We had previously reported that Hero-X, the publisher behind Transformers: Generations collection of books will be publishing the classic Marvel Transformers comics in Japanese.
Hero-X is planning to release all issues of the classic series, and thanks to 2005 Boards member Gaokaiser for sharing the cover of the first volume which surfaced via Hero X Twitter. It’s an astonishing art featuring a battle between Autobots and Decepticons. The center features Optimus Prime and Megatron in an intense fight, where Optimus is grabbing Starscream by the neck and Megatron has just blown away one of Prime’s arms with a shot of his fusion cannon. The cover was drawn by artist Oshima Yuuki who shared the sketches of his amazing job via his twitter.
This volume will include the first 4 issues of the 1984 series will be released on February 23rd, 2018 for 2,560 yen (approx. $23) and will include original Japanese commentaries and a Marvel UK cover gallery.
