. Using the 80’s aesthetic with some very cosmic style artwork, Scioli completely embraces the vintage look and feel, and I’m loving it. Newsrama interviewed Scioli about his process in accepting the job and working through the early stages.
