Looking forward to picking this up as well as Volume 2 and Volume 3.


Do we know if there will be a volume 3? I had presumed that the remaining G1 content would be in book 2 but it's been a while since I looked at my original compilation so I can't be certain how much content remains.

Yes. I posted an Amazon link to it previously. Volume 2 contains The Headmasters, the Headmasters one-shot, and Masterforce, while Volume 3 has Victory, the Zone one-shot, and the Battlestars one-shot.

Thanks for the info, Sabrblade. I updated the news story to have the correct info about Volume 2 and 3. :)

Now will this book work in traditional manga form, where you read back to front?

Great review. These stories definitely spark joy, and remind me why I’m such a big Transformers fan in the first place. I read a few chapters last night, and I’m looking forward to reading more tonight. Highly recommended.

Got mine in late last night after work and gave it a quick thumb through. Looks absolutely amazing for a comprehensive compilation. Really looking forward to a chance to sit down and go through it cover to cover. For the low MSRP versus what it would have cost to hunt these all down, its a great value as well.

My copy arrived yesterday, went straight to the top of my manga to-read pile and it has me refocused on finishing Gundam: Ecole du Ciel so I can get to it. Excellent review here, helps set expectations though it's in line with what I'd assumed. Very happy to see this released!

"Marvel Transformers comics and my prized (embarrassingly) KISS Players Manga collection. "
Truth Be told, I'd like to see the Kiss Players Manga done here too. It sounded so bizarre I'd like to see it.

Eh, it's content is kinda pornographic, though. Not exactly the same audience that this manga was aimed at (as in, young kids).

Transformers KISS Players is not pornographic. It does have a level of adult sexual content that some many find inappropriate (especially when associated with Transformers), but it's not pornographic. Hustler and Penthouse magazines are pornographic.

Where can I purchase the Kiss Player Manga. I dig anything Japanese and Transformers and they look fun as heck.

What I found weird about it, is you couldn't find a copy of it online. Like so many manga and comic books can be found to read, and yet this one, nadda.

I, uh, have scans. :-|

Never looked at them, knowing what they contain, but I got them since they were included with the fansubbed release of Car Robots.
