    It's not Milne or Roche, but it looks DAMN good. I'm glad for this.

    Holy crap! That artwork does look amazing! Not in a stylized way, but crisp, clean, and full of life. It's almost as if he envisioned the art animated and translated it to a static medium.

    I have a feeling Dark Cybertron is going to be AWESOME!!!! Those preview pages look amazing.

    Neat that he got the job in part because of his DC/Transformers crossover pitch that didn't go anywhere. His promo art for that concept was pretty cool.

    Jimenez may be a clone of George Prez, but there are far worse artists whose style to follow.

    A few years back, I was in a discussion at the comic shop with the local "Expert" (a guy who was a perfect copy of the Simpsons character) who said "robot artists are lazy compared to 'real' artists."

    Well, time for him to suck it!

    Okay fine quality art will not be an issue needing attention in this run I see.

    By and large the line work is great, a solid foundation for the colouring and use of shade that I feel deserve a mention. I'm looking forward to this too with the attendant Generations figures and (toy) speculation!

    Would I be right in suggesting that one of the minor spoilers has to do with the link between a member of Orion Pax's crew and events in the last MTMTE installment? Other spoilers may have escaped me; I have some serious catching up to do with RiD.
