Question "The Enemy Within" - any pages missing?

I've raised that question before in another thread, but nobody seemd to notice... So, once again:
The scans of UK issue 14 (part 2 of "The Enemy Within") I found on the web include only 9 pages. At a time when your regular UK story consisted of 11 pages (issues 16-21 only have 5-6 pages, but that's because they were split in half). Also, between pages 8 and 9, there seems to be a definite gap in the story. Page 8 ends with the pilot of a plane seeing Starscream (in jet fighter mode) attacking and shouting "Nooo!", on page 9 we suddenly have both Megatron and his Decepticons approach Starscream (in robot mode) and Optimus Prime and his Autobots approach Brawn. So my conclusion is that pages 9 and 10 are missing.
Does anyone have a complete version of that story who can provide me with the scans of that pages? I don't even care if it's just a reprint (from UK issue 308 or 309 for example), I just want to have that story complete, thanks in advance.

I think I remember asking this same thing when I was reading 'The Enemy Within' cuz it didn't seem to fit together well, but the answer I got was that all the pages were there, the other pages were just advertisements etc.

The reason no-one answered is propably because nobody knew.
Funny thing is that Denyer scanned those reprints in issues 308-309, and 314-317 (which are in full colour by the way) but he missed UK #313 which would have revealed if were missing pages from issue 14.
So wed need someone who has issue
#14
or
#313 (colour re-print of latter part of #14)
or
Collected Comics #4 (colour re-print of the whole EWI)

Thumbs up

Thank you! I hope you can take this the right way... Those scans are so much better than your US scans that I almost couldnt believe they were scanned by the same person. Clear, good colours, and considerably smaller files.
Now theres the problem that my old scans look very poor when compared to those two pages. So, please do share your scans.

Yeah, I also have the full colour 'Collected Comics' edition of 'The Enemy Within', so if ever you can't get ahold of TF Archive for the scans, you're welcome to send me a pm or an e-mail my way and I can send them to you.

There have been many wonderful and helpful people here lately. So... Im pushing my luck and asking if there was a person whod have the first page from #201
http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/campus/...01/page01.html
in correct colours? Collected comics 18, I think.

Even better if someone knows a way to "fix" these miscolourings.

Thanks to Denyer and Windchanger, Ive got now the complete full coloured Enemy Within (~7.1 Mb). Someone willing to make it online? Of course if they dont mind...

Hey, why not put all UK run on TF Archive?
Is that possible?

So, Osku and me managed to
a) "repair" the "Straxus hole" on pages 7 and 8 of UK issue 99 by using scans of the German reprint of the stories and performing the good old "cut and paste" job. You can find them here:

UK issue 99 page 7 (fixed)
UK issue 99 page 8 (fixed)

and
b) Fix the colouring mistakes on pages 4 and 5 of UK issue 101, once again by using scans of the German reprint.

UK issue 101 page 4 (fixed)
UK issue 101 page 5 (fixed)

Enjoy.

Now all we need is someone who has a version of page 1 of UK issue 201 (Part 3 of "Time Wars") which has the correct colours.
Should be found in Collected Comics 18, if anyone has it.

This thread should be stickified and renamed "The search for missing UK comic pages - results inside".
