    It ignores it...sort of. Its a direct continuation of the original Marvel series...but moving things on 20 years for no good reason. If you're doing a retro book, you might as well pick it up from exactly where you left off, you'll be preaching to the converted with this thing anyway. Personally, if I were embarking on this, I'd have gone back to #80, what with #81 being a bit of a rushed conclusion. It's not something I personally felt was a necessary project to embark on.

    As Generation 2 is one of the best Transformers comics out there, it's a shame that revisionism on the part of the publisher and author will make this an irrelevance now. Furman has reportedly said that he doesn't particularly care for Generation 2 and is actually embarrassed by it as being "too nineties", a pity given the high regard that comic is generally held in.

    Superhero? No, you were right all along. Name's Death's Head. I kill people for a living!

    Generation 2 will become what G.I. Joe: Disavowed has become after G.I. Joe continued with 156. It still exists, but has been put into an alternate timeline / dimension / whatever.

    Mind you Generation 2 had the Marvel GI Joe in it so maybe that's why in some ways as well it is now ignored. Other than that the colouring was terrible at times.

    I saw a video review of it and realised how 90's and Judge Dredd it all was. Even the writing was TO THE MAXX!

    Dredd wasn't fully bad and this is coming from a long time Dredd fan.

    Yeah, but it fitted in with the comic. The G2 comic was all spit, gritted teeth and robots covered in ammo belts.

    ...well they were at war...! plus, that was a dliberate choice on behalf of artist Derek Yaniger whom drew his inspiration from 2000AD's ABC Warriors (specifically Simon Bisley's run on 'The Black Hole'). I don't like the revisonism G2 is coming in for now, just because Simon Furman is embarrassed by one of the best TF comics he ever wrote. And I'll take Sara Mossof's inside-the-lines-using-the-correct-colours colouring over Nel Yomtov's crayola scrawls anyday. That the colouring doesn't look as amazing by today's standards is a symptom of where US comic colouring technology was at the time - it took them longer to catch up to painted / computer colouring than it did us Europeans. I'd also argue that the colouring used by Mossoff looks far better on the original newssprint stock than when reproduced on the glossier paper used for Titan's trades.

    I hold G2 in quite high regard and still do.

    The new Regeneration 1 series doesn't invalidate it as such it still exists and I still enjoy it. To be honest the colouring still holds up pretty well, far too much colouring these days is photoshop porn. Ooh look what I can do, rather than service the story which should be it's prime consideration.

    It wasn't colouring was poor compared to today's standards it was a case of Prime at one point was purple so was Hawk and other GI Joe characters so seriously the G2 colouring was horrendous!
