    What are you talking about!!? That is one of the most awesome pictures ever!!! The art here looks WAY better than almost all of the IDW artwork, IDW usually has nice covers with poorly done art inside. Why it was because of the abysmal art in the last IDW GI JOE crossover book that I had to pass on a story I wanted to read.

    Cap over the big blue cheese any day. If you are going to go DC go for the BAT.

    its a stand-alone story but it is set within both continuities

    so they *should* be using EJ's designs. But then again it could just be a case of Marvel being Marvel :rolleyes2 

    :p 

    as far as the creative team, its all "Marvel"

    written by Stuart Moore with artwork by Top Cow's Tyler Kirkman [strange. i thought it was all marvel? :p ]


    anyways, ive never been impressed with crossovers. This one doesnt seem to be no different i guess. i mean. it has TFs and iron man but..yeah.. not enough for me to buy xD

    the whole project just seems a little "well the TF movie might be bigger than Spidey this year...so lets try to make some money off of that too! ZOMG! crossover time!" to me

    [not to mention ZOMG captain america is still, conveniently, alive in this :p  yeah....not feelin this project at all :p ]

    Like Cap is any less cheesy.

    I'm all for Batman, but he should be posed in a neato picture with Mirage or Nightbeat (EDIT: heh, or Turbomaster Boss), not Prime. :thumb

    Why are people even arguing over whether Cap is dead or where Optimus is in continuity? Its comics, and its own offshoot series. Anything goes when you're making it up. And being the world of comics, if they wanted to Cap could come back to life tomorrow in some Civil War followup in which aliens steal his body :p

    The cover looks pretty sweet... here's what I can find on the crossover.

    It takes place between the first two story arcs (Breakout and Sentry) of New Avengers in the Marvel Universe and after Escalation in IDW's Transformers Universe.

    New Avengers line-up:
    Captain America, Iron Man, Luke Cage and Spider-Man (Ms. Marvel and Falcon for air support)

    Autobots:
    Bumblebee, Ratchet, Prowl, Jazz, Wheeljack and Optimus Prime

    Decepticons:
    Starscream, Megatron, others not named yet

    The mini-series is being written by Stuart Moore with artwork by Top Cow's Tyler Kirkman.

    In this continuity, with the Transformers and the Marvel Universe having co-existed on the same Earth for a long time, it takes a situation of great magnitude for them to be drawn together. The catalyst is that the nations of Symkaria and Latveria go head-to-head in an all-out war. In an attempt to defuse the situation, S.H.I.E.L.D. calls on Captain America and his teammates to investigate a mysterious object that appears to be in the middle of the Symkaria/Latveria struggle. And that's where the Transformers come in.

    Is there any better source of reference? Jimmy's stuff is looking pretty good here. I was just skimming through some old Scion trades earlier today. Good stuff.

    Technically it's not really a cross over, since back in the 80's Transformers was made by Marvel. So that sort of means, Spiderman, and the Hulk could be running around in the TF movie and it wouldn't be that weird. Haha. Ok maybe a little weird.

    I want to like this, I do. And I'll probably buy it, 'cause I'm a fool like that. But I seriously doubt it's gonna be a great comic. Fun read for a fan of TFs and Cap? Sure. But not a great comic in and of itself.
