Gorgeous artwork.

I was never much of a GI Joe fan, so you'll have to excuse my asking who the heck is that fat guy in the Decepticon t-shirt?

Anyone feels this will mark Kups return? Been wondering when he was going to show back up and if they're heading back to the dead universe I'm betting he's going to return

Oi. This is gonna be rough in the trade.

If it's still divided between RID and MTMTE, I'll be getting odds with one tpb and evens with the other!

Maybe IDW will just split this into two "Dark Cybertron" trades? :-?
