Almost back from my Tumblr vacation, and I’ll have lots of neat things for everyone, but I needed to break my hiatus to talk about this upcoming cover.
First: OH MY GOSH FINALLY, WE’RE GOING TO GET SOME MORE JETFIRE!!
Secondly and thirdly: LOOK AT THAT LITTLE DRONE HE’S BRINGING WITH HIM to stave off the loneliness, he hauls around fake people. BUT LOOK AT THAT DRONE. THOSE ARE EYEBROWS AND GLASSES. It was like Jetfire had to pick facial features to make something harmless, and he was like: “N’aw, not everyone has mouths, those are hard to relate to. But my small drone friend will need to have glasses, to show that it is smart, and works with science. Also eyebrows. Only the harmless have eyebrows.” And then Jetfire decided that his drone and he needed to be colour coordinated. So they got matching outfits.
Full preview for Dark Cybertron #10/MtMtE #27 posted on Newsarama
Here’s the WIPs I sent to markerguru001 as I was working on this. Note: Several metal hero references in the NAILS around of Blurr (B-Fighter Kabuto/Kawaga/Tentou) and by Skybyte (Shaider, Sharivan, Captain Power, SolBraver)
BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH back to work! HAPPY TO SHARE THIS FINALLY!
LOOK AT SOUNDWAVE BEING SNARKY AND PROUD AND SO SO LOYAL
LOOK AT MIRAGE PUTTING HIS HAND ON SUNSTREAKER (they really DID put things behind them. Wow, Mirage, you are a straight-up CHAMP!)
IRONHIDE AND CHROMIA ARE STANDING TOGETHER. THEY MIGHT TALK! IT MIGHT BE AWESOME. (They’re totally going to spend the entire time flexing at each other)
THE LADIES ARE ALL GETTING TOGETHER YES YAY
Rumble and Frenzy are okay! (?)
RATCHET YOU ARE PERFECT AS ALWAYS
Whirl is off doing his own thing celebrating how awesome he is by himself with the rest of the hero-guys watch on, a little concerned
Skids got his arms back
Atomozer has his bow!
SKYLYNX AND COSMOS ARE IN THE SAME SHOT AND THEY ARE BOTH HUGE, YAY
METROPLEX IS KNEELING DOWN TRYING TO HAVE A LOOK AT PEOPLE (???) … Or he used up all of his back-up thumbdrive immune system, got tired, and fell asleep??
LADIES GOT TOGETHER AND THEN THE DINOBOTS GROUPED UP AROUND THEM BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHERE ITS AT (and I bet Slug had something to do with that)
WINDBLADE IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN THE OTHER LADIES I really like this!
Rung seems to be having a good time. Good for you, old man.
SUNSTREAKER AND SIDEWAYS ARE MAN-HUGGING OR SOMETHING. YES, SUNSTREAKER MIGHT ACTUALLY BE GETTING A SOCIAL LIFE
ASTROTRAIN AND BLITZWING ARE OKAY (we knew they would be). I hope Astrotrain gets to meet up with Skywarp, since he was worried about him earlier
RATCHET AND DECEPTICON Dr. McSmallhands MIGHT WORK TOGETHER. I hope they bicker. (I also forgot his name)
PROWL IS WATCHING ARCEE MEET NEW PEOPLE. I hope he is proud of Arcee as opposed to thinking: “hmm, all my “friends” move on and leave me behind, should have seen that coming :’).”
BOB IS OKAY AND WITH SUNSTREAKER!
I STILL REALLY LIKE BUMBLEBEE; he is still awesome
WHO IS COSMOS WAVING TO? HE IS WAVING TO SOMEONE WHO ISN’T WAVING BACK AT HIM. POOR COSMOS. SOMEDAY YOU WILL HAVE A FRIEND. Maybe. Hey man, if Sunstreaker can get Mirage after all this time, there’s hope for you too.
Is FirstAid carrying another dude?
Blurr and his buddies who didn’t give a damn past having a place to drink, are all okay!
