Yes! After over two decades, the orignal story of the Transformers (which was first published in the 1980's/90's) returns! It's been a long wait. As a massive fan of the orignal comic (it was pretty much all I read when I was growing up), I was overjoyed to hear of its comeback - and with the original creative team too!
Just got my copy today, and even though I've been buying the single issues of this comic every month I read it straight away. It reads great in trade form (perhaps even better than in single issues), and the story builds nicely. There's lots going on in this first stork ark (sic) and plenty of surprises.
The art (from original artist Andrew Wildman) is great, and the vivid colouring (by newcomer John-Paul Bove) is also excellent, giving the book a very distinctive and fresh look. The art somehow manages to be retro, yet relevant, and took me by surprise when I picked up the first issue (well, issue 80.5 - given away on Free Comic Book Day, which is also thankfully included here). My only slight quibble with the art is that sometimes I struggle to get a feel for the environment, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment at all. Credit should also go to inker Stephen Baskerville, who's thick linework looks amazing.
It's great that all the covers from the series are included throughout this book (by Andrew, Guido Guidi and the excellent Geoff Senior - my personal favourite Transformers artist of all time). There's also a nice tribute page to one of the fallen Transformers at the end of the book, which came as a nice bonus.
If you were a fan of the original series, this book is much more than a trip down memory lane. I'd definitely recommend picking this up, and hopefully newer readers will also give this a chance. It was almost impossible for Regeneration One to live up to my sky-high hopes, but it has started well, and I can't wait to see where the story will take these characters next...
