    Just confirmed with my local store (FunnyBooks in Lake Hiawatha, NJ) that they will be receiving the prequel comic for next week.

    Has anyone else gotten a hold of this yet?
    Is it any good?
    I did see the preview pages last week.
    It looks promising.

    God, I just walked into a local bookstore and had the guy special order a Transformers book that doesn't come out until March but I thought it had already came out... it's the War Within comic. But maybe the next time I go in I'll see about getting the prequel comic.

    Basically...if you are lucky it is out today. But since retailers are being told to destroy it some people may not be so lucky and will have to wait for the replacement shipment come March.

    Damn! Shoulda bought more copies. My store had 3..which is about normal for TF comics these days..and I just bought one. Hadn't read about the printing error, but did a :sly:  when I read it. I just chalked it up to IDW's apparent lack of copy editors.

    Storywise, it's pretty good...but I still just can't dig on the designs even when Don draws them. For one, other than Megatron and BB, I can't tell who the hell anybody is. And BB only because he's center panel half the time...he's otherwise fairly indistinguishable from the other Bots. The background Cons look like more traditional Don comic TFs while Megs (sadly) looks very much like movie Megs.
    But, the overall tone and the story, as a setup for something bigger that just happens to be the movie in this case, is quite good.


    Edit: 4,000th post, yay!

    I was duped!
    Not in stock.
    Store owner didn't know about the recall until after he unpacked his shipments.
    Oh well, two more weeks.

    We get our comics the same week, usually. My store get's them them in on a Friday, just a few days after the US.
