IDW Publishing has announced a December launch for Transformers: Escape, a five-issue monthly series from writer Brian Ruckley and artist Bethany McGuire-Smith.

Here's how IDW describes the series:

"As Cybertron descends into a state of war, countless civilians -- unaligned with the Autobots, Decepticons or any faction -- are caught in the crossfire. Fortunately, a solution may be coming, as Wheeljack, Hound, Nautica, and some of Cybertron's greatest (and most infamous) scientists seek to reactivate the Ark program and evacuate the planet with huge spaceships. On the verge of war, will their efforts be enough to escape?"

"Escape's a cocktail of what I love most about Transformers, with some of my favorite characters and a few surprise guest-stars caught up in a pretty epic escalation," Ruckley said. "I've always thought it would be a pretty terrifying, bewildering experience for aliens -- non-Cybertronians -- to be caught between warring factions of big transforming robots. Wefre exploring the question: Who are the most dangerous Cybertronians of all?"

"I'm excited to be working on this awesome chapter in the Transformers storyline," McGuire-Smith said. "From the perspective of Hound and Wheeljack, we will see what matters most when so many lives are on the line... and whom they can really trust as multiple threats rise."

"From the launch in 2019, the Transformers universe that's unfolded in the ongoing series and in Transformers: Galaxies has been about showing Cybertronians from exciting new perspectives," said editor David Mariotte. "That's why we're thrilled to have Brian Ruckley and Beth McGuire-Smith reuniting to dig into the lives of faces both new and familiar as war breaks out and how they respond to the other inhabitants of Cybertron."

The first issue will feature covers by McGuire-Smith, Winston Chan, Sara Pitre-Durocher and Alex Milne.


BLADE RUNNER: Titan Comics has announced a Dec. 16 launch for Blade Runner 2020, the continuation of the series that began with Blade Runner 2919.

The series is written by Michael Green and Mike Johnson, with art by Andres Guinaldo and colors by Marco Lesko.

Here's how Titan describes the book:

Following the dramatic events of the first arc, Blade Runner 2029 sees an emotionally changed Ash back with the LAPD's Blade Runner division and once again on the streets hunting renegade Replicants. She finds her loyalties and humanity challenged by two Replicants, one offering her salvation, the other deadly damnation."

"In this era of the Blade Runner comic, we see Ash becoming more human, which, I think is fascinating," said editor David Leach. "The initial idea of this killing machine learning humility and humanity from a bioengineered individual is amazing."

Contributing covers to the first issue are Peach Momoko, Gionvanni Valletta and Syd Mead.

LUMBERJANES ENDS: BOOM! Studios has announced a December release for Lumberjanes: End of Summer #1, the end of the series' six-year run.

The oversized issue is from cartoonist Kat Leyh, co-writer and co-creator Shannon Watters, artists Kanesha C. Bryant and Alexa Bosy, as well as returning co-creator and series artist Brooklyn Allen.

Molly has discovered a deep and ancient forest magic which she hopes to use to protect her friends and the home theyfve all found at camp. But will she be strong enough to save everyone in the camp and the forest? Or is the all-encompassing, all-erasing Grey just too powerful for anyone to stop?"

"When we announced End of Summer, we knew it would be the conclusion of a journey full of friendship, wonder, and fun for the Lumberjanes and for those of us who have wandered into the forest alongside them. Wefre so happy that so many readers, young and old, have found joy and adventure whenever they sat down to a new story with Jo, Mal, Ripley, April, Molly, and all the other beloved characters we've grown to love throughout the years," said edtior Jeanine Schaefer. "While this is the end of the Lumberjanes monthly comic book series for now, it's not the end of the 'Janes and new adventures, so stay tuned for more exciting news to come."
