Furman Talks Beast Wars Ascending, Profile Book Deets

Simon Furman has posted on his blog to share some information from two Beast Wars-related IDW Publishing books: the upcoming second volume mini-series subtitled "The Ascending," and the profile books. Mr. Furman is unsure of when the release of the Beast Wars profile books, but speculates sometime in August or September to fall in-line with the release of the volume 2 mini-series. It was announced by IDW's Editor-In-Chief Chris Ryall that "The Ascending" would ship sometime in August.

Mr. Furman gives a "script-wrap digression," also known as a teaser, of the first issue of the four-issue mini-series. We can "expect a whole lot more Cybertron than in The Gathering," as well as "a good look in on the planetary status quo, focusing on the overall command structure/hierarchy and special groups such as ‘The Pack.’"

He also hints that there will be a new "big bad" villain to the book and give updates on how Razorbeast, Ravage, and the rest of the Maximals and Predacons are doing. Also revealed in this issue will be the ultimate fate of Cybertron and the revelation of what happened to Magmatron, all pencilled by Don Figueroa.

Mr. Furman also says that the four-issue Beast Wars profile book, which he co-wrote with BWTF.com's Ben Yee, will begin around the same time as the new volume for the mini-series begins. This book will include every single character ever introduced in the Beast Wars continuity, including the U.S. and Japanese series, and the toy-only releases.
