Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of IDW Publishing editor David Mariotte on Twitter, currently working on the Transformers books, we have news for the upcoming WonderCon 2018, taking place in Anaheim on March 23-25 (two weekends from now) - and IDW's presence on the panelling schedule with a session called 'IDW: Transforming and Rolling Out'.

According to Mariotte and the official description, the session will yes look at IDW's changes after the shuffling on the creative and directive teams (such as Chris Ryall leaving and the rumours of a IDWverse reboot of some sorts), but will be particularly relevant to the Transformers section of the comics. Will we finally find out what's up with Unicron and the event's aftermath? Tune in during WonderCon to know more!

It's a year for big changes and even better comics at IDW Publishing! Come hear all about it from IDW's senior editor Sarah Gaydos, editor Joe Hughes, and a cavalcade of creators. Expect the usual scintillating chat, major announcements, and even some fun giveaways.


Or if you're interested in everything else happening at IDW (and particularly Transformers), catch me Saturday at 11:30 a.m. at IDW: Transforming and Rolling Out! More info here

The way that picture is posed, it makes it look like cybertron is going to put itself in the way of unicron as he goes after earth...that would be interesting and wouldn't be the first time cybertron bit the bullet.

We've received news from IDW Publishing about their presence at WonderCon 2018, taking place in Anaheim this weekend March 23-26!

Will we finally know more about the alleged reboot of the IDWverse? Find out what Unicron is after this time? Or will it be a retreading of the details we already have, such as Ryall's departure and the special guests on comics series like Lost Light? Stay tuned as we bring you all the information from the show!

I'd be stoked to go and meet them. Looks like they will be the ones working on Unicron. I have really been enjoying Windblade so far and I am a fan of Alex Milne's artwork. Him and Sara Pitre-Durocher are a tossup for my favorite.
