    THE TRANSFORMERS: SPOTLIGHT: ULTRA MAGNUS (5 of 5)

    Publisher:
    IDW Publishing
    Writers: Simon Furman
    Pencils: Robby Musso
    Covers: Robby Musso, Klaus Scherwinski
    Colorist: Kiernan Oats

    Part 5 of 5
    Continuing a series of one-shots focusing on some of the best-loved (or loathed) characters from the TRANSFORMERS Universe. This month, the spotlight falls on ULTRA MAGNUS, the AUTOBOTS' implacable, upstanding long arm of the (intergalactic) law. But now- in pursuit of his "most wanted" (and elusive) adversary- just how far (outside the law) is MAGNUS willing to go? By Simon Furman (The Transformers: Stormbringer) and Robby Musso. Escalation cover artist Klaus Scherwinski provides a variant cover, too.

    Darn... I was hoping it was going to be a whole comic about him not dealing with stuff.

    who's Scherwinski, and why is he drawing transformers cover. I mean, to me, that as of a cover pales in comparison to some of the fan-arts here on this site.

    This looks FRIGGING awesome. *happy*

    I really, really love it when the spacefaring and society (law enforcement) aspects of TFs get given some focus. And hell-frigging-yes to Swindle's arms dealing getting some forefront, too. :D
