Additional information

  • Amazon titles are solicited about six months in advance, and information may not be corrected at their end if shipping schedules change. Books sometimes go on sale at speciality comics stores ahead of the dates Amazon will ship from their warehouses. Treat their provided dates as rough guides.
     
  • The "manga" volumes are an inexpensive smaller format. Initially advertised to be reproduced from original black and white artwork, but Infiltration and Stormbringer have been confirmed to be grayscale.
     
  • "G1 Vol. 3's not happening at all--rights issues." (email from Chris Ryall, 2006-10-18)
    Despite a listing having made its way onto Amazon, there's no sign of this actually coming out.
     
  • Transformers Animated: Arrival #6 was cancelled so that issue could be released as an exclusive toy pack-in. It looks unlikely the issue will receive a regular release. The short story material that it would have contained will be reprinted in the Arrival trade paperback.
     
  • Looking for estimated sales data? You can now find that on its own dedicated page.
