    So I was perusing the comics over at TFArchive.com and I was looking at the sketch variants of the 86 movie adaptation when I noticed the picture above. I hadn't seen it at IDW or anywhere here that I could remember.

    I really like this cover. It's kinda what I was hoping for, incorporating the Matrix and Hotrod. You can even see some trace of Unicron in the background.

    Not sure when this is coming out, I'd say by the end of the month since we've had one about every month or so.

    I mean we can look at it compared to this:

    It's the 3 of 3 for the 1986 Marvel Adaptation. I now own all 3 of these books and I love them. The art is a little different, but still cool.

    I have to say something about the coloring though. It's so crude at times (when the background of a scene is mostly black) that it looks like the book was defaced by magic marker.

    Plus I love the credits:

    Is that the same Ralph Macchio as this:

    Awesome cover! The macchio joke was heavy used in the Robert Kirkman's marvel zombies introduction.

    you should see some of the art work Ralph has in his office. Some artist (forget the name ATM) has him in a karate gi with Thor's helmet, Cap's shield and something else... and a black eye.

    Yes, I know the guy.

    LOL!

    He really doesn't have any say over 616 anymore. His babies are anything with Ultimate in the titles... and sneaking free passes to new marvel movies ^_^

    If I put on a red wig and dress sexy, will you take me to the Spidey 3 premier this time? Hell, I'll settle for FF2.

    Either it'll turn up on the 24th (Escalation #3 is due, and Diamond don't have that in their expected list yet -- Diamond don't seem to bother to update it most of the time) or turn up at the start of March. The schedule's busier now that IDW have the Star Trek license.

    Hey, I never said I WOULDN'T. I'm sure he still can pass word that there's a mass calling for the rebirth of 616 Ben Riley.

    I'll see what I can do... the fucker owes me for acid washing his fucking patio and ruining a good pair of boots (my costume boots! DAMMIT!) and jeans...

    OR, perhaps a scanned copy of the original script for Ultimate Spider-man #100 would suffice?
