    Hello everyone,

    Denton J. Tipton has posted on his blog a 5-page preview of the reign of Starscream. I thought that those who enjoy the comics might like to know.

    Here is a link to his blog with the pictures:

    http://fromthetip.blogspot.com/2008/04/rain-of-starscream-part-deux.html

    I do wonder if he spelled reign as rain on purpose.

    EDIT: Alex Milne has higher-res images of these pages, sans text, so you can get a nice good look at the panels by going to his Deviant Art page.

    I think it's cool that the Autobots and Decepticons actually have ships, like in Ghosts of Yesterday. It seems more convenient for them to be able to use a big space transport like that for long-distance travel, then use their protoform "comet" modes for shorter-distance voyaging.

    Story's pretty good so far. Seems like this will be a little bit of a prequel as well as a sequel to the movie. And the appearance of Prowl made me giddy. I hope he turns up in TF2.

    "Simfur"? :rolleyes2 

    Looks nice so far, but I worry about RoS conflicting with TF2. Nothing more annoying than an awesome story rendered non-canon.

    Simfur was Chris Ryall's idea.

    A homage to Simon he put into the prequel comic script.

    Whoa, is that Wheeljack in the third page, first panel? I really hope he also makes it into the next movie. I'd love to see a Wheeljack movie toy! Can't wait to read this!

    EDIT: Nevermind, that's probably Cosmos for sure. I just hope Wheeljack shows up at some point!

    Alex has the artwork on his Deviant Art page, in higher res (no text) so you guys can have a better look at the TFs. I'll put the link in the first post.

    I like the way he draws protoform Starscream. He really fits in with the other profotorms now, instead of feeling obviously Hasbro-designed. As for the story so far, it looks pretty good.

    I'm pretty sure that's an external shot of the Autobots' ship...

    Milne is such a talented artist, but these movie designs do absolutely nothing for me on the page. I mean, they pretty much work in the movie, but in the comics the overly-detailed and monochromatic schemes make everything such a muddled mess. It really gets in the way of the storytelling, which is a shame.
