Be warned that there are many slight spoilers over the future of IDW's Transformers comics, without any names or plotlines being revealed.
On Page 6 Ryall discloses that Simon Furman is not leaving IDW:
Is Simon leaving us? Oh, no. I would never want to lose Simon, and he's got lots of things planned for this year and next. Will the Revelations arc be the very end of this entire storyline? Well, no.
Next up Ryall discusses the "All Hail Megatron series:
We'll likely announce details of All Hail Megatron by week's end (and show two amazing images from it. Plus I'll no doubt show more in my blog). I expect that announcement to rock things quite a bit, so it'll be fun to let the initial reaction to that settle, get the Focus On in everyone's hands.
Before going on to tease us with:
there's no mandate to focus on the movie--we'll have some nice G1, movie, and Animated comics to come, so all areas will be nicely represented.
Ryall then goes on to say that we had all be ready for the introduction of "Trevor Hutchison", someone who we cannot find by google searching.
To close Ryall then confirms in a later post that "Focus on the Decepticon's" will be available within the next fortnight.
But wait, there's more! In another IDW Forum thread Ryall discloses even more hints about the future of IDW Transformers comics:
The general direction is bad-assery. The general direction will also become more clear after we announce All Hail Megatron.
The G1 continuity will still be the most prominent of all the lines, but the movie continuity and the Animated will also be represented (with new comics, not just the screengrab books). Something for everyone.
The BW universe isn't dead at all. We'll do more.
And to close, Shane McCarthy, writer of the "All Hail Megatron" series will be joining in with Chris Ryall in an upcoming Q&A session sometime in the not too distant future.

Damn it. Well, if they do do more, here’s hoping that Furman does a better job than he did on The Ascending.
