Christopher Colton | 5 comments With regards to to this book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I asked for a book merge to be done last night; someone had created a page for the paperback version of "Transformers/G.I. Joe: First Strike - Champions" under an entirely different name (and with the wrong author; Mairghread Scott was not an author on Champions), which needed to be merged into the existing page for the Kindle edition.

Unfortunately, whoever did the merge instead merged it into the page for "Transformers/G.I. Joe: First Strike", which is a different book.

Can someone please correct this? The Champions paperback should instead be an edition of this:

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments who is the author on Champions?
or as there are more authors an editor would be good as primary author. (do I see that correctly that it's Chris Ryall?)

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments and: the "look inside" on amazon says "originally published as Transformers: First Strike, G.I. Joe: First Strike, Mask: First Strike, Micronauts: First Strike and Rom First Strike"
So that would be just a new edition of that?
Then the combining would be correct..
(but: I do have not much knowledge of comics so I might miss something here)


Christopher Colton | 5 comments The details on the Champions kindle edition entry at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... appear to be correct with respect to the authors, with the exception that Mairghread Scott is not actually credited anywhere in the book (she was only a writer on the main First Strike book, not the Champions one).

As to the "originally published" bit, that just means that this is a collection containing multiple separate releases in one volume.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments I separated the Champions editons out and combined it with it's kindle edition.
(off to bed now)


Christopher Colton | 5 comments Perfect, everything looks good now. Thanks!
