Out this week (Jan 31st), in the UK only, is issue #8 of Titan’s Transformers comic/magazine. As usual, in amongst the features, free gifts and general fabulousness, there’s an all-new, UK-original comic strip to be found. This one, featuring Ironhide and an elite Special Forces unit, is set in the immediate aftermath of the movie and takes the action back to Qatar, where the lethal Scorponok was last seen burrowing deep beneath the desert sand to escape an aerial bombardment. That particular loose end is (over)due to get wrapped up in spectacular style, but things don’t quite go as planned for Autobot and escort! Story is by me, art by Staz Johnson (doing his first Transformers work since… I don’t know when!). The issue (as well as the continuing saga of Beast Wars and the Movie Prequel) contains a Bonecrusher character profile, a lesson in How To Draw Bumblebee and the usual reader letters & art. Plus, free TF tattoos and sweat band! For a look at the cover and some of Staz’s epic interior strip art, click on the link and thumbnail (respectively) below. And watch this space for upcoming details of US happenings in the UK movie-verse direction!

    Staz’ work on this is awesome. His style just totally suits the movie-bots. Here’s hoping he does more!

    My word hasn’t Staz come on a long way since his days on the original UK title? I’m really enjoying the UK title and hope it runs for a looong time! Keep up the good work Mr Furman. Looking forward to ‘The Gleaming’ (bet its not as sparkly as it sounds…)

    Another enjoyable lead strip. I look forward to ‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming’.

    Much as I’ve enjoyed these two (#8’s Scorponok story and #7’s Starscream addendum) diversions into the main movie continuity, things really kick off in #9. ‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming’ heralds a whole new direction for the UK-comic, and all the limitations are just gone. Expect, well, apocalypse… and then some!
