Simon Furman has updated his blog with the following entry.
"Beast Wars The Ascending #3 is out, unleashed. The issue hits stores
this week (12th Dec in the US, 13th here in the UK). And if you thought
things were looking dire for the Maximals (and Predacons) at the end of
issue #2, wait’ll you see what #3’s got in store for them (and you).
With armageddon (of the Unicron variety) looming for Cybertron, all
remaining hopes lie with Razorbeast and his timelost Maximals. But no
sooner do Lio Convoy and the Pack arrive back on prehistoric Earth than
Razorbeast is infected by Rartorata with Angolmois ‘rage,’ more or less
scuppering any last hope. Desperate alliances are formed, tragedies
unfold, evil gets the upper hand, time gets all bent out of shape and
Shokaract is finally unleashed (much to Big Convoy’s dismay). Their
darkest hour… just keeps getting darker. Story is by me, art by Don
Figueroa (his last, it seems, for the time being… sniff). Check out
Don’s nifty cover art for the issue by clicking on the thumbnail below.
