All that is new is old! In an effort to get ready for #81 next year, some members and I thought it good to do a kind of joint read-through of the Marvel US run. EDIT: I see this thread as a way to talk in general about the US/UK Marvel run. What do you like, dislike, loathe, or love? Think of it as an unofficial book-club. Except sharing baked goods might be tough to do. I don't really intend to do one issue at a time but let's just start with #1! SO: Issue #1 Where it all began. I'm a bit shaky on the "which came first" question on Sunbow vs. Marvel G1 but for me this was my first introduction to the Transformers. The Awesome: OP's introduction -- awesome pencil job Springer! Megatron's canon destroying Cybertronian cities! But most of all, I dig the shadow-outline of all the Autobots lined up in front of the Ark's computer screen, "absorbing" information. Springer stuck with the toy versions of G1 Ratchet/IH for a while. The Daffy: The heavy-handed self-reference of the characters. Soundwave! What color are you anyway? Self-introduction. Macchio and Uncle Bob have to give us snippets of character for each of the Transformers. This is awesome. Small or Big Question: How well does this all stand up? Probably a big question for #81. Take my headers as suggested way to comment on #1.
