IDW Publishing has shared a planned schedule for their various comic releases throughout the summer. As most of our readers are aware, shipments of new comic books stopped in late March due to world events, but have resumed as of last week. So far, none of the delayed Transformers comics set for late March, April or May release have made it out, but IDW has released a plan for when readers should expect these books. While it can possibly be assumed many of these are printed and waiting in a warehouse somewhere, we would also caution readers to expect that the schedule we've copied below could be subject to frequent changes with little-to-no notice, so be sure to check with your local comic shop before heading out on Wednesdays for the next few months if you have doubts about what's available.

A copy of IDW's announcement is below, followed by the dates for Transformers-related comic releases. You can see the full schedule of IDW Publishing comic releases on IDW's website.

Good to see they at least have a solid schedule planned, it shows that things are more or less getting back to normal. I was afraid this craziness would upend the comic business forever as far as actual physical books and stores go, so hopefully everyone involved can get back to work.

Guidi's art is still the best.
