:shock: That... That... That... That... (*slaps face*) That has to be the single most beautiful piece of Transformers artwork ever produced in the whole span of all 30 years from 1984 to today! Sarah Stone should be given a slaggin' medal for just that art piece alone! Why, make her become the official permanent artist for all things Transformers from here on out and we'll likely never have to worry about bad artwork ever again! :KREMZEEK:

Are you being sarcastic, based on what's been said before on this thread?

I do really like it though, reminds me of Möbius for some reason. Looking good.

Does this look like I'm sarcastic?

This artwork is drop. Dead! GORGEOUS! I cannot praise any further since no amount of praise could even begin to hope to do it justice! =P~

Wallpaper. NOW.

I wish the actual toy's jet mode looked like that, with all the red and "face paint." Though looking at the toy again it does look like the VTOLs can actually swivel down like that, which is really awesome.

:APPLAUSE:
That is a beautiful page, the colours just pop and I love the transformation scene starting in the top establishing panel, crossing over from the panel into the negative space, moving between negative space and the border-less panel and then ending in the border-less panel.

I love it and it shows that someone knows her page layout and shots. :x

I really Realy like the artwork for this, as it goes against the other styles present in the ongoing series. The one thing honestly though is it feels a bit odd, like game concept art, at least in the first panel of the skyline.

Hot damn, that is some beautiful artwork! While I don't want to lose the Roche/Milne combo (and man do I miss E.J. Su), I'd love to see Sarah Stone guest in the main series.

This is the first time ever in Transformers history that we have a female Autobot that can convert to a jet. (Beast Wars Metals Airazor doesn't count.) Awesome. I'm looking forward to this comic and character. This artwork is very powerful.

I'll add my voice to all the others: that does look really really good! :D

I feel like there may be some sort of Fiona Staples influence, especially in how the background is rendered compared to the foreground. :-?

But yes, very much looking forward to this next month!

Looks good, has a very distinct rendered look to it, almost reminds me of Transformers animated!

What about Armada Airazor?

Or Animated Kappa Supreme (technically a starship, but still an aircraft)?

Really looking forward to this. I like the part in the article where she said it's a good jumping on point for new readers as Windblade will be learning what is going on at the same time as new readers. This is the first month I will be reading Transformers comics again in years, so hopefully it helps me understand things better.
