Transformers (IDW)

In 2005 IDW picked up the rights for Transformers and hired long-time Transformers writer Simon Furman to craft a rebooted Generation 1  continuity.  In order to maintain the integrity of the slow burn revelation envisioned by Simon Furman,  this order maintains mostly a publishing standard so that ideas and characters can evolve on the page.
