What material have Panini already done for RID?
If the Signature comic is done they may have the rights to the cartoon (and it'd be unusual for two different companies to have the licence), but this almost certainly be for the films. The spoiler policy is basically irrelevant there, there's a long history of Bay film comics written with no basic idea what's in the films.
EDIT: That plot description almost sounds like reprints of IDW Ex-RID!
If you read it - that says Panini did the movie comics too - so I think it is talking about Panini Europe, didn't they have the rights but what was Marvel UK are not interested in getting the rights to a Transformers comic (but Marvel UK would have gone under back in 1985 if it wasn't for Transformers making them so much money & getting them artists in)
Panini publish the German edition of RID, which shares the same reprints that we get (or did, I haven't seen it on ebay.de for a while). If they are writing new stories, Signature may choose to licence them for publication in the UK.
I'd be surprised if Panini did take back the comic rights in the UK. Signature have done impressive work with the distribution - it's often visible in the WH Smiths, Tescos, Sainsburys & newsagents that I visit. A far cry from the questionable distribution of the Armada UK comic, which I could only find in a single newsagent.
Ok - I went in Sainsburys at White rose m62 j28 - £4.99 for #19 with free pack of 4 cards - should be the last few but not opened yet, steeljaw toy, optimus keyring & DVd with ep4,7 on it. #20 out 26/5/17. So not been cancelled yet. But got to tell & guy said it not scanning so you can have it free then. But if this is just error with their tells there - I'll pay the £4.99, no problem with that. But I got the issue for free because it would not scan the bar code & the shop floor assistant stated it must be free then. So i've put £5 aside to pay for it anyway. Anyone else had a problem with it & got the issue for free? They had 3 copies in.
