Acclaimed artist Andy Wildman may well have drawn his last Transformer. He has updated his blog
and has this to say about drawing the last of six covers for the IDW comic books:
Andy Wildman wrote:So. Is this the end of the road for Transformers and me? I did say that these would be my last pieces of Transformers artwork. An opportunity to draw a line under the whole Transformers thing. A final opportunity to depict some of the main characters the way that I would want to depict them.
However he teases us a little about further involvement:

Of course, there are some loose story ends from the old days that it would be great to tie up. Who knows. That opportunity may still occur

Let us hope the loose end is a real finish to the G2 comic. (And yes I know about alinment but that was text and unofficial)

I hope he hasn't drawn his last Transformer. I can remember when he took over penciling the US Marvel comic. His style really grew on me so much so that I was hugely disappointed when he didn't work on the big Unicron storyline wrap-up in #75. I have very fond memories of those final issues.

As much as I love Andy Wildman for his contributions to Transformers, I'm glad he's moving on to other projects. I mean his incentive covers as of late have been just incredible, and his artwork in the 80's is what helped a lot of us to fall in love with our favorite characters but his style is outdated in contrast to what we've all become accustom to.
I will smile, be happy for him, and try to forget Dark Ages ever happened

I'm not going to be sad about this. I've never enjoyed Wildman's art when it comes to transformers. I realize I will be branded as a heretic by many but oh well, wouldn't be the first time. The problem is this: He doesn't draw robots, he draws people in armor.
Bon voyage Andy! May you find joy in projects better suited to your talents.

I agree with ImperiaxPrime no big loss, he has admitted in an interview (on the madman transformer dvds) that he never wanted to draw transformers and also that he did draw them more as people. After seeing that interview it just made me prefer the artists who are actually fans of the transformers or at least have the ability to make a machine look like a machine and not a transformer cosplay.
That said I LOVED his work with spider-man 2099, humans he CAN do.

I hope he will be commissioned to continue something from Marvel.
G2 #13 is okay but G1 #81 will be great too!
So many great stories left to tell...
IDW will continue the original Marvel GI Joe series with free-comic-book-day #155½ and will continue with issue #156.
Sure hope this will happen!!!

i'd second a return to the old series taking up after 81.
G2 would better suit geoff IMO.
I really hope he's not swearing off for good though. i REALLY REALLY liked the covers he's been doing lately. theyve got a lovely barry windsor smith feel off em.
TBH i wouldnt mind seeing a mini done in that style.
