After getting a glimpse at Alex Milne's cover for Unicron #6, we have yet another cover from the final IDW universe ending issue, this time at the hands of its original artist: EJ Su! The final issue cover gives us Unicron in the background as Optimus Prime poses like Christ on the cross and with a slight glow around him, while Soundwave, Starscream, Bumblebee, and Windblade's heads all float around him. EJ Su was the original IDW Transformers artist, penciling the Infiltration, Escalation, and Devastation series, in addition to spotlights around the same time and some covers and interiors since.

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

EARTH WAR! With Unicron's ultimate goal revealed, the shaky alliance of Autobots and Decepticons is all that stands between Earth and the planet-eater. Heroes will rise-and fall-as Optimus Prime journeys into the dark heart of Unicron for the final confrontation with evil. At stake: the soul of a universe.

This is it! The end of an era! Finishing off 13 years' worth of continuity with a bang!
A double-sized story for the ages!
Don't miss the cover by the man who introduced the IDW age of Transformers: E.J. Su!

Cause his whole head and helmet is rounded on the same contours, the traditional helmet is more blocky and angular

Prime doesn't even look like that. His arms are outstretched, but he's flexing them, as if in triumph. He doesn't look like he's being crucified. It's a pretty good cover, though.

For those keeping track, Unicron 5 has been pushed from next week to 10/10. Unicron 6 has moved from 10/24 to 10/31.

Knowing that Andrew Griffith is/was a last minute tag-in to help with some pages on 6 makes me think that one might get pushed into November.

So that would mean we would get the epilogue before the final chapter? I know unicron as a miniseries has spoiled what happens in Op but for op then to spoil the ending of unicron...

Current schedule would have them out on the same day, so I guess we'll see! If Unicron 6 gets pushed further then yeah, that would be a shame, assuming the solicits for OP 25 are to be believed.
