    Chris Ryall has updated his blog with covers for issue 1 and 2 of the ongoing. The faces will be as cold and as sinister as they appeared in early previews like AHM 13, it seems. I like the more traditional Wildman cover, though.

    Still not a fan of those faces, but, that Rodimus design is ACE!

    Good stuff. I see 2 different Rodimus designs there. Both pretty cool. I like what Wildman's doing too.

    I really like Wildman's cover for #2... the others, not so much. I don't hate them, though. Maybe they'll grow on me and look better in person. I hope?

    Those covers are awesome.

    Still gonna wait for TPB, but it will easily be my most anticipated trade! Look forward to reading this!

    Ugh. I know it's only been like a half hour or so since my orginal post, but during that time I've been looking through a couple IDW trades (Max Dinos and Infiltration) and it hit me... I hate these new designs. HATE.

    :(

    I love the look of the artwork and it's great to see Don back doing some Transformers stuff again. However, unless this new series gets absolutely phenomenal reviews for the writing, I've long since given up on IDW's G1 TF stuff.

    I have to say, Wildman actually takes what is an awkward mix of LAM and G1 character designs, and somehow makes them look really cool. That Hotrod is bitching...I would buy a toy of that.

    More Wildman! Keep this guy on the book.
    The faces also don't look, as some have said, "skeletal" on Wildman's cover. They actually look really decent.
    ---------------
    [EDIT] Doh, I goofed. I thought the issue #2 cover was drawn by Wildman. Turns out he did the artsity BB one.

    This looks pretty darn great, but I'm not digging the new Gundam-y head design on Optimus.

    I'm just not digging those face designs. We got to see them close up in a recent AHM story, and they just look creepy and weird. The body designs are absolutely killer, and that Rodimus looks like it may be a cybertron mode.

    And has it been clarified yet if this will be a continuation from AHM, restarting from a known point in TF lore, or a reboot?

    It's a continuation 3 years after the events of All Hail Megatron.

    Actually, That first cover of issue # 2 is Don's cover. Wildman's cover is the one with Bumblebee.

    Pretty cool. Though I hate to say it... I would prefer that the designs were more GeeWunny...

    Love the Rodimus and team design. But is it just me or has the movie face look started to really influence artists overall look?

    *looks again* Ah, well damn. My bad. I missed that.

    I wonder why the issue #2 cover looks so much different(And better for that matter.) from Don's first ones?

    I believe Don did say that he was phasing at least those mouths out...

    p.s. when did they start calling Hot Rod Rodimus in this continuity?
