Simon Furman has once again updated his blog, this time with many hints and teasers about the upcoming Beast Wars: the Ascending Issue #4, to be released Wednesday the 9th of January.

In his short recap Furman discusses Guido Guidi and his efforts on the art side, after replacing Don Figueroa who left the series at after issue #3, and a brief recap of the issue.

Furman concludes his synopsis with a cryptic clue...

Suffice it to say, the action starts on page 1 and doesn’t stop until page 22. And inbetween there’s triumph, torment and tragedy aplenty. No one is guaranteed to survive (and many don’t) and no happy endings are assured. In fact, as so often happens, the ending is also a beginning. Those who know their Beast Wars will be pleased the final scenes on page 22 (I hope!).

There are spoilers aplenty in this blog update, especially for those who may have not kept up to date with the series, so consider yourselves forewarned.

Furman also has a link to Don Figueroa's cover for Issue #4, which you can also see below:

Does anyone know how this Ascending story fits in with 'Reaching the Omega Point' saga? Does it completely ignore RtOP or is part of the same universe?

No, it's not. Though some fans, like me, would like to see it very much so.

No one is guaranteed to survive (and many don’t) and no happy endings are assured.


Something tells me these words may end up being more prophetic than Simon can understand.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Could we see Beast Machines comics, or at least events that tie directly into Beast Machines?"

I would like to see some stories about The Pack and whatnot being on Cybertron as BW Megatron lands and starts to take over. Not sure it'll ever happen due to the mainly negative connotations that Beast Machines carries to many fans.

Judging from how Ascending ended, I think that's what we'll see in the next volume of BW.

I'm up w/ that!
