    That is awesome! Might be a bit weird for newer readers, I mean yeah, we've gotten 1s, 0s, 1/2s, but 80.5? :lol

    Looks like it'll be cool for fans of the original Marvel run - and while the title is very simple, I can't help but find "Regeneration One" to have an awesome ring to it.

    Do issues like this end up in the TPB?

    Feels good to be excited about a Transformers comic again! I mean, I'm checking out the Roberts and Barber stuff... but this is the REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD.

    Infiltration had issue #0. So I don't see why it wouldn't. But who knows...

    If the GI Joe 155.5 was in that tpb (and I'm fairly sure it was), then this will be, too.

    All of your big time comic stores will have copies of this. Even if it's a smaller store, you could ask them to make sure you get a copy-

    IDW PUBLISHING
    Transformers #80.5
    Simon Furman (w); Andrew Wildman (p), Stephen Baskerville (i); Wildman (c)
    The wait is over–after a 20-year hiatus, IDW proudly returns to the original TRANSFORMERS comic book universe, picking up right where 1991’s TRANSFORMERS #80 left off! Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Kup, Hot Rod and all your favorite Generation One TRANSFORMERS characters charge into the future as fan-favorite writer Simon Furman and legendary Transformers artist Andrew Wildman present TRANSFORMERS #80.5! Reflecting back on the dizzying highs and the terrifying lows of the original run of Transformers comics, Optimus Prime watches over a Cybertron that hasn’t faced Megatron for decades. But that peace shudders to an end, as we dive headlong into July’s TRANSFORMERS #81!

    Because the Fans demanded it! Thousands of TRANSFORMERS fans signed petitions urging us to make this book–and IDW listened!



    Thanks, IDW, for listening (for once)! :) 

    Guys, I think Bleeding Cool might have had it wrong; other places online list FCBD as May 5th (with would make more sense as FCBD is usually in May).

    If this contradicts G2, then I wont be on board.

    G2 , was produced by the same company, written by the same man, and had at times the same artist working on it ( including Wildman ). I am sick of the , lets ignore this part of the continuity, and start anew.

    Had they wanted to scrap something, they should have scrapped issue 80 and started with a new 80.

    The old issue 80 had like a year or so stories crammed into 1 to finish the series suddenly.

    Anyways I am hoping very much it doesnt contradict G2 as I want to support this, but again , if it does, I am not going to be buying this. Same way as I dont support the Larry Hama book.

    Scapping 80 and starting over with a new 80 (also my preferred starting point- in fact; I would have liked it to pick up from where 78 left off) would have been the same in regards to ignoring G2, no?


    What does ARAH not incorporate that makes you not buy it? The Devil's Due stuff?

    Sign me up.

    I tried to get into the IDW books from the get go, but have found most of them (AHM excluded) to be all but unreadable.

    I'll give this a shot for sure.
