    Does the mean TFA will be an actual comic, not a magazine?
    and If its actually a Magazine will it be separate or the name of TFUK will change?

    It's how it's always been over here. Since the very beginning, we had our own comic, mostly US reprints, but some new material too. It was published a lot more often than the US comic after all so new material was needed and Simon Furman wrote the lion's share.

    There's also the fact that the US comics are not widely available here and comics in supermarkets have always been in a different format (much bigger for one, magazine sized). Even the Superman and Batman comics get reprinted in bigger magazine sized editions, but no new material for them.

    Anyhow, IDW is releasing the UK published Movie comics two to an issue in the US, so hopefully the Animated stuff should also find its way over there through them eventually.

    I think it is a separate magazine, I've heard it referred to as the sister publication of TFUK in TFUK itself. It was in the newest issue where they announced there would be a TFA comic.

    nah it'll be an issue all about how grimlock "swipes" control of the autobot team shortly after optimus bumblebee and rachet are randomly killed by some dark creature from another universe, and how grimlock saves the animatedverse from the onslaught of bludgeon. then how grimlock accends to super saiyan level 4 and takes over the universe as the god that he is.

    If Grimlock can take over the universe, even with his pronoun issues, WHAT CHANCE DO WE HAVE?

    Amusingly enough, according to the e-mail address given for readers to send letters to in the most recent issue of the UK magazine, Animated's letters page is going to be the return of "Grim Grams." :D
