I was thinking last night about how much I’m enjoying the new IDW series ‘Transformers More Than Meets The Eye’ which involves Rodimus and a mix of Autobots and Decepticons lost in space searching out the rumoured Knights of Cybertron. It’s a great story with a lot of drama, comedy, and the broad scope of being stranded in the unknown.

This also got me thinking of Star Trek Voyager, another show I enjoyed, which was another space drama with a team who were stranded in the middle of nowhere and also facing a series of adventures.

I’m also currently reading Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne Volume 3 where, in the early issues, the team are checking out the Negative Zone finding new adventures every month. And you know what? I LOVE IT!

Anyways, then I just realized that that’s what I’ve been doing with Lloyd and the Bear! Duh! Two characters, out in the unknown, facing loads of intergalactic adventures! I never realized before just how much I love big space dramas and it looks like when I created LatB I must have, on some subconscious level, tapped in to that love. Who knew?

(I think I may need to buy my subconscious a cake or summat…..)
