'Transformers: Till All Are One' Series Ends This July

Though you still will be able to get a dose of the characters late this year or early next.

The third of IDW's "ongoing" Transformers series, Transformers: Till All Are One  debuted last July. A year later, the title will be having its final issue with #12, writer Mairghread Scott announced on her blog. The writer noted that this cancellation was her choice, as IDW asked if she wanted to shake things up with the title after the Revolutions First Strike  event, but she declined. There will be a follow-up annual for the series after it ends though, so fans will get one more shot at the characters before they go in a different direction.

Here's a portion of Scott's blogpost making the announcement:

I should have written this a while ago, but I wanted to wait until after Issue #10 because it was such an important issue for me, a triumph of our series. And I think it truly is a triumph.  It’s difficult and uncomfortable and still very compelling. This is in big part thanks to Sara’s amazing art and Joana’s amazing colors. So now I’ll say it. We’re cancelled.

What happened? Nothing.

We were asked if we wanted to do something to shake things up (shift focus, shift cast, shift story) after the First Strike event, which is also normal, but I didn’t. I love Transformers, but I’ve been writing it for literally years and I wanted to tell this story. So rather than think of a new story I didn’t love as much, I just chose to end us here.

Till All Are One will go to Issue 12 and then an annual will be put out late 2017/early 2018  to wrap up any loose threads. A thousand thanks to our editor, Carlos, for giving us that much-needed space. A thousand thanks to Sara and Joana and Priscilla and Tom and John and Meg and Jason and all the people I know I’m forgetting and shouldn’t.

Issue 11 and 12 are going to be awesome by the way. I think we crafted a really satisfying, positive ending emotionally and the annual puts that needed cherry on top. We did something I never thought I’d be able to pull off that I’ll talk about more when it’s released.

 

The author also thanks the fans in the post:

Finally,

I want to take a moment and thank you, the readers. You’ve made me stronger, bolder, and better at my craft and the love you have shown this story has been inspiring. I will miss you most of all and I hope you follow me on my next books (because there will be more books) even if they don’t have giant robots.
