I have been hearing good things about the new Transformers relaunch. It is nice to see companies picking up licenses and actually making good comics for once (GI Joe, Galactica, Lone Ranger).
Anyway, I was wondering if there are in Transformers readers out there and if it is any good. Also, where to start reading at?

It's pretty good, though the build-up's a bit slow. It's a total reimagining of the Transformers story from scratch.
Transformers: Infiltration is the first mini. Slow build-up, as I said, with more mystery and investigation than action. Still, the final confrontation between Megatron and an empowered Starscream is fun.
Transformers: Stormbringer is next. Set entirely n Cybertron, it's much far more action-packed, as both autobots and decepticons fight against an unstoppable rogue transformer.
Transformers: Escalation is the third and current mini. More action than Infiltration, though not as much as Stormbringer.
Also, the various Transformers: Spotlight one-shots have been giving background info.
I like it, myself.

Yeah, its basically an Ultimate approach to the Transformers universe.
And it is a bit slow going, but that's not a bad thing. Simon Furman is adding lots and lots of depth to the universe and not rushing the stories.
