The following "rumors" have come to light on the topic of the Bench Press Transformers comics. Bench Press has put their comics on hold indefinitely while Hasbro talks to Marvel Comics about taking on the license once more. Whether this would be for the Beast Wars comic only is still unclear.
Another source is claiming that Behnch Press never actually had the license and it was more wishful thinking. I'm sure that Bench Press were in discussion with Hasbro, but they have now opted to use Marvel instead.
Although this would of course prevent some wonderful titles from Bench Press, it would allow the Transformers story to continue in the correct continuity if Marvel does get the deal. Will Simon Furman write them though? This is the question on everyone's lips.
Hasbro says they have no "preview" information available. It does sound like Marvel will be printing the comics if they do ever come out.
Editor's Note (2003): This is actual news that was swirling around the Internet before the big Transformers sites existed like transfandom.com, tfw2005.com, tformers.com, and SEIBERTRON.com.
