Q&A
More plans for Spotlights? Trying to hone everything back 2gether and on the same page, not "fixing stories", trying to smooth things out, tricky with multiple series and writers so it runs into continuity issues, hence reason 4 focus on Earth, not ruled out yet/not on schedule, trying to get ducks in row

Any chance of new Animated, like Season 4? Not currently new content at this point, but it MIGHT happen

More BW stories? None

Punch/CP? Not on schedule, but 4-mini "Legacy of Rust"

Any effort to maintain art consistency? Yes. Maintain recognizable elements of charas, trying to look more consistent with each other, process just starting, Don going back to like first 6 issues, Don was also disheartened by negative criticism on the designs so pulling back a bit

The 13, anything on Cybertron's history? No comment on 13, but haven't forgotten, more Cybertron-central stories
