The volume is beautifully packaged, with gloss over the spine and matte surfacing over the cover art. IDW will be the first to state that the comics are not bound in strict chronological order, but rather in an order where the story can be best appreciated - and I must say it's hard to disagree with the choice so far.
Volume 1 is an excellent compilation of Megatron Origin, six Spotlights, and Infiltration. It kicks of the IDW Collection series with a bang, and with value for money that is almost impossible to beat (especially coming form Australia!!). For those who have not gotten into Transformers IDW, there is simply no better way to start!
Whilst individual comic reviews can be found elsewhere, for completeness here is my take on those included here (Both numbers out of 10, first # Art, second # Story):
Megatron Origin - 7/9
Infiltration - 7/9
Blurr - 8/7
Cliffjumper - 8/8
Shockwave - 7/6
Nightbeat - 5/6
Hot Rod - 7/8
Soundwave - 7/7
If you're an old G1 fan like I am and miss those old characters, this is the book series to get! Don't pass this one up!
I took my time with this first volume as I see there are 8 Volumes in the first phase so I've been juggling an issue of this along with other comics and books. I can't wait to dive in to the 2nd volume.
The reason I picked this up is because I heard about a series where the decepticons are in control (All Hail Megatron). That series of issues isn't until the 4th volume(I think). Being the completion-obsessed that I am, I thought I'd start from the beginning.
I see that this Volume is 40 dollars now. When I bought it, it was around 32 dollars so you might be able to catch this on sale if you keep an eye on it.
The binding really is superb. I've got it on my bookshelf next to the GiJoe version that's similar
