Simon Furman has again updated his blog, this time with information pertaining to upcoming changes to the Titan Transformers Magazine.

The changes are being made to make things less confusing for "younger readers who wanted to see the trucks and cars and jets from the movie proper." Furman has stated that:

Issues #7-12’s lead stories really had to be Earth-based. The question was, how? Where? Given the limitations (sequel in the works, more IDW movie-based stories to come in all likelihood), the stories couldn’t just ‘continue’ on after the end of the movie without possible story contradictions ensuing (later). So, we decided to squeeze our next batch of stories into the very tail end of the movie, exploiting the ‘unseen’ time between the end of the battle in L.A. and the sort of epilogue scenes.

The rest of the blog update refers to spoilers about Magazine Issue #7, and announces that relative Newcomer Simon Williams will be doing the art for Issue #7.

A story inside the story is a good way to go whit this predicament.

Still, I don't see how he can drag this out for 2 years before having to break out the "Its another universe" speal as TF2 eventualy contradicts something they come up with.

I'm not knocking the effort, but time vs source makes it hard to avoid this.

I seem to remember that Simon was taken in to confidence on the first movie at a very early stage. If the same happens with this movie then he is going to know the basic plot outline within the next couple of months. This should mean that we get reasonable continuity between these stories and the second film.

I'm wondering that too... there are only so many issues that can plug gaps in or before the movie's plot. I don't know why the comic isn't just treated as a separate entity. Kids aren't going to worry about continuity, surely?
