In the interest of keeping everyone informed on what is happening, all relevant titles have been mirrored below, with covers and synopses, and of course, steer away from the latter if you're trying to avoid some spoilers!

So, James Roberts indicated on Twitter that those wishing to avoid spoilers should avoid the Lost Light cover above.

That guy looks awfully Tyrest-y.

I hope with TAAO, it's just another break, or they didn't have a solicit ready. TAAO is the most involving TF book out right now.

NOTE: The IDW solicits folder I get material from is currently still empty (8pm UTC+2). This was an exclusive announcement for FoG. There may still be covers and comics to be announced between today and tomorrow.

while First Strike is going to be strike 3 I'm out for these larger crossover events, I am super stoked for ROM v. Transformers. Revolutionaries has been a very enjoyable series, and this series has promise to it. Really looking forward to it

I just realized that Mairghread Scott was writing this event/series. Perhaps TAAO is taking a short break while she does this. It would make sense.....timewise, Till All Are One is months ahead of the other two books. OP's narrative doesn't start until AFTER TAAO #8, which only came out last month. Lost Light is not really connected to the other two time-wise, so far. That would allow the narratives to catch up and essentially be happening concurrently.

A very good point to make, thank you!

Just checked folder again, no updates on what we have so far.

Oh, IDW scheduling and book restarts; you do slay me. I love these books more than any other fiction right now but things like this do start to make me wonder about IDW as a company...
