Earlier today, at 2 pm San Diego time, IDW Publishing rounded up current Transformers writers John Barber (Robots in Disguise), Mairghread Scott (Windblade) and James Roberts (More Than Meets the Eye) for their Dawn of the Autobots live discussion panel, chaired by IDW Marketing and PR Manager Rosalind Morehead and Coordinator Kahlil Schweitzer. The full hour discussion can be seen in the YouTube video embedded below, but some of the highlights are listed after that!



- All speakers summed up their current status, and where the books are heading for now, after the Dark Cybertron event. Also, Barber commented on the quality of the art, with Sarah Stone, Alex Milne and Andrew Griffith getting a mention and collaboration with Flint Dille, Chris Metzen and Livio Ramondelli.
- They commented on Windblade being the first of the three titles to launch the new status quo, and the cast choices that Scott made for who stayed on Cybertron.
- Weirder, stranger, more violent territory lies ahead for the whole of Dawn of the Autobots, and More Than Meets the Eye in particular.
- Reign of Starscream on Cybertron after Windblade concludes? It will definitely still affect the two ongoings, and RID is not done with Cybertron, there will be movement between there and Earth (focus of the first arc at least).
- Scott talks about the role of Starscream in Windblade miniseries: he is the ruler, the 'dog that caught the car' but has to act more democratically because of Windblade and Metroplex. Though he is willing to do anything to keep that power.
- MTMTE's repercussions of Megatron's side switching: Tarn and the Decepticon Justice Division *will* find out and the paths will cross, though not as readers might expect. All of season 2 is about fallout, about Megatron's change.
- What parts of the message of issue one of MTMTE have we seen and will we see? A lot. Soon.
- How much of the Transformers universe so far and future is plotted and planned? Barber helps keeping track of events, looks, qualities, while Roberts has a deeper knowledge of the Transformers lore from before IDW.
- Grimlock! Currently in the hands of Roberts, somewhere with the Scavengers in MTMTE - he will get attention, and he will show up soon, coming to the fore, and going deeper into what happened to him on Garrus 9.
- More details on Caminus from Windblade miniseries? Just a little more, not too much (but plenty behind the scenes).
- Likely to see crossovers any time soon? Not yet, definite connections, and casts can talk to each other now (as opposed to Season 1), also with Primacy, but letting each book do its own thing for a while.
- With RID set on Earth now, Barber (and Griffith's) approach has moved to Marvel or plot style, with Barber sending the plot to Griffith, layouts are made, sent back for dialogue to be added. The stakes are definitely higher for the characters, and the writing now.
- Level of heartbreak in MTMTE on a scale of 1 to 10: it's going 'to break your soul'. New recruits, new interpersonal relationships, a lot of opportunities.

There were also a number of personal questions for the writers, from favourite characters to cast choices for the new season ('everyone you haven't yet is quite probably on the Lost Light'), difficulties or dislikes in writing certain characters, the reaction to Windblade #1 ('extremely positive'), Starsaber's potential return in MTMTE ('maybe') and more information about Rung, confirmation that all three will be attending BotCon 2014 this summer, choices for hypothetical animated films from arcs or plotlines, and a plug for Robots in Disguise #28, out tomorrow, more teasers for MTMTE #28 coming next week, and a glimpse at what awaits in Windblade #2!

After the Hasbro panel slideshow images and summary we've posted so far, here comes the official IDW Publishing press release with all the announcements made over the weekend at WonderCon! We've higlighted the parts related (even vaguely) to Transformers, but read on below for more.

IDW Announcements Roll Out
at Wonder Con 2014

Multiple New Projects Coming From Publisher


San Diego, CA (April 21, 2014) – At this year’s Wonder Con in Anaheim, IDW unleashed an impressive array of announcements, bolstering its lineup through the fall of 2014 and beyond. Brand-new titles, miniseries featuring fan-favorite characters, new Artist’s Editions, new television deals, and a first-of-its-kind exclusive creator deal rounded out the action-packed weekend.

IDW has secured the amazing talents of Locke & Key co-creator Gabriel Rodriguez by signing him to an exclusive deal. His work has appeared in IDW comics since the very beginning, and will continue to do so exclusively, with his next project being the hotly anticipated Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland with Eisner Award-winning writer, Eric Shanower.

