    I picked up BW #4 today after work and on the letters page was the news:

    1) There will be another miniseries! This fall, from Don and Simon (assuming they survive Stormbringer, cute)

    2) There will be BW profile books! "Simon and Ben Yee will be handling the text," made me happy to read. This project will be in good hands.

    edit: Just saw this was announced in the comics forum, but I think it's newsworthy enough for TN&R. Move if need be.

    Yup, read that too- sounds GREAT. Can't wait, especially after the first miniseries ending. Definitely whets your appetite.

    Sounds AWESOME!

    Still need to pick up Beast wars #4. Victoria wanted me to spend time with her all day... couldn't get to the comic shop.

    ...not that I'm complaining...

    wooO! I just picked up and read number four yesterday. It was a very good miniseries and I'll continue to buy it if it continues again.

    Ben Yee's involvement is all the cred I needed to see on the profile books. That will ensure quality bios. I didn't see a list of artists. Josh, you doing coloring for this?

    I think the profile books are BW only. It's the only one in desperate need, IMHO. It had the smallest show cast, so tons of toys only had the Tech Specs for characterisation.

    Ben had Script Consultant credit on BW#4 as well.

    Anybody else remember when his site was beastwars.com?

    Ben Yee has a bit of information on the subject at bwtf.com's message boards.

    Great news so far! I'm really looking forward to seeing this BW profiles book.

    This is good news. Don is the master. I hope they do a comic explain how the beast machines started.

    Good news.. I love the BW comic series.. I wish they would do some two-issue mini stories with the BW, BWII, and Neo casts.. Make it a little off shoot story from the cartoons.

    Excellent news indeed, but I guess it was a given that BW would get a followup mini. The profiles book is a nice suprise. :)
