DREAMWAVE TRANSFORMERS COMIC ISSUE GUIDES

Armada Toy Comics

|Volume 1|Volume 2|Volume 3|Volume 4|

Not one of the most vital facets of the Armada series, as none of them fit with the main comic continuity. However, as the information was freely available to complete this, and the four comics are created by the Dreamwave Armada team, it seemed worth doing.