IDW Entertainment, along with George Lopez and his Travieso Production Company, announced they are developing Wormwood as an animated television series based on the acclaimed IDW title created by Ben Templesmith. David M. Stern (Ugly Americans, The Simpsons) has been tapped to write the pilot episode and serve as an executive producer on the series. Circle of Confusion (Walking Dead) will also executive produce the show. IDW Entertainment will fund development of the series, which will soon be marketed to the networks.

At the Artist’s Edition panel, Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier showed off some of the amazing art included in the Marvel Cover’s Artist’s Edition and announced that John Buscema’s Silver Surfer (in cooperation with Marvel Comics), and two more projects with Walter Simonson, Walter Simonson’s Manhunter & Other Stories (in cooperation with DC Entertainment), and Walter Simonson’s Lawnmower Man Artist’s Edition portfolio, collecting the entire Stephen King-penned story into a deluxe portfolio, will soon join the IDW Artist’s Edition catalog!

The acclaimed videogame franchise Borderlands is returning to IDW with a brand new miniseries “The Fall Of Fyrestone.” Written by the original game writer Mikey Neumann, the new series promises the dark humor and high-end action that fans love about the videogames.

IDW’s Star Trek comics continue to break new ground and delight fans with two stories that are Star Trek “firsts.” Star Trek #35 starts “The Q Gambit,” which crosses the paths of the omnipotent (and beloved) Q and the crew of the recent 2009 film franchise for the first time. In July, fans will get the chance to see all six Star Trek medical officers ban together for the first time as they fight a mysterious virus in the one-shot Star Trek Special: Flesh and Stone.

Traveling back to the ‘40s, the new miniseries The X-Files: Year Zero by writer Karl Kesel and artists Vic Malhotra and Greg Scott explores the mysterious origins of the department and the strange connections Mulder and Scully now find themselves up against.

A new five-part miniseries set in the world of Judge Dredd focusing on Judge Anderson will debut this August: Judge Dredd: Anderson, Psi-Division, by writer Matt Smith and artist Carl Critchlow, will continue to explore Dredd’s early years in this follow-up to Smith’s Judge Dredd: Year One series.

IDW returns to Konami’s horror masterpiece with Silent Hill Downpour: Anne’s Story. Written by Tom Waltz (Silent Hill: Sinner’s Reward, Silent Hill: Past Life and the Silent Hill Downpour video game), with artwork by Tristan Jones (Ghostbusters, Hoax Hunters). Waltz, further acclaimed for his writing on IDW’s ongoing TMNT revival, will also launch a sci-fi action-adventure epic with artist Casey Maloney, The Last Fall.

The partnership between IDW and 44FLOOD was announced at New York Comic-Con 2013, and this weekend it was made public that the second release from this collaboration is Ben Templesmith’s The Squidder, a new four-issue series coming this August.

Also on the creator-owned front, Angel: After the Fall fan-favorite writer Brian Lynch will launch Monster Motors in July. Announced at “The Greatest Panel in the Known Universe,” the action-comedy features art and cover by Transformers artist Nick Roche.

Transformers: Primacy is coming this August! Writers Chris Metzen and Flint Dille with artist Livio Ramondelli guide us through the war for Cybertron that will shake the world of the TRANSFORMERS to the core, in this, the final chapter of the Cybertron War trilogy.

And finally (for now), IDW’s partnership with Darby Pop Publishing grows with the upcoming July release of Doberman. From the minds of Rob Rosell and Scott Marder, known from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Unsupervised, with writer Jack Lambert and artist Brandon McKinney (Army of Two) the story of Frank Doberman comes to life and he wants a six-pack and vengeance!

Following the reported news that a new mobile game was being developed by DeNA, who currently run Transformers: Legends, the company have updated their blog with a clarification. The game is being developed by their Chinese counterpart, and is not affiliated with Transformers: Legends in any way, nor is it going to be released in the US. Read on or here for more.

TRANSFORMERS Rising Clarification
"Hey guys,

As you may have heard, there’s a new DeNA game being developed titled Transformers Rising. We wanted to take a quick moment to address some of the misconceptions surrounding it.

