Yesterday we reported here as a rumor that there would be a new United Kingdom Transformers comic to be published by Titan Books. We are happy to report that it is no longer a rumor. In fact Denyer has brought us word of some updates by Steve White made at Transfans.net. Here is the update:

A few titbits of interest. Andy Wildman and Nick Roche have joined the artist ranks.

Also, the first free gift (if that's your thang) will be TF dogtags - Autobot and Decepticon. FYI, first issue goes on sale 19th July.

Had a truly massive (and surprisingly) international response to my posting, which I'm very pleased about. Anybody sending in art or letters to my email address - can you mark it FAN ART please.

This is proving to be interesting to say the least.

Blimey... are we actually gonna get a decent UK comic for a change? The recent UK fare has been awful, and aimed at far too young a market to be readable.

His comment over there was "As for fears about a Panini-style title, it'll be over my putrescent, maggot-blown corpse before that happens."

So, fingers crossed...

What about shipping out some copies to the countries that still recognize the Queen as their head of state huh?

Good news, everyone! [/Farnsworth]

FYI, Geoff is now confirmed for issue 1 - don't worry, I'll be leaning on him, although he is very excited, well, excited enough to come out of comics retirement...

We're also pushing worldwide subscriptions on this title - we have it on a lot of Titan titles and I think this one is just begging for it.[/quote]

I'm reasonably excited about this, although IDW's Escalation, Soundwave spotlight, Kup spotlight, Galvatron spotlight and Megatron origin are more than enough to keep me going for the moment.

Has Spotlight: Soundwave been released yet?
Im certainI have read it, the references made megatron in it have stayed in my head (for so many reasons), but i cannot find the issue anywhere in my collection, nor can i find any preview of it that i could have read previosuly.

Maybe im just going mental... :?

No, it hasn't been released. It's supposed to be out this month with Escalation #5.

Woodseats of Abbeydale Road. Luckily its only a 15 min hungover stagger from my house, but that still means getting up on a Saturday whilst the clock still says AM.

Criminal I tell you!

Could be worse. You could be walking at night through Manor, Ecclesfield or Filth Park.

I can see how they wouldn't appreciate the ruffles in areas such as those.
