My copy arrived this morning and is great stuff! Well maybe not the stories but it's a well put together package. The introduction tells newcomers all they need to know and the "Notes" that proceed each story work well, setting up what follows.
Some really good artwork too and I loved the back cover.

It's a marvellous read. What other fanzine begins by telling you that the stories it contains are terrible, and then prefaces each one with an introduction humorously pointing out how bad it is? (That's a rhetorical question. If there is another such fanzine I don't want to know - but as a one-off this is brilliant!)
I particularly recommend reading to provide relief during a boring episode of Torchwood.
However... I do believe I wrote stories just like these when I was very young. But to get paid for it...
Great package, Matt. And the illustrations are great too. (The stories make even my picture look half-decent by comparison.)
(Not normally a subscriber to the so-bad-it's-good concept, but this nails it)
It was nice to have the printed 'zine in hand . Didn't really have a chance to look at it during the con but I have had a peruse since. It does make for a great little print package (although I fear it may leak bonkers awesomeness all over the house, because surely no covers can contain such ludicrous madness). It is a good thing you have done, making this euro-bonkersness available to us all and giving us a glimpse into Transformers through a very different lens.
The hard work you and your fellow translator put in was very well worthwhile.