For clarification, this game is being developed by our sister studio in China, and is in no way affiliated with, or a sequel to TRANSFORMERS: Legends.

There are currently no plans for a US release.

There is no beta testing currently going on. Claims of invitation and access to a Transformers Rising beta are completely fabricated for reasons unknown to us.

This game’s development and existence does not affect or influence TRANSFORMERS: Legends in any way. We have heard a few players suggesting that this game’s arrival will mark the end of TFL, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

TRANSFORMERS: Legends is running strong with a bright future ahead of it, and we want to make sure that all of our loyal players are well aware of that.

Roll out!
The TRANSFORMERS: Legends Team”

Thanks to Seibertron.com staff member Supreme Convoy, we get a look at what was said during the 'IDW Publishing and Hasbro: Transformers, G.I. Joe and More!' panel event over at WonderCon, on Friday evening! Below is a summary of the main points made by the various speakers: John Barber moderated the panel, which consisted of editor Carlos Guzman, and writers Mairghread Scott, Tony Fleecs, and Flint Dille. They touched upon Dawn of the Autobots, the new Decepticon leadership, G.I. Joe specials and a new Flint Dille book, sequel to Monstrosity - Primacy. Read on below, and check out some of the G.I. Joe crossover images courtesy of Tom Scioli's Tumblr!

Dawn of the Autobots started on Wednesday. Megatron has joined the Autobots, and is now captain of the Lost Light in More than Meets the Eye.

Windblade just started. The lead character is apparently a descendant of Cybertron.

Robots in Disguise, written by John Barber and art by Andrew Griffith, is set back on Earth and stars Optimus Prime, Jazz and Sideswipe (among others). The planet is probably not going to have a welcoming reaction to the return of Optimus Prime and the Autobots.

In More than Meets the Eye, written by James Roberts and art by Alex Milne, Megatron is now leading the Lost Light. The book was called "Really crazy, really lot of fun."

Windblade, the four-issue mini series written by Mairghread Scott and art by Sarah Stone, is billed as new reader friendly. Windblade comes into conflict with Starscream. Really fun and Mairghread believes it's an "expressive, hopeful book."

We were reminded that Windblade is the result of a series of polls taken by the fans. She recently made debut in the Dark Cybertron event, along with Nautica and Chromia.

The new book was announced! Primacy, written by Flint Dille and Chris Metzen, and art by Livio Ramondelli. This will be the last part of the trilogy starting with Autocracy and Monstrosity. Dille described it as a war book and "carnage fest." This is the moment where we see the characters become what we're familiar with. Dille teased that Sharkticons and Quintessons might show up.

They mentioned Transformers vs GI Joe, written by John barber and Tom Scioli, and art by Scioli too. Barber says it's probably the craziest book he's worked on. Things get nuts.

As GI Joe corners Cobra Commander, Starscream purses Bumblebee and the story takes off from there. It's pure comics. Guzman said that he had no idea how Tom was going to draw some of the story elements until he sees the pages that get turned in.

GI Joe: The Real American Hero #200 was just released and the series is still going strong. The slideshow showed issue #201 will have a Liefeld cover. Guzman joked that the series probably going to make it to #300.

IDW Publishing is working on a deluxe hardcover anniversary edition of GI Joe #21, The Silent Interlude. IDW is going back and reshooting original art as well as recoloring it.. and adding even more extra material and commentaries.

IDW teased Fall of GI Joe for September 2014. They're not ready to make announcement just yet. Barber claimed it will please a lot of fans.

As for the background on the decision on making Megatron an Autobot, it goes back to September 2011. James Roberts, Phil Jimenez, and John Barber broke down Dark Cybertron at Hasbro. Barber seems to remember Mark Weber (Global Brand Development Manager for Hasbro) suggested Megatron being an Autobot and was shocked Hasbro allowed it.

As for who's leading the Decepticons.. They have lost the war. Lots of Decepticons might defect to Autobot side. Some believe Megatron sold out. Galvatron gathers and forms new Decepticon group on Cybertron with new agenda. Soundwave and Galvatron will lead group, for now.
