I've always wanted to read the UK-exclusive comics, but it was too daunting to collect because info on which issues contained exclusive content was extremely hard to find. The work has finally been done for me!! This book is AWESOME. The stories are fantastic. The artwork is great, as many of these strips are painted with paintbrush. But most important to me (with my extreme collect-em all mentality) is that this is the COMPLETE works of UK Transformers, including material from the main comic strip as well as material that appeared elsewhere, such as the "Transformers Annual".

There is tons of bonus materials. Every strip has background info and interviews with the creators, which sometimes gets too technical, but may be of interest to comic diehards... but I'd rather them deluge us with info, than leave things out. This book contains all the UK covers, old Transformers ads, all kinds of other Transformers segments that appeared in the comics, tryout artwork from current artists, and everything else they could find. This book was meticulously assembled by someone who really cared.

This piece of G1 is finally available for American fans. I can't recommend it high enough for fans of the cartoon and toys.

I love both the US & the UK Transformers comics. While the US Transformers comic had a great start it then got spotty for a bit until Simon Furman took over. The UK comics however were nothing but awesome straight from the get-go. Even when the format turned into 5 page stories in black and white each issue, it still had some very good stories for the most part, although I wish Furman had made the Earhforce stories a little easier to place in the continuity. It was only towards the very end that it jumped the shark, but even then the last 3 stories weren’t the worst of the series. I have all of the Titan Books collections (except for Legacy of Unicron & Second Generation) & have read them countless times over the years. They always entertain, though I wish they had arranged the stories in a more chronological order. It wasn’t so bad for the color collections, but the black and white volumes were just all over the place but hey, what can you do? I got this collection because it’s the only way to get some of these stories. I paid less than $10 for it with shipping & handling, & it was so good I for one won’t mind double dipping (like I did with the DVDs of the cartoon) if it means a better and more complete collection, especially if they color the black & white strips. Here’s a review of the stories.

Man of Iron: I had read this one previously in issues 33 & 34 of the US comic, & it’s still quite good. By the way, if you’re wondering about where this story and the next 2 fit in the continuity, don’t believe what the text says in here. I’m going to quote TFArchive. It’s best to slot this story after issue #40.

Enemy Within: This was actually one of the major incentives for me to buy this (along with Crisis of Command). I am a huge Brawn fan.

While the Transformers US stories in the 80s are better read by fans of the time or hardcore younger fans, the UK storyline cna be read by anyone!!
You do not need to be a Transformers fan to appreciate the brilliant storyline (most written by now famous author Simon Furman), or the truly gorgeous art of these British products.
Even as the comics switched to digital coloring in this volume (let's not forget the use of watercolours in some of their earlier stories), they still managed a brilliancy of colours and a quality that never deplenished.
Add to that all the explicative pages that give the hardcore fan scrumptious behind the scenes tidbits or the novice a great explication of the Transformers lore and culture.
A great sci-fi saga to newcomers, a perfect gem to fans.

Very impressed with the high quality of this book. The binding is sturdy - won't fall apart. The pages are simply glorious; not glossy but thick and the art is vibrant. Loaded with extra content as well, including a history of UK Transformers, covers, and some bonus ephemera in the back.
Highly recommend to any Transformers fan.
