SDCC 2012 Coverage: IDW announces Transformers MONSTROSITY

Motto: "Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest ... is silence."
Weapon: Twin Shock-Concussion Missiles
During IDW's panel about their digital comics today, they announced the sequel / follow-up series to the popular Transformers Autocracy series. The title will be called "MONSTROSITY". It will be available initially via digital download. The series will make its debut in January 2013. The same creative team will be involved with Monstrosity with Chris Metzen and Flint Dille handling the story and Livio Ramondelli continuing with his beautiful and unique art style.

The premise of the story, according to writer Flint Dille, is ... "Now that they have freedom, what do they do with it?"

More details to follow as information becomes available!

As I have yet to read Autocracy - shipping soon shipping soon shipping soon - not sure what to think.

But colour me interested.




EDIT: Got mixed up in timelines. Above still stands, though!

Autocracy takes place after both Chaos Theory and Megatron Origin, although it contradicts things said in both Chaos Theory stories and stuff in James Roberts More Than Meets the Eye series.

hmm. the "now that they have their freedom" line and the title, makes me think this could be about the Monstructor bots, but I'll admit ignorance at what their current status is. if it is just a straight up sequel to Autocracy, I've no idea what it could be about, unless it has Quintessons/Sharkticons in it. Maybe the titular monstrosity will be more metaphorical? It could be going all Metal Gear Solid existential on us, looking at what the Autobot/Decepticon war does to their planet?
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

That's what I thought it meant: freedom from the "Autocracy".

But the title is intriguing, hope it's not just headline hyping, but actually relates to the story in some way.

Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
So far I've only read the previews for Autocracy (waiting for the trade edition) but am I right in thinking that Autocracy, the novels and the Cybertron games all tell the story of the early days of the war but don't actually follow the same plot? They each tell radically different stories, right?
