I think they'll reveal some plans at Comic Con, just don't know if it'll be SDCC or NYCC. If they aren't planning any sort of break, SDCC would be almost too late given the solicitation schedules.

I hope IDW is still the licensee for TF comics especially given this Barber EIC news. I don't want Marvel and $4.99 monthlies and yearly reboots :/

I think we can all agree on one thing, that whoever does take over as the new writers at least try to entertain us all.

Trust me, the despise is mutual. There is no need to s**t on franchises from the past by shoehorning in transgender and racial minorities that were not there in the first place. Leoric from the Visionaries was a white man, as was Matt Trakker from M.A.S.K.. What have IDW done with that? Oh yes, changed them into black men, because as we all know, being a white male means being worth *less* than a minority in the rulebook of SJW opression politics. If you stupid millennials want every character in a story to be some kind of minority with a repression background, please invent NEW stories and NEW franchises. There is no need to destroy what was great about the 80s. I looked in horror at what IDW did to GI-Joe. They all look like intersectional fat trans-women, rather than the heroic warriors they are meant to be. And in Transformers? We actually now have Trans-formers, who can shift sexes from male to female. What does any of this add to the story? Nothing, it's just far left political hand wringing by annoying little children, who never saw a day of the 80s. I agree with Simon Furman, the idea of sexless robots having genders is BULLS**T, as is IDW comics and all their millennial kiddy fans.



Hey dumbass I was lived through the whole 80s and I can tell you from first hand experience and this might be a newsflash for an alt-right SIW troll like you: racism, sexism, and homophobia also existed in the 80s as well.

The first female Transformers debuted in 1985 in the second season cartoon show called "The Search for Alpha Trion" do everybody a big favor and shut the **** up. The world has changed from the 80s and moved if the Transformers want to survive they have change with the world but I guess that is a concept that you will never understand you braindead moron.

Perhaps the three of you should get a room and hammer out your sexual fantasies there instead of on these boards.

But there is one correct statement in all that crap above:

" And in Transformers? We actually now have Trans-formers, who can shift sexes from male to female. What does any of this add to the story? Nothing, it's just far left political hand wringing by annoying little children, who never saw a day of the 80s."

And here we go again with the personal insults. Cyberstrike, you've been around long enough, you should know better. Next time it'll be a warning on your profile.

As for views on racism, sexism and politics, aren't you all tired of the same old arguments? You won't change the other person's mind. So just state your opinion, and if someone disagrees, let it be.

I leave him with very dedicated and smart teams across all three of our divisions. I’m proud of the work we’ve been able to do together.”
