So yeah, I did the cover. It was a lot of fun to do. And I kinda wish I was doing this as a comic.
I see the confusion, but nope it was a creature discovered in Season 3 of the 80s transformers... basically 1 of a number of "failed" cybernetic bio-weapons grown by the Quintesson's prior to there dealings with the Transformers.
Yep, Transformers S3E18 The Dweller in the Depths. The plot has a lot to do with that creature & its "kin" which are all different 1 off failed weapons...For the characters its a horror movie (think Alien)
