The art is so weird and the stories just not there yet.

I enjoyed this immensely. Full of shorter stories that were designed to complement the Us Transformers comics that were being reprinted in Marvel UK, they have a delightful style all of their own.

Bought this book out of nostagia for the Transformers comic I used to get as a child - certainly a superior incarnation than the current films.

The book comes with a bit of background about how it came to be created, which is quite interesting.

It's a fascinating and comprehensive look at the British Transformers scene, and for an American fan, it doesn't get any better.

Last two stories (text only) were not well written but wasn't bad. Loved how circuit breaker was in more then be story. I understand as a anti hero she'd have problems but still liked the character.

3 1/2 stars.
The beginning of the UK Transformers is a little wobbly, but by issue 10 they seem to know where they're going with it. The art was great some issues, mediocre other issues.
