    Yeah, the early issues suffer quite badly from being scaled up to A4 size. The little dots of colour become more obvious, and really show up how poor Yomtov was as a colourist. That said though, the UK issues were mostly black and white, which actually makes the art seem a little less rubbish in the first few issues.

    Yeah that second one is from the cover of the upcoming UK Classics Vol 3. I was quite dumbfounded by it when I first saw it, it just invites a very unfavourable comparison IMO. Not even bothering with Ultra Magnus's trailer?! Maybe those cover arts are rush jobs or something, but even so...

    Quite clearly, his heart just wasn't in it. "Galvatron riding Magnus... got it. Ho hum." It's kind of sad that someone who clearly KNOWS how to draw, would show such an utter indifference to composition and energy in the work. :thumbdown

    That's a point; maybe he didn't even know about or have reference to the original, and just drew it based on a note like "Galvatron atop UM's truck cab". Guess we fans take the iconic original for granted (particularly in the UK).

    Still, that shouldn't be an excuse, since Senior probably worked from much the same note back in the day!
