Spotlight Grimlock - 4 Inked Preview Pages
From Marcelo Matere's Deviant Art page.
I hope this Spotlight is as good as it should be. I can't help but shake the feeling that Grimlock, being the Transformers equivilent to Wolverine, is gonna be just about fanservice. I'd like to see it serve some piece to the plot so it feels more like a piece of the grand IDW "tapestry", and less like "me Grimlock smash stuff for your approval!"
Edit: And curse Dreamwave for giving him that War Within fang-face look. I loved his old mug so much more. le sigh.
Other than the teeth on his face, looks pretty good.
Looks awesome! Me, Grimlock, approve!
Grim has, is, and will always be one of my favorite TF characters. That being said i really really hope this book will rule. More than likely even if it sucks I will probably defend it on these here forums, but weep to myself.
Interesting, it looks like Marcelo put some cybertronian writing on Grimlock's head, like the Movie characters.
It pry says "Me Grimlock badass"!!
Looks pretty good. Hopefully it's got a story to match.
Before the first preview, I was hoping that we'd see the original Shockwave/Dinobots battle that motivated the Shockwave spotlight. However, it seems that we may be moving toward an odd period of continuity (4 Spotlights, 12 issues with someone else at the helm, potentially a preconceived story placed into continuity), and I'm now pretty excited to see more elements of the current events.
What the.....arent those the same designs DW did for the WW Dynobots?!
Pretty much.... a lot of Don's Cybertronian designs were carried over into IDW fiction (with a number a tweaks here and there and a good deal of original designs).
This looks really cool...I can't wait to see the rest.
When the Wheelie spotlight was being discussed,someone brought up a good
point.They said,the lesser known or used characters should get the spotlights.
Grimlock,Optimus,ect are in the spotlight 24/7.
Man that pic at the bottom of page two? Scary!
*Grimlock eats babies!*
Still, I am curious. If the Dino,,,er DYNO-bots had to become Earth vehicles, what would they be?
Fantastic art. Is Marcello adapting his style in the panels referencing Devastation's events to better match Su's style?
Hehe... wasn't Don Figueroa the first one to use the fang-face look?
I'd be willing to let it slide since Grimlock hasn't appeared in IDW continuity for almost two years (aside from a small cameo in Megs Origin).
The Optimus Prime one is a pretty important keystone to the current storylines, so at least it served a good purpose.
Looks very good - can't wait to get it, but I am still think that teeth-on-sides look is not that good or appealing. But I am gonna read it anyways.
