    TFW2005.COM is proud to present it's first online comic, featuring none other than the site's mascot - BOOMBOX! This story will be told within the Generation 1 mytho, showing the adventures of Boombox as he interacts with classic Transformers on Cybertron. This has been a long time coming, featuring a story by Tony Bacala, art by Stavros Kundromichalis, colors by Nick Maradin, letters by Brian McDonald. Brian McDonald also did the colors on the cover. The comic is presented in an interactive format using Flash technology, so you can browse through page by page with some special effects, and even listen to a new Tony Bacala beat while reading! What are you waiting for, check it out now!

    That was pretty cool.

    The beats were nice, but I couldn't get any of the volume sliders to work.

    Thats because I had to embed the music into the actual gallery, rather than use the tracklist feature. Wouldn't loop otherwise. Sorry bout that.

    Great idea and nicely executed. only issue I had was the prologue text was a bit hard to read in the squished font.

    Beautiful artwork. I wouldn't be surprised if IDW tapped these guys some time in the future. Their work looks as good (if not better) than much of what is in comic shops today.

    I like the comic. The flash interface is a pain though.
