Dario Brizuela shows off TFA comic pencils!

Dario Brizuela, just updated his blog with three pencils from the upcoming Transformers Animated Comic to be released by IDW this summer. Don't worry there are no story spoilers. These three pages are mostly recap from the intro movie. What do you think of this first look at unfinished in-book art by Dario?

This looks nice. Not that great though. I'll get em if I see em.

hmm... I'm a little torn to be honest. On the one hand, I like that it's so faithful to the cartoon, but then on the other hand, I would have liked to see a more realistic artstyle that hte comics are used to. It would have been interesting to see Animated in a noncartoony way.

Wouldn't non-cartoony Animated be a bit oxymoronic?

Indeed it would. I would not want TFA characters shown with much more detail than their cartoon or toy counterparts. I also don't want to see Sari as the sexualized manga teen as she has been drawn elsewhere. Glad to see they're remaining faithful to the source.

What's more interesting is the way these series of events is being depicted here. Seems to be out of order from the exact way things happen in the cartoon. I remember commentary at the panels how this series is going to be a retelling of the intro movie "from a different perspective." Like as that perceived by inhabitants of the planet Cybertron... The fact that the story is laid out the way it is, is what's interesting to me.

Here's the thing, I really liked the look of the Autobots in those pictures, but I completely agree that Sari shouldn't look so mature. Sari aside, however, I felt that those pictures really captured the essence of Animated all the while making it look cleaner. I just think that what Milne (I believe it was him) had done (again with the exception of Sari) was create a good middle ground between the Animated Series and the TF Comics styles we have come to know. I would have liked to see it play out, is all.

just sent Jason another email and this time with some suprises!! :D I like the art style for the animated comics, hopefully they'll turn out good! hopefully they'll show the non-show characters like oilslick in there so I'll feel a need to pick that guy up.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-20 15:28:20
Yeah, you're right. They should draw TFA characters with this level of detail! (as seen in our Alts blog!)

Dang, I love this guy's work!

i just want to see oil slick. i wonder if the syory will be diffrent than the show?

Nice artwork, definitely could stand next to Jack Kirby.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-20 18:00:22
It will be different in the sense that they are original stories. It will be "the same" in the sense that these comics will fit directly into TFA continuity, because the cartoons and comics are written by the same person: Marty Isenberg.

Next to Jack Kirby? ah, I'm not sure if that's much of a compliment in today's era of comic art, but okay.

This may be the first TF comic series I'll read since its set within the show's continuity, which is different from most of the past comics which were in their own continuity apart from the TV series.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-05-20 19:14:06
why haven't you read the past comics sabr? personal preference, or dont have a comic book store near you?
I LOVED every second of war within, hearts of steel, beast wars, and the megatron origins series of the comics and I would HIGHLY recomend them to anyone who is a fan.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-20 19:33:03
The Beast Wars comics are in continuity to the show, but they ignore the continuity of BWII and Neo... kinda. The Ascending sort of acts as if the events of BWII and Neo take place prior to the Gathering, which doesn't nescessarily make sense considering that all of the characters are devoid of their Beast Modes in the comics. I'd have to say in that case what you consider is in continuity is personal preference. I personally prefer the animated series over the Gathering and Ascending.

Okay, this really isn't on topic, but I just ahd to say this. I just found three different Animated toys at my local Zellers, and I bought one of each, so I know have Cybertron mode Optimus, Prowl, and Lockdown, all of which are awesome toys! Just had to say that.

A little of both, Lord Megs. I like to follow the stories of the animated continuities. If there's some form of fiction that contradicts it, I tend to ignore it.

Plus, I don't know of any comic shop near me. And the ones I do find selling comics only have those of Batman, Wonder Woman, Sonic the Hedgehog, X-Men, and Superman.

Off topic: Hey does any one know where Botcon 09 will be? Also, any one here going to the TF Con in Toronto. I MIGHT go.

we probably won't know until around christmas,(maybe). I've been asking the same question and no ones managed to answer yet. (response to Sabr): same here, there were several comic retailers that sold transformers comics but they only lasted for about a couple months. all I have now is a borders books store and a slackers cd's and games store and neither of them have any transformers material.;( oh well
