Format: Paperback
This book is set before 'End of the Road' and 'All falll down'. It is a story of Ratchets anguish of not being able to repair his fellow comrades. It tells of how Megatron is not dead, and welcomes the return and debute of Starscream, Jazz, Bumblebee, and Grimlock as Classic Pretenders. The story is just FANTASTIC, Simon Furman at his best. It is a must for any TF fan or collector as myself.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 April 2002
Format: Paperback
When Simon Furman started writing for the American Transformers comic in 1989 he brought with him five years' experience on the British comic, with its more mature storylines and innovative ideas. So as perhaps not to stun the US readers too much (who were used to frankly mediocre stories up until this point), he starts off with an apparently self-contained story which sees Autobot medic Ratchet kidnapped by a familiar enemy to put in motion an insidious scheme to upset the Autobot-Decepticon balance of power on Earth. After that four-issue story is completed, the plot expands to incorporate the genesis of the Transformers race and the revelation that their arch-nemesis Unicron is now spoiling for their blood. The writing is reasonable in this story, but only picks up towards the end as Furman feels more comfortable with the US-length comics (which were twice the length of the UK ones) and more confident that the readers are following his more serialised, in-depth storyline. Unfortunately, the art lets the book down. Jose Delbo was okay for his time, but seems rather poor by today's standards. Geoff Senior is rather superior, but is not served well by the reproduction here in the graphic novel format. Andy Wildman's work in All Fall Down and End of the Road is vastly superior. Titan could also have released the books in order: anyone and everyone reading this will already have read the previous two volumes and know how the story ends. Nevertheless, this is a surprisingly rewarding read, a foretaste of the even higher standards ahead in Matrix Quest.

This book took me back to when I originally read the sories at the age of 9. At a rate of only a few pages a week in the UK comic it took time to see the whole picture, but collected together I could now read the whole lot in one go.
Simon Furman had long held a strong reputation in the UK for the complexity of his Transformers stories but his start on the US comic allowed him to create a truly awesome epic. This is a tale of hope and despair, of deceptions and revelations and it is all the better for it. Wisely he doesn't focus upon the Transformers' ability to change shape (by my reckoning in the first four issue there are only six characters who ever transform, all in the heat of action) but instead upon their personalities and origins. Jose Delbo's art is reasonable, but Geoff Senior's is truly out of this world and his contributions here alone could easily qualify him as the greatest TF artist of all time.
It was a tragedy that when these stories were originally printed interest in the TFs was waning and sales on the comic fell, with the result that many fans never got to read these stories. This trade paperback and its fellows goes a long way towards rectifying that state and I hope many more are released.

Simon Furman's first seven US stories, and to begin with he seems to be finding his feet, making the transition from Bob Budianski's far fetched (and occasionally, frankly daft) stories to his own, more realistic and mature storytelling style. Even with the first tale, 'Back from the Dead', however, the signs were there that things were about to improve, which wasn't too surprising - moving the emphasis away from the humans and back onto the robots, as it should be, and finishing his first issue with a shock reappearance (and one which contradicted the UK stories he'd been writing, which he would have to hastily explain - not entirely satisfactorally - to UK readers). By the time of 'Primal Scream', things were really taking off and the new dawn for the US comic had really arrived. At this time the UK comic's standards were slipping away dramatically, but it didn't really matter - with Simon Furman writing, and his fellow Brits Geoff Senior and Andy Wildman coming on board as artists, the US comic was about to become the UK comic.

HASH(0x8d8840a8) out of 5 stars Every saga has a beginning, and this is it! 24 Jun. 2002
By Andrew Nieporent - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Primal Scream" collects the first seven issues (#56-62) of Transformers comic book written by Simon Furman. When he came on, the comic was not doing well. The previous writer, Bob Budiansky, had started to write hack work (The Carwash of Doom, Micromaster Wrestling, the Mechannibals, the Roadjammers, Club Con, Prime killing himself over a video game, etc.), and things looked bleak. But Simon Furman, who had written most of the British series, saved the book, and kept it running for another two years. The book starts with Ratchet, who faces the task of repairing deactivated Transformers. It soon moves to the return of Megatron and Starscream, who launch a master plan that almost destroys everyone. This leads to the recreation of Grimock, Jazz, and Bumblebee, who end up stumbling upon their god, Primus, in the center of Cybertron, setting in motion a chain of events that make nothing ever the same again for the Transformers. These stories are timeless. Simon Furman might be a god himself, the way he writes with power and emotion and portrays the Transformers as a real war epic. The shows were not always that way. And he knows his characters. Each character, no matter how obscure, is cool and unique. At the same time, Geoff Senior's art work is amazing, making each character and location come to life on the page, as well as illustrating tough, gritty battle scenes. This book intrigued me enough to pre-order the next releases. I am a true Transfan, but you don't have to be to love this book. It is a pretty good introduction to newcomers. 'Til all are one!

By N. Kok - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Transformers: Primal Scream is a great read by Simon Furman, Jose Delbo, and Geoff Senior! This Titan book reprints Marvel Transformers comics #56-62 in one volume paperback! This Transformers book reprints Simon Furman's early American Transformers Marvel comics run starting with #56 to #62! This book has many neat surprises and plot twist. Simon Furman is a very good Transformers comic book writer and this book proves it very well! The Decepticon Micromasters are introduced! Megatron returns! Ratchet is taken hostage and is forced by Megatron to create a new Instrument of Distruction! The Classic Pretenders are introduced! Grimlock,Jazz, and Bumblebee comeback as new Transformers/Classic Pretenders! Starscream is ressurected as the new Decepticon Classic Pretender! PowerMaster Optimus Prime and the Autobots is ambushed by Scorponok his Decepticons. Megatron tells the story of how he survives accident on the space bridge. PowerMaster Optimus Prime becomes mad and gets out of control. Primal Scream tells the origin of the Transformers and the Matrix quest begins. I highly Recommended it! A+

HASH(0x8ef2e6e4) out of 5 stars Happily back in print 5 Aug. 2004
By Kevin Killian - Published on
Format: Paperback
The comic world suffered a long dry season, but now these seminal episodes of Transformers have been put out again. Genius work and a new beginning for a long-running and epochal series. You can see the dedication; the labor and the love rise right off the page like the smell of napalm in the morning.
