that Death's Head II would be making his return to the comics world as of 2014. As the February solicits for Marvel comics went up
with the first issue of the new series, artist Nick Roche has tweeted
a couple of his own work in progress for the big bad bot bounty hunter - in both his incarnations! Check out the solicit for Revolutionary War: Death's Head II
#1, the cover artwork by Mark Brooks and the art teasers by Roche below.

• Death’s Head! Death’s Head II! On an adventure together for the first time EVER!
• What threat could be grave enough to bring these two heroes together from across time? How about the villainous Mys-Tech organization resurfacing with an army?!

Nice, really looking forward to seeing how this develops.
Hopefully this means we are slightly closer to getting a toy of DHead sometime soon.

I know right! We've had GI Joe vs Transformers crossovers as SDCC exclusives. Why can't we get a couple Marvel vs Transformers exclusives? Death's Head, Circuit Breaker, ...those other characters nobody remembers. Maybe do something fun like repaint Metroplex as a Sentinel for the Transformers side of things.

A cover by Mark Brooks is always a good thing
Congratulations, Nick. I'm sure you'll have a great time drawing DH.
Now bring on that action figure, Hasbro!

Not a fan of Death's Head II, but always good to see (the real) Death's Head AND Nick Roche's work.

We've seen sketches, teases and pre-lettering previews
for the new Death's Head II one-shot part of Marvel's Revolutionary War. As of this week, the issue has been released, both in print and digitally - so head out to your local comic shop or to ComiXology
to get your copy of the Andy Lanning (Transformers: Heart of Darkness
) and Nick Roche (Last Stand of the Wreckers, Death of Optimus Prime
) take on the robot bounty hunter, and check out a preview below (also courtesy of ComiXology)!

I thought it was a pretty underwhelming issue. I guess it was silly of me to expect a one-shot story featuring everyone's favorite obscure character; turns out this issue is part of the buildup to the Big Summer Event. It's basically just an excuse to get the two incarnations of Death's Head to fight, which is a fun enough concept. But it's a rather light read without much substance.

Sadly, it's been the highlight of the whole "Revolutionary War" thing, which up to this point, has been incredibly disappointing.
But hey, at least the get an reference in for "giant robots"
