    Just revealed!! There will be an issue #0 that will follow events of issue 94 and have implications on 95 and beyond. Best news....5 pages of GEOFF SENIOR art as well as a bunch of, as yet unknown, Transformers legends.

    I'm excited about this. Now if we can get a Regen annual, that'd be the icing on the cake.

    Don't expect this to be front paged. Know this, the vast majority of us love Regeneration One. TFW 2005 hates Regeneration One with a passion. I was removed from a discussion because I disagreed with the consensus.

    not sure about the majority. If most posts are any indication... and sales for that matter. I'm thinking the Regeneration is seen as more a failed idea and one that is not pleasing many.

    Or as a podcaster succinctly put it "it's the story many asked for and nobody wanted"

    I like Regeneration, it's the only one I'm reading right now. Bought all of Ongoing, MTMTE and RID, but haven't read yet the last 2.

    This should go in news...if you find a link to confirm it.

    Sounds cool though. I loved the first story arc of Regen, hated the second, but this is certainly intriguing enough to pick up.

    I agree with this. It was great until Furman rehashed Maximum Dinobots with the "Decepticon Gene" Sunbow-level of nonsense.

    Love me some Regeneration 1 - got to admit that the series reads better when taken as a whole instead of individual issues.

    Geoff Senior art makes me a happy Transformers fan.

    I think Regeneration One is pretty damn terrible, but I'll buy anything with Geoff Senior art.

    After issue 100 watch everyone clamor for a continuation (or at least "Another Time and Place" type of resolution...)

    It would be better if they continued it past 100 and just kept the story going. Issue #100 will be like #80 all over again (or issue #12 of G2).....I.E.-Sadness.....

    Odd that any aspect of TF would be singled out and hated on the boards. (??) I think Regeneration1 has its pros and cons. I am really glad they are trying to wrap up the old comic stories, in spite of it being a mixed bag.

    I do think bringing Furman/Wildman/Senior has been an amazing accomplishment. Those guys draw up a LOT of nostalgia for fans —*me included. I've loved seeing the slightly updated yet retro style... and the Senior covers have been amazing. If anything, it seems like my complaint would be seems like a lot of empty frames with no words... like less happening per issue. (Compared with MTMTE.) Still that's a pacing issue more than art or story.

    Can't wait for this bonus #0 issue. Really good news. Senior rocks.

    I've bought the whole series so far...to go with my full set of G1 comics, from my boyhood, which I dearly cherish.
    BUT...
    Since it's the continuation of the Marvel run, I'm wondering WTF the haters were expecting.
    Even the "Epic" G1 Marvel stories look pretty silly in retrospect.

    Remember how it felt to pick up TF #80 and see "#80 IN A FOUR ISSUE LIMITED SERIES" on the cover?
    And then how it felt to read Furman's last-page wrapup? "There's a slim chance TF Comics may return, but probably not."

    You don't?
    Then Regen One isn't for you.

    I expected something of similar quality. I did not expect Simon Furman to be throwing in tons of new plot threads everywhere only to burn through them so fast that nothing has any weight or substance. I did not expect the nonsensical bullshit that was Scorponok's big plan, which doesn't hold up to any amount of scrutiny as we've seen on this forum.

    I do remember those things. Regen One is supposed to be for me. Which is why I'm really crushed that it's terrible.

    I'm not a "hater", I'm a fan that's sad to see the Marvel G1 run capped off with this sloppy mess.

    I was excited when ReGeneration One was announced, but since then it's been a huge disappointment compared to the work on the other IDW books. ReGen just feels old... and this is coming from someone who remembers putting the original G1 Optimus Prime on layaway at Sears with my allowance money.

    I still think James Roberts' Eugenesis novel is the best work to come out of the Marvel TF comics continuity, albeit unofficially (being self-published) and heavily modified post-TF #81 by the TFUK community back in the day. That said, it's no surprise that the best TF book on the market right now (IMO) is MTMTE, written and drawn by TFUK alumni. I'm surprised IDW hasn't considered bringing that to the comics-realm. Or maybe they are... IDK.

    Pretty sure you were removed for flinging personal insults at those who disagreed with you.

    No one hates this series. But the people on this forum, more than any other forum, appreciate GOOD stories, GOOD plots, stuff that brings you in and keeps you hanging.

    I was super excited for this series when it was announced. This is where Furman really shined his brightest, where he became a staple in Transformers mythos.

    But instead all we've gotten is story rehashes from books he was pulled from, predictable outcomes to substandard plot lines, and honestly a feeling like the book was Furman's chance to finish his other IDW and UK stories he never got to finish because his books tanked.

    Scorponok is brain washing the Autobots to create a new evolution?!
    Maximum Dinobots.

    Thunderwing is somehow being used to create weapons?!
    Dead Universe.

    Galvatron vs Ultra Magnus?!
    UK Time Wars.

    Optimus Prime doubts himself?!
    Furman's entire Marvel US run.

    Rook and Jhiaxus are here?!
    G2.

    There is nothing new here. Nothing to keep me on the edge of my seat. Nothing that makes me go "I will remember this for a long time!"

    With a great book like MTMTE which is destroying boundaries and cliches that we've been used to in the Transformers universe for the last 30 years, it's difficult to try and enjoy something that's supposed to give a "proper ending" to a beloved series but instead reads like 50 issues of plots and stories shoved in to 20, with NONE of them truly being a continuation from the original book, as they are all "new".

    a) no insults were given, you also all gave your grinds against the book and its readership, I did the same out of fun thinking this was a forum to do that in and the author. Others have also complained about it not just me on various other sites so I wasn't an isolated incident (I just thought you were having a bad day).

    b) your crews insults have gotten onto Furman's blog personally insulting him and he didn't ban them and let the statements stand. So, there you go. A friend and I wrote to him about how he is such a stand up guy.


    Yet Thunderwing was already a super weapon (read his battle with Unicron) if you read the original comics and the only way the Matrix could of been retrieved (because it was lost in the fight with Unicron) Furman already said Jiaxus was going to be in the story from the get go so I don't know why you all decided to jump on him when he finally introduced him. The rallying cry of Maximum Dinobots is getting old even you admitted so (so no insult given). Scorpinok and Grimlock's dynamic is different than before (a Faustian bargain vs a straight up rivalry). Ultra Magnus vs Galvatron happens all the time. I personally love it. I will remember Regeneration One. It is a great send off for that universe compared to all the beloved fanfiction (club comics and so on) that have been written as book ends.

    I love it. Everyone here has no clue what a good comic is. They say that Regeneration One is a decompressed narrative and MTMTE is a compressed narrative when it is the opposite. MTMTE is super decompressed (their exploits on the pleasure planet proves that). I am really thinking that Mike Costa is right and its not sour grapes he has with the tf community. Also, Scorpinok could be dead and Grimlock alive and it was just the frame of the story which the fate/purpose of Cybertron hinges on. You are also banning Furman from using two of his signature characters.

    It sells out everywhere here. The first trade of MTMTE is still in multiple comic book store but the trades for Regeneration One are out of print.

    MTMTE is called a fanwank for a reason I suppose. It does nothing new. Its just a broventure. I bet you like Michael Bay because he broke stereotypes and gave us 'fresh' Transformers.

    Statistically its a dead heat between the three books (with RID being last for various months). Also, many people consider MTMTE a fanfic so it cuts both ways if you want to blindly insult comics.

    Pretty cool. I'd like it if he does his own colours as well. I enjoyed the story Geoff did for Titan's movieverse comic, but the colour sample he did for those pages looked so much better than the published work.

    Hope Simon can get a few pages from my personal favourite Dan Reed.
