Newsarama have posted a report on the IDW Panel discussion at the San Diego Comic Con last weekend. The article covers the entire spectrum of what IDW Publishing do, here's what they had to say about forthcoming Transformers comic books:

Aaron Archer, the front man for Hasbro, says that the Transformers book will be supportive of the live action film that is set for release on July 4, 2007. Clarifying, Ryall told Newsarama: “The movie is a good two years away, so we’re got a nice window to establish our stuff beforehand, so we can establish our world, and do our own thing before the movie gets here. Since we’re doing the kind of ‘Ultimates’ approach, where we’re re-telling things from scratch, we’re hoping that it will appeal for movie fans who might find all the continuity of the previous series a little daunting.”

Elaborating on their relationship with IDW, Archer said that there will be complete collaboration between IDW and Hasbro. IDW will present scripts and artwork to the company prior to publish, though Archer did not discuss whether IDW was contractually obligated to do so. Along with the regular Transformers series, IDW will publish Beast Wars, beginning in January. The miniseries will be written by Simon Furman.
