Who Homages the Watchmen?


Graphic designer James Biggie sent along this homage to, I'm assuming, this. Which now has me wanting to see what Dave Gibbons would do with a TRANSFORMERS cover.

Actually, Gibbons HAS drawn a Transformers cover: the hardcover of Titan's collection of issues #56-62 of the Marvel series, Primal Scream. It's a rather okay Grimlock in dinosaur mode.

So you're saying we've got a shot at talking him into another one... excellent. (not likely, I know, but it's nice to dream)

Titan got a pretty cool lineup for their TF hardcovers. Phil Jimenez, Alex Maleev, Bryan Hitch, Ron Garney, Howard Chaykin, IDW's own John Byrne, the late Seth Fisher, even Frank Quitely!

Speaking of TF, are there going to be any Transformers creative people besides yourself and Andy Schmidt at NYCC?

Hey Chris, thanks for the post!

You know, I actually think there is a real Alan Moore Transformers refernce. It appears in the Superman story he and Gibbons did called "For the Man who has Everything".

Superman's imaginary son, and a nurse are playing with these transforming robots. One converts into a 'trundle gun' or something like that.

Dave Gibbons also drew the cover for #133 of Transformers UK - Death's Head poised to chop off Rodimus Prime's head.

Not that I'm aware of, no. That could change, though.

I love the homage. Very nicely done. Will this cover be seeing print, or is it designed as an art piece just to enjoy on the site here?

The latter, just a fun piece James sent me that I thought deserved a wider audience.
