After Dreamwave Productions' Transformers comics became a success in
North America in 2002, the Swedish publisher Full
Stop Media and Norwegian publisher Bladkompaniet decided to make a joint attempt to publish Transformers in Sweden and
Norway again. The Finnish division of Egmont also joined the cooperation soon afterwards.
The Swedish comics had 48 pages per issue, and a poster in the first 3 issues. Each issue consisted of
two American books - in the six first issue the mini-series Transformers Generation 1 was
published together with the ongoing Transformers Armada series, and after the former had
concluded it was succeeded in issue 7/2003 by the mini-seriesThe War Within.
Unfortunately the comic book didn't succeed in attracting a sufficient number of readers, and in
October Full Stop Media decided to terminate the series immediately after issue 9/2003. Their Norwegian
partner Bladkompaniet had already cancelled the Norwegian edition with issue 8/2003, and as a direct
result of their neighbours' decision Egmont Kustannus discontinued the Finnish edition already the same
The decision to cancel the book was so quick that there was no possibility to announce the cancellation
in the last issue; instead there was a statement that the next issue would go on sale on December 9 -
an issue that now never went to print.
