Mario from Apocalypse Comics let us know about some exciting things they have going on at New York Comic Con.

We will be bring two exclusive variants to this years New York Comic Con. The first is for Transformers #12, and is a homage to the classic Jack Kirby cover of X-Men #1. The second is for GI Joe #23 and is a homage to the unforgetable Apocalypse Now! movie poster. The TF cover features Sideswipe, Prowl, Swoop, First Aid, Brainstorm, Bombshell and Scrapper and the GI Joe cover features Baron Bludd and Duke. The reason we have chosen these specific characters to grace the covers is because they were all voiced by legendary voice actor Michael Bell who will be joining us at the convention, signing comics, figures, DVDs etc...
Also joining us at the show will be the artists of both covers, penciler Casey Coller (who also pencilled TF Spotlight Drift, Spotlight Blurr and the Ironhide mini series as well as numerous All Hail Megatron covers) and colorist John-Paul Bove. Casey will be sketching all weekend and John-Paul will be able to color sketches all weekend too as well as both siging comics.

So with three top guests and two awesome Convention Exclusive Covers, make sure you visit the Apocalypse Comics booth (booth #2281) for your collectable must haves!!!

Thanks again for all of your help!

My Very Best,

Mario

That Transformers cover is a homage to X-men #1. Bombshell in Magneto's pose, Swoop(Angel), First aid( Marvel girl), Prowl(Cyclops), Perceptor (Iceman) and Brainstorm (Beast). Good homage!

you know theres actually a lot of thought gone into that.

swoop as angel is good for the whole flying thing

brainstorm as beast is a nice nod to beasts scientist side

prowl as cyclops i just LOVE (boths dicks, in the nicest sense :) )

had to laugh at first aid as jean though. she was the more nurse like character in the early days of the book but i just love the idea of first aid going dark phoenix and taking out a solar system of cons :)

only sideswipe is a bit off as i'd see him as more gambit than iceman. still there is that rebel element.

TBH the only one that doesnt really work is bombshell. shrapnel would be the one closest to magneto with his electrical poweres.

stil kudos to the lads involved, shows its not just thrown together.

Thanks! Michael Bell only voiced 2 Decepticons (and the cover ties in to his appearance in NYCC) Bombshell and the Constructicon that's in the top left which made it one or the other...

I know! First Aid is actually one of Casey's favourite characters and he was one of the main characters in War Journal so we got a serious laugh out of First Aid in the cover. Whenever I went to colour him I just kept laughing. It's still my favourite part of the cover!
