The solicitations for the Marvel books out in July 2017 have been released, which means an old friend of the Transformers has been spotted once more in the cosmic pages of another title. Last we heard of the freelance peace-keeper was in Revolutionary War, at the hands of Nick Roche. This time, it's Saladin Ahmed and Chris Ward's Black Bolt #3! Check out the description below, and a couple of images, yes?

Nah, not enough for me to want to purchase a Marvel comic again. Now if it was a full on Death's Head series focussing solely on him and build up his own universe with none of the marvel superhero crossover stuff I may be tempted. Even more so if it was by Furman and Senior. I can dream.

Death's Head has appeared multiple times since Revolutionary War. He had a great run in X-men '92 last year, appeared in Nova #3 a couple of months ago and appears in Guardians of the Galaxy: Dream On which is out today. He's definitely getting more exposure, possibly due to an upcoming solo series which was hinted at by Marvel in 2015 though this may have been canned since it's been a while.

I haven't picked up a marvel or DC book in over two years. Just too much crap. I did get nick riches issue he did that starred Deaths Head a few years ago and that was pretty good.

i love that take on DH's original look.

havent bought a marvel book in an age though. its bleeding mental just how quickly you can fall out of that universe. i've been collecting since the 70s FFS and im completely lost as to how to collect the xmen anymore, let alone know WTF is going on in the book. god help a newbie trying to get into the scene

though like others if marvel got furman/senior to do a series i'd be TOTALLY there.

We have a new sighting of the Freelance Peacekeeping Agent extraordinaire that has often crossed paths with the Transformers universe in the Marvel comics of old - as he is still indeed part of the Marvel sandbox, and last we saw was appearing in the Saladin Ahmed / Chris J Ward Black Bolt series almost a year ago.

This week, the totally not a bounty hunter reappears in the pages of a cosmic Marvel comic, as he squares off against Chris Powell, the superhero known as Darkhawk - originally co-created by Tom DeFalco, who was editor of the Transformers G1 and G2 comics after Jim Shooter! A small universe, yes? Check out the variant cover by Ron Lim (and colourist) for the issue below, and a snippet from the interview with writers Chris Sims and Chad Bowers that doesn't mention Death's Head at all - though the comic does indeed have more that a cameo.

Nrama: What’s your message about this title to fans who love Darkhawk but haven’t seen him for a while, or for those who haven’t read his comics before?

Bowers: If you’re a fan of Darkhawk from back in the day, he’s still that guy! Chris Powell, the blue collar kid with an edge against crime. Only now he fights crime in outer space, too, and it’s even cooler than it sounds!

Sims: And if you’ve never read his comics before, we can all but guarantee that there’s something here for everyone. We’ve got a good guy trying to do right by the universe, a villain who’s been forced into a terrible situation by forces beyond his control, sentient alien fighter jets, and even a little romance. We wanted to do the biggest, boldest, wildest Darkhawk story ever, and c’mon. Do you really want to miss out on that?

Guys, I can't believe Starscream finally takes the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos to erase Megatron from history.

An absolutely abysmal rendition of Death's Head. Not only is the character nothing like the professional business man we know and love but the artistic rendition is, honestly, the worst I have ever seen. Which is really sad as the art in general in Darkhawk is pretty good (much better than the second rate writing of the whole book), but Death's Head barely resembles Death's Head. It wouldn't have taken much to make him look kick-ass either. Left side is how he appears in Darkhawk, right is a quick and dirty edit by me. Really disappointing and a let down from the Editor, writer and artist.

Just read it, I don't even like Marvel stuff but eh i thought i'd try it.

'perps were last seen at the corner of Furman and Hitch..." Nice reference to Death's Head co-creator Simon Furman and to Bryan Hitch who drew the original one page High Noon Tex strip that introduced the character.
Anyways yeah the character looks much more sorta-fantasy style than the usual shiny, sharp robot he normally is but it's alright. Still better looking than Death's Head 2 or 3.0. That Ron Lim variant cover is a tribute to the original DH design. I maaay read the next issue but as i said i'm not at all a marvel fan these days so i ain't sure.

Oh man I hate being this guy......
Technically Tom DeFalco was the Editor In Chief of Marvel Comics and not just the Editor of Transformers. In other words he oversaw all the Marvel comics made at that time.
