    There hasn't been any mention of any TF comics (barring the crossovers) happening after the cancellation of the current ongoing. Maybe IDW will reveal something at the virtual comic con

    Yeah, that was released last year, but I think it is supposed to be getting another printing or something before/around the time Secrets and Lies come out

    The Transformers '84 #0 is by Furman and Guido and it's basically a prequel to the original Marvel US and UK series and explains who was the Man of Iron in the UK story of the same name. It gets some use of Punch/Counterpunch, Cloudraker, Fastlane, Wingspan, Pounce, (the Autobot and Decepticon Clones respectfully), Flywheels, and makes Optimus Prime into a real bastard.

    IMHO #0 feels more like a back-up story from an annual than a $5.00 US book and it's a very quick read. Also what is the point of this book? If this is a start of a new "prequel" book to the original US with stronger connections to the UK series than Regeneration One had because the "All-New, All-Different IDW G1 Universe" isn't setting the world of comics on fire and if you have to get Furman and company to do a continuation to the Marvel US (which didn't need one to begin with as rushed as the various storylines were in #76-80 they didn't feel that rushed to me and came to satisfactory conclusion in #80 well for me at least) and the UK series, for a bunch of side stories, and/or a prequel then you're pandering to old school TF Marvel comic fans, who will support it but I doubt the fanbase for that will last any longer than Regeneration One did and you end up wasting time and resources on projects that could be better used to make the "All-New, All-Different IDW G1 Universe" better. This book offers nothing better for a 35+ year old series, that is largely out of print, nothing but a series of confusing retcons and more convoluted nonsense to an already convoluted and confusing universe that is 35+ years old series and that IDW can't keep around on a regular basis like G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero or finish collecting TPB series because AFAIK Transformers UK Classics is still incomplete and IDW has never reprinted G2 series.

    It's also IMHO probably one of the worst written and one the most cynical cash grab stories in the entire history of Transformers comics from all publishers around the world and that is saying something.


    ^The above was a post I made about TF'84 #0 before the mini-series was announced at a TF message board some time ago I made some slight edits to update it and clarify somethings in it, and before you ask: I still stand by what said about Transformers '84 #0 there and here.
