THE TRANSFORMERS MAGAZINE #1

Written by Simon Furman, Bob Budiansky and Brad Mick, art by Don Figueroa and Jose Delbo, cover by Robby Musso.

Hearkening back to the great b&w comic book magazines of yesteryear, this debut magazine offers three classic tales from three different eras -- spanning The Transformers' run of over 20 years. This special 8-1/2" x 11" magazine format contains stories from the early Marvel days (issue #42, "People Power"), days to the Dreamwave (Generation 1, Vol. 3, #1) adventures to the all-new chapters of Transformers lore from IDW (Stormbringer #1), all underneath a brand-new cover from artist Robby Musso (Transformers Spotlight: Ultra Magnus).

The saga of the Transformers' secret war on Earth -- begun in The Transformers: Infiltration -- continues with Phase Two: Escalation. With the monumental menaces of Megatron and Ore-13 looming, the Autobots could be forgiven for thinking things couldn't get much worse. But, as Optimus Prime musters his response to the mounting threat, the Machination strikes -- with shocking and tragic consequences!

The idea of doing the movie adaptation a month before the movie is laughably shortsighted. They should have done it concurrently with the prequel instead. (Or better yet, in place of the prequel.)

Maybe it isn't an addaptation of the Michael Bay movie at all... maybe they're taking another shot at the '85 cartoon movie--you know, like actually add in those "cut" scenes that they promised...

I know, I'm dreaming--but there's no law against it! :-)

I stopped buying the comics when they raised the price. I may consider buying the spotlight TPB though. Too bad it won't have Soundwave or Megs.

That TF Magazine is the most pointless release ever. EIGHT bucks for a black and white rag that reproduces old stories that have been reprinted many times before.... but then in color! I wonder if anyone will be stupid enough to buy that.

The Movie stuff doesn't interest me, so it looks like I won't be getting anything that month. A first. IDW usually has at least one or two titles that interest me...

Yeah, same here. Nothing that sounds appealing at all. I, however, am not shocked. Only thing worthwhile coming up is the Megatron origin story.
