    Great news for all us UKers, it sounds as though the good old days of the Marvel G1 have come again.

    This seems to confirm that the comic will be set in the movieverse. :)

    Dammit. The side stories of the old Marvel UK comics were some of the best TF stuff I've ever read, and I'd love to read these.

    UKer's should hereby be banned from calling out Hasbro UK on distribution and pricing for one week.

    I'm not a big comic person but I'd really love to see these side stories. Is there any reliable place that would sell these UK comics to people in the US?

    Titan Books, I believe. The first word that this was in the works came from them.

    After the Armada comic, we should be glad we're getting anything.

    Yeah, fair enough. I'm betting I'll be able to import the TPBs from Amazon.co.uk easily enough.

    And y'all will stay be paying twice the US rate for toys.

    I hereby retract my imaginary ban.

    EDIT: But seriously, those B&W back-ups were the best damn TF stories ever. Didn't the Wreckers start in those? And I loved seeing not-Prime/Megatron/Grimlock characters get some focus. With Furman writing, I'm betting these'll be fantastic.

    Not quite; The Wreckers actually first appeared in Target: 2006 (which was the tie-in story the UK comic did for the movie). That was at the time when the UK comic only ran 2 stories each week (US or UK TF story as the main one, and something like Machine Man as the backup strip).

    Good news all around.

    Hopefully I'll be able to get these (or a TPB) through amazon.co.uk. It's been a while since I've received anything by Royal Mail. :D 

    So, a question: Devastator is supposed to be a comic-only character, or is Furman working with the "work-in-progress-code-names" for the characters?

    Anyone think these'll be reprinted in the US? Maybe I'll hold off on getting the prequel comic trade, in case there's a later version that actually includes these stories.
