IDW’s Revolution, a crossover starring the ever-popular Hasbro characters like Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Rom, launched this week — and no less than seven creators went on Reddit for a lively AMA (click here).

To boil it down for you, here are 13 important (and maybe not-so-important) takeaways — from writers John Barber, Cullen Bunn, Chris Ryall, Christos Gage, Brandon Easton, Aubrey Sitterson and artist Fico Ossio.

But that’s not all! Check out the EXCLUSIVE fancy teaser art by Ossio!
