Unfortunately, G2 TF comics were destined to make an only 12 issue run. Here you'll find plot summaries for the final 6 issues. Many of us die-hard fans felt this was probably the last hurrah for the Transformers. When this ended, so too we figured was our hope for a major comeback. We would have to wait a few more years, but thank goodness, we were wrong again!

Well, many of us thought this was the final TF tale we would ever see. Toy sales were miserable and this was already the second chance we all wanted. What were the odds of a third chance?
