    "We Have Deceived You." Cybertron has suffered. The world is in chaos. The situation on the ground truly is a crisis. Sentinel Prime, head senator and leader of the Autobots, will denounce the Ascenticons, the Rise, and anyone he thinks is an enemy of Cybertron's security. But to do it, he'll have to get through Senator Megatron first.

    If issue #4 comes out in August, does that mean issue #1 still comes out this month? I hope so, very much looking forward to '84 and that undoubtly gorgeous Guido art. Hopefully IDW and Diamond can make it happen!

    I’m so confused. If this takes place 4 million years ago, then Grimlock should be in the tar pit with the other Dinobots and Shockwave. The Megatron thing is obviously supposed to be a plot point.

    because furman. Do you really think continuity is going to stand in the way of him using only his favorites?

    Interesting that COVID-19 hasn’t prevented new issues from the main series being released, and yet Galaxies has been affected.

    It’ll be interesting to see how much chaos is occurring within Cybertron, and what Megatron will do when he’s face to face with Sentinel Prime...

    How reliable are their dates at the moment though?
    Looking at the release dates of all four issues, the release dates are either wrong, or earlier issues that were put on hold aren't being printed until after the comic issues are printed that were originally scheduled for June....

    Issue 3 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 2 - July 1 (originally for May)
    Issue 1 - July 15 (originally for April)
    Issue 4 - August 12 (probably originally meant to be out in July)
    .

    Okay, so I had a bit of spare time on my hands, and looked up all of the Transformers comics currently delayed, and have put them all here together...

    Looking through the Previews/Diamond site, these are the "current" release dates for the Transformers comics that had been delayed from (mostly) April.

    Note that a number of comics planned for June are still coming out in June, sometimes before the issues that were scheduled for April and May.

    Transformers (ongoing)
    Issue 20 - June 17 (originally for April)
    Issue 21 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 22 - August 12 (originally for June)
    Issue 23 - August 26 (probably originally meant for July)

    Transformers 84
    Issue 3 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 2 - July 1 (originally for May)
    Issue 1 - July 15 (originally for April)
    Issue 4 - August 12 (probably originally meant for July)

    Transformers 84 100 page 1-shot - June 24 (originally scheduled for June)

    Transformers Galaxies
    Issue 10 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 8 - June 24 (originally for April)
    Issue 9 - June 24 (originally for May)
    Issue 7 - July 8 (originally for March but was already late)
    (no Issue 11 listed, which should have been in the August listings, but this series was already running behind)

    My Little Pony & Transformers
    Issue 1 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 2 - July 22 (originally for May)
    Issue 3 - September 9 (originally for May)
    Issue 4 - October 7 (originally for May)

    Transformers Vs Terminator
    Issue 4 - June 24 (originally for June)
    Issue 2 - June 24 (originally for April)
    Issue 3 - August 19 (originally for May)
    .

    IDW's books were running late as hell before the Pandemic. Most of the other comic publishers have updated their releases schedules for all of their other books before they released their August solicits. IDW seems to have jumped the gun to release August's solicits before cleaning up their other books release dates.

    Twenty three issues... nearly 2 years in.... and they're STILL talking, talking, talking (and probably walking up stairs) about denouncing the Ascenticon movement? I know there has to be some build up, but COME ON. This is ridiculously slow paced. Sidney Sheldon tells shorter stories!

    Guido posted this #4 cover on Facebook, and Simon Furman commented there that he thinks issue #1 is now scheduled for June. That's the most realistic release date I've heard so far at least ;)
