Ever since the announcement of the end of the current line of IDW Transformers comics with the Unicron miniseries, a question that has been on the minds of fans is “what next”? We’ve had a taster of what is in store with projects including the Bumblebee “Win if you dare” one shot and the Star Trek vs Transformers miniseires around the corner, but those are but side stories. So far, we’ve heard very little of what IDW intends to do on the main comic series.
Today, we’ve got a bit more of a hint. Talking to ICv2, IDW president Greg Goldstein mentions when asked about “what’s coming up that you’re excited about for the rest of the year or early next year”, he responds in part with “Our Transformers reboot for 2019 is going to be great.”
So there you have it, right from the mouth of the president and publisher of IDW itself. We’re going to be seeing new Transformers comics from the publisher, indeed, a whole new continuity by the sounds of things, in 2019. We’d imagine it’ll be an early 2019 launch – potentially as early as January 2019 to ride what is hopefully going to be a positive wave generated by December’s Bumblebee movie.
All things considered, the most likely venue for us to find out more is going to be the New York Comic Con in early October – watch this space.
