    Sorry if this has been posted. Didn't spot it.

    Part reprint, part original material.
    Wow.

    Seems to be legit -- that is the domain Titan Books use for contact.

    Holy shit, Steve White!
    Hopefully this new comic will be better than the other comic based abominations the UK's been saddled with since the G1 Marvel comic ended.
    *puttup*
    (VERY old in-joke)

    Yay!! Hopefully it'll last longer than ten issues before disappearing due to "lack of popularity" like all the other 'kiddie' oriented stuff that comes out in this imagination-starved country.

    Comics get a rough deal here - They're usually aimed at pre-teens to judge by their childish graphics. The TF ARMADA and NEW CAPTAIN SCARLET comics (that I desperately wanted to be serious companions to their respective on screen shows) were utter disasters that I felt embarassed buying.

    Sweet, I was talking to Geoff a while back (I bought some of his original artwork direct) and he said he'd love to work with Simon again - glad to see it finally happen ^^

    As a kid I never realy understood what "Puttup" meant - doh!

    And it took me into most of my adulthood (thus far) to really understand. It's like one of those Zen Koans...

    But this is brilliant news. Although I'm confused - wasn't Geoff Senior quoted, in the original UK comic, no less, as saying that he hated drawing Transformers? Or was that someone else?

    If they could get Jeff Anderson back in there as well, that'd just be superb - always loved his work! ^^

    Will the letter pages reintroduce the V.V.H when mistakes are made? (for the real old timers)

    Funny how news - and a thread - like this can make this old fart grin like a kid. :) 

    Geoff Senior doing new TF art? Sold on that alone. :rock 

    (All it needs now is Robo-Capers, and it's gold... :p )

    im actually skeptical in regards to geoff.

    i love him to bits but his covers for the titan TPBs werent actually stellar.

    what i grow concern more is the lack of reliable/consistent story tellers outside of furman. i know his fast but geez, cant these ppl dig up new writers?
