James Roberts

As the creator of unique characters that have sparked so much devotion from fans, with their vocal response to the issues, created fan fiction, cosplay and other creative endeavours, we knew James would enjoy a great reception here, in August.

James’ background explains much of his open and honest dealings with the fans as he joined the fandom in the G1 years, avidly following the stories and characters of fellow guest Simon Furman, creating fanzines with co-operatives such as Transmasters, leading to the epic novel EUGENESIS.

James made his first official foray into IDW with his involvement with Nick Roche on AHM#15 and the now-classic LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS. This was followed by text stories in the LSofW collected editions and involvement in the crossover event CHAOS that lead into James’ own title MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. In the years that have followed, fans have shared the loves, losses and Rod Pods of the Lost Light crew as they attempt quests, ponder life’s mysteries…. And deal with an Autobot called Megatron!
