REVELATIONS! The fate of an entire planet hangs in the balance as MEGATRON races to solve the dark riddle of Sector 113. As unseen forces move in for the kill and old friends reveal their true colors, the AUTOBOTS realize that everything—everything—is a lie. All this...and an open briefcase.

It appears to be a case of alternate futures/pasts, from the events of #32 (and hinted at a little here, with the quantum engines).
Which also means this is not the same Rewind who died at the hands of Overlord, and that opens up a whole other can of spaceworms.

This is why slipspace is a dangerous thing: it creates buttloads of headaches.

Hmmmm....doubtful. That dataslug probably contains the tape that Rodimus asked him to record of the ships travels. he lack of chromedome is puzzling but then again we still don't know where the rest of the crew or their lost light is. Rewind only survived the DJD attack because they probably didn't notice him while they were slaughtering everyone else.

The entirety of the current crew, other than the season 2 cast, all appear to be misplaced. That is a very good question, and one that #33 probably might answer, according to Roberts.
Unless he's killed them all.

Looking forward to this issue. It's nice to see Rewind back and for Robert's to have found a way to return him to the fold, while keeping us all intrigued without using the serendipitous suddenly alive for no reason that most monthly graphic stories use. Or did he?

I get a lot of questions about my process so I thought it’d be cool to break down and talk about some of my steps for illustrating covers! I hope this is helpful or interesting, it’s not quite a tutorial but perhaps it’s a glimpse into my thought process.
Step 1 | Thumbnail. The point here is to do several very fast, small, drawings, so you can’t get hung up on details. Here I’m thinking most about composition and subject. I had four originally and this one was picked to get finished.
Step 2 | Sketch. I draw on top of my thumbnail, nailing down more of the actual details. I fix any proportion isssues but I still try not to waste too much time making final lines, the sketch will go away in the end, so it just needs to be good enough for me.
Stage 9 | Final Lights. I add a harsh white rim light to both of the figures, really pulling them away from the background to finalize the painting.

All the same, it takes a lot of skill to render a good drawing even with software; and in some cases, especially with software.
