Recommend me some older Transformer comic

Post by Shinobi » Wed Jun 28, 2017 8:48 am

I had a pile of the UK Simon Furman comics which I was always told where the best, unfortunately it had several other marvel strips. Also own full circle graphic novel which was brilliant. Now this is where it's getting confusing for me friend lent me the Generation 2 Jahaxus(spelt wrong) graphic novel where Durham says it got binned off. And some other possibly newer comics when all the Dinobots die except Grimlock and he brings them back in this lake. Also Galvatron has this conjoined cup/Megatron creature and Unicrons head enslaves everyone on Junkion

I can't really recommend any but it might be worth checking some of these out. I've picked up the odd one to have a read of at some point.

Thanks Ferg can you recommend any other comic's. I read Monsteress (done by 2 women who do the sonic art for Sega) the art is stunning but incredibly violent fantasy girl with demon in her, that forces her to eat kill people and eat them, otherwise it eats her.. Got all 10 issues Star Wars and Darth Vader, and Batman Rebirth the war of Jokes and Riddles well Joker kills Riddler at the end of the first comic Just fancy something else to read.. Got all the Marvel GI Joes so I thought Transformers maybe I'd start on next

I'd recommend Target 2006, Dinobot Hunt, Prey, and Wrath of Guardian/Wrath of Grimlock. They're available in trade for very little. If you want Target 2006 I may know where there's a copy going spare?

A few years back, I started buying some of the collected books of the Simon Furman comics, a lady at my work used to talk about her husband having 1000s of comics and how he collected them and was really into all that. Anyhow the day after she left the company, some of my books arrived and I was showing them to another colleague and they said oh that's so and so's husband, didn't you know? I couldn't believe it all those years she'd talked to me about him and comics, the day she leave I only twig she was Simon Furmans wife! I do remember buying the comic books on here though.

I would say anything drawn by either Geoff Senior or Lee Sullivan is a good shout, as I always enjoyed those.

I think a lot of Target 2006 was done by them both.
It's like an old pair of slippers, isn't it?
