Format: Paperback
The term `Rise and Fall of' has become so famous, that it has been applied to so many things. And in my opinion, Death's Head is one of those (quite frankly) awesome things that had an amazing rise and an unfathomable fall that I always have a hard time understanding just how it could've happened.

When writing Transformers comics, Simon Furman really came up with a one-of-a-kind idea when he created Death's Head. And it was further developed and improved when Geoff Senior drew those first character designs. I mean, come on! A mechanoid bounty-hunter with a demon's skull-like head, that's capable of swapping his left hand with weapons, gets upset if you call him a bounty-hunter, and says "yes?" after almost every sentence, is BOUND to be an instant winner ANY day.

Simon Furman always knew what he was doing with Death's Head. And that's evident right at the start of this collection. "High Noon, Tex!" is a brilliant one-page strip that appeared throughout all the various Marvel UK titles so that Death's Head would be exclusive to Marvel. A smart tactic that allowed the character to live outside what was to follow.

All those die-hard Transformers fans out there know that "High Noon, Tex!" was a way of building up hype for what would be a phenomenal run in the UK Transformers comic (starting in issue #113 and ending in issue #151), where Death's Head would play a huge role in the Galvatron Saga (see the TF collections Fallen Angel and Legacy of Unicron). The second story in this collection, "The Crossroads of Time", follows on directly from the events of Legacy of Unicron. After entering a time portal with his last targets (the Decepticons Cyclonus and Scourge), Death's Head somehow went down a separate path from them altogether.

The content of the volume is awesome, as other reviews have said. But I think that you should be aware that this is just volume 1 of 2, containing the stories from Doctor Who #135, Dragon's Claws #5 and Death's Head #1-7.

The further stories (including the stuff featuring the F4 and Iron Man mentioned above) will be in Volume 2.

Oh, and that's not the real cover. :P

Still, buy it anyway, yes?

I'm with reviewer R.Wood on The bring back Deaths Head.

I collected the comics when they 1st came out (along with Dragon Claws) and Its great to see them all together in this graphic novel.

Ok so the art work may not be outstanding but the character Deaths Head is a classic comic book anti hero.

If you collected Deaths Head the 1st time around you may want to check this out. If your new to Deaths head and in to comics then it something you should def check out.

So why not five stars? well I am accounting for nostalgia so off goes the fifth star.
Marvel Uk did some great comics back in the day, deaths head obviously, dragons claws, and all the licenced comics too. I felt that Deaths head always worked best when further removed from from the marvel universe (the main super heroes) and licenced properties. While I understand the need for the crossovers and if it had not been for DH starting in transformers I would never have heard of it so I cannot complain too much.
That said the stories were all well thought and and never screamed shamless cash in.
However once reintroduced via dragons claws he found his place,a future setting that was perfectly ruthless for such a character. The bulk of that material is here. buy and enjoy. I certainly did.
