Story Pages


One thing I've always enjoyed was the random story pages inserted in with Transformers instruction or product catalogs. Maybe a blurb of fiction here or there, or as in this case, a mini comic. This little one page provides a cool little bit of adventure with the new toys in the catalog included with the toy. Little things like this can go a long way towards giving that toy a life of it's own and providing character. In cases like these late European G1-G2 toys it was some of the only fictional appearances some of these toys might have gotten until a random inclusion in a later convention comic or small role in a mainstream book if anything at all. It's not much, but it's something. Not to mention, that art is wonderful.
