The Finnish Transformers comic book was published between 1987 and 1991 by
Kustannus Oy Semic. The series was comprised almost entirely of American stories
(issues 13-16, 19-75, Transformers the Movie 1-3, G.I. Joe and the Transformers
1-4, Headmasters 1-4) with the addition of two UK stories.
In addition to the Transformers comics, the G.I. Joe prologue to Generation 2 (issues 139-142) was published in the Finnish edition of the Action Force comic book. On the readers' page it was said that Transformers would return to Finland, but the G2 comics were never actually published.
My feelings towards Semic are... ambivalent. On one hand the editorial staff
seemed to put effort in their work and they did a good job translating. We didn't
get things like "Bedragare" (the Swedish word for Decepticons) for
example ;). But on the other hand they started the series from issue 26, skipped
issues without explanation, didn't finish the series, etc.
