This is my cover for the TPB collection of recent Transformers: Spotlight issues for IDW Publishing. I wanted to depict that the issue contained 5 stories about different characters, and link it stylistically to the covers I had illustrated for the All Hail Megatron series. Top to Bottom: Blurr, Jazz, Drift, Cliffjumper, Metroplex.

I threw in a bit of Autobot typography for effect. It gives the whole thing a Japanesey feel - and I know how you guys love things that are Japanesey ;)

The stories of a speed freak, cool dude, ninja, hothead and citybot in one package. I've generally avoided this one despite buying the other Spotlights, as I never really liked All Hail Megatron. It came across like a bad GI cartoon episode, with extra violence and Michael Bay-seque moments.

Your covers for it though are excellent.

Awesome stuff, awesome stuff. I'm proud to have had something to do do with the inspiration for this cover. ;)

Though, are you sure this is for the trade of All Hail Megatron? Because those are the five characters in the next Spotlight trade.

Yes, it's actually the Spotlight trade, but it's going to have "All Hail Megatron 3" written on the cover to tie it to the main series. I was confused about this too!

...Lol, is it bad that I have all 5 of these issues and I'm contemplating buying the trade for this cover alone?

Gotta love that japanezey stuff! ;)

Turned out really nice, as has the whole project really - I think of this piece, my favorite pieces are the prowl and Metroplex segments - and thats possibly the first time ever I've been impressed my metroplex artwork, so extra kudos to you! ;)
