Finally I was starting to get a little worried these books had been cancelled.

I don't know what listing you read, but it can't be coming out then, because it wasn't in the Previews catalogue. In fact, this is the first I've ever heard about a release date for it.

Amazon originally had it listed as coming December 11, 2012, and now they've bumped it back further to February 5, 2013, as it now says.

What date are you referring to when you say "it can't be coming out then"? If it's the December one, well, duh. It would already have been out by now if it were. If it's the current February one, then that only further ticks me off. :BOOM:

I'm referring to the February one, because the Previews catalogue for that month came out last month, and this wasn’t among the TF titles listed as coming out from IDW.

Then again, now that we have a cover image, it's proof that it IS going to be released. When? Dunno. Probably April (but don't hold me to that).

Do the Previews usually show these TPB releases?

Also, it could be a case like back when you pointed out that the Previews didn't show the Kodansha Sailor Moon Volume 1 release on the date I said that would come, yet it did still get released on that date since I bought it from my local Barnes and Noble on that very day.

They showed the first three, so yeah.

Granted. A quick search of the Chapters website shows that they have a listing for it that has the same release date as the one mentioned in the first post. So maybe it'll get released in bookstores first, then solicited in the Previews for release in comic shops in April (or later).

On the other hand, that's not usually the way it works. First they get solicited in the Previews, then it gets released in the bookstores.

Like I said, I dunno, really. It just seems kinda weird that a bookstore would put up a listing for it with a release date in a month that IDW didn’t say it was coming out in.

In the US series, which issue numbers are these? Or is this UK-exclusive stuff?

The latter.

I never read any of the UK stuff. Do these volumes put the UK stories together seamlessly? Or are there spots where you can tell they left out stuff pertaining to the US Marvel stuff?

They put the stories mostly in the order they were originally released. But, there's a whole lot more content to these volumes than the stories. These books are LOADED with editorials written by James Roberts, in which he gives a complete history of Marvel Comics UK in their working on the UK version of the Transformers comic, as well as interviewing many individuals involved with the comic and giving behind the scenes details about each issue, including their chronological placement and relation to each other and to the U.S. issues. Anyone who reads these volumes shouldn't get lost with all the information put into them to make certain the readers understand how and where these stories fit with the U.S. stories and then some. ;)

Hmm. Guess you CAN hold me to that.
