Clear Video of IDW’s SDCC Presentation

For anyone unable to attend the San Diego Comic-Con this year (probably most of our readers), and disappointed by the fan made video coverage, IDW Editor Denton J. Tipton has posted a clear video of IDW’s powerpoint presentation, which shows previews and covers for All Hail Megatron #2 and #3, the covers for Spotlight: Blurr and Maximum Dinobots, the logo for Spotlight: Sideswipe and lots of toher bits of art.

SDCC 08: IDW’s Comic News

IDW had plenty of panels at last week’s San Diego Comic-Con, and announced some new titles coming in the next year.

Lots of art was shown for All Hail Megatron, Spotlight: Blurr and Simon Furman’s new series, Maximum Dinobot, a 5 issue series, which is previewed in the following image:

As far as new series, Transformers: The 13 will celebrate the 25th year by telling of the original 13 in another origin series. The series will be written by Simon Furman with involvement from Hasbro, which can be considered good or bad.

Continuing the Transformers movie universe, Transformers: Destiny will act as a prequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The 5 issue series will start in December 2008. Chris Mowry and Alex Milne will pair up again to produce the series. Simon Furman will work on the Transformers 2 adaptation.

Chris Ryall and Simon Furman were also interviewed by Comic Book Resources. BEWARE, there is a major spoiler for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

SDCC 08: Shane McCarthy Blog Updates

Shane McCarthy has updated his blog with news on some of IDW’s new Transformers books. A brand new character will be appearing in IDW’s All Hail Megatron series, called Drift. All that is needed is final confirmation from Hasbro.

Also on his blog is the cover for All Hail Megatron #4 by Trevor Hutchison. The simple design is meant to convey “sorrow, solitude and defeat”. The issue will be out in August.
