    Not much new, as expected. The books themselves are similar in size to the "IDW Manga" books. Smaller than the typical TF TPBs. Before the story, you have the bios for the Autobots and Megatron & Starscream. Otherwise, it's pretty much word for word of the show with a few libertires in there.

    We do, however, get names for two of Blitzwing's faces. Tough-Guy face and Crazy face. Blitzwing needs his own spin-off.

    I flipped through this in the store, and I thought the quality was kind of poor. A lot of the panels were slightly out of focus.

    Got my copy today. I really like it and will continue to buy it. I love the pic of Earth Mode Megatron.

    After the terrible Sigma 6 book, I don't expect much of tv to comic adaptions.

    It just covers the introduction movie/episodes 1-3.

    I haven't really had a chance to read through it, yet, but I've flipped through it enough to know that I like it. I'll be buying the rest of the series, probably.
