    for a while, i've never read the transformers comics. i have one issue in a bag, and its from the headmasters line, where theres a pic of fortress maximus ripping off his head, i though that was cool.

    but anyway, ive been wanting to get into the comics, and im just wondering where i should start out at.

    like ive been wanted to get the animated movie comics, and the prequel comics. are those out yet, and if so, where can i get them?

    The cartoon was not on regularly when I was growing up so my love of Transformers comes mainly from the original Marvel comics. Pick up those trades, but remember that it's not the same as the G1 cartoon.

    Also, I loved the Dreamwave G1 comics. You should pick up the trades for that and the Dreamwave War Within trades.

    While I enjoy some of the Transformers titles, I don't use them as a measuring stick on what is considered good graphic novels.

    You might give Dark Knight Returns a try. I always suggest reading that first and then reading some of the other stuff since this was one of the firsts that set that stage for everyone after it.

    Also, I think some people get spoiled on the computer coloring (I know I do) and think some of the older stuff looks like crap and will turn away from it. But there are some good stories there, as well as art, just not the pretty colors.

    If you want something outside TF....Fables is a really good read...it's based on fairy tale characters but with a twist...awesome read, my #1 title in my collection.

    My wife and I went to the local comic store and the chick there gave her a copy of the 25 cent Fables issue. Now she is buying the TPBs.

    Some of the books I enjoy
    Hellblazer- Though do try and get the earlier stuff or if your not sure you'll like it find all his engines. It's a pretty good representation of the modern hellblazer stories
    Testament
    Cable and Deadpool- Single or trade its a damn fun series
    Green lantern- has been pretty good too
    The Street Fighter 2 comic books
    The Punisher- it does wear kind of thin after awhile I'd recommend finding the trade of mother russia. That's been my favorite arc so far
    The Immortal Iron Fist- 2 issues are out so far and its been intresting

    If I think of anymore I'll post them
