This blog is going to get way more busy. I have decided to embark upon a journey for the coming year. I am going to do reviews of the Transformers comic books that I own. And I’m starting right at the beginning with Issue #1 of the original Marvel Comics 4-Part Mini-Series run from 1984.
In the first issue we see the origin of the Transformers. They are from the planet Cybertron, crash-land on Earth, as in stasis for 4 million Earth years and then are woken up and revived due to a volcanic eruption on Mount St. Hilary in Oregon. The computer searches for intelligent life on the planet and it mistakenly sees cars and trucks as the dominant life form and so reconfigured the Transformers to be able to transform into those Earth vehicle modes.
