Cool, Deathsaurus/Dezaurus makes his appearance in IDW. I think all we need now is a Ginrai cameo.

Doubt it. All the other combiner covers are based on the toys. Devastator is his sunbow character model. It's more than likely just a cover. It does however show hook is back at being the head and considering how prowl has been acting. I think can figure out what's coming

Is it just the way I'm looking at it, or is Devastator's right leg whited out? With Hook up top is that maybe saving some spoilers. Also, yay more DJD :CON:

Looks like something is deliberately obscured or left blank, maybe for a title or logo.

Also, both Devy and Superion look like their Sunbow counterparts, so I'm thinking it's a homage cover highlighting combiners, like the 30th anniversary covers we've been getting.

There's two covers with Superion, one based on the CW toys, one based on the G- cartoon, in the same set style as the Devaststor cover

We had seen solicitations for the IDW Publishing Trasformers: More Than Meets the Eye #39 comic book a while back, but it appears some new informations has appeared via Previews: alongside Alex Milne's cover (below), artist Hayato Sakamoto will be taking over the issue's artwork!

Sakamoto is the writer of the Transformers Legends comics, as well as as number of Kre-O comics issues, but is mostly known in the Anglophone fandom for the art of FunPub's 'Timeless' comic for BotCon 2013. Let us see how he handles the return of the DJD this March!

We were going to share these covers with the Seibertron.com review of this week's Transformers comics, but as the IDW Publishing Facebook page has shown them to all, we might as well join in the fun! Find mirrored below the retailer incentive cover variant for MTMTE and Transformers #38, showing off Megatron and Optimus Prime in a wonderfully stylised fashion and background, by Jeffrey Veregge.

The stylised Megs and Optimus are nice. I like 'em.
They make me think of ancient art somehow. I did see it has in fact native American influences, looking at the artist's background (cuz he is a native American).
