Our thanks go out to Mike Kazybird for letting us know that a new Humph the Cat strip has been created for the first time since April 86.
Whilst working on various licensed characters, presently on the Wallace & Gromit daily cartoon strip in The Sun newspaper, a new Humph the Cat strip has finally been produced. The 23 page story, whilst already begun, will be downloaded on the above blog during the weeks of July. The strip has been done by way of thanks to those who read and enjoyed the original story in Transformers. At a later stage, it will go to print with additional pages to the story, plus feature pages.
"As, once again, we’re reasonably close to publication date, this script (w)rap also serves as pre-release teaser for Transformers: Nefarious #5, the penultimate issue of the official comic book sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Spoilers ahoy, though as always I will try not to give away too much here. So — the pieces are all in place. Soundwave has tried and failed to crack the remarkably resilient nut that is The Initiative (the human organization with some long-standing ties and kind-sized grudges to/against the earliest Transformers to reach Earth — Seekers). So now it’s a joint offensive, Soundwave and the Autobots — together. But first they have to find the Initiative, who — it soon becomes apparent — aren’t just going to sit still and wait for the next attack. And just what did (or who did) happen to Soundwave last issue? What isn’t he telling his newfound Autobot allies? And just who is the Seeker incarcerated within the Initiative’s base? Carter Newell, the embittered and vengeful mastermind behind the Initiative, takes a big step towards the glorious realization of a plan seventy years in the making. Trouble is, in achieving his ends, he may also wipe out the entire world! Story is by me, art by the ever-magnificent Carlos Magno. The issue should be in stores on 14th (US) or 15th (UK) of July."

Titan Comics UK exclusive Transformers comic issue 2.14 went on sale today. Below you can find a synopsis along with some preview images.
STRATOSPHERE head in the clouds, that's Stratosphere all over. He's in his element at high altitude but unversed in ground combat. So, when his wings are clipped on a routine reconnaissance mission in the Cascades, Stratosphere must learn the hard way, from scratch if he's to survive and report back. Especially as he's learned of a Decepticon operation to
Simon Furman has updated his blog with another Script (W)rap entry.
A sort of combined deal this time around, a script (w)rap for Transformers Nefarious #4 and also a pre-release teaser for the same, as it hits stores this coming week (June 16th in the US, 17th in the UK). Last issue saw Soundwave slip through the Autobots’ collective fingers and this issue he’s decided enough is enough. The human organization responsible for both the resurrection/usurping of Ravage and the manipulations that landed Soundwave in trouble in the first place is going down — hard! But the Initiative has tricks up its sleeve that, once again, even Soundwave hasn’t seen coming. And at last we learn some of the how and why about this mysterious and far-reaching organization (which seems to have an uncanny grasp of Cybertronian technology) and its coldly calculating director, Carter Newell. Just how long does his relationship with the robots in disguise go back? What traumatic event eventually gave rise to the Initiative? The answers will surprise you. And, meanwhile, director of national security Theodore Galloway is well and truly in the firing line — hunted by none other than Ransack! Things are looking distinctly terminal in that direction! Nefarious #4 is out in the next few days, with story by me art by the incredible Carlos Magno. Don’t miss it!

Amazon.com has updated their "Transformers: Exodus" product page with the following description of the Exodus novel.
"For twenty-five years the colossal battle between Megatron and
Optimus Prime has captivated Transformers fans around the world. Yet
the full story of the conflict between the two most famous
Transformers—everything that happened before Optimus and Megatron
arrived on planet Earth—has always been a mystery . . . until now. Here,
for the first time told in its entirety, is the thrilling saga of
Optimus and Megatron before they were enemies, before they even knew
“Freedom is every Cybertronian’s right!” After Megatron utters these immortal words, the caste-bound planet of Cybertron is rocked to its foundations. Megatron, an undefeated gladiator thug, gives voice to the unspoken longings of the oppressed masses—and opens the mind of an insignificant data clerk to possibilities previously unthinkable.
Long before becoming the honorable Optimus Prime, Orion Pax is a mere office underling, an unlikely candidate to answer an outlaw’s call to revolution. But Orion is determined to meet this defiant enemy of all that Cybertron stands for, no matter what he has to do, or how many laws he has to break.
What happens between Orion Pax and Megatron forever changes the destiny of all Transformers. This gripping, action-packed novel reveals all the loyalties and treacheries, trust and betrayals, deadly violence and shining ideals, as well as the pivotal roles played by other characters, including Starscream, Sentinel Prime, Omega Supreme, and one of the thirteen original Primes, the last link to Cybertron’s glorious Golden Age.
Discover how meek disciple Orion Pax becomes the fearless leader Optimus Prime; follow the tantalizing clues about the lost Matrix of Leadership and the lore surrounding it; find out why the two allies fighting a corrupt regime suddenly turn on each other, and what triggers their epic war. Transformers: Exodus provides everything fans ever wanted to know about one of the fiercest rivalries of all time."
