    Hey all,

    Its a new year, and it is time for a new useless thread by TheDemonDzko. (Hey! Thats me. =D)

    So ladies and gentlemen:

    "What is your favorite Transformers Comic?"

    My personal favorite is, " Dreamwaves Transformers: Armada, issue 14; Worlds Collide 1 of 4"

    This comic always stuck to me, just for the sheer win of having various elements of the Transformers Universe thrown into Armada, and seeing the dead universe for the first time, almost made me nerd gasm, due to the horror on Primes face.


    So yeah, thats the start of the thread, lets gooooooooooooooooooo.

    My fave is the Pretenders Micromaster issue with Iguanus on the cover. I think it is IDW #50

    Very hard to pick just one, but I'd probably go for something from Marvel UK - #50 was a true classic.

    Whatever issue No the one with Galvy riding vehicle mode magnus on the front cover was. Magnus vs Galvatron was epic.

    That was UK #86, Target 2006 pt 9.

    Personally my favourite was a UK collected comics issue, the one with the Wrath of Guardian/Grimlock story in it. AMAZING. Don't get stories like that anymore.

    Maybe the Matrix Quest: Bird of Prey comic.
    It had old film noir influences, the two awesome characters Nightbeat and Thunderwing and a space opera setting to boot!

    Edit: How can I forget this. It also had Geoff Senior wielding the pencils! Best Transformer artist in the old Marvel comics hands down.

    My favorite is Tailgate's issue with humans 'enslaving' non-sentient machines.

    Issue 67 of the marvel run:

    [​IMG]

    It was one of the best alternate reality stories. The image of Rodimus's corpse hanging between the two buildings still stands as one of the more memorable scenes in comic continuity. It also established Galvatron as someone to fear in the US Marvel run.

    ^ Seconded! One of the best issues of the Marvel run, and coincidentally one of the first issues I actually bought! BTW, those aren't just two random buildings, Rodimus is hanging between what is left of the World Trade Center Twin Towers in NY. Kinda creepy.

    I always remember The Marvel G1 issue # 7 ("Warrior School"). It had one of the best covers, and even as a 6 year old, I got the impact of the story of how it was just Ratchet on his own against Megatron and it ends with a great cliffhanger that gives you the impression he's screwed either way. Great stuff, still to this day, 26 years later, I think it's my favorite issue.

    I always liked the way that Rathet and Megatron semed to be linked in the Marvel continity culminating with them being combined:

    Marvel Uk Issue 84 where Galvatron reveals his origin to Jazz. The last page where Hot Rod, Kup and Blurr return from the future was amazing. The whole passage of text on that page still haunts me when I read it.

    "They pause, frozen by a laugh that begins deep down in their subconscious...haunting, malovelent, it comes from beyond time, beyond space. It echoes off of a deserted coal mine, reverberates off the surface of Cybertron and finally reaches Galvatron. And the sudden chill he feels owes little to the climate."

    Amazing art by Geoff Senior further elevated by some fantastic colouring. The expressions on Cyclonus and Galvatron in the last panel chill me every time, even 25 years later. There's just something in their eyes.

    I've read only a small fraction of all the comics, but I'll never forget my faves...


    Transformers #3 (Marvel)

    Gears (the first Transformer I ever had) teams up with black-suit/alien-symbiote Spider-Man against Megatron!

    Transformers #5 (Marvel)
    The Transformers...ARE ALL DEAD. And I love how it ended with the discovery of Prime's still-living, detached head.

    Wow, tough call, unless you're talking favorite cover which is easy. It's this one:

    [​IMG]

    Marvel G1 issue #5 ranks pretty high for me storywise as well, but I'd have to give top honor to the #8 ("Repeat Performance") because it was multilevel epic: Dinobots, Dinobots vs Shockwave, Dinobots vs Megatron, and Shockwave's backstory -- all in the same issue! And then it ends with Ratchet outsmarting and defeating Megatron! It was just full of Holy Crap! moments that blew my young fanboy mind.

    Probably "Back From the Dead" or "Dark Creation" from Furman's U.S. Marvel comics run.
