While there were a lot of companies that had news to share in their panel, there really wasn’t enough to justify a single article for each.  To make sure we try to get as much complete coverage as we can, here’s a summary of the tid-bits coming from the rest.


  • More Transformers series hitting store through the rest of 2008 and into 2009
  • Transformers: Destiny will be a five parter beginning in December
  • Transformers Movie Sequel: The Reign of Starscreen, seems pretty self explanatory
  • Simon Furman will write a Maximum Dinobots.
  • He will also write Transformers: The 13 which will tell the origin of the Robots in Disguise
  • All hail Megatron will feature a brand new IDW-created Transformer.

  • Yes, there is a Hack/Slash movie in the works – expect a hard R when it comes out
  • Cassie will pose as a Suicide Girl in the upcoming annual
  • Want more zombies in your comics? How about Chopper Zombie combing biker shows with the undead.
  • Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street is partnering with the company to get Devil’s Due comics online and in the eyes of new readers
  • The company also announced a partnership with French comic company Les Humanoides Associes that will have Devil’s Due translating the comics into English.

Boom! Studios

  • As already reported, several Disney/Pixar properties are head to the company
  • Since company co-found Andrew Cosby helped create the Sci-Fi series Eureka, it only makes sense Boom! would announce an adaptation of the series

Dabel Brother Publishing

  • The company announced a deal to adapt the Warriors movie into a comic series.  Yes, the Warriors.  Believe it.

I know that isn’t all the companies, but it’s what I have for now.  More as I get them in.
