Clarisse

Age: Age 14

Kingdom: Castillia.

Shy but loyal, Clarisse is the perfect best friend. She’s always ready to help out her friends and is good at keeping secrets. (Especially Zara’s) Clarisse is also clever and can come up with clever solutions at a snap of the finger. Which comes in handy during a fight with giant robots. When she’s not covering for Zara, Clarisse enjoys drawing and painting.

Wheeler copy

Wheeler

Wheeler is a Decimator who is sick of the war he’s engaged in with the Centurions. Coming off the assembly line smaller then his fellow Decimators made Wheeler less effective in combat so the Decimator Warlord Tyrannis made him his whipping bot. Sick of Tyrannis’ cruelty Wheeler runs away to the Beyond (or to humans, the Forbidden Woods).

Wheeler gets turned into a robot dragon when he hears Zara’s song. He makes a deal to be her animal for the Midsummer Recital if she’ll change him back. Zara agrees and Wheeler makes his first friend. However, things don’t go as planned. And Tyrannis hates defectors.

Kingdom: Tanglewylde

Zara is a bright, spirited, thirteen-year-old girl with red hair and brown eyes. Zara is a daydreamer and go getter always leaves an impression on people with her charming but stubborn personality. Zara idolizes her ancestor Queen Kyra, who saved the five kingdoms of Harmonia during the “Days of Fire” as the last dragon rider. This, along with a desire to upstage her fellow princesses, is she journeys to the Forbidden Woods to find a baby dragon for the Midsummer Recital.

There she meets Wheeler and discovers a destiny that will make her just as important (perhaps greater) then her ancestor, Kyra.

Jem03_cvr-MOCKONLY

One of the most hyped releases of 2015 is IDW’s revival of the popular 80’s animated series, Jem and the Holograms. Created by Writer Christy Marx, Hasbro, and Sunbow Productions, the producers of Transformers, GI Joe, and My Little Pony, Jem told the story of a young music executive named Jerrica who moonlighted as the pop star Jem and her struggle to keep control of Starlight Music out of the hands of her enemies. The show was a hit but went into dormancy for over twenty years.

But, nostalgia is powerful and you can’t keep a good series on the shelf. Jem is back, with a live action movie on the way and a brand new comic book. I talked to Jem comic book writer Kelly Thompson about Jem’s lasting appeal and why you should check out IDW’s new comic book.  (more…)

Comic Book Bidding War Begins Right Now For Robots Vs. Princesses – Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movie, TV News.

By Todd Matthy

In the summer of 1986, children were traumatized when Optimus Prime sacrificed himself to stop his archrival, Megatron. But it wasn’t Megatron who pulled the trigger, it was a writer named Ron Friedman.

Ron Friedman wrote Transformers: The Movie. He wrote the five-part miniseries that launched GI Joe. He is close friends with Stan Lee and helped Stan develop The Marvel Action Hour, featuring Iron Man and Fantastic Four. He has written episodes of All in the Family, Happy Days, and Fantasy Island. In addition to his writing credentials, Ron is an architect and a teacher at Chapman University.

In 2014, Ron plans to chronicle his experiences as a writer in the memoir, I Killed Optimus Prime. The book promises a fascinating look behind the scenes of the shows that defined our childhood.

I had the privilege of speaking with Ron about his career, his friendship with Stan Lee, what he thought when he first saw the Transformers, how Orson Welles became Unicron, and why he didn’t want to kill Optimus Prime.

So, to kick off the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers, Ron Friedman, the man who killed Optimus Prime.
