Marvel/Titan Books Transformers Reading Order

I noticed that there doesn’t appear to be any sort of helpful reading guide for going through Titan Books’ reprints of the Generation 1 Transformers comics, from Marvel and Marvel UK, in chronological order. So, I’ve done my best to compile a list of my own.

I’ve broken the list down into issue-runs which form a story-arc, and named the graphic novel in which they can be found in brackets. Once you reach US #56, Simon Furman from Marvel UK takes over the writing of both sets of comics, and so the run is easier to follow, by simply reading the US collections from there.

There are also some black+white reprints of later UK comics Titan Books did, but I’ve never tracked those down, hence why they don’t appear on the list. If I do, I’ll see where they fit in, and add them where appropriate.

New VS Marquee Event

The newest VS event I can’t take place in due to no local Hobby League is here, and it’s a Modern: Bring Your Own Set (building teams only from one of the four most recently released sets) tournament. Details can be found HERE. The main reason that yet another event that’s passing me by has caught my attention, is this:

Whilst it’s partially ruined by the horrible “Chill Out!” phrase, there’s not much that can compare with Mr Freeze for sheer awesomeness, and it’s definitely my favourite playmat since the X-Men one from the Elite Series last year. I’m not sure how many there’s been since the X-Men one, but even so, still awesome.

Just a shame I’m probably never going to own one.
