    Chris Ryall has given a sneaky peeky via his Tumblr of the first (unlettered?) page of issue #1 of the upcoming Transformers: Optimus Prime (the renamed and renumbered ex-RID), with art by Kei Zama and colours by Josh Burcham, and it looks amazing.

    Nice art ~ I wonder if that is supposed to be a riff on Energon Landmine?

    I dropped off IDW's Transformers after Devestation (I know it got a lot better) and have been meaning to catch up ever since, but there are just too many good comics about to find the time, however I may well pick this up just for the art. I love the old school Marvel feel of it.

    Looks awesome!

    Looking forward to reading it. I absolutely adore Kei's artwork, and Josh's coloring is always a pleasure to see.

    is that......Liftor the Minicon?

    also, Holy Shitballs Kei Zama's artwork is amazing. here's hoping IDW uses this person from now on instead of Livio Ramondelli.

    Utterly gorgeous.

    Zama's going to be the regular artist on OP and Ramondelli is employed as a fill-in artist, so that'd be difficult.

    This looks really good! Anyone else think the character looks a whole lot like Armada Smokescreen?

    Forkliftformers represent. I mean... for the whole 4 panels he was alive, anyway.

    Art looks great. Kei Zama\'s style is perfectly complimented by Burcham\'s colors (but then I still wish he was on MTMTE, too so I might be biased).

    Feels like Barber has been a little meh lately so lets hope he\'s been reinvigorated now that his baby (Revolution) has been born.

    That he does! Man, this is some good art. Kei Zama's going to be a welcome addition to the fold. :) 

    Hope her humans look good.

    It's safe to say both the Transformers and human characters are in safe hands, she's amazing at both. She recently did an issue of Scarlet Witch, and if you check out her Tumblr, Steel and Starlight, you can see a bunch of her sketches including both robits and humans.
