Simon Furman has posted some new information on IDW's Beast Wars - The Ascending on his blog. Lots of little hints at what we can look forward to in the new mini. - more Cybertron than we saw in The Gathering, we're going to get a feel for how the planet really works in the Beast era. - more on what's going on with Razorbeast and Ravage on Earth, as well as Magmatron's fate. - The Ascending will have more than an occasional nod to the Japanese shows and characters. - Profile Books are done, co-written by Ben Yee of bwtf.com, they cover everything from the US shows, Japanese shows, and even store (and convention?) exclusives. - Both series are four issue minis, due out around August or September. - Don is doing the art for The Ascending.
