Format: Paperback
Titan's final Transformers book collects all the UK black-and-white strips which haven't been seen in previous volumes. Whereas the other books had a plot line or a theme running through them, 'Perchance to Dream' is little more than a round-up of the missing stories, with little sense of cohesion - the book features three major storylines, none of which are remotely connected to one another. Fortunately, a good three quarters of the volume ranks amongst the absolute best of the black and white tales.
The story 'Perchance to Dream' itself is a compendium piece in the style of the earlier 'Aspects of Evil', and may even surpass that series. Here, we witness the dreams of five deactivated Autobots as their subconsious minds run over events from their pasts. The series was presumably created at the request of Hasbro UK who at the time were pushing a rerelease of some of the older toys, and the advantage is that some characters who hadn't been seen for years were finally given a starring role once again. Sunstreaker, in particular, hadn't been seen anywhere since the early issues of the US comic. It was great to have the characters back again, and was a good precursor to the already collected 'Earthforce' stories - why that particular volume came out before this one is beyond me.
'The Big Shutdown', a two-parter, is probably the greatest of all the black and white strips, and the only one to be rerun in colour during the remainder of the comic's lifetime - although not necessarily to the strip's advantage.

Format: Paperback
In what seems to be the last of the UK black and white Transformers pocketbooks, yet more robotic adventures await with the expertise of prolific scribe Simon Furman bringing them to life. A host of renowned Transformers artists contribute including Andrew Wildman and Geoff Senior make these monochrome tales shine. While each story is relatively short- only about 6 pages- enough action is packed in to satisfy the most hardened transfan. All this coupled with the handy "pocketbook" format allows the quick enjoyment of bite-sized chunks of metal mayhem. A must have in any Transformers library as this volume chronicles the last days of the Marvel UK stories, before the end of Generation 1 with the story "End of the Road!".
While the content of this volume is great, sadly my copy was not. Described as "Used- Good" it's a bit of an overstatement, with dogged corners, loose binding, dirty pages, creases, scratches and blotches of who-knows-what on the cover I would say my copy was "Used- Readable" if not "poor". Sorry Greener Books.

Great for a Transfan no so much for the casual reader 21 Feb. 2008
By SunnySideUP - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great little read for the true transfan. The black and white makes it difficult to tell apart similar characters at times but its not a major draw back. If you are a hard core fan and love G1 this is a good little book to take with you for a light read. If your are new to transformers this book probably won't hold much interest for you and you probably won't understand muchof it.
