IDW Publishing have shared plans for both new mini-series and the existing ongoings via Screen Rant, with the highlight being a new fantasy mini-series starring everyone's favorite robot dinosaur, King Grimlock.

Screen Rant wrote:Screen Rant has exclusively learned details of a new miniseries from IDW's upcoming line of comics called Transformers: King Grimlock. The new comic will be written by Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman), with art by Agustin Padilla (Dungeons & Dragons), and colors from Jeremy Colwell (The Bequest). The miniseries will combine Transformers and fantasy, following the Dinobot Grimlock in an "epic barbarian fantasy" where the savage world is ruled by who's strongest with the sword. Check out Cary Nord's 1A cover (Conan The Barbarian) and Mateus Santolouco's retailer incentive (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder in Hell) covers for the series below. Padilla will provide the 1B cover for issue one.

The news didn't stop there, as confirmation is now received that the Shattered Glass comics packaged with the toys available on Hasbro Pulse will receive a wide release as well. This series will be written by Danny Lore, with art provided by Guido Guidi and Dan Khanna while John-Paul Bove provides colors. Issue 1's Alex Milne cover was shared as well and is mirrored below.

Out ahead of Friday's solicitations, more information on the next entry in the ongoing Beast Wars series was shared, with issue 7 set to start out a possible parade of protoforms arriving on Earth with the introduction of Blackarachnia. Fico Ossio's A cover was shared, along with news that Winston Chan will provide art for issues 7 and 8 rather than Josh Burcham.

Finally, in the news two of you were waiting for, the Brian Ruckley Transformers ongoing will, somehow, keep going. Issue 34 allegedly arrives in August and starts a "Sea of Rust" arc that promises Megatron and Termagax arguing over some kind of macguffin, which as spoiled by the cover below (featuring art by Winston Chan) is the Enigma of Combination.

Color me interested in king grimlock O_o seems right up my alley. Provided something actually happens in the book other then lots of talking and walking, like some OTHER books right now. But then, Grim isn't known for long winded speeches and waxing poetic.

Its too bad the title "Dungeons and Dinobots" has already been coined. This looks like a really fun premise though

not a fan of orlando but at the very LEAST king grimlock has piqued my interest as its essentially IDW doing a conan book with it and is the type of risk taking with the franchise ive missed.

though being modern IDW im still not sure it wont be all walking in forests up and down hills.

shattered glass could be fun but i know bugger all about the author

STILL see nothing in the ongoing to bring me back. hope the 2 reading it are enjoying it :D

Yeah hopefully that was done as an homage and not a blatant ripoff. Good cover, though.

As for the Grimlock book, I'm definitely interested, even if I don't care for magic and fantasy much. But I guess Transformers can fit into that category as well, looking at it from a certain point of view. I'm just glad it's not written by Brian Ruckley, a book starring Grimlock should be faster paced and heavy on action.

So we're paying like an average of $8 more for the shattered glass figures because we get what as I recalled was an exclusive comic and now they are releasing said comic to retail.

Well, that feels a bit like a kick to the face.

I think the toy pack-ins have exclusive covers or something.
