Comics Continuum has posted IDW's solicitations for February. Here is what we can expect to see:

THE TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT: ARCEE

Written by Simon Furman, art and covers by Alex Milne.

Presenting the latest one-shot focusing on some of the best-loved (or loathed) characters from the Transformers Universe. The spotlight falls on Arcee, Autobot by allegiance but utterly mad, bad, and dangerous to know! Driven by personal demons, waging a war against an enemy that may only exist in her head, Arcee is considered too dangerous to ever be let loose. But desperate times call for desperate measures!

THE TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT VOLUME 2 TP

Written by Simon Furman, Stuart Moore and Nick Roche, art by Don Figueroa, Guido Guidi, Marcelo Matere, Robby Musso and Nick Roche.

IDW's one-shots focusing on the most celebrated Transformers characters continue in this second collection of Spotlights. This time around, see how and why Soundwave, Kup, Galvatron, Optimus Prime and Ramjet fit into the Transformers' ever-expanding IDW-verse. Simon Furman handles scripting duties on all but Kup, where Nick Roche tackles writing and illustrating duties.

136 pages, $19.99.

THE TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION #6

Written by Simon Furman, art by E.J. Su, covers by Su and Nick Roche.

The end is nigh ... and how! Shocks and revelations abound as the latest chapter of the new IDW Transformers saga draws to its conclusion. Earth's fate hangs in the balance, as the Reapers and Decepticons clash for the right to scribe its final hours, while a new and perhaps far deadlier foe orchestrates his own apocalyptic power play. Where are the Autobots in Earth's darkest hour? The answer will leave readers reeling.

32 pages, $3.99.

THE TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS: SOURCEBOOK #4

Written by Simon Furman and Ben Yee, art by Don Figueroa, Marcelo Matere, Robby Musso and Nick Roche, cover by Figueroa.

Furman and Yee conclude their all-encompassing, unifying resource book highlighting the characters, worlds and technology from all generations and incarnations of Beast Wars with the fourth volume of this informative collection. From Silverbolt to Waspinator, and featuring new art from a host of the greatest Transformers artists, this is the series that explains everything you need to know about the world of the Beast Wars!

48 pages, $7.49.

THE TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS: THE ASCENDING TP

Written by Simon Furman, art by Don Figueroa and Guido Guidi, cover by Figueroa.

Spiraling out of the events in Beast Wars: The Gathering. Magmatron, now a disembodied entity, existing out of time and space, is witness to Cyberton's unchecked descent into chaos and madness, all of which is a prelude to its complete and utter destruction! Powerless to directly affect this terrifying apocalypse, Magmatron's last desperate recourse is to try and bring his greatest enemy, Razorbest, together with fellow Maximals Lio Convoy and The Pack!

104 pages, $17.99.

Nice but the news page for this thread is actually in the past tense :P It says Feb 2007, which as we all know, was a good half a year ago.

Interesting, so between now & Feb I will have all The Ascending & all of the BW Sourcebooks? Great!

I was busy this morning. It was inevitable that some things would slip through the cracks.

Well IDW better get a move on their Beast Wars items then...

Looks like I will be poorer than normal over February.

Of course, it's not possible to get everything right all the time but you do a pretty good job even against probability. I wasn't complaining, I was just letting you know.

What's with the long span of time between Sourcebooks 3 and 4?

I'd like to think it is so they can go through and fix it up so it is nothing like the first 2 sourcebooks.

But it is probably so they can release it in a non Christmas period when people are more likely to have the time (and funds) to go and get them.

That would make sense.

Does Devastation #3 come out today?

It was originally supposed to be bi-monthly. I think the late release of #1 is screwing up people's understanding of when it's coming out. It seems like they're trying to maintain the original schedule despite all of the delays. However, i could be wrong. I havn't heard officially that it is still bi-monthly.
