Written by Big Bot on September 15, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: , ,

December looks like being a good end to the year for Transformers comic fans with 6 releases from a verity of stories and continuities.

First up is Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen Movie Prequel: Destiny: Alliance #1, which wins the award for longest title ever. This is the first of 8 issues that will connect the first film to the sequel.

The Transformers: Maximum Dinobots #1 is Simon Furman’s continuation of his IDW story, following on from Spotlight: Grimlock, but this time featuring all the Dinobots. The Transformers: All Hail Megatron #6 concludes the first half of the Shane McCarthy written series.

Transformers Animated: Arrival #5 is the final issue in the series based within the cartoon universe, and given the positive reaction to the series, expect more in the future.

The Transformers: Best of the UK: Time Wars #5 completes the reprint from the Marvel UK story of the same name.

Finally, there is Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Vol. 2 TPB, which is a reprint of the second half of Dreamwave’s MTMTE series from 2003.

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.
