    Fan favorite Transformers artist Alex Milne returns to Transformers comics today in the latest issue of GIJoe vs Transformers: The Art of War - issue #4. Although he only did a few pages in this issue, TFW2005 has learned that he will be the primary artist on the final issue of this crossover miniseries.

    Here's hoping IDW notices his work and picks him up for one of their upcoming books.

    EWWW, I don't like it. He is quite obviously a very talented artist and I love the coloring, but I hate the way the TF are bulging all over. reminds me of the awful DW Energon comic.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    his art is awful. amazingly it manages to be even more bloated than Pat Lee's work.

    Proportions are a bit much but to me its not as bad as Pat Lee.
    BTW which panels or pages did Milne do for Gijoe vs TF? And for that matter which ones did Joe Ng do, and James Raiz? It was hard to tell as I was reading through.

    And congrats Alex!(BTW guys where is that cover from?)

    raiz' art is easily recognized by the bolts and rivets he puts all over the TFs, and his habit of giving them reverse joint knees and stuff. just look for a transformer in a really unrealistic pose thats covered with dots, and that's raiz's work.

    the art there is a piece of fan art of Alex Milne's with colors by Josh Perez [known as Bumblebee around these parts]

    These are Alex's "gundam-ized" redesigns of the TFTM era decepticons

    you can find this piece, amongst others, on his DeviantArt site
    http://markerguru.deviantart.com/gallery/


    all in all, cool to hear that some of my fav. DW-era artists are all poolin together for this mini

    if i can say anything about this volume its at least the art is good

    Not just that but the story is GREAT as well! WAY better than the writing on Gijoe:America's Elite(the mainline ongoing title).

    i like how 'mech' his designs look ~ they are a bit over-bulked, but he pulls it off without the puffyness i came to despise in PLs stuff... his compositions are very strong too...

    Well, I honestly have no position at all in this bias, as I'm totally unfamiliar with this guy's work, but from that cover image and the links on his Deviantart, I'm pretty impressed.

    I REALLY like the way he drew Cyclonus.

    Seems decent but first impression (before a close look) was it seems to be cobbled together from sources other then TF:
    Galvatron == Vader
    Cyclonous == Maul
    Scourge == Deathsycth Hell Custom

    The art is good, but seems "off".

    i think these guys like joe ng and pat lee are great pinup artist, but their sequentials are technically poor (i recall alex's stint on energon). don is an exception.

    i hope they improve in this area. except pat. he can die.
