I have been a part-time comic fan for a while, and was looking at some TF comics. But, there is a confusing number of series out there. I am old enough to remember the first TF comic series, and in the UK - so I want something that I can find easily in this country. I am looking for both a one-off graphic novel and a running comic series. I have not bought any since the original series, so I want something that doesnt rely on loads of past background storyline, and I want to jump in at the start of a series and not just half way through and have to catch up. Does the up-coming IDW line give me what I am looking for as a running series, and if not can anyone suggest something that does. Also, what are the essential graphic novel collections that I should get. I want something with 'grown up', gritty and interesting storylines beyond bright colours and fist fighting, and drawn well. Any suggestions of 'stand alone' books or comic series that have just got started would be gratefully received. Thanks.
