UK Revenge of the Fallen comic

Postby Estall » Fri Jun 12, 2009 1:29 pm

#1 is out soon and is a renumbering of the UK movie comic.

NO-one seems to talk about it much, but I'm interested in what strips #1 will have - does anyone have any info?

I'm hoping we'll have a new UK strip, there'll probably be an Animated one, but for the remaining two strips, I'd imagine they'll do an IDW movie one (ROTF prequel - but missing out RoS?) and maybe start to run IDW's G1 line (as Megatron: Origin has just finished.

Any thoughts?
Or does anyone actually know?

Cheers.

My subscription copy of #1 arrived yesterday.

11 pages of new material acting as a prelude to the new movie (written by Simon Furman), continued next issue.

Back up strip is 22 pages of All Hail Megatron #1

Its been stated that reprints of Reign Of Starscream, Alliance, or Defiance movie prequels will not be printed in the comic, so it looks as though for the first 12 issue at least we have 11 pages of new material and 22 pages of AHM.

Overall a good fun read

Great story from Simon - but hope that people buying the comic over the next 12 months dont look at the back up strip as the reason to buy the title. Simon needs to continue with great stories to try & compensation for the other 22 pages in the comic.

I spent more time reading the street signs that Guido had draw which where more interesting than the story.

Is IDW going to be reprinting the rest of the UK series beyond those stories collected in "Tales of the Allspark"?

I really would like to read the "alternate" movie-verse that Furman set-up.

I may have read those, Thunderwing. I'm not sure exactly what's collected in Tales Of The Allspark, but if you PM me the complete contents of story titles, maybe I can help out.
I letter comics. Quite a bit.

Tales of the Allspark was just the stories from the first 8 issues of the UK magazine, before the 'alternate universe' bit started.

Edit: the series was actually called Saga of the Allspark.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Then the new stories in issues 9-25 of the UK Titan magazine are the ones that haven't been released in the US yet in any official capacity.

Anyone got any word on those? Denton? Mowry?

Are we referring here to the story 'Twilight's Last Gleaming'? It features a host of characters not seen in the movie, such as Arcee, Elita , Armorhide and Skyblast.

If so, said tale is sat on my shelf as we speak.

Sounds good - not got AHM at all, so I'll have something new to read!

However, how big is 'bumper size'?

Last issue was 60-odd pages, so I wonder what goes into the other half of the comic if the strips total 33 pages??

I will enjoy what we have, but I'd be very interested in discovering the logic behind a movie-related comic not reprinting movie stories and, why it's reprinting a G1 story halfway through (as in, won;t there be references to the dinobot story here and there and perhaps even all the Furman stuff preior to AHM)?

Odd...

All this "alt verse" stuff is getting a little confusing. This all started way back when with Action Force ... then they had their own Transformers stories ... now this!!

I've had it up to here with all this "British have to do it different" nonsense!

So ..... how do I get ahold of a copy? :)

Have they even been released in the UK? Hell, I penciled issue 24 and have no idea if it's even been released. Haven't seen it yet.
