No More Beast Wars Comics For Now

Written by Big Bot on November 28, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags:

Bad news people, after two Beast Wars comics series and a set of sourcebooks, it seems we will not be getting any more for the foreseeable future. Editor Denton J. Tipton has posted the announcement on the IDW forums, but didn’t give a reason. Most likely it is due to the large number of comics planned for 2009, with lots Revenge of the Fallen comics coming.

I’m sorry to report that there are no Beast Wars minis planned for the near future.

At least this gives me time to complete my Beast Wars story.

Reign of Starscream TPB Preview + December Comic Release Dates

Tomorrow sees the release of Transformers: The Reign of Starscream, the official sequel comic to the Transformers film, which also acts as a link to the Revenge of the Fallen prequel comics.

Also on his blog is an updated schedule of IDW’s Transformers releases for the coming weeks. We already knew that All Hail Megatron #5 was coming next week, but we now know what is coming after it.
