    It's not Milne or Roche, but it looks DAMN good. I'm glad for this.

    Holy crap! That artwork does look amazing! Not in a stylized way, but crisp, clean, and full of life. It's almost as if he envisioned the art animated and translated it to a static medium.

    Neat that he got the job in part because of his DC/Transformers crossover pitch that didn't go anywhere. His promo art for that concept was pretty cool.

    Jimenez may be a clone of George PĂ©rez, but there are far worse artists whose style to follow. :p

    Wow!

    A few years back, I was in a discussion at the comic shop with the local "Expert" (a guy who was a perfect copy of the Simpsons character) who said "robot artists are lazy compared to 'real' artists."

    Well, time for him to suck it!

    Okay fine quality art will not be an issue needing attention in this run I see.

    By and large the line work is great, a solid foundation for the colouring and use of shade that I feel deserve a mention. I'm looking forward to this too with the attendant Generations figures and (toy) speculation! ;) 

    Would I be right in suggesting that one of the minor spoilers has to do with the link between a member of Orion Pax's crew and events in the last MTMTE installment? Other spoilers may have escaped me; I have some serious catching up to do with RiD.

    You guys do realise that the actual line art is Andrew Griffith, right?

    Also, Shockwave and Dreadwing are apparently in the Batcave...

    Yeah it says so in the interview I'm just weirded out just how much he changed from his usual RID issues. Look like both him and Perez are bringing in their A++ game there. If the writing is as good as this art and if the quality of the art remain consistent over different artist we might be looking at not only the bet IDW event but the best even in Transformers comic history.

    Wait...that's AG's line art!?!?

    It looks SO much better than the sort of bumpy oddly proportioned bots from RiD who look like they would experience pain just by walking around.

    Hell, why not bring up the stuff that "real" artists have drawn where they really don't have a handle on the robots?

    Like Heart of Darkness.

    Seriously, that Jimenez can draw robots this well is pretty fantastic; there's a lot of robot artists who can't do humans well and vice versa.

    Looks good! And it's not that Ramondelli junk, so I can actually get into it still.

    Shockwave looks awesome. I also think it is really cool that Jimenez has done all the rough outs.

    Jimenez does very good work. I remember seeing him on a marvel panel at SDCC several years back and I was amazed at how young he seemed. Very talented guy.
