The bold new vision of the Transformers universe that will excite longtime fans and new readers alike continues!

Crisis! The tether holding Cybertron's inner moon to the planet has fallen and hundreds of lives have been lost. As the rubble is sorted through, the Ascenticons are on the move, hoping to leverage the situation and the lives lost in their favor. Meanwhile, the Rise, now under Megatron's command, attempt to hide some of their most vicious members, but putting a bunch of killers in a single transport is never a good idea.
Plus, in response to the crisis at home, the Reversionist faction has fled Cybertron and the teachings of their leader have convinced them that the only way to return is to trigger Cybertron's rebirth. But when the decision comes to Gauge, the youngest Cybertronian, will she spare the planet? And far away from Cybertron, Ultra Magnus has his own problems-namely, a group of sinister mercenaries on the hunt for Cybertronian artifacts.

Collects Transformers #19-24 and Transformers: Galaxies #7-12.

It's no surprise 2020 hasn't be great for businesses. The comics and publishing industries have been hit especially hard between halted productions, shipping delays, and most retailers only just now starting to come out of quarantine. But despite all of that IDW has announced a strong second quarter to 2020 even with a net loss of $0.04 per share. Revenue dropped to $11.6 million in the second quarter from a first quarter high of $14.1 million, which is no doubt a large drop, but it's a considerable improvement over the 2019 year revenue of $7.8 million.

Much of their growth comes from live action properties like completing production on the first half of season four of Wynonna Earp and Netflix ordering a second season of Locke & Key. They also credit things like puzzles, board games, coloring books and new graphic novels. They were also able to soften the blow of the pandemic through things like Paycheck Protection Program loans amounting to $3.0 million for furloughed employees, the majority of which have returned to work. IDW was also able to do things like focus on "back catalog, digital sales, direct-to-consumer sales, foreign sales, and book market channels" to keep ahead. This is where Transformers would have had the most influence on their revenue despite few titles being mentioned directly in the report.

There's a lot more information at the link above and charts aplenty if you really want to go deep on the details. If you were ever concerned that IDW was in trouble then rest assured that they're doing just fine and more Transformers comics are on the way!

IDW Publishing has shared a planned schedule for their various comic releases throughout the summer. As most of our readers are aware, shipments of new comic books stopped in late March due to world events, but have resumed as of last week. So far, none of the delayed Transformers comics set for late March, April or May release have made it out, but IDW has released a plan for when readers should expect these books. While it can possibly be assumed many of these are printed and waiting in a warehouse somewhere, we would also caution readers to expect that the schedule we've copied below could be subject to frequent changes with little-to-no notice, so be sure to check with your local comic shop before heading out on Wednesdays for the next few months if you have doubts about what's available.

A copy of IDW's announcement is below, followed by the dates for Transformers-related comic releases. You can see the full schedule of IDW Publishing comic releases on IDW's website.

IDW Reveals Comic Book Direct Market Publishing Schedule for Summer 2020
Transformers News: IDW Transformers Comic Book Release Schedule for Summer 2020


SAN DIEGO, CA (May 26, 2020) – IDW Publishing (OTCQX: IDWM), the award-winning publisher of comic books and graphic novels, is thrilled to announce its revised Direct Market release schedule for Summer 2020. With world-renowned brands like Sonic The Hedgehog and Transformers, groundbreaking original series like Usagi Yojimbo and Sleeping Beauties, acclaimed celebrations of the comics medium like Dave Cockrum’s X-Men Artifact Edition and Parker: The Martini Edition - Last Call, and everything in-between, IDW is perfectly poised to bring readers the summertime thrills they’ve been longing for -- all available from your friendly neighborhood comic shops!

“It’s been a crazy time for everybody,” says John Barber, Editor in Chief at IDW. “I’m really excited about finally bringing people the thing that brings us together: comics and books. There’s a really wide range of comics and graphic novels coming from IDW this summer — some you’ve probably been waiting for, and some that are new surprises. For me, the real magic is that there are stories here for everyone, from every walk of life.”

