IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chirs Ryall has leaked some information pertaining to upcoming Transformers comics releases over on the IDW Publishing Forums.
Be warned that there are many slight spoilers over the future of IDW's Transformers comics, without any names or plotlines being revealed.

On Page 6 Ryall discloses that Simon Furman is not leaving IDW:
Is Simon leaving us? Oh, no. I would never want to lose Simon, and he's got lots of things planned for this year and next. Will the Revelations arc be the very end of this entire storyline? Well, no.

Next up Ryall discusses the "All Hail Megatron series:
We'll likely announce details of All Hail Megatron by week's end (and show two amazing images from it. Plus I'll no doubt show more in my blog). I expect that announcement to rock things quite a bit, so it'll be fun to let the initial reaction to that settle, get the Focus On in everyone's hands.

Before going on to tease us with:
there's no mandate to focus on the movie--we'll have some nice G1, movie, and Animated comics to come, so all areas will be nicely represented.

Ryall then goes on to say that we had all be ready for the introduction of "Trevor Hutchison", someone who we cannot find by google searching.

To close Ryall then confirms in a later post that "Focus on the Decepticon's" will be available within the next fortnight.

But wait, there's more! In another IDW Forum thread Ryall discloses even more hints about the future of IDW Transformers comics:
The general direction is bad-assery. The general direction will also become more clear after we announce All Hail Megatron.

The G1 continuity will still be the most prominent of all the lines, but the movie continuity and the Animated will also be represented (with new comics, not just the screengrab books). Something for everyone.

The BW universe isn't dead at all. We'll do more.


And to close, Shane McCarthy, writer of the "All Hail Megatron" series will be joining in with Chris Ryall in an upcoming Q&A session sometime in the not too distant future.

IDW Publishing's editor in chief Chris Ryall has once again updated his blog, this time with juicy tidbits about the upcoming "Revelation" series.

These tidbits do contain some slight spoilers, about the format and characters involved in the Revelation series, so consider yourselves forewarned.

The final TRANSFORMERS storyline in Simon Furman's "-tion" saga will begin this summer. With it, we're doing something a little different--we're doing "The Revelations Saga" in four chapters, each presented as a TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT. These four issues will feature a new character, folks like CYCLONUS, HARDHEAD and two others, and take place across the universe as the story Simon started in October 2005 has spread and grown into this huge epic.

Ryall has also posted a sketch of the 4 piece cover that E.J. Su has created for the series, noting that Su and Roche will create the covers for each of the four issues, with Su "bookending" in the art duties, taking control of issues #1 and #4, but leaves the artists for issues #2 and #3 unrevealed.

Also added by Ryall are the first two covers featuring Cyclonus and Hardhead. These two covers can be seen below.

In Replying to a Steve White Interview relating to the Titan UK Transformers Magazine, IDW Publishing Editor in Chief Chris Ryall has implied that IDW will be reprinting the original 10 page Movie Universe stories:

We will be, starting this July.


Whether or not all issues will be reprinted is not yet known, however 9 issues of the Titan UK Magazine have gone to print thus far, the first 6 being based before the movie, issues 7 and 8 set "while the credits of the Movie were rolling" and starting with issue 9, an all new story set post movie in an alternate Universe, where Megatron has died, but the Decepticons were victorious in the battle of Mission City.

All stories are written by Simon Furman, with art duties shared across the issues by artists such as veteran Geoff Senior (#1), Nick Roche (#2), Andrew Wildman (#3), Don Figueroa (#4), Guido Guidi (#5) and Marcelo Matere (#6).

Chris Ryall has once again updated his blog with some information pertaining to the upcoming IDW Publishing's "Reign of Starscream" comic, set in the 2007 Movie continuity.

Ryall not only mentions that this comic will likely have little to no bearing on the upcoming Transformers Movie Sequel, but also gives some insight to what will occur during the series. Be warned there are some minor spoilers ahead:

"Doing sequels to movies that nevertheless don't affect any coming sequel have a long tradition in comics (anyone else remember Han Solo's giant green bunny sidekick in Marvel's STAR WARS series?), and we've been having a lot of fun with this one. Expect to see some new faces, some familiar faces, some explanations for certain, shall we say, quirks in the movie's script, a return to Cybertron (and another planet, this one in our solar system), and much more in this series."

"Reign of Starscream" is written by Ryall and Chris Mowry with Alex Milne and Josh Perez, on art and colours duty respectively, and should hit the shelves in mid April 2008.

Sean Galloway has released some images of his concept designs for the Transformers: Animated Dinobots over on his blog.

The images display Sean's concept design for the characters Sludge, Swoop (twice), Grimlock, and Snarl.

Sean states "My goal was to make them feel as if they had some Japanese aspects in them. For Sludge, I wasn't sure if 4 arms would work on him, but I figured what the heck, ya know? For Swoop I wanted to make him more ninja-esque.... Grimlock more Samurai-esque, and finally Snarl as more of a bruiser or a grunt from the bunch."

You can check out the concept art below, or head on over to Sean's blog by clicking here
