  • It’s been a pleasure getting to work with Dheerai Verma—collaborating with him as a writer on a few Transformers comics and and as an editor on Transformers and on G.l. Joe. Dheerai brings a grit and realism to the page—even when the story is fantasy, even when it’s about giant robots battling on another planet, Dheeraj grounds the action and makes you feel, hear, even smell every bolt, every dripping oil leak, every movement of the characters. But his real trick is that he brings that realism without sacrificing excitement”. his work feels true but always dynamic and dramatic. You can’t ask for much more.

  • Dheerai Verma's paintings are reflection of intense emotion. His long experience as an illustrator of Transformer Comics has left a positive impact on his painting in terms of expression of myriad of emotions and amazing details in every respect. I wish him a good luck and best wishes.
