    Worst published comic book art I've ever seen. How did this guy ever get green-lighted? Wonky proportions and bland faces. Ugh. I would die of shame if I had to do the colors for this line art.

    There's a wide range of talent and a few different styles at IDW. That kind of blanket statement just isn't true. If you like Transformers, there's definitely an illustrator that's to your taste.

    But more importantly.

    Dear IDW,
    It's recently become clear to me that you don't necessarily screen your line artists before assigning them to a project. I am an inconsistent artist, I can simplify faces to the point that they are just an emotionless collection of geometric shapes, AND I have little to no experience with mechanical illustration. Please give me a mini-series so that I may run it into the ground.

    Sincerely,
    Minsok

    OH!!! EM!!! GEE!!!

    That is quite possibly the worst cover in Transformers history. No I'm going to say it now that IS the worst cover to a transformers comic in Transformers history.

    Buh wuh...where is even the basic most simple grasp of anatomy there? I know they're alien robots but jeebus cripes on a bike thats bad.

    Lets start with Arcee, who has clearly been drawn in after Galva was finised-
    [​IMG]

    Ok Her thigh is longer than her entire body!
    Her ankle is thinner than her wrist.
    For an arm to wrap around Galvatrons leg like that she must have Bayverse Twin Arm syndrome and have a right arm about a quarter longer than the left.
    And as for her actual torso eith Galvatron has a really thin leg or Arcees body is hollow, fitting in the mass of galvas leg.

    And now onto this collection of parts which is supposed to be Galvatron
    [​IMG]

    Either hes jumped from a very high place and landed badly or hes been on the energon pies in a bad way.
    His crotch space is HUGE or hes pooped himself
    Speaking of which what the hell is going on with that crotch block!?!?!?
    His waist is probably twice as wide as it should be
    The length of his arms don't match and generally due to perspective the closer arm should be the longer one.
    His cannon is ajoke.
    His calfs are wider than his thighs which makes arcees closeness even more impossible
    He has bigger forearms than Popeye...only missing the anchors
    His shoulders are wider than the length of his body.
    That orange 6 square part is central then either his chest piece is asymetrical or he has soms SERIOUS upper torso twist injury
    His head is REALLY misshappen and has less nose than TF:p RIME Optimus
    What the hell is up with his hips??? its like he doesn't have any and his legs are just welded onto the sides of his body...its like he has a second set of shoulder...Maybe he was like Goro in Mortal Kombat but someone sliced off his legs just below his second arms.

    and last but not least did he steal Magnus' shoulder blocks?

    Seriously someone needs to buy this artist an anatomy book

    ...or some glasses

    ...or check if hes had a head injury

    Thank Primus!

    Until I jumped in here I thought I was the only one who thought that was terrible. And I'm not usually fussy, enjoying most of the different art styles we've seen over the years...

    Glad this series is coming to an end. While it was a great concept, the art and writing left MUCH to be desired.

    At least the ongoing is decent again!

    This series has been an unmitigated disaster - after the excellence of LSOTW, this is just embarrassingly bad.

    What the hell. IDW has artists way, way better than that. I know people that were turned down at IDW for not quite being at the required level yet, and they were much, much better than I see in this cover.

    Wow, this is probably the worst comic art I've ever seen. Perhaps it's an homage to Carnage in C-Minor?
