The book exhaustively covers the mythos both comic and tv around the Transformers and Beast Wars. The authors cover all the essentials with a great writing and presentation style. I found re-reading the summary of all the episodes I had watched years ago to be too much fun. What made it really cool is that the authors did not spare the criticism for the dumb parts. It would have been lame if they tried to take some of the early tv episodes too seriously (e.g. anything with Chip Chase), but they instead treated everything objectively and instead created a defining chronology of all things Transformers.
Having a single book that ties together comic & tv, Beast Wars & Transformers, pre-Movie & post-Movie, and UK comic & US comic, is really something more than I would have ever hoped for. I thank Mad Norwegian for making this book happen.
And Hasbro, if you are reading this, thanks to this book, I went out and bought a bunch of Beast Wars stuff that I never would have been interested in.
PRIME TARGETS (a good book to have) has summaries of EVERY episode of TRANSFORMERS (including TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE), BEAST WARS and BEAST MACHINES...as well as summaries of every issue of Marvel US and Marvel UK's TRANSFORMERS comic-book series.
It's been YEARS since I've seen MOST episodes of the TRANSFORMERS cartoon. And, worse, I've NEVER had the chance to buy even one issue of the namesake Marvel UK comic.
But at least now, I get to read summaries of the US and UK TRANSFORMERS media.
