I think I should point out that the first issue will retell "Transform and Roll Out" from different perspectives.

Won't just be a rerun of the episode in comic form. :)

We'll get to see more of what was going on with the Cons and, as that script preview shows, other Autobots.

It's exactly what I wanted! Now I don't have to feel guilty for not collecting all the screen cap digests!

So I gather this new series will be full comic size also? I can't wait!

Nice, this sounds good.

Now will this series be in-continuity with the show, or will it be its own universe like the past comics?

I believe it is to be fully in continuity, but don't quote me on it.

Nice! The Animated series has grown on me more and more since the first ep. and i might have to start stopping at the comic shop again. I like the best of both worlds comics/series and when they intertwine. Very cool!

I just wanted to point out that during IDW's Friday Botcon panel, Denton stated Marcelo Matere will be the cover artist for the series and a Brazillian artist named Dario Brizuela, who has worked on projects for Johnny DC and Marvel Adventures, will provide the interior artwork.

And some clarification may be needed, but I believe it was explained that the cover seen On Denton's blog was originally promo art drawn by Marcelo for Hasbro. When IDW saw the art they loved it so much they convinced Hasbro to allow them to use it as a cover. There is also a "mirrored" image of the Animated Decepticons facing the Autobots that goes along with the image we've already seen. Both images were used as standees placed near Hasbro's toy cases at Botcon.


*Edit*

Here's a pic I took of the Autobot standee.

And I didn't get a good pic of the Decepticon standee, but you can see it on the far right side of this pic.
