Is it possible once the Animated TV show ends, the story will continue as a comic?

    I hope it does.

    The end of the TV show doesn't have to be the end of the whole of Animated.

    I'd certainly buy more Animated comics if thats the way it went.

    Oh, I'd totally welcome this move. IDW and Titan's Animated comics have been sources of great stories.

    I would hope so but have Marcelo do the art. Not a fan of the Boo's work.

    Likely? No.

    Why, Kickback? Do you have some more insider info you can't share yet?

    I would think IDW would take advantage of doing another TFA mini in the fall or something to help fill in the "downtime" after all the movie mini-series.
    But then they may have something else planned entirely, like more BW. Who knows?

    We at least need IDW to give us US reprints of the Titan stuff.

    No. It just isn't that likely IMO.

    There needs to be enough demand for the comic. And I don't think "The Arrival" sold that well.

    IDW could have kept Animated going with the comic. They chose not to.

    EDIT: And to add to it, it's not like IDW can just do whatever they want. Hasbro has to sign off on EVERYTHING they do. If the idea is to go movie-focused, then I doubt Hasbro will want anything non-movie going except possibly G1 just for the sales.

    Well, to be fair, the Animated miniseries was probably approved and scripted as a mini.

    I think it's still a possibility that it could be done - it's just that IDW probably isn't that interested right now. There's the G1 continuity, the ROTF stuff, and that nebulous thing that is The Thirteen which we keep hearing IS coming (and Hasbro seems to want it done)

    It's coming.

    It just ties in to the movie apparently. So you can't release it until the movie is out.

    One can only hope. But I'm not betting on it...yet!

    I love Boo's work. I would hope he continued to contribute.
