    I love the art! Also, I couldn't help but "hear" Christian Bale's voice for the first page. His narcissism was very much like Patrick Bateman (American Psycho)!

    But... this is amazing: you're the only one who found out this "hidden feature". And here I thought it was too covered by layers of Transformers lore to be reveleade.

    I REALLY enjoyed this :thumb  The artwork is really nice here :thumb 

    I do think some of the dialogue is a bit off, though. I can't imagine the use of "Philistines" as it's an earthen reference. Also, the Autobots seem a bit too prim and proper.

    Otherwise, great work :thumb  Keep at it! :)

    Thanks!

    Let's just say it's a translation issue: I mean, Screamer speaks cybertronian, while we have to adapt it to english ;) 

    We had the same issue with the Schroedinger's cat in Soundwave's story.

    Really cool stuff. Great artwork as well... do you do commissions? I'm looking to get a Starscream tattoo and really like the drawing of him here...

    Looking forward to the updates.

    NOTES

    Page 1

    The opening structure is reminiscent of Soundwave's one in SoD Shocwave/Soundwave.

    Kup is still there, greeting the newly activate mechanoids, but Starscream cannot remain carefully passive as Soundwave for long.

    Proto-kin term created by Simon Furman. A great way to replace the biological term "brothers", hardly fitting witht he sci-fi context of Transformers stories.

    Double manga tribute in this page: Starscream's self-contemplation is an hommage to Pisces Aphrodite of "Saint Seiya", while panel 5 is an hommage to "JoJo".


    Page 2

    The concept of Protoform first appeared in Beast Wars.

    This Storehouse's structure is different from the one seen in SoD Shocwave/Soundwave.

    Learn more about the nature of the Protoform Storehouses in SoD Omega Supreme.

    See the purpose of the newborn Protoforms in SoD Sentinel Prime.

    Why does Kup keep his windshield raised, even if he's not in battle? To protect himself from any kind of danger (sludge-spits included).

    The Seacons (as in Seacons Six) are special units designed to work in aquatic envirnoment.
    Six of them will unite in the mercenary group known as Seacon Six (see Profiles thread).

    Why no one knows of Starscream's specifi, such as the Null-Ray emitters? The anser is: Jhiaxus.

    Starscream's Null-Ray is a classic since his first G1 appearances.


    Page 3

    Are the Seeker Protoforms really dead? Maybe.
    But maybe not: in War Within: The Age Of Wrath, the Quintessons and Megatron conquer Cybertron using an army of mindless Seeker Drones. Where did those come from?

    Huffer is based on his The War Within version.

    Stascream may not be happy to share room with them, but this page features the origin of Skywarp and Thundercracker as well.

    I had the chance to wrote more Starscream, not only for SoD, but for another version: G1 Sunbow cartoon's. Follow this saga here.

    This is a great comic. A great filler with continuity while we wait for the ongoing to get they're stories right.

    Not even awake for ten minutes and he commits fratricide. Starscream is an asshole. ^_^

    Awesome art and story - I await the other nineteen pages.

    XD

    The term "fratricide" makes the event even stronger. I had not considered it from this perspective.

    The wait is over (partially): here is a link to the thread featuring pages 4-7!

    A Bitter Longing

    Seeds Of Deception and The Lost Seasons are glad to support "unaligned" fancomics created by friends!
