Comic Books: Scans of "Generation One" Chinese Comic Book

Many years ago while visiting New York City's Chinatown, I came across a mysterious issue of (what appeared to be) a Transformers comic book published for the Chinese market.  Featuring some...interesting artwork and seemingly using a narrative from three different G1 cartoon episodes, this is a curiosity I wanted to share with fans.  Check out the scans in my gallery here!

"Generation One" Chinese Comic Book (Issue #12)

One day many years ago I was running around New York City's Chinatown shopping. This was a normal activity for me back in the day but what was unusual was what I found one day in a book and stationary store on Mott Street: a Chinese Transformers comic book! Now, it is not unusual for companies around the world to publish their own Transformers stories and limit distribution to one geographic region. However, this was the first (and only) time I had seen a G1 based comic book from another country that was not just a reprint or riff of an existing comic book.
