I slightly altered the preview art - the cone of the Nemesis is supposed to go over the logo.
Anyways, I had finally met Mairghread Scott at BotCon, and we talked a little about what was coming up in the last two issues, and discussed cover ideas. She fed me some info, and I scribbled out a rough thumbnail while she was standing there. A little bit later Carlos stopped by to say hi, and I showed in the little sketch, and gave me the green light to go ahead. Mairghread had to clear the reveal with the show runners, and I was moving forward.
Unfortunately, that little sketch was on commission scrap paper, that got thrown out when I got home.
Anyways, after I got settled back into the office, I went ahead and did the layout sketch, to make sure it was still what we all wanted:
That got the go ahead, and I took it to inks:
And then to final:
This might be my favorite of the run, I really like the mood; the ominous discovery of an Aubotbot discovering Megatron's ship, back on Cybertron.

Charticon is this weekend! I'll be there Friday through Sunday. There's a meet and greet patio party Friday night, and I'll be on the con floor the whole weekend, but I'll step away, for just a bit on Saturday afternoon, to join the IDW artists panel.
As usual, I'll have prints, sketchbooks, originals, and will be available for commissions during the show. Here's a more comprehensive overview of what I'll have with me:
Also, I'll be participating in the Charticon Charity Auction, supporting A Child's Place. I'm donating a Transformers Prime : Beast Hunters #1 sketch cover:
Also, I saw there's a couple of Rage of the Dinobots series in the auction, winners are welcome to stop by and get them signed as well. I'm hoping it's a massively successful event!
Hope to see you there!
Oh, and one more thing. Charticon, NC + Discovery Shark Week = Sharkticon Week, on the Bad Flip Blog. Every week day I'll post a sketch of a shark themed bot...you know, for fun.
We start with Hammer Strike.