Chris Ryall, IDW’s President, Publisher, and CCO, says, “We’ve all been waiting -- fans, retailers, and our staff alike -- fervently and sometimes with a bit of understandable restlessness. Our thanks go out to all of you for letting us continue to make, ship, and sell comics to you. None of us take that opportunity for granted – and we will all continue to strive to make any purchase you make worth your time and your money.”

News on the comics front was a bit slow due to IDW and other big publishers choosing to postpone their release of new comics during part of the pandemic. Well, we got a lot of news all at once and some of it is pandemic related and quite sad. Quite a bit of the senior staff at IDW who were furloughed initially have now been laid off. This includes Managing Editor Denton Tipton, Associate Publisher David Hedgecock, Senior Graphic Artist Gilberto Lazcano, Senior Graphic Designer Christa Miesner and Brand & Marketing Manager Spencer Reeve.

On the Transformers side of things, we have some new art with Freddie Williams II's retail incentive cover for Transformers vs. The Terminator 4. You can see it below. It will be coming out June 24th. And you can discuss about that series here.

Transformers News: IDW Comics News Roundup with Layoffs Announced, Simon Furman Commentary and TF VS Terminator Cover

Last but most certainly not least, we have Simon Furman discussing the first 4 pages of the upcoming Transformers '84: Secrets & Lies. This is set before Marvel's first issue of Transformers, and we have a nice shot of Jetfire working alongside his Decepticon brethren. The article comes to us from SYFY. This book is coming out in July and you can discuss that series here

The attack on Stanix is also referenced by Optimus Prime in Transformers ’84 #0, dovetailing the narratives somewhat. Ratbat made his U.S. comic book debut in TF US #27, which established his role (on Cybertron) as the Decepticons’ fuel auditor, and here he plays a bigger role in the unfolding events. By the way, Shockwave’s solution (on the following pages) provides another key twist to established/formative events in Transformers (Marvel) #1.”

While the initial Seacons were a slow reveal, Takara is revealing everything about God Neptune all at once. This was a redeco of the G1 toys for their exclusive Beast Wars subline. And now years later, we have it as a Transformers Generations Selects release.

While the original was more or less a straight redeco, there is some retooling in this set. Scylla has new upper arms, new head, new chest, new knees, and new thighs to make her appear more feminin.

Nautilator isn't part of this group though, which was expected.

Everything included is listed below. It will be sold as a whole set for 20000 Yen (around $190 USD) at the end of October 2020. For residents in Japan, it will only be sold through Takara Tomy Mall. For people outside Japan, it will be made available through various online retailers, as the previous Seacons were. The price will probably be around $200 USD. You can see images below after the description and we also have links to some new chapters of the Transformers Manga, thanks to Sabrblade.

Set contents: Half shell body x 1, Rifle (half shell) x 1, Sword (half shell) x 1, Shield (half shell) x 1, Sea Phantom body x 1, Gun (Sea Phantom) x 1, Sword (Sea) Phantom) x 1, Sea Lagon body x 1, Canon (Sea Lagon) x 2, Sword (Sea Lagon) x 1, Terramander (Body) x 1, Laser Rifle (Terramander) x 2, Beam Gun (Terramander) x 1, Sword (Terramander) × 1, skewer body × 1, gun (Scylla) × 2, sword (Scylla) × 1, fist for combining × 4, feet for combining × 2, instruction manual × 1

Over at the Hollywood Soapbox, the Soapbox crew got the chance to conduct an interview with the creative team for the upcoming Transformers / My Little Pony crossover event, which will run for 4 issues and, prior to the coronavirus pandemic, was set to come out next month. The creative team included in this round of interviews includes writers Ian Flynn and Sam Maggs, as well as artist Jack Lawrence.

You can check out the full interview by following the above link, and you can also read some snippets of the interview included below. Let us know what you think and let us know how excited you are for this crossover that will hopefully soon grace our comic book shelves!

Were you skeptical at first that My Little Pony and Transformers could come together for a comic book?

IAN FLYNN: Not skeptical, more like delightfully baffled. With a little bit of work and research, they came together surprisingly easily. It’s like mixing up your toy boxes and playing with everything.

