The “Star Trek vs. Transformers” variant cover (Megan Levens) looks odd, IMHO — the contrast between the high-detail, high-shading cartoon style for Windblade and Arcee, versus the low-detail Filmation-look for Uhura, M’Ress and Chapel. The Cover B (Gavin Fullerton) applies a consistent line and shading style.

Caveats: Windblade has never been rendered in hand-drawn animation, just the comics (by multiple artists) and in 3DCG (“Robots in Disguise” 2015, the Machinima trilogy, and the upcoming “Cyberverse”); and Filmation’s coloring on TAS was flat, but these images apply one shading contour to the women.

Will IDW ever make more Kelvin comics, set after beyond. Boldly go had a terrible ending and was canceled too soon.

Star Trek and transformers?? That’s the most ridiculous crossover possible!
