I know a few people have been discussing this and are eager to know ANY details IDW have for this.
I have a question, has the digital aspect freed you up or hindered you in any way? Or is the future prospect of a print version keeping this comic pretty straight laced even though it's gonna be digital first (or only?)?

From what we heard half a year ago, Autocracy was planned as a digital-only series, with each chapter running about eight to twelve pages long. Is that still the case?
We were also told the series would be taking place either before the Autobot/Decepticon war, or during the very early stages of the war, roughly in the Megatron: Origin/"Chaos Theory" era. Is that still the case?
Hopefully this doesn't spoil anything major, but is the cast of characters familiar to Transformers fans or have you been illustrating a mostly new or untapped cast?
Who is your favorite character to draw?
Are you doing your own colors for this series?
Finally, do we have a set release date or month for the series yet?

Yeah, Autocracy and Regeneration One continuation should fill the Optimus Prime quotient while Barberts explores a universe without Optimus and Megatron.

That's the beauty of John Barber being both the editor of all the current TF series ( including Autocracy) as well as writer of one of the ongoings. He's really been great at keeping things in line and making sure the past of Autocracy matches up with the present of the two new ongoings. So, John is the guiding force keeping us all on track while Flint, Chris and I focus on Autocracy.
