Coming Soon, Transformers: Best of the Rarities

Coming from IDW in August is a must-read for Transformers fans, Transformers: Best of the Rarities, curated by James Roberts (Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye).

Best of the Rarities includes some of the greatest hard-to-find Transformers stories from the series’ almost 40-year and over 1,500-issue history. The collection includes never-before-reprinted material from the US and the UK.

Look forward to discovering a “totally amazing line-up of rare, little (or never) -seen TF stories and one-offs,” Transformers writer Simon Furman tells us, “including the ‘who-knew-they-even-existed’ Sunday Times strips by me and Robin Smith from the late 1980s. This is a real must have.”

“We’ve crammed so much into these 100 pages,” James Roberts commented on Twitter.

Although AmazonUK is only currently listing the digital edition, there will be hard cover releases just like its predecessors, Best of Megatron, Prime and Hot Rod.

Transformers: Best of the Rarities will be available from all good comic shops from 3rd August 2022 | Diamond Order Code MAY221563 | Order it from AmazonUK (Affiliate Link)
