Livio Ramondelli has shared a second piece of artwork on his Twitter account, this time showing off a previously unseen unused alternate cover for the seventh issue of the digitally distributed Transformers Autocracy miniseries. This cover shows Orion Pax – the bot who would become Optimus Prime – sporting a Decepticon sigil! This, and other “cool extras”, will be featured in the back of the upcoming Transformers Autocracy trilogy trade. For those unaware, the Autocracy trilogy was made up of the eponymous Autocracy and its sequels Monstrosity and Primacy. It charts the early years of the war on Cybertron, the rise of Optimus Prime and Megatron, the tyranny of the corrupt Zeta Prime, ultimately bringing the characters to the state of war we know them for. Check out the artwork attached to this post.
