Man, I hope I'm the first to report this
But...isn't Captain America dead? Still a cool image.
It's most likely set before Civil War.
Indeed. However, I dread to think what the actual comic will be like (especially in terms of story).
Now thats fucking cool!
I think I'm going to have to pass.
I've never been too impressed with TF crossovers.
It IS set pre-Civil War.
And pre-Escalation as well, I believe.
Ah yeah, totally precum worthy.
Great find! Frontpaged.
Also, via IDW's boards:
There's a TF who hasn't appeared in IDW's ongoing in it.
And I believe that he dies.
Is it just me, or its is painfully obvious that the artist used 20th Prime for a reference?
probably entirely new universe...
Yes, it is. Everything from the notched faceplate, to the hinge at the bottom of the ab grill, to the design of the cab marker lights.
No. It's IDW's mainline universe, according to Ryall.
So that's with all likelyhood EJ Su's Optimus Prime design.
That's some nice art. Looking forward to this one.
So I wonder if it's just a cover thing, or if OP will look like that in the comic (contradicting his look in the rest of the IDW-verse). I wouldn't mind though. I loved that DW used 20th Prime as a model.
Except it's not. It should be, but it isn't. That's very definitely the 20th anniversary Optimus Prime. Su's version is a more modern take on the truck, bigger windows etc.
That is obviously not EJ Su's design. It's the MP-01 or 20th Anniversary Prime, to be sure. Is it possible to provide a link to where Ryall states this will be in IDW's main continuity? Crossovers of this type are rarely in main continuity.
The impression I got from previous articles about this is that the story will be set so it can fit into the continuities of both universes, but will have no effect on either.
Anyway, the cover looks decent. I just hope the writers will be primarily from IDW and not drawn from Marvel's pool of hacks.
I have high hopes for this series. But, so far I'm not impressed. If this is going to be the standard of art.......
Sweet bejeebers, that's an awesome pic!
Wish it was Superman instead of Cap, though....
