    IDW Editor-In-Chief Chris Ryall has been busy on the IDW Forums lately.

    Something that will be of big news to Animated fans is that IDW will apparently start doing new (not screengrab) Animated comics. Here is what Ryall had to say about IDW's upcoming focus for the later part of the year.

    The official All Hail Megatron announcement should be coming by the end of the week. Ryall believes there should be a large reaction to whatever they have to reveal.

    He suggests the Focus on Decepticons book (with All Hail Megatron preview) will be out in two weeks (March 27th):

    Damn IDW, you're giving me a run for my money almost as much as Hasbro this year. . .

    Yeah some original story Animated comics would be nice, was quite dissapointed when it was revealed that all the current animated are is retelling of the toon episodes.

    I'm such a TF comics junkie. If it's a new storyline I have to read it. Great to see new stories will be coming for Animated. I turned to the TF Marvel comics for new stories after the G1 cartoon was cancelled and got hooked on comics for the past 20 years as a consequence. As long as IDW keeps going strong TFs will always get my comics budget priority.

    Yup, it's basically a preview special. Interviews, sketches, announcements and the aforementioned peek at AHM, which will run 8 pages!
