Ro-Busters & Carlos Pino
Just started reading the complete collection and its a terrific read of course. Must mention though Carlos Pino. He had the daunting task of taking Kevin O'Neil's initial designs and creating the first two episodes. Completely over-looked when the stunning work by McMahon, Gibbons and O'Neil shortly came along, he does some brilliant work here. Not only did he excell at hardware and robots, he drew them incredibly dynamically in places, with some unusual, very cinematic angles. Carlos, you were great.
