I've been reading the forum here for quite a few years now, and actually signed up back in '09. Yet never felt compelled to post until recently.
I'm really enjoying the new direction that Barber and Roberts are taking the book in.
My introduction to TF came with the cartoon and toys, back in '84 or '85 not sure which. I was born in the UK - and lived there for most of my life. So, like other Brits, my exposure to the cartoon was minimal beyond the first few episodes of season 1 and the movie.
The comic is what really made me a TF fan.
The year before I moved to the US I stumbled across IDW's Transformers #1, having completely missed DW's run. (in fact - I didn't even know it existed).
I have every issue - bar a few spotlights of the IDW run, and have pretty much enjoyed everything so far. (some stories more than others)
This forum has been a big part of the comic experience for me too, knowing that certain issues would probably get a certain reaction, that's almost been as enjoyable as the comic, good or bad!
Well, that's basically it. For now.
