I've been in awe of Trevor Hutchison's work on this IDW Publishing series for more than a year now. For a plot that involves conquest by the evil Decepticons, the artist turned to the imagery of Soviet propaganda posters, limited color palettes (often just two colors per cover) and a title that becomes a monolithic graphic element. This cover breaks from the oppressive gloom of previous issues as Optimus Prime, his head framed by rays of light, fills the frame, obscuring the words "All Hail Megatron" on the left. —MELROSE
