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 writer 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 iwork alongside Nick Roche on All Hail Megatron #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 shared the loves, losses and Rod Pods of the Lost Light crew as they attempted quests, pondered life’s mysteries…. And dealt with an Autobot called Megatron!
