TF Spotlight Megatron RI cover colors by markerguru TF Spotlight Megatron RI cover colors by markerguru
well this was a special cover i got the chance to work on. The owner of the comic shop i go to asked me if i was interested in doing a cover for and store exclusive book. this was something that we had talked about many times in the past but there hadn't been a transformers one to do....until now ;p
the owner pitched the idea to me about doing a cover, but was unsure about doing it since he wasn't aware about where the books fit into the main stories. i asked what books he was offered a cover for. he mentioned a G.I.Joe one, then a tf comic about megatron. i was like ok.....then i was like, wait, what, megatron? do you mean spotlight megatron? then i was like OMG i want to do that :D
so after a discussion that day, i came up with some roughs. the owner and i went over them, and then i whipped up the cover. it was a blast to do. i love drawing this design of megatron. i know its not the most loved design, but i do enjoy drawing it. i added the store logo in the bottom cover plus a couple extra decepticons that i knew the owner liked :) it was a joy to work on
so this will be a store exclusive comic. i will have a few copies that people will be able to get from me at the various conventions i will be at, but other then from me, stadiums comics will be the only place you'll be able to get this cover of the book
here is a like to there store [link]
here a link to there facebook for the in store signing i will be doing [link]

the fabulous colors were provided by the ever so talented Josh Perez. i think he out did himself on this cover. it really turned out well
it was a joy to work with him on this project. i always wished when i was working on the ongoing comics that i would have gotten to do an issue or 2 with him.
i love all the textures he has going on in the image.

well , back to work for me
enjoy :)

The stealth bomber Megatron design was pretty cool, pity it lasted so little.

I think this is the coolest Megatron design. I haven't been able to keep up with the comics; can you or someone tell me the story behind his new body? I had a hard time finding something on the net.

He was sniped in the face by Spike Witwicky giving Prime the upper hand in a fight thus putting Megatron in critical condition. The decepticons retreated to the moon under the lead of a matrix obsessed Starscream where they would be forced to cannibalize eachother in order to survive. Shockwave and Soundwave create a new body for Megatron using ore-13(basically ultra energon). Megatron came back in this body and took leadership from Starscream after he lost the matrix to Hotrod.

Thanks. I also saw an image where Ultra Magnus is laying down on the ground in front of him; did Megatron fight him and a couple of other Autobots? Ultra Magnus is one Autobot that is not easily beaten, and is probably one of a couple of Autobots other then Optimus that can stand his own and maybe beat Megatron in a fight. Do you know what I am talking about? If you do, can you clue me in? This is the only other thing I want to know.

I think if I remember correctly there was a time when He and a bunch of other Autobots including Bluestreak and Huffer were transporting a wounded Bumblebee when they were ambushed by some hateful humans. Megatron swooped down and took them on, while the rest were tied up and left for the humans, Magnus was kept to serve as bait for Prime. It may not be accurate as I haven't read the comic for a while but that should be the just of it.

The detail on Soundwave in particular is awesome, like the Decepticon sigil is patterned off of his face (though I'm sure the opposite was the intent).
