Chris Ryall Responds to Fans’ Concerns About The Beast Wars Source Book

{mosimage}Many fans have noticed several errors in the first Beast Wars: Source Book that IDW released last week. These amount anywhere from coloring errors to mistakes alphabetizing the characters names, and even improperly credited artwork. IDW Publishing Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall has posted in the IDW forums trying to ease these concerns.

Hey, everyone–

In the time we've been doing Transformers comics, there have been highs and lows for the fans, I know. As there's going to be on anything — some projects work better than others, for various reasons. 

So what happened?

That's a good question. But there's really no need for me to make excuses or air any beasty-smelling laundry, so I'll just say that the book is, like everything we publish, ultimately my responsibility. This book was one that sort of slipped through the crack while I was dealing with an editorial shift, and it went out with some errors. Book Two was completed during this same period. But Andrew is here as the TF Editor now, and is extremely competent and he and I will do what we can to ensure the rest of the books are produced as they should be. As many errors are able to be corrected in the collected version will be fixed, too.
