It’s TEAM RODIMUS versus a universe gone wrong! An alternate Cybertron is being torn apart as the malevolent Functionist Council implement a plan that’s been millions of years in the making. But with victory within their reach, they find themselves up against someone who really shouldn’t exist: MEGATRON.

(W) Mairghread Scott (A/CA) Sara Pitre-Durocher
After the costly victory against the Titans, Iacon is in shambles and Starscream finds himself on shakier ground than ever. The key to his political (and likely literal) survival rests in the outcome of a very unlikely event: the trial of the Council’s first official war criminal-Chromia of Caminus!

Found a lot of upcoming books and TPBs on Amazon that go all the way to January next year, but oddly, there is a two month gap of IDW TPBs from March 8th to June 6th.
Plus, a couple of books have been pushed back several months (Classics UK Vol 6 is now 6 months delayed, the TF/GIJoe HC is now 7 months delayed probably due to the extra "movie" issue, and the second volume of the RID Animated (MTMTE) is now 11 months delayed, pushing it so far back that volume 3 is now already out).

Out this week is the first issue of the satirical "Revolutions Aw Yeah", said to be a comical look at the recently published Revolutions mini-series, with simplistic "kiddie" art style.
It was originally planned to be 4 issues, but word is that it might have been trimmed back to just 3... which could mean that it's solicitation to comic stores a few months ago didn't generate enough interest and IDW preferred to scale back the issues, instead of cancelling it altogether.

For the comic fans, an interview with writer James Roberts, talking about the Lost Light comic series.

Also, it has been pointed out on TFW, that a small detail on the Amazon listing for the Revolutions Vol 2 TPB, suggest that the next story arc from IDW will be called Insurgency.

The title has been officially announced as "First Strike", and will be a crossover between Transformers, GIJoe and MASK. It looks to be two issues, both released during the month of August.
