    I wouldn't know. Despite combing every WH Smith, newsagent and ASDA anywhere near me I have yet to even spot a single fucking issue.

    The first issue was awesomeness, but it went downhill from there until issue 5. Geoff Senior's art style has not aged well, and the colouring was awful. It even ruined Don Fig's art in issue 4. Not worth getting for the new material, IMO.

    Also, to anyone who picks up any issue of this - skip the letters page, you'll only lose the will to live.

    Really? Perhaps you'll have to order online then or subscribe. But my WHSmith at least stocks it.

    I think the artwork was good in the last issue (#5). I agree that Don's art was not done justice in issue #4 with the colouring. But the Jazz art for #6 out this week looks promising. I think the artwork maybe picking up. But yeah, the UK strips are short, the rest of the comic is made up of IDW reprints, profiles, competition pages and the last letter pages. I actually don't mind reading some of the comments sent in on the letters pages, and sometimes there's some decent artwork they receive that they reprint there. I actually sent an e-mail to them once before with a suggestion for more exclusive artwork.

    Read it. Decent story, terrible art, felt a bit rushed at times.

    The story's shifted from prequel to sequel in this month's issue #7. Will be interesting to see where it all goes later on. Boo's 'stylized art' humans in this issue #7 were funny to look at. It was nice to see Optimus whip out his blade once again too.

    *Gloats* And my email is this issue's star letter! Hoorah! Yes, i did win an Optimus Prime voice changer helmet! Hee!
