    Hadn't seen this posted yet. IDW has put up the covers for their four-issue movie adaptation series, which starts in June. See them here:

    I think these are gorgeous! Especially the fourth one. I'm a little iffy about the human art, but the bots and coloring look great in all of them, IMO.

    Very nice! It's going to be hard not to read these before the movie. I guess I'll just spoil myself and do it.

    I think it's a huge mistake to release these a month leading up to the film; any surprises the production may have been able to hang on to will be moot :(

    I think these are awesome covers. I'll definitely buy the comics as soon as they hit shelves, but there is no way I'm reading them before I see the movie. I don't want to spoil something this big in any way. I really like the prequel comics, so I expect these to be similarly good.

    REALLY curious as to why the Decepticlones are on one of the covers.

    Really nice art all around, though Milne doesn't seem to be able to figure out quite how to draw Frenzy.

    Debating on whether to pick up these comics or not, though even if I do I won't read them before I see the movie at Botcon.

    Decepticlones for the WIN; maybe they appear in the flashback sequence?

    And Frenzy's drawn perfectly IMO; he really is that crap.

    Art style is not really to my taste.

    Is it just me or did Alex draw Megatron and Prime directly based upon that leaked Megatron head redesign pic and the stock Optimus Prime picture they're using in most licenced material and merchandise?

    Very nice robot art, although the humans have an air of Pat Lee *shudder* about them...
    I also think the composition is a little eratic - Things look just a little 'random' to me. They are nice and colourful though.

    Prime looks like he's about to get down to some serious business on cover three.

    Cover 4, Jazz looks badarse and Ratchet looks like a Gargoyles (Hudson particularly).
