Next week sees the release of “Transformers” #1, an all-new beginning for the saga at IDW Publishing, succeeding the previous continuity that ended last year. It arrives almost 35 years after Marvel Comics first launched the property on May 8, 1984, which led us to wonder, what is the best Transformers comic book run? There are plenty of choices: we could’ve filled this list with Simon Furman’s countless runs at Marvel (US and UK), Dreamwave, Titan and IDW alone, and we’ve undoubtedly missed many more, from various Japanese pack-in material to the many, many Transformers Collectors’ Club comics.
Ultimately, we’ve made a selection of the most complete and well-regarded runs from every era of the franchise. However, if you want to make the argument that Furman’s abruptly cancelled “War Within,” or “All Hail Megatron” is the best Transformers comic of all time, then feel free to type in and submit your choice in the “other” option. After all – freedom is the right of all sentient beings.
