Merry Christmas from Optimus Prime

MarvelUK-041

Christmas has always been a great time for comic book artists to have a little fun with their characters, and this great cover for the UK Transformers Generation 1 comic is up there as one of the best.

Keeping it nice and simple, artist Will Simpson gave us a great Optimus Prime donning that magical red suit.

Within the “Christmas Breaker!” story is some great dialogue, including this panel in the Ark. “I can’t believe Prime is willingly taking part in this charade! That outfit..! Shhh….”.

This was the first of many Christmas issues of UK Transformers comics. To learn more about this issue and more, take a look at the Transformers Wikia.
