    Ah the classic tale of asking someone to do a job and never planning on paying them for it. Happens to every Bounty Hunter, I mean Freelance Peacekeeping Agent. Though shouldn't we have had previews of Knights of Pendragon before this?

    True. This isn't out until next month. KoP is out in less than two weeks.

    Loving Nick Roche's art here. Great stuff.

    Both of the first two issues have been pretty much top notch, so far.

    Holy crap, Nick Roche is working on a Marvel book! I've got absolutely no clue what this crossover is about, but Nick Roche is a fantastic talent who has far and away been the best thing about Transformers comics since IDW took over, so definitely going to support this.

    To do a small connection, Deaths Head originally comes from the Marvel Transformers comics.

    Nope. They released the unlettered for part 4 before the one for part 3. Which makes little sense since part 3 is out in less than a fortnight.

    The basis for every issue of the original Death's Head series wasn't it???

    Errr yeah where is the KoP preview? Oh well, may be Marvel realised that this is the one everyone wants to see....

    Yes they have. The best I've seen from Marvel in a long time.

    I am obviously biased......but of course.....right.

    Well...........Death's Head was an essential part of the Transformers Marvel UK series....in fact I'd go so far as to say Death's Head was a huge part of retaining my Transformers fandom over the years despite Micheal Bay trying to make me feel differently.

    For a long time I would have been in agreement....but the very eloquent and persuasive Sword is Drawn managed to convince me otherwise and see DHII as an evolution of the character rather than a replacement.....lately we've seen Paul Cornell and Alan Cowsill use the speech patterns of the original on the newer version soooooooooooo......

    But even so. I really want the original to kick his arse.....yeah that's right ARSE!!!! Not ass....arse.....that's how excited I am! I'm using my own country's syntax!!!!

    Nope. I don't get it either. Are Marvel US still pissed at *that* cliffhanger? C'mon....you know what I mean

    Second time. And no, I'm not counting when the pre-DHII Minion fought and killed DH.

    Yes didn't they have a team-up in the Incomplete Death's Head (which I bought as I'm a completest)
