What are the best Transformers Comics Covers of all time?

Postby william-james88 » Fri May 19, 2017 10:11 am

Does any other cover beat this one?

Image

I also really like this cover with its nice homage to DC

Image

And this is my favourite cover featuring Optimus Prime

Image

So what do you guys feel are the best comics covers of all time?

Not gonna say it's one of the best; but this is definitely one of my favourites that I simply couldn't leave this thread be without posting.

Image

I want that thing as a poster.

And of course, we can't forget the sheer insanity of this thing:

Image


Please tell me you're not putting that G2 cover on the list though... it's so bad and trying way too hard to be cool and edgy.

Dude, use our database images! :D

And that cover is an homage to Roche homaging Maguire (DC's Justice League), as Milne signed it.

Image

Which was then subsequently re-homaged by Roche (homaging Milne homaging Roche homaging Maguire).

Image

Personally, I am a very big fan of the artsier ones, like Veregge or Biggie. The propaganda ones from All Hail Megatron (and Last Stand of the Wreckers) were also really really nice. As was this one by Roche, for MTMTE 15.

Image

I think the IDW readership will also happily go for this one (All Hail Megatron #1) a lot, by Casey Coller and Josh Perez(after Brian Bolland's The Killing Joke).

Image

This one will always hold a place in my spark casing.
Image

But Sarah Stone in general, I mean..
Image


The ones that Sara Pitre Durocher is doing for TAAO are also truly exquisite. This one in particular, but the whole arc run is a very good lesson in composition and the affective effect of symmetry and its lack.

'nuff said.

Personally though, it's hard to pass up any of the original Marvel UK covers, there's so many stand outs (yes, I know, you damn kids and your IDW's won't understand)

They're cute Burn, but also pretty simple in their composition and such. One that caught my eye a lot more was this one...

:looks through domains images are linked from:

:dies:

Not like the site you're already on doesn't have close to every cover, ever. Nope.
Nothing here at all.


Exasperation aside, if there's anything that really should be there covers wise that's not, do let me know and I'll get it there.


Aaaaaaaanyhow, this might be a little of an easy/safe choice, but Marvel 80:
ImageAll the hopelessness of knowing it's the end, but there's that shadow of Prime in the background. Chills. Stuff has just been bad for months in the comic for everyone, including you because for the last year only very few shops have been sporadically getting in new issues. But you see that shadow back there and you know stuff is about to go down and the bad guys are gonna get what's coming.

I checked it out, but its not easy to navigate when you dont know precisely which cover you are looking for. In a recent instant, I wanted to see that nick roche megatron cover for Lost Light, but since the covers are split into different links for the seperate issues, I had no clue how to find it since I didnt know what issue that was. So it was easier to look up "lost light megatron cover Nick Roche" on google.

And right now i am looking for the cover featuring Ravage by Jae Lee for TF vs GI Joe, but I have no clue which one it it since they are all seperated on our site.

It would be easier if there was a view to see all covers and you can filter them down if you want. Like the way the galleries work. I would type Lost Light and have all the lost light covers appear. Or type Gi Joe and have all the Gi Joe crossover stuff appear. The way it is now, you can only see the covers you want to see if you know exactly from what it is, down to the issue number.

^ There's a certain site owner that you should direct that kind of feedback to ;)

In the meantime I will lament all the time I keep spending on stuff no one uses as a resource ;_; I understand it but don't have to feel good about it.

So I was going over the covers and found these awesome ones below. But before i get there, I wanted to say that this blurb from Scotty P makes me really want to read Stormbringer:

For those of you craving unchecked, cover-to-cover giant robot action (guaranteed no humans!) on an epic scale, look no further than this special space epic. So far, in “Infiltration,” we’ve had tantalizing hints about the state of play elsewhere in the TRANSFORMERS universe, but now we look in on Cybertron itself, unlocking a dark, dark chapter in the planet’s history, one that is about to hit the Autobots and Decepticons again… full force! By the Beast Wars team supreme of Simon Furman and Don Figueroa. This special four-part series will tell one complete, self-contained cosmic epic.



Here are the covers I like:

Thats not easy to do when you arent given the option of copying the image URL. I asked the site owner and there is a workaround, but I wouldnt expect anyone who isnt told this to do that. I have recomended that we have that option so that other users can share our images with the least obstacles as possible ;)^

Also, by all means I encourage people to still answer this thread, but in the meantime any fellow staffer can check what I am up to ;)

Right click thumbnail and open link in new tab/window = new tab or window has image url.

Alternately, get thumbnail image source through right click and change "small" to "large" when adding link to forum post.

(Not defending this as ideal, just giving easier solutions)

I can't qualify if they're the "best" because that's a subjective term, but these are definitely some of my favorites:

Perez. Burcham has yet to officially collaborate (I think) with Coller. He tends to work with Perez and Joana Lafuente.

Yeah, that looks like the UK version of US issue #75. Just to be clear, that cover itself was never part of the US run, it's a UK exclusive.
