    Ehhhhh. Skids is counting down the seconds til he can be with her, and she blows off a human dude that was asking her out so that she can rub her sudsy tits all over a robot's windshield instead. She's in a crop top and daisy dukes. And look at the language Skids uses..."mmmmm...would you do it again? You sure you don't mind?" He may as well be asking her to go down on him.

    Notice the motion lines....he's convulsing as she rubs him down. Not to mention all that thick, white liquid spilling everywhere. This page is downright filthy when you think about it.

    I just found out about this and I can't tell you how happy I am. The Japanese magazine comics were, I think, the longest running piece of fiction about the TFs ever. Storylines and conclusions out the wazoo and stuff I've never seen and... oh my. Am very excited.

    While I’m an extreme enthusiast of the original cartoon, Im not a fan of the comics. The older comics comics at least... but the idea of this being hardback and being offered in English for the first time has peaked my interests.
    I’ve preordered volume 1 & 2 and I’m pretty excited to read through these for the first time. Hopefully they add more to the G1 characters that I love so much like the IDW series has recently done.

    No way will the other one come out in May. I don’t mind delays. As long as they don’t get canceled.

    Unless orders are so low that it's not worth their time, it shouldn't be axed.

    If you have a local comic shop and if they order anything besides Marvel, DC or Funko....

    Viz's own website shows the direct market date has moved to March 10. Again, that's if you even have a LCS.

    I have lots of LCS in the NYC area, but I don't use them. Plenty of places online sell comics for cheap. Cheapgraphicnovels.com or my place instocktrades.com.

    So if you're in the US, there are much better options than Amazon, especially since those other online places pack the comics 1000x better than Amazon.

    That said, my main point was that if the book gets released in Feb, that should assuage any fears of it being canceled.

    And also, I also said Previews/Diamond might update so who knows. I'll depend on Previews/Diamond for the official release date.

    Interesting that they chose hardcover. When I think Manga I think paperback. Looking forward to these either way!

    Same here! I'm not a huge Manga collector, but I love large editions. The only other HC collection I have is the Battle Royale collections. HC just looks so much better on the shelf.
