Comic Book Resourses has given us an update on the Dreamwave vs McDonaugh/Patyk situation. Not only that, but they have reported that Destination Entertainment will not be hosting the next Transformers Convention or the Collectors Club.

The article is as follows:

Sadly Destination Entertainment are not going to be hosting the next Transformers Convention nor the Collectors Club. But expect an announcement as to who will be later this month, and DE ito be involved with that company. Their stock from the previous company is merely that.

Though it might not be too alarming to suggest that DE people may be writing Transformers comics for the relevant license holder next year.

Talking of which, what's the latest with the Dreamwave Vs McDonaugh/Patyk situation?

Issue 10 of the "Transformers G1" series was their last, and the overarching storyline outline for G1 has not been made available to Dreamwave. Recent interviews with new writers Chris Sarracini and Simon Furman have Chris stating, "Some of the previous writers have set in place some twisting storylines and unique character details that I intend to build on to a certain degree."

However, if the previous creators have not been paid for certain stories and concepts, then ownership is suddenly up in the air and lawyers might start running with open hands ready to catch.

There appear to be a few other unpaid freelance creators at Dreamwave right now, some unwilling to continue work unless paid for previous assignments.

Look for those mass recruitment drives at local art schools and fan websites any day now.
