    Just for fun, and as a fan of the Marvel UK comics, I edited (quickly cut and paste) pages of the Back From The Dead issue with the Marvel UK issues #235 and 236. As you may or may not know, #56 was only sixteen pages long. I feel like every issue should be twenty-two pages long. I'm not a digital colorist or skilled with photoshop or anything, so I've had to leave some things alone, like the original "The Ark - Now" still being present despite the story already taking place on the Ark.

    Let me know what you think. I've done a few more edits like this for other issues if anyone wants to see.

    and then the story continues exactly the same way as it did in the US issue with no further edits.

    “Angel of death”? Is Siren foreshadowing Unicron?

    Very nice work. Always liked that Deathbringer story. Geoff Seniors art never disappoints.

    The Big Shutdown! takes place directly before Back From The Dead! in my edits.

    I don't see why you mingled The Big Shutdown with the Two Megatrons story.

    Because of how the second parts to each story don't flow directly from the last page of the first parts. Thunderwing shows up at the end of the first part then he's shown to have already fought against Siren and gained the upper hand on the first page of the second part. Having Two Megatrons between those parts is to show that time has passed in The Big Shutdown during the Two Megatrons story.

    It's an interesting idea, but it's a little jarring to suddenly have good art when the Senior pages appear, then be forced to read pages with bad art again when it shifts to someone else. Also, out of curiosity, why is some of the art stretched, and some squished? Is that just how you found it, or was it a choice?

    Its no effort edit. Because I'm no good at photoshop or anything to redo them properly.

    And some of the art is stretched and squished because the original panels weren't the right size for the edited page I wanted to tell a more consistent story. Its basically condensing a 16 page story and a 10 page story into 22 pages. I wanted them to form roughly the same dimensions of a regular comic book page. If you were to look at the original b&w issue, you'll see that panels came from all over the place on different pages and several panels are dropped because they wouldn't fit the narrative I was telling.

    If I did have the ability to, I'd redraw everything and clean the proportions up better.

    In the original comic, Starscream isn't shown to be attacking the Triggerbots; this was shown after he attacked them as a flashback to a scene that happened between issues. Here, Starscream attacks them while the scene goes back to Cybertron for two pages of Demons.

    Race With The Devil and Demons continues the next issue.

    Staz was such an underrated TF artist - always chuffed when I saw he had drawn one of the black-and-white strips or a cover.
