Nice anecdote about MD Bright's creation of that Transformers Are All Dead comic book cover

Christopher Priest describes hiring Bright to paint it, and what came next:

The cover was rejected by Hasbro, the Transformers licensor, because—and yes, some corporate types really are just this stupid—they feared kids would stop buying Transformer toys because they'd believe they were all dead

(I absolutely did believe they were all basically dead, and of course was dying to know how it happened and what would happen next.)
