    heh, it is a bit "Sam Keith-esque" just without the REALLY thick outlines. the colourings amazing too.

    I really dig this cover too. I'm so happy that IDW isn't just doing the animeish illustration style (or any one single illustration style).

    "Variety is the spice of life," quoth my wife. :)

    meh, that looks not very good...definately easy to pass on....and since not everyone reads the previews of stuff, it really shouldnt be put on the front page as it is, because it contains spoilers

    and arent sketch covers usually not colored in, hence the sketch part?

    Comic previews are posted everywhere. I'm not going to add spoiler warnings or censor a normal comic preview.

    Transformers fight, humans get in danger. Sure sounds like every single Transformers related story ever.

    I like the cover, but is Nightbeat to IDW as Grimlock is to Simon Furman? He's sure getting alot of facetime for a farely low priority character.

    I like it, but I'll probably stick with E.J. Su's covers if they connect in Escalation like they did in Infiltration.

    Bummer!

    I assumed they did ... Sunstreaker's cover for issue #1 seems to connect to Prime's cover for Infiltration #6.
