When last we left Megatron he had captured Dr. Biggles-Jones, and Cobra Commander had been left with a fraction of the promised Cybertronian tech, but a fraction that could still be dangerous in his hands.

If you ever wonder what inspires creators to take up the more commercial end of the comic writing business (eg toy-hawking lines)... apart from a need to pay rent and put food on the table like the rest of us... well, I suspect it's because every now and again something comes along which makes it ALL worthwhile!

The only surprise is that it took until issue 14 )

I recently came across this story in old copies of Transformers Weekly I found in a longbox, and thought I'd share.

There's a G1 cartoon episode, "Autobot Spike", which deals with what happens when the mind of a wounded Spike Witwicky (the Autobots human sidekick) is placed inside a convenient robot body made out of spare Autobot parts whilst his body undergoes a life saving operation. Naturally, he goes stark staring mad, and runs amok, until he is eventually stopped and brought back to be restored to his old self... As disturbing Frankenstein body-horror stories go, it's not a bad 22 minute toy-based cartoon.

This is NOT that story, though it does examine the question... "What CAN a race of 40 foot tall alien battle robots possibly do to help their squishy little human buddy stay safe?"

The cover offers a clue... (The story is written by Transformers legend Simon Furman, and the art is a very early example of Barry Kitson, another find of Marvel UK)

Well, it was this or they try to find a second hand Gundam going cheap )

Because I'm choosing to interpret "cosmic heroes" as "mechanoid bounty-hunters who were constructed to house the life-essences of extra-dimensional techno-mages and who fought a demi-gods who consumed the universe on the astral plane before being tossed through the time stream by mischievous Lords of Time."

Sounds pretty darn cosmic to me.

However, most of the time, he just wants the cash, yes?

A few pages from issue #5 of the Marvel UK title Dragons Claws. Death's Head was just being repositioned as a solo star after initially being created for the UK Transformers comic and had a couple of guest slots on the way to the relaunch in his own American format title.

This is one of them - after The Doctor (yes, from Doctor Who, who became a semi-regular thorn in Death's Head side) dumped him in the year 8162, bounty hunter freelance peacekeeping agent Death's Head is employed by a rival gang to subdue the violent Jones Boys. Unfortunately, Dragon's Claws - a team of government enforcers - have also been sent to do the same job.

Why is this moment perfect? Because even when demonstrating epic badassery, the one and only thing Death's Head is interested in is his bottom line.

On a bit of a Death's Head kick at the moment (again) following his brief revival in Kieron Gillen's S.W.O.R.D.

So, here's some vintage Death's Head, from #1 of his solo series, written by Simon Furman and with art by some young jobbing artist called Bryan Hitch, or something.

In which Death's Head illustrates rule #2 of the bounty hunting freelance peacekeeping business.
