Part of the whole HasCon weekend experience was a first look at IDW Publishing’s new Visionaries comic (well, technically Transformers vs. Visionaries comic) and the first glimpse at the design aesthetics for these more modern Visionaries.
So far, as one would expect, the reactions have been visceral, with a lot of hate being piled upon them. Myself? Honestly? I love them.
I won’t lie, I’ve been more than a little discouraged by IDW’s recent track record with G.I. Joe comics (aside from Hama and Gallant’s stellar continued work on ARAH) and as much as I’ve tried to get into and excited for Revolution, Revolutionaries and First Strike, I can’t quite get as pumped up as I want to be.
However, this first look at the Visionaries? I’m loving it. Over at Visionaries.Net, they’ve really dissected the reveals and taken a deep dive into this first peek into this side of the Hasbro universe and have done a spectacular job at it, too. If you have even a passing interest in Visionaries, you need to hit TheVisionaries.net and see the cool stuff they’re doing.
Check out some of the mirrored images below, courtesy of IDW, but a bunch more are also over at TheVisionaries.net. Some good stuff.
