A spaceship launched from the planet Cybertron crashlands on Earth, four million years in the past.
In 1984, its inhabitants are awakened - and Earth is plunged into the middle of the greatest conflict it has ever known, with teenager Buster Witwicky and his mechanic father caught in the middle, as Autobots and Deceptions alike battle for fuel and technology!
Now it is up to Optimus Prime and his few remaining allies to protect both themselves and their human friends from the threat of Megatron...but surprises galore lie in store for both robotic leaders!

Review by nesum
This volume contains the first six issues of the wonderful Transformer run with Marvel comics. Unfortunately for the comic as a whole, the series starts very weakly. The first four issues (and there were not supposed to be more until sales went through the roof) are rather childish and mundane. The characters and premise are great, of course, but it lacks something.When Bob Budiansky takes over the writing in issue 5, the comic takes off. These last two issues in the volume could not be better. The story is engrossing, the characters must more real, and the conflict intense. It is in issue 5 that the comic really begins to become a classic. The general mediocrity of the first four issues forces me to rate the book as average, but it is well worth the read for the next two issues and as an introduction into the series.
