Also out this week, but only in the UK, on Thursday 24th, is issue #11 of Titan’s Transformers comic/magazine, featuring (in amongst more comic strip, features and competitions) the third part of the apocalyptic Twilight’s Last Gleaming. If you remember, TLG takes an alternate look at post live-action movie events, exploring a near-future in the which Decepticons are the victors and Autobots are an endangered species. Starscream continues his machinations this episode, throwing a spanner in the Autobots’ carefully laid plans to further his own diabolical agenda. Forced into desperate action the moon-based Autobots head for Earth and their respective dates with destiny. And Bumblebee takes on Megatron (no prizes for guessing how that one turns out) and Mikaela takes on Frenzy (not as one-sided as you might think) and Ironhide and Ratchet come up against… well, that’d be telling! Art this issue comes from Paul Ridgon, and it rocks!

    Ah man, I so wanted to give a clue, but couldn’t think of one without giving the game away! By the way, Simon didn’t say how awesome the artwork in #11 is, so I will! TLG just keeps getting better!

    Who’s on art duties for this issue?

    Oops, huge apologies to Paul Ridgon, who did the art for the issue. Which is indeed awesome. I’ve updated/edited the original post accordingly.

    It’s not my art on 11, mine’s on 12 Simon. I don’t know the name of the artist on 11, but it’s damn fine work. Sorry for the confusion 😉

    It’s Fabio Makoto Ono who does the art for this issue.

    Simon, since Mr. Ryall has mentioned that IDW has no actual link to the TFUK mag’s original material, is this going to confuse readers when ‘Reign of Starscream’ is finally reprinted in the TFUK mag?
    Or do you have a cunning plan?

    Since you have an astounding knack for fitting in new material to a series (loved the old Marvel TF mag – can you tell?), do you have any intentions to follow a similar tack now?

    I think the real question on everyone’s lips is – who’s the bod doing Starscream in the letters page? He seems to be having fun!
