TF MTMTE 55 cover

The cover to MTMTE 55 and the last cover to the Dying of the Light story line.
This cover was a big deal for me when drawing it because I new about the death of one of the main characters (my favourite) in the series so I made a cover that reflected that. 
It was another spark flower blooming at Megatron because even indirectly, he is responsible for this death because of the whole situation the crew is in.
Then I found out about another character death in the main crew and it also works for that death as well.
So it can be one or the other or both if you like :)

Such a beautiful image of the New Megatron...or should I say the Megatron he always should have been if Trepan hadn't tampered with his brain.

Primus how I miss you and Roberts' working together. That was a very special era. You are and always will be my fave Transformers artist. Thank you for enriching my life with your stunning works❤

Impressive. Megatron actually rediscovered his soul.

This is my absolute favourite piece by you and Josh Perez. Please make this cover available as a print! Or a T-shirt!

You and James Roberts became monsters by the time you both killed Dominus Ambus  in one of the most heartbreaking moments of MTMTE. That alone left a bitter taste in my mouth. Then you killed another 'bot you made everybody love, and, at the end of the Dying of the Light, you guys showed no mercy towards cassettes. Are you guys competing with GANTZ in artistic cruelty?

That is one story I'll remember forever. One of that moments that bring greatness and excelence to the comics culture in general. You guys are awesome!!!

This is one of your most iconic images, pal. Really haunting, powerful stuff. I made a special request to my comic shop for this cover. Thank you for drawing and sharing it!

Really beautiful cover, shows how much Megatron has changed
AJsCreativeCorner's avatar
Will he stay that way though?
leokearon's avatar
I hope so, going back to being a Decepticon and evil would be a big mistake

It's an interesting storyline they have going. Can't wait to see how Grimlocks story will turn out too
