IDW Publishing on Wednesday announced Tranformers: All Hail Megatron, a 12-issue mini-series that launches in July.

Set one year after the events of Transformers: Devastation, Transformers: All Hail Megatron launches a new storyline that shows what happens when great heroes aren't around to defend against their powerful villains. The Decepticons, led by Megatron, have somehow succeeded in dispatching the Autobots and their leader, Optimus Prime, leaving Earth ripe for the plucking.

All Hail Megatron is written by Shane McCarthy, with art by Guido Guidi.

"This thing is going to knock the fans' socks off," McCarthy said. "This is exactly the kind of story I've always wanted to see done, and I think the fans will be right there with me."

IDW's publisher/editor-in-chief Chris Ryall said, "All Hail Megatron is what the Autobots fought so hard to prevent, the ultimate culmination of Megatron's plans. It's destruction on a grand scale; it's a story of sacrifice, lost heroism, betrayal, and hopefully at the end, renewal.

"But this series, more than any other we've done, shows that hopes don't amount to much in the face of unrelenting evil. Shane's story hearkens back to the greatest stories in Transformers history, while still feeling vibrant and excitingly new. And the best part is the accessibility of the tale makes this a perfect jumping-on spot for new fans of good comics, along with long-time followers of Transformers."

Transformers: All Hail Megatron #1 will feature a victorious Megatron cover by Klaus Scherwinski, as well as a variant cover by Trevor Hutchison.

SciFi Channel announced two comics-inspired projects and a Battlestar Galactica spin-off on Tuesday night at its upfront presentation in New York.

* Mike Carey's The Stranded, a comic-book title under the SciFi/Virgin Comics imprint that launched in January, will be developed as a two-hour pilot.

Here's how SciFi describes The Stranded:

"Five seemingly everyday people must face the terrifying question: what if your entire life -- your childhood, your family, your memories -- was a lie? For the stranded, Sisera, Endo, Drum, Tamree, and Cullen, it's true. Each of them is from another world called Standfire, and now their past is returning to try and kill them."

"From day one," Carey said, "working on The Stranded has felt like being at a nexus point of creativity. Virgin and SciFi created the perfect platform, and then supported the book and the creative team through all the stages of development. This feels like something we all own, and we all love. I can't wait to take it forward into its next incarnation."

* True Believer is another two-hour pilot, based on an original concept from Rosario Dawson, David Atchison, Matthew Spradlin and Tom Feister. Dawson and Atchison collaborated on Image Comics' Occult Crimes Taskforce.

Here's how SciFi describes the project:

"True Believer is a quirky, contemporary dramedy about a 20-something comic book nerd who hires a washed-up real-life Superhero to be his crime-fighting sidekick and teach him the ropes. Together, this unlikely duo set out to save the World."

Atchison and Spradlin are writing and will join Dawson as executive producers.

* Production has been greenlit on Caprica, a two-hour Battlestar backdoor pilot prequel from executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Production on Caprica is slated to begin in Vancouver this spring.

"We couldn't be more excited to see this long-anticipated project get off the ground. It's an amazing script, and, though clearly inspired by the Battlestar mythology, it is not just a pale spin-off. This is a smart, thought-provoking, emotional, and compelling character drama in its own right," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming.

"I'm thrilled with the chance to expand on the Galactica world and get deeper into the origins of the story we've been telling," said Moore. "It's also great to have a chance at doing a completely different kind of science fiction series, one that's even more character-oriented and doesn't rely on pyrotechnics to carry the story."

How's how SciFi describes Caprica:

"Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families -- the Greystones and the Adamas -- as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies. Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe. Caprica will deliver all of the passion, intrigue, political backbiting, family conflict and hardcore action that always leaves Galactica fans begging for more."
