    Nice new writeup at the IDW site for the upcoming Kup Spotlight, and a little from Nick Roche.

    I wouldn't think there'd be much room for artwork, with all the giant text balloons, where Kup tells his old war stories to any one and every one near by.

    The impression I get is that some of the story is occuring in Kup's head, and the teeth are part of those events.

    PLEASE stop spamming. Put that cheap plug as your signature. I'm being nice, but I must tell you that if I see you doing it again, I will give you a warning point.

    Wow, that art really..erm...well, it sure isn't as good as the first art we saw. Is this a variant or is this the final cover art?

    I think Ive been spoiled by Dreamwaves stye of TF art. All clean and sharp looking. This loooks like the old 80's Marvel comics except with digital coloring. The pncils seem too messy.

    I am not a fan but I may buy it to read the story. I'm a sucker for TF backstroies and history. *nerd*

    This is what Nick said about the artstyle in this issue:
    "Instead of space-opera and subterfuge, you've got a veteran warrior making his last stand alone against a horde of creatures plucked straight out of a nightmare, with writing and art to match.

    I usually go for a clean look to my lines, and like the light-hearted side of life, but this book, though— this is one murky motherboard!


    I'm hoping that fans of the twisted side of the TF Universe will dig it, and that maybe a few non-Transformers fans might get a kick out of it, too. Either way, I'm loving the chance to be (I think) the first Western creator to write AND draw an official Transformers comic. Hell, being a Transformers writer whose name doesn't rhyme with Fimon Surman is pretty unique, so I'm doing my utmost to make a mark.
