Between losing some images in the server crash, and some new additions over on Previews world, we thought we'd bring you the art that will grace the covers of IDW's The Transformers #52 - featuring Galvatron vs Arcee in Andrew Griffith's hands, and a big, good, ol' Skylynx from Josh Burcham. Check them out mirrored below!

ALL HAIL OPTIMUS part 3! OPTIMUS PRIME has declared the Earth to be his territory... but even he can't go it alone. Now he reaches out across the galaxy to form a coalition-of old friends and older enemies.

I love Burcham's art so much. You have no idea how many art pieces of his are saved to my laptop and phone. And the AoE reference with Sky and Prime is cool :MAXIMAL:

The Josh Burcham cover reminds me of Lee Sullivan's TFUK work. Lovely stuff.

Well looks like Sky-Lynx getting severely injured *did* serve a purpose after all (CW design anyone??) I know because Hound, Trailbreaker, Smokescreen and Wheeljack are all spread out across the various series, Sky Reign is not likely to show up soon, but somehow I can see Hasbro asking IDW to shoehorn it is somehow...

But that would be nearly impossible seeing as how Trailbreaker is dead, Hound and Smokescreen are "mutinous" Lost Lighters, and Wheeljack is on Cybertron. Trailbreaker would be the biggest issue :MAXIMAL:

Eh, don't think that would bother Hasbro too much, they just issue orders. >:oP

At least Prime has a new arm.

wonder what the deal is with Skywarp? He and Blackrock doing some stuff potentially? Hmm :MAXIMAL:

I'll laugh if we get a Titan Wars Skywarp as the first seeker and his Titan Master is Blackrock and this is the first glimpses of that.

Well Livios art is getting better. Marginally.

I just want him to stop being "Event" book guy. You can tell when he rushes and when he's got the time to draw

Yeah, Livio's art always leaves me conflicted. When he really gets into something its amazing what he can do, but the quality has a tendency to vary spectacularly from panel to panel. Like that first shot of optimus on page three here is beautiful, but then immediately after you have a tilted and lopsided starscream. If anyone's in doubt about his abilities, check out the man's deviantart page, but geez I wish his talents would be utilized better on transformers comics.

Livio is IDW equivalent to Marvel UK's Jeff Anderson.

when did blackrock become all roboty-looking? I thought last issue he still sported a human face?

Already at the end of #50 we see the under-human Cybertronian side - was that not something you've come across?

I dunno. Maybe. It's been a while so I might have just forgotten about it or didn't think it would alter his appearance. It's possible that the art shift didn't help either cause I really didn't know who was what until I thought about it. I seriously thought he was some robo-butler at first glance.
