Guido's cover was in the 5-page preview that was up on IDW's website, and I totally forgot that I didn't post it here!
The cover shows Drift- both as himself and as Deadlock, his name from his time as a Decepticon.
Artwork by (Guido Guidi)
Colors by: MY PUNK ASS!

I think... this might have been the very image that caught my attention to the Drift series! I saw this somewhere and was like, " WHOA, this dude had an evil past or something?" And the more I looked it up, the more I wanted badly to read it! I got the Hardcover Complete collection.
Anyway, I've always loved the colors on this cover! It fascinated me that Drift as "Deadlock" had the darker facial complexion that accented his equally dark demeanor, and the "renewed" good Drift's lighter facial tone is certainly associated with someone who's not evil. Appears more youthful, even.
This is a very striking image, and your colors on Mr. Guidi's artwork (and Mr. Milne's in the mini-series) have done TF Drift amazing justice!
Thank you so much for bringing your coloring magic to Transformers!
Ill try it out.
Could you explain how you get the optics and the lightning to glow? I've been experimenting a bit and I can't figure it out :/
is not good for the dermal plating i supose lol!
I so want to read the minis but it seems my comic book store isn't planning on bringing them TT_TT Makes me sad. I want to know the story behind Drit baby!
Since I missed so much, I've been rather delighted by TPBs having all the covers, AHM vol 1 is a treasure, it has them without bar codes etc., some of my favourite art = some of those covers...
Now Hasbro needs to make a new Deadlock figure.
Your colors are always smexy, Dye. Just like you.
When Dreamwave was around, I LOVED collecting all their covers.
And I'm very much a "cover" person, if that makes sense...
The toy helps the Drift love XD! I was indifferent on the guy(didn't like/hate him- in fact, aside from knowing he was created, I really didn't notice him too much in the comics to form an opinion of him); but having the toy really made me hyper while I was working on this book(I think I found him while working on issue 3- issues 2 and 3 are colored rather dull compared to issues 1 and 4).
