Simon Furman has been busy over the New Year period, again updating his blog, revealing many little tidbits of information on what we already knew to be coming up in the year 2008.

First off from me, a trio of Spotlights: Blaster, Arcee and Grimlock. All feed into the main ‘ongoing’ storyline to greater or lesser extents, with all three characters having scores to settle or something to prove (or both). Arcee is perhaps the most pivotal, but Blaster has definite repercussions, as does Grimlock, which in and of itself leads into one of my main IDW/TF projects for 08.

Furman also hints at which direction the upcoming main books will be travelling:

And, of course, there’s Revelation itself, the fourth (fifth including Stormbringer) arc in the IDW/TF-verse, as the Dead Universe storyline that’s been bubbling under for a while now explodes into (un)life!

Add to that a hint of the upcoming summer story:

There’s also a series that goes back to a time before anything we’ve seen so far in the new IDW/TF-verse, one that will underpin the entire Infiltration/Escalation/Devastation/Revelation continuity.

and finally add to all the IDW Transformers work; Titan UK Transformers stories alongside other works such as Torchwood, Dr Who and TMNT stories and you have one busy writer.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what's in store. The IDWniverse is pretty cool, and it sounds like it's only going to get better!

Furman on Torchwood should be "interesting." I'm not sure yet if it's a good interesting or a bad interesting, but either way it should be something to see.

For those who haven't heard of the series, it's an "adult" spin off of Doctor Who. The first episode of the show, for example, featured an alien who got its life energies from experiencing orgasms (causing its mates to self-combust).

Yeah.

Yeah.

Sounds like a normal Japanese hentai movie.

WHAT CHANCE THEN DO WE HAVE?!


I imagine Doctor Who, and I imagine Furmanisms.

If Jack says "I never wanted to live forever anyways", oh, that would be such irony.
