Marvel Anounced a New Death's Head Comic Series

Postby william-james88 » Mon Mar 25, 2019 7:34 am

We have some good news, especially if you are a fan of the Marvel UK Transformers comics. At C2E2 (a Chicago based comics convention), Marvel revealed that there will be a new Death's Head comic. It will be written by Tini Howard, with art by Kei Zama who Transformers fans know well from Optimus Prime. The cover shown is by Nick Roche, another Transformers comics legend.
Here is the tweet:

More NEWS out of #WomenOfMarvel panel: @TiniHoward is exclusive to @Marvel! AND SHE'S WRITING A NEW DEATH'S HEAD SERIES!!! With artist @kei_zama! Wiccan and Hulkling are in the book as well! YES! YES! YES!

i think zama's art will work beautifully on this.

the interior in the pic is VERY geoff senior in his prime.

if it was written by coates or gillen i'd be ecstatic but i dont know howard from eve and considering the absolute dumpsterfire marvel has been on the comics front the last 4yrs or so i dont hold up much hope . i honestly wouldnt be surprised at this stage if whole swaths of the story revolve around getting coffees and eating pizza.

still i'll give it a chance as i love the idea of him bobbing around the marvel universe again.

I'm surprised in a good way that he's getting his own mini-series and isn't just another cast member within a Secret Defenders book (which doesn't exist, that's just what the tease was last year.) Of course I've read nothing outside of the Darkhawk and Sleepwalker minis so my surprise is dull ;)

Kei Zama on art is always good to hear, her art is astonishingly good. Can't comment on the writer as I don't know what they've done. I just hope it's a bit better than some of Marvel's other recent output...

Cautiously optimistic. New designs though. Always though Senior's original design was properly iconic. Why mess with it? Still, I'll have a look. Wonder if he's be gigantic, or human size?
Last I saw him, in Iron Man, he was transformer sized.

In the Darkhawk book last year he was people sized again. Big, but not Transformer big.

Honestly curious, not trying to start controversy, but considering where/when this was revealed, and the new design, I wonder if they are trying to insinuate that Death's Head is now female?

God I hope not, but I am pretty sure the Women in Marvel tag is strictly in reference to the creative side. But god I am sick of genderbendibg existing characters. Maybe if this were a Death's Head IV, I could get behind that one being female, but leave the classic DH alone.

Why the heavy Metal stage I wonder? The second cover has a guitar on his back, so it must be important, no?

It could easily just be trying to do a robotic-grunge like look? I mean even though DH is not a Transformer, we've seen some Transformers and other Robots with facial hair occasionally. I was just curious. Yeah It stands to reason the announcement has more to do with Women being involved in the creative end, but with all the mess surrounding Captain Marvel (which I've steered clear of), I wasn't sure.

Speaking of which, I updated the post with the cover in black and white:

Really cool how after all this deaths head II business and the character's evolution, he is back to looking like his old school self.

And yes, it does look like Geoff Senior in his Prime.

How excited are you guys for more artwork for the best Freelance Peacekeeping Agent in the Multiverse? I hope you said "very excited!" cause we have a bunch of new artwork to share with you today!

All of the artwork you are about to see is courtesy of artists Kei Zama, who will run interiors for the project; Nick Roche; and John McCrea. We get to see a bunch of new covers and some black and white lines, which even includes a sneaky look at one of the panels from Death's Head #1, courtesy of Zama. We also get some neat information about each cover as we go.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Death's Head quick doodle + bonus for #DrawDeathsHeadDay

...

i had forgotten to say - second image is an actual panel from DH #1


Image

HOLY! Just got the colours through from @SpicerColor for my #DeathsHead cover and they are phenomenal! Check out this tiny snippet, true believers! #marvelcomics @TiniHoward @kei_zama @NickRoche @MightyBrunstad Coming soon from Mighty @Marvel!


Image

And here's what we ended up with, line art and @therealsobreiro's INSANE colours.

Fun note: Amongst the tons of other Easter Eggs, me and @kei_zama are in the crowd at the show. She was guest-list, and I begged to be her plus one, and then stood in front of her for the duration

"simon and the furminators"

:D :D :D :D

lol.

bout the only thing im worried about artwise is the colourist. the line work looks perfect. pity we cant get aul annie halfarcee to give em a once over.

now THAT would be a nostalgia blast.

on an aside im wondering if the "rock concert" thing is a nod of the head to Doctor Who? capaldi was messing about with a guitar a couple of seasons back too. besides that the only other thing i can think of is that god awfull "rock and roll out" issue of TF !

Buce springsternn anyone ?

:D
