I'm not a fan of the movie designs, but I can't help myself, I'll have to buy this... Senior's art can make anything look good.

I'm really excited about this news, Geoff senior's one of my favourite artist, I loved the work he did in the G2 comics, seems his style is still intact which is brilliant ^^

The man has still got it. Pity he has such crappy movie-designs to work with....


This is not his first TF comicwork since G2 though. He did several covers for Titan's reprints of old Marvel UK material, as well as a cover or two for the Panini UK Armada comic from a few years back.

Geoff mostly works in advertising these days, so appartently he has to find time for these things in-between his "normal" job :)

It's his first interior strip work, though, AFAIK.

BTW, the subscribe link on Titan's site doesn't seem to work yet -- they're looking into it. I think it might be that ExpressMag have some database problems right now. Currently shows '24' rather than Transformers.

Agreed. I like his style, but that preview pic leaves a lot to be desired.

Um, not-so-good news:
The problem should have been resolved. Clear your cache like I did and it
works!

Sadly, no, it will most definitely not be available in the USA. But I'm sure
ebay will help.

...but I'm sure people on boards will do their best to set up supply chains. I'd offer, but I'm doing reservations myself (will be out of the country for a few months soon-ish.)

NNNNNOOOOOOOOooooo! Was so hoping that this would be easy. Oh well, guess I'll just have to open up an account to start a comic fund. :-?

Nah, illustrated rather than sequentials. Good stuff though.

(Alignment is available online here if anyone's wondering what we're talking about. There's a neat Megatron / Decepticons shot on page 26, as an example to check out.)

Try e-mailing Steve at http://www.oneshallstand.com, he'll be able to sort something out for you guys.

I love Senior's work but unfortunately it's on the Bayformers shite so I won't be buying it.

Yeah, that's a thought -- it's not through Diamond, but I imagine he'll try to get it in anyway for domestic customers, so it's a good bet for international as well.

I'll drop him a line, see what info we can round up...

Glad to see Senior back. Man is a friggin' Legend in my eyes! His work on G1 TF was amazing. He created the look of Death's Head fer chrissakes! I still cherish the signed print of DH I got from the man himself at AA a couple of years ago.

I uses to hate his style. I like it more now. Not as good as Don Fig or Andrew Wildman, but good.

I can respect his career, but truth be told, I never liked his style in the TF continuity.

These pictures nurture that thought.

Awesome, can't wait to get this bad boy. He may bot be the most detailed artist out there, but the sense of action he thriws into each panel blows everybody else out of the water. :) Happy Yeti :)

No, that's his drawing style. This is comics by someone who started before most artists were relying on colourists and separate inking (and sometimes artists who just do backgrounds) to do their job for them.

If you ever acquire a taste for it, check out 2000AD or Keith Giffen when he's feeling sketchy.
