The cover art looks more like a traditional illustration for a "Ladybird" book, rather than a comic. However, it doesn't look like a Transformer illustration used in a Ladybird book, if anyone gets what I mean. Lots of browns make it look muted and old to me. Perhaps that was the intention?
Rather than this:

It reminds me of that awesome poster that everyone had (except for me) in the 80's, you know that one with the big Decepticon symbol in the background.

Thanks for the info, I did not know about that sticker book, and the TFwiki says it was also released in the USA, guess I just missed it.
I do remember the sticker book made for Transformers The Movie though.

It was very expensive.
Basicall, sticker albums were the IAPs of their dy. Many albums were even given away free, like freemium games these days...

What we see in the images mirrored below is a re-offering of the cover art by Oshima Yuki for volume 1, as first seen here, along with the de-lettering and re-lettering and balloon placing process to adapt a Western script to Japanese conventions and words, and a sequence of original covers with commentary (though all in Japanese, so we currently have little idea of what is said - if you can read and translate, please let us know!). Check it all out below!

As you might remember, Hero-X is releasing the Japanese translation of the original Marvel Transformers comics, complete with Japanese commentary and covers done by Japanese artists. Volume 1 was released in February of this year, and if enough interest is shown, they will print the entire US run in Japanese.
This cover for Volume 2 was done by artist Ichikara Hirofumi, and is an homage to the famous scene where Megatron and Shockwave have their final battle for leadership. This new volume is expected to drop by the end of November.
Check out the cover below, and let us know what you think of it below!
