His titles for the latter include Transformers: Infiltration, Escalation, Devastation & Revelation; Maximum Dinobots; Beast Wars: The Gathering & The Ascending; Transformers: Stormbringer, Transformers: Nefarious and Transformers: Spotlight. His other comic book credits include Doctor Who, Death’s Head, Death's Head 3.0, Alpha Flight, Turok, She-Hulk, Robocop, What If?, StarCraft, Wallace & Gromit, and Torchwood.
In the TV animation field, Furman has written on shows including Beast Wars, Dan Dare, X-Men: Evolution, and A.T.O.M., and served as lead writer and script supervisor on The Matt Hatter Chronicles. Editorially, Furman worked on Titan Books’ range of Transformers titles and their "Comics Creators" series.

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.
That being said, however, this collection is still worthy for a Transformers fan. This volume features Target: 2006, a key story that many fans believe is the start of the golden age of Simon Furman's run on Transformers. It's the first story to feature the new characters in the then current Transformers: The Movie. These characters would prominently feature over the next 100 plus issues of the UK Transformers comic.
This collected volume is a great way for US Transformers comic fans who have only heard of these stories before to be able to read them for the first time. Because of Target: 2006, Volume 3 might actually be one of the better ones to start with. While the previous 2 volumes are also good choices, the stories within them are when Simon Furman was starting to settle into the role as the head writer. The earlier stories, while good, are not as good as, say, Target: 2006 and on.
