Download or read book Transformation: A Personal Journey Through the British Transformers Comic Volume 2: 1987-1989 written by Stuart Webb and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2017-07-20 with total page 370 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: By 1987, the British Transformers was at the peak of its powers. Alternating between US reprints showing the struggle for leadership within the Autobot and Decepticon forces and UK material dealing with the insane future Decepticon Galvatron's attempts to rule yesterday, what had started as a toy advert had become a sprawling space opera seared into the minds of an entire generation. Stuart Webb was one such reader, and in 2012 he began a journey looking through every single issue of the series, commenting on its highs and lows. He became the first person to look at every backup strip and editorial and how they worked together to create the most thorough exploration of a publishing phenomenon ever undertaken. It's also highly personal, full of humour and silliness and even the occasionally thoughtful moment. The final result is an essential read, not just for Transformers fans, but also for those interested in the history of Marvel UK and the impact this simple little comic had on an entire generation.
