Marvel Transformers comics cross-reference

This page is a very rough cross-reference table of the stories printed in Marvel Comics' (G1/G2), Marvel UK's (G1) and Fleetway's (G2) Transformers comics. The table also shows which Nordic comics and which trade paperbacks by Titan Books reprint the stories.

Use the links immediately above the table to choose which columns to show and to hide. When UK comics are hidden the table is ordered by US issue numbers, and when UK comics are shown the table is ordered mainly by UK issue numbers.

Please note that the table is neither complete nor definitive. I don't have access to exact information on what was included in each of the UK annuals, nor when they were actually released. In some cases their positions in this list are based on other stories which they are dependent on (e.g. Vicious Circle follows immediately after UK # 120), in other cases I've just put them somewhere near the end of the year.

From UK # 130 and onwards each issue often contained two stories. This sometimes causes the order below to jump back and forth a bit, as I have tried to keep all parts of the stories together. Towards the end of the UK series some of the back-up stories were reprints from earlier UK issues - these have not been included in the table.

Abbreviations:
  • AF = Action Force
  • Ann = Transformers Annual
  • GJ = G.I. Joe
  • GJTF = G.I. Joe and The Transformers
  • G2 = Transformers: Generation # 2
  • HM = Headmasters
  • TFTM = Transformers: The Movie
