Comics Continuum: IDW Publishing for February
uhh wait, I thought Generation One vol 3 was coming out in February? and what is the WWI omnibus?
Don't know about G1 Volume 3. Regarding the WWI Omibus, I'm guessing it's likely a collection of all published War Within comics from the 3 (err....2 and a half) volumes.
G1 vol 3 is due in March, with the Beast Wars Omnibus.
The WW Omnibus is likely to be only the first 2 volumes. The Amazon description mentions "12 part series".
Who is Obominus? I don't remember him.
It's Tim Formas's addition to the G1 universe, he won a contest to create a new character back in 2004. Cool eh?
That may or may not be true.
Sweet! What did I win? Refresh my memory.
Damn if I knew that was coming out I wouldn't have spent twice as much on the first 2 volumes :/
Ah thanks! Last I checked it was Febraury guess they moved it back.
I thought Animated was going to continue past six issues? That's been my favorite read for a couple of months now!
Maybe the "Ation" series will get some resolution in the Maximum Dinobots
A few months ago, Furman said he knew people were not going to be happy with the way things turned out in Revelations (It was supposed to be a 6-issue series leading into The Expansion... until AHM was put into continuity). He hoped that one day he would be able to tell a modified version of what he originally planned, so until that day came, he would be keeping his cards close to his chest.
I believe after Maximum Dinobots he's off IDW's G1 series (which McCarthy has taken over) and will be instead writing The Thirteen and Revenge of the Fallen's adaptation.
A rather unceremonious dumping of one of the biggest contributors to the TF mythos. He has his faults, but you can't question his contribution. IDW are taking a BIG risk...
Man, I cannot. Freaking. WAIT. Until the movie miniseries...es.... come out. I loved Reign of Starscream so much.
Unfortunately, no, it was always planned to be a miniseries. That doesn't mean they won't do another miniseries later, though, since this first miniseries IS subtitled "The Arrival", after all.
The Swarm? Badass! I just read All Hail #4 and enjoyed it a lot, and it sounds as though the final act is going to kick into a higher gear if that thing is appearing.
"The crisis on Cybertron escalates as the Autobots are in a race for their lives against the Swarm! Could this be it? It's a pulse-pounding issue as the identity of the traitor is finally revealed and not all of the Autobots survive the experience."
Knowing McCarthy, "The Swarm" is a bunch of Insecticon clones. I'd be really surprised if he'd use anything "furmanesque".
Omnibus is a bummer. Darn Pat Lee, why won't he finally sell the rights of TWW vol. 3 to IDW? I WANT to know the end of that story! What happened to Prime? What were the Quints after? What about Flash? ARgh.
Swarm, eh? Good thing Nightbeat's already dead.
Seriously? yet ANOTHER story Furman doesn't get to take to it's conclusion in the manner he intended? lame, lame, lame.
I'd be more incensed if i was actually reading it...
Are IDW's reprints of DW's Generation 1 Vol. 1 & 2 TPBs easy to come by on eBay or Amazon?
I think that after The Thirteen comes out I'm going to drop IDW like a rock.
They had such potential. So sad.
