ComicPageOfTheWeekend: Death's Head meets The Doctor

How  mind boggling is this page? Death's Head is a character that originated in Marvel UK pages, used in the Transformers comics before being brought over to the regular Marvel Universe. And used to play off random crossovers like this one with Doctor Who below! I can't imagine the hassle producers would have to go through to recreate this page on the big screen:

  1. Having just read Death's Head first appearance in Transformers earlier this month, it was interesting to see how a character who was just supposed to be a one-off because so popular among both the readers and the writers due to how he was drawn and written. According to the interviews in the book, Furman and Senior pretty much love doing Death's Head, they pretty much got him out of Transformers with Timey Whimey logic into the Doctor Who story (also by Furman in Marvel UK) then worked on their own book, which I think might've been a few books long. (Interesting read Transformers UK Classics. Don't just get the stories in TFUK, but long synopsis by MTMTE writer James Roberts and interviews with former Marvel UK staff about behind the scenes stuff.)

    1. He's a pretty fun "odd character" for sure. From his looks to his speech.

      He's probably safely secured as a Marvel IP nowadays, I would guess.

    2. He is. His last appearance was around 2-3 years ago, I believe. (SWORD, Iron Man, Avenging Spider-Man, UK Revolution and such)
