Shortpacked!@TNI: My annual swing at Fun Publications. Heyo!
Shortpacked!: It's true, I can't find the suckers anymore. I'm panicking.
As armies of Quintesson warriors march across Cybertron and a mad Predacon criminal begins his ascent into godhood, only the rag-tag group known as the WRECKERS can stop them! The thrilling end to the long-running saga, WRECKERS: FINALE PART 2 brings Autobots, Decepticons, Maximals and Predacons together in a battle for not just the fate of the Transformers' home world, but for the universe itself! Written by Greg Sepelak and S. Trent Troop ("The New World"), art by Guido Guidi (IDW, Dreamwave) and Drew Eiden (Fun Publications).

Dear Lord, it finally happened. We got an end to 3H's The Wreckers story, which was left unresolved when the Transformers convention license was yanked out from under 'em in 2004. Several questions were left unresolved, like... what the Hell is going on? Also, what the Hell is going on? And finally, why is Devcon suddenly such a douche? Oh, but I kid.

For the 95% of you who don't know what I'm talking about, way back in the Marvel UK comics, there was a team of hardcore Autobot commandos, assembled of various toys that fell through the cracks over the years. They died a lot. 3H's Wreckers takes place during/after the Beast Machines era, and its team is made up of the handful of Wreckers unaffected by Predacon Megatron's virus and a few other tag-alongs. They died a lot.

The series, as I said, was never completed. ...until now, by way of a text story by Greg Sepelak and Trent Troop, with illustrations by Guido Guidi. Also, you can read it only if you're a member of the Transformers Fan Club. So, er, yeah, those of you in the 95% percent I just addressed? You probably can't read this, so I wasted my time. But hey, I wanted to promote it anyway. It's a great story. If you're a member of the club, you should read it.

If you're not a member of the club, you can still read Wreckers parts 1 and 2 for free. Part 3 you'll have to pine for.
