Robots In Disguise #8 and More Than Meets the Eye #8 Covers revealed

RID8cover

As revealed over the weekend during our live coverage of Botcon at the IDW panel at Botcon 2012, July will be a fun month for Transformers comics. July will be Dinobot Month as the Dinobots will be romping and stomping throughout all of IDW‘s title. For those unable to attend and missed out on some of the images shown, the artists for the books have taken the liberty to share their work with us. Andrew Griffith has posted the cover to Robots In Disguise #8 on his Deviantart and now Alex Milne has done the same with an image of the cover to More Than Meets The Eye #8.

Take a minute and check out the images attached.

    Grimlock... *spits on ground*

    So done with this lizard. His head looks different.

    IIRC that's pretty much the same head he was sporting since way back in Maximum Dinobots.

    Milne said he went with a Batman look (even the pointy ears), creeping in the shadows. Yes, that certainly fits Grimlock's character & design.

    The constant redesigns, just for the sake of doing a redesign, is getting tiresome.

    To be fair, it's only his head and the little lights that seem to be redesigned. And at least the recent wave of new bodies was largely explained as a sort of return to their heritage.

    True, but is Grimlock the type to be sneaking around, ready to pounce from above? The lights are probably to make Grimlock better resemble his FOC version.

    You're taking his words WAY out of context. Milne's actual words were:

    it has a batman feel to it, which i did not intend until after i stated placing in the shadows and i thought, why not go pretty heavy on the shadows like in the batman comics i read. this was the result, and i like how it turned out

    Besides this is just the cover, He might look different inside. Take a look at his Rodimus design on the MTMTE 1 cover spread. It's changed when he went doing the interiors.

    Taking words out of context is how people get super angry about nothing at all!

    Stop taking away their hobbies, you monster!

    Anyway, narratively it is ABOUT DAMN TIME Grimlock came back. That tease in LSotW nearly killed me. I also want to see someone other than Simon take on writing him in the comics.

    I'm still really excited to see a Grimlock penned by the Elder God Roberts.
