Sweet! Sunstreaker's joined the what-are-these-stupid-human-genders club!

And Jazz is keeping up the "Black Transformer" tradition.

Eh, it's just a nod to his voice actor -- conversely, Prowl's right out of the Matrix...

YAY! Verity!







Aside from that, looks spiffy. Five pages with actual plot on them. In a row. Fantastic!

Oh I know I just find it amusing as it further compounds the black Transformer shtick. Wheeljack's rather odd; I imagine he builds time machines in his spare eh...time.

Is Sunstreaker meant to have the same hologram as Bumblebee or do they just look remarkably similar?

Bumblebee has the studenty version -- at a guess, Sunstreaker has the Dallas extra...

That always makes me laugh, though. Lots of fans will go meltdown over the idea of female Transformers, and yet claim Jazz is "black", whatever that means...

Probably something to do with fried rice and chicken. Now a real "black" transformer would be Waverider... but who gives a toss about him.


Edit: Just in case; I'm referring to the mentality of the aforementioned fans

Pencilling looks great!

Now let's hope the story is up to the task.

Prowl alt form is a police car, sholdn't Prowl's hollomatter character be a policeman to? mabey the fbi look is so he can pull rank over cops and help keep the robot thing a secret in later story arcs.

Or they're aliens from another planet and don't quite get the concept of our law enforcement.

And saying "THOHHHMASSS" as you deride your cat for failing to catch mices.


Actually, if Jazz did that this would be the greatest comic ever...

If Screamer's dies and stays dead then yes this will be the greatest comic ever. I would hope Simon is astute enough not to bring him back to life (Same for any other "deceased" characters). Then again he was the one who wrote him into the story in the first place.

you can't kill Screamer's in the first story ark. he hasn't been nearly disloyal enough to desirve that. yet

though i do agree dead bots and people should stay dead

Why? So we can have the same tired scheming Starscream story regurgitated throughout the series, its bad enough having one in the first arc. I can just about accept that the story called for a backstabber and thus Screamers is the obvious choice.

And Megs probably thinks he deserves a good old massacring; he totalled Blitzwing and co so I doubt he'll give Screamers a second thought.

you have some good points and that could be how things go

but i for one would rather see the masaker of verity+cobut that does not fit in with the story so is unlikely to hapen.

I think if your right it could be fun but i'll wait and see.

In fairness I'd rather have an established cast of humans, who get some real characterisation throughout the coarse of the series than killing them all off and getting a new cast of humans which would probably meet with the same reception anyway. Besides I really have no problem with the humans.

They're not the next Elijah, Jakita and Drummer but they do the job and are fairly believable and occasionally camp, which isn't all that bad really; adds a bit of fun "fluff" to the series. They’re by no means original but I can’t say they annoy me.

And yes they will be back

This lot of humans havn't got on my nervs much yet. i think my negative views are more to do with spike and the other g1 humans.

however in infultrations i still see them as the most expendable

If they get rid of Screamer, I'll boycott them!!!!! Or girlcot, as the case may be. If this runs true to course, he'll either end up giving Megs the new power source or he'll go down, beg for his life and give Megs the new power source.

Did I mention the new power source there? Watch out for the new power source.