SAM MAGGS: I thought the idea was both absolutely brilliant and absolutely bonkers. I pitched on it immediately.

.....

How difficult was it to have two artistic styles for this four-part series?

JACK LAWRENCE: I didn’t actually approach it as two artistic styles as such. It’s different characters as part of the same animated TV show like, say, Bobby interacting with Uni in the ’80s Dungeons & Dragons show. The two character types are built differently, but exist in the same world.

.....

What do you like about Twilight Sparkle as a character?

SAM MAGGS: I think I find Twilight Sparkle relatable, personally. She loves to read and learn and can get lost in books. But over the course of the series, she’s really come out of her shell, and that’s inspiring.

What do you think is the most appealing aspect of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series for its fans?

JACK LAWRENCE: I think everything about it is appealing. The characters and world designs are just so pleasing to the eye, which draws you in, but then it’s very, very funny at times — and the stories are really good. You don’t necessarily expect ‘epic’ from My Little Pony, but that’s what you get!

Transformers News: SDCC 2020 has officially been canceled due to COVID-19

The dramatic and unprecedented impact of the Coronavirus pandemic continues with its latest casualty. Earlier today, the organizers behind San Diego Comic-Con announced that this summer's SDCC 2020 event is canceled, which would be the first time ever in its 50 year history. The decision was made after recent statements by California's Governor as well as their monitoring of health advisories. As one can imagine, social distancing is very challenging at an event so large with hundreds of thousands of attendees from around the world.

Transformers News: SDCC 2020 has officially been canceled due to COVID-19

This marks the 2nd event that has been canceled for Transformers fans, the first being the unofficial fan-convention TFcon USA, which was canceled last month near the beginning of the pandemic here in the United States.

Over the past couple of decades, SDCC had become a tent pole event of the year for many pop-culture icons like the Transformers brand. With new product reveals, celebrity interviews and appearances, exclusive toys and comics, and so on, fans have clamored around this event year after year.

One could make the argument that the importance of SDCC for some pop-culture toy brands has become bigger than the annual New York Toy Fair, which happens annually in February.

While no Transformers exclusives had been announced for SDCC 2020, it is presumed that there were to be exclusives and it is assumed that those exclusives will most likely find another home online in order to get those products to consumers. We will keep you updated as further information becomes available.

Here is the direct message from the organizers of San Diego Comic-Con:

Comic-Con Announces Plans in Light of the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Current Situation Requires Exceptional Measures

For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020. The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021.

Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.

Similarly, WonderCon Anaheim, which was to have been held April 10-12, 2020 will return to the Anaheim Convention Center from March 26-28, 2021.

In addition to their conventions, Comic-Con has been planning a major renovation of Balboa Park’s Federal Building to be completed for the grand opening of the Comic-Con Museum in the summer of 2021. However, the COVID-19 situation has had an effect on those efforts as well. As such, they will be rephasing the Museum’s initially planned major renovations, but will not scale back the experience to be offered to visitors upon the Museum’s grand opening. They anticipate releasing building plans illustrating the Museum’s transformation and sharing more information about those efforts in the coming months.

SDCC also announced that individuals who purchased badges for Comic-Con 2020 will have the option to request a refund or transfer their badges to Comic-Con 2021. All 2020 badge holders will receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to request a refund. Exhibitors for Comic-Con 2020 will also have the option to request a refund or transfer their payments to Comic-Con 2021 and will also receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to process their request.

In the next few days onPeak, Comic-Con’s official hotel affiliate, will be canceling all hotel reservations and refunding all deposits made through them. There is no need for anyone who booked through onPeak to take any action, including trying to cancel their reservations online or contacting the company via phone as the process will be handled automatically. Those who booked rooms through onPeak will be notified when refunds have been completed.

"Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision," said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the organization. "We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy."


While this is a bummer, it was expected and is something that should have been canceled in lieu of the pandemic and the extreme importance of social distancing in order to defeat this virus. Until we can all get together again, stay safe and healthy my friends and fellow Seibertronians.
