New Comic Book Wednesday brings Transformers: Heart of Darkness #4 that concludes the prequel story arc to the "Chaos" storyline that will run biweekly in Transformers for the rest of the year. The covers and first 7 pages of the issue can be found here.
In additional, IDW's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall revealed that after the Chaos storyline, there will be a "relaunch of two new "Transformers" titles, and there's very important reasons in the Transformers universe why these titles are becoming two, how they're splitting and what's going to happen from there. It's a big that's sort of rocking the whole Transformers status quo and shaking things up to a big degree." I think the title is splitting is Transformers ongoing which will get a new numbering to #125 with the opening story being "The Death of Optimus Prime." The details on IDW's future plans can be found at Comic Book Resources.
