TF-UK A-GO-GO #6

Issue #6 (doesn’t time fly?) of Titan’s Transformers UK comic/magazine hits stores this week (December 6th to be precise). New/exclusive comic strip material comes in the shape of a 10pp Jazz story, set during the IDW prequel to the new Transformers movie (out this week on DVD, by the way), rounding off the first clutch of interconnected UK stories. Separated from his fellow Autobots Ratchet and Ironhide by Devastator’s foldspace warhead (in #2), Jazz finds himself alone on a planet rich in accumulated knowledge and universal secrets, literally immersed in data. Far from unhappy about his predicament, Jazz decides he simply doesn’t ever want to be found, a decision that may just cost him dearly. Story is by me, art is by the ever-wonderful Marcelo Matere (Transformers Spotlight: Soundwave and the upcoming Transformers Spotlight: Grimlock). The issue also features a Starscream profile, a free TF target game, interviews with the stars of the movie and a chance to win movie DVDs. For more information (and a taster of the Marcelo’s amazing interior art), check out Titan’s TF Myspace page here, and click on the link below for a look-see at the cover.

    Ooh. Matere doing Grimlock. Tangent time, I’m afraid (sorry!) – any word on when that comic’s due?

    You may have made a fatal error there Simon, as I suspect the responses to this script-wrap will be more concerned with Spotlight: Big G (see Chris N’s post above)

    I’m just glad these strips are being released in a trade, so those of us not in the UK can get em’.

    Great to hear about Matere on Grimlock. His Soundwave stuff was awesome.

  7. bassbot says:

    As far as I know, there are definitely TPB plans, for both sides the Atlantic I believe (though possibly different editions/formats). As for Spotlight Grimlock, that one’s March 08.

    Thanks for the info!

    I really liked this Jazz story. I thought it worked really well, playing in to Jazz’s love of alien cultures and his possibly addictive personality.
