The [email protected] IDW in 2020 and Beyond panel is now available for your viewing here, with Beast Wars anticipation high since mention of a new incoming comics series during IDW’s Future of Comics… Today! [email protected] 2020 Panel.
With no specific mention of Beast Wars, several Transformers-relevant points made by Editor-in-Chief John Barber and outgoing President, Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall included (edited for length and clarity):
- Planning out a number of different future focus points, including the current Brian Ruckley Transformers (2019) series
- Hasbro has some really cool plans for where Transformers is going in the next few years
- IDW will be pushing Transformers into directions that we haven’t really seen before, trying to reach new audiences
- Knowing how much the characters mean to fans of a wide international range of ages and backgrounds, getting to know those fans and introducing more people to Transformers are among Barber’s favorite things about working on the comics
