I am currently auctioning off five (5) Transformers comics from the first Marvel limited series. The issues being auctioned off in a lot are numbers 1,2,3, and two number 4's.
The starting price is $4.95.
All are in great condition and will be shipped with backing boards and bags.
There is some damage to the spine of issue number 2 but the rest of the issue is fine. There are no folds, bends or rips on any of the pages.
This mini-series introduces the origins of the Autobot and Decepticon war as it leads to Earth. The Autobots are lead by Optimus Prime and Megatron leads the evil Decepticons.
If you've been a Transformer fan for ages or if you're just now getting on due to the recent movie releases (Transformers the Movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.),. this can be an excellent insert into your collection.
The auction is being held at eBay is is running through
And since the kids already have seen my Green Lantern cosplay costume, it went unappreciated.
Probably the reason everyone stayed away from the party.
So I had to bring the swag and give it out to yous guys. I'm not going to just do reviews and tell you to leave a comment and you get a prize sent to you, I'm going to shake it up and make you work for it.
Reason for Purchase: I was a big X-Men fan and at this time, I was picking up anything X-Men related. The fact that Beast had his own limited mini series was a plus.
Read when Purchased: I don't think so.
Found in Box: The Box consisting of mostly limited mini-series.
Plot: Former New Mutant, Karma, enlists Beast and Cannonball to help her rescue her twin siblings from Spiral and Viper. It's all a plan by Viper to get revenge on Karma because of how her brother screwed over a deal that went bad years ago. Spiral is just along to be a means to the end.
Review: I feel like the title of this series should have been named "Karma". It was her problem that needed solving, it was her back story that was dealt with, and she's the one who dealt with the most through out the three issues. McCoy was just along to throw punches.
In my opinion, if a character gets their own mini series, it should in some way show some character growth. Or touch a bit in the back story somewhat to make it relevant in the current continuity. While they touched on Hank McCoy's obsession with a cure for his mutant gene, it was only briefly on only half a page.
The cover art by Roger Cruz was great, but I didn't really care for the story.
Recommendation: If you're a Karma fan, sure look for it. But if you're looking for Beast action? Not so much.
