Yes, just when you thought I was done, Transformation is evolving into an new ongoing blog project, this time looking at the first 13 years of IDW, from Verity Carlo to Unicron.

It'll be starting on Christmas Day 2020, but for now, here's a little tease of Revisitation:

Are you tackling just the main continuity, or all the odds and ends like Hearts of Steel as well?

Hearts of Steel is main continuity (insanely and only revealed to be so many years later), so that'll be in there.

But yeah, the core thing will be the main stuff.

I was totally unaware that Hearts of Steel was incorporated after the fact.

I remember it mainly from doing an essay on period adaptations in a humanities class in college, but that was ages ago. Only point I remember was being confounded as to why they chose to use Mark Twain instead of Nikola Tesla or Thomas Edison. It'd be interesting to go back over it and re-evaluate it, as now I think Twain was the better fit all along.

If you put up links to the issues in collected trades that I can order as you go, I'm happy to follow along. Only parts of IDW I've read are the aforementioned HOS, the Beast Wars omnibus, and Last Stand of the Wreckers.

There's certainly going to be a few surprises along the way.
