    Wasn't this already up for auction a few weeks back? Or was that 72 and 73?

    Couldn't figure why some of them looked like Unicron, until I saw the caption at the bottom. Cool piece of art though. Some of these look a lot better black and white than they do colored.

    Oh, I love this issue. This is the one with the cult Unicron Worshipers (hence all the bots dressed up like Unicron). This was the issue before the epic, but poorly drawn, issue 75. I still don't understand why Wildman didn't pencil that issue. It would've been awesome to see his rendition of the Unicron battle.

    Agreed. While I wish Mr. Wildman well on his auction, I'd loved to have seen Mr. Senior illustrate the whole series. I always felt that Mr. Wildman's TFs looked too human . . . .

    I liked both artists, who have different strengths. Senior always made things look epic with fantastic poses and direction, but Wildman had the edge with a grittier and more expressive style that gave the comic a sense of depth.

    If I have anything against Wildman's artwork, it was that all his bots were the same build, so the scale was lost. Galvatron should have been notably smaller than Maximus for example. Small quibble though, you get a comic drawn by either and it's a win.
