IDW Publishing will launch a new core Transformers comic on a biweekly schedule in March.  The series will be written by Brian Ruckley, with art by Angel Hernandez and Ron Joseph.  The story will center on a time when Cybertron begins a spiral into chaos after the mysterious end of a single life.  It will be told through the eyes of young Bumblebee and his friends.

The new series will attempt to bridge the gap between new and existing fans, according to Hasbro Vice-President of Global Publishing Michael Kelly.  "We are excited to begin a tale that will be accessible and appealing to readers unfamiliar with Transformers lore, while still providing the depth and drama that our long-time fans expect," he said.

The first issue will feature variant covers by Gabriel Rodriguez, Angel Hernandez, Casey W. Coller, and Freddie E. Williams II; the second issue will feature covers by Nelson Daniel, Ron Joseph, and Jeffrey Veregge.
