While it appears we're still a few weeks out from new Transformers comic books returning to the shelves with the scheduled June 17th (for now) release of Transformers #20, that hasn't stopped the resumption of solicitations for the coming months. Via IDW Publishing and Previews World, we have two solicitations for August to share with you below.

If you need a Transformers comics fix in the meantime, be sure to check out the Seibertron.com eBay store for a wide selection of new and vintage Transformers comics, as well as a selection of other popular comic books.

"We Have Deceived You." Cybertron has suffered. The world is in chaos. The situation on the ground truly is a crisis. Sentinel Prime, head senator and leader of the Autobots, will denounce the Ascenticons, the Rise, and anyone he thinks is an enemy of Cybertron's security. But to do it, he'll have to get through Senator Megatron first.

Will there even be any IDW staff left to continue these comics? The industry is in flux and IDW has laid off or furloughed a metric butt-ton of employees.

I'm also not confident IDW as a whole will survive the next year or two. The only best case scenario I can see is when they dissolve, Hasbro absorbs whatever staff it wants into a comic division of its own for all the properties it's invested in.

That would be awesome. I love the work IDW has done but I do not trust their management.

It could be a problem creatively if the Transformers comics are completely under Hasbro's control. Even now Hasbro largely controls them, but I have a feeling that if they start producing comics under the Hasbro banner with their own staff on payroll, we'll get nothing but book versions of Rescue Bots and Cyberverse. No comics with more adult-themed stories or art that isn't toned down to dull colors and has sharp edges.

That... would not be good. Character growth was the defining trait of IDW 1.0 and was hoping to see what would grow out of 2.0.

Can't tell if it is just me, but I feel like the solicit for the ongoing is the same as it has basically been for 3 issues in a row now

Well doesn't that pretty much describe the ongoing itself as well?
