On his online blog, IDW writer Simon Furman has sneaked in a mention of the title of the next story arc in IDW's ongoing G1 storyline. Following "Devastation", the first issue of which will be released this mothn, there will be "Revelation." And following that...well, hear it from the man himself:

Simon Furman :

Let’s just clarify: though I call it an ongoing it will continue to be broken up into 6-issue chunks, which to an extent are complete entities in and of themselves. So there’ll still be a gap between Devastation and Revelation, and then a gap between Revelation and Expansion (and so on). Oops, did I just give something away there?

I'm liking how each arc still ends in -ion. But maybe by the time we get to Expansion, all the -ion titles will be annoying.

Hmmm. Perhaps this means introducing new worlds for this particular story other than Earth? I dunno, I'm just thinking out loud here. But I really have to go comic shopping. I haven't bought a comic book all summer, so I have a bit of catching up to do for some series.......

From Spotlight Nightbeat:

"It is time."

"Agreed. The expansion will begin soon."

From Spotlight Galvatron:

"The expansion is upon us. No one can stop it. Not you, not I."

All this talk of expansion is very reminiscant of G2 with J'hiaxus and the cybertronians wanting to remoudl the universe into carbon copies of cybertron.

Nova Prime seemed to share the same sentiments, throw in the reference to j'hiaxus and I'm curious if we will see a storyline that ties into or at the very least plays a big homage to the Liege Maximo.

Unicron won't be appearing and I'm putting Liege Maximo down as the next most powerfull being after him that can be woven into IDW without any continuity problems but still leave fans excited.

So in under 2 years we've gone from Runabout and Runamuck being on earth, TFs all rather secret, annoying kid called verity, will this storyline keep me interested.....

To

Dead Universe...what is it, whats the relevance
Ore 13, all seeded by Shockwave who has been buried on earth the whole time
Thunderwing, he ties into the dead universe somewhat
Galvatron...not a reincatnation of Megatron
A prime prior to sentinel
Scorponoks machinations on earth with headmasters
Sixshots origins.

I am willing to eat humble pie and eagerly await the start of devastation to fill in more pieces of the puzzle

So they keep the "tion" sound, without actually using it... clever.

Could Expansion be hinting at a growing Decepticon/Dead Universe Empire?

I think so. I think that's what the quotes in waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaghlord's post refer to.

Waaaaghlord, apologies, I fell down a hole.
