Gunduz Agayev, an artist acclaimed for his work on illustration series such as, "Just Leaders", "War and Peace", and "Imagine" is back with a new collection he calls, "Transformers".

In this series Agayev casts politicians as transformers. Check out the leader of North Korea, the British Queen, and many others. Who'd administer unrivaled power over them all though?

Oh what's up Kim Jong-un?

Well Angela Merkel woke up on the right side of the bed.

Point is, let's never mix real life-threatening missiles and Michael Bay missiles ever again, shall we?

For the record, the cover story of this issue is about the World Cup. Of course:
