    Hey, everybody. I've been spending some time thinking about trying to do a more "serious" comic where the Autobots and Decepticons are still mortal enemies (as opposed to my other comic; The Unseen Stories where everybody are nice guys. Since my current arc in Unseen Stories is set to continue in Spring, and I'm running out of filler material ideas other than bios, I decided to try my hand at a serious comic at last. Please keep in mind that all of this takes place on other worlds, but since I don't have any backgrounds of mechanical buildings or planets, just a lightbox set-up, I will have to improvise alot such as using old TF Voyager boxes as fabricated walls.

    I also want to significantly reduce the amount of cast I have to work with, as I find working with a certain few characters (I.E. the Aerialbots) instead of a whole collection of TF's and whatnot is better for character development in the short term, and I want to do more of that, too.

    Anyways, enough excuses, I need to get this puppy started eventually! So, without further ado, I present:

    PROJECT: E.V.A.
    Chapter 1.1: "This Old House"

    NOTES:

    1. The panel after Megatron says "However..." is supposed to be him swinging the sword and making the wound which decapitates Landmine. The delayed falling of the head is for effect.

    2. The Howlback Megatron is refering to is actually the N.E.S.T. Mail-Away repaint of ROTF Ravage w/ the chrome. I do intend to have that redeco in addition to the Ravage I already have, so I consider Mail-Away Ravage as his G1 counterpart's redeco of Howlback (who was female).

    3. Landmine will come back. How soon...I'm not saying!

    Cool start. Megatron gets a fun little bit of self-analysis in, too. Always like to see a little humor in a serious situation.

    Aaah, Megatron, you and your graceful way of dealin' with the "You'll kill me anyways even though it'll lead my buddies right here!"-situation... :D 

    But... the fact he's willin' to take such a risk can only mean that whatever they're cookin' up isn't takin' too much longer...

    You'll just have to wait and see!:ev: 

    I needed something for Megatron to do while Landmine's body slowly fell to the ground, and I always noticed how most Megatrons always started monologuing to the Autobots, so it was time to make fun of that...with Megatron himself:lol 

    Indeed. But what can the Autobots do in time?

    Thanks:D

    Interesting start, looking forward to seeing where this one goes. Loved the delayed-decapitation slice. That worked very well.:thumbs2:

    Glad you liked it!:D 

    Sorry, no Spartan super soilders will be appearing in this comic, plus nowhere around me ever sells those figures, anyways.

    But just to get the ball rolling some more, here's the next segment:

    Chapter 1.2: "You only live...twice?"

    NOTES:

    1. Surprised that Landmine didn't die even though all signs pointed to him being another easily-killed redshirt? The ability of his to survive decapitation will be explained later on, since Landmine is (probably obviously) a main character.

    2. Yeah, I slipped the Duocons into this, although they disappear after screaming about brain-eating zombies. They're supposed to have run into each other and caused themselves to split into two components (their vehicle halves in the robot part configurations) before getting conked out. The reality is that I moved them out of the picture so Landmine's decending-from-the-table-shot could be done. They don't appear later on, so chalk it up as a momentary cameo.

    3. Barricade's unfinished joke is roughly taken from the first strip from Transshinki World and Friends! where Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime are interupted by Bumblebee. I wanted something appropriate for a bunch of guys drinking, and a joke involving beer and naked women seemed appropriate, even for Decepticons:D 

    4. I totally did not know that Landmine's hands could tightly grasp what Scalpel has for a "neck" part when I shot this strip, I accadently discovered it when I was trying to get the pair in a "WHERE'S METAL GEAR?!" pose, Landmine being in Solid Snake's position of course.

    Ah...So THAT'S what you're getting at. Interesting plot premise, Burnout--I like it! I take it you won't want me to leak what I've surmised of Project EVA?

    Now that's a twist!

    I swear, that's a spacetime-displaced BRT* Cruellock there. He's completely in character, except that he's dead, so it can't be him. :) 

    I think I know what Eva's going to be, but I could be wrong, given that we've already had one crazy plot twist. :D 

    *The universe is actually named "Lyle", of course.
