    ...Yeah, I'm doing comics now. I apologize if it feels like I'm ripping off Stonecrusher here, but the two hand-drawn comics should wind up being different enough so my work does not count as plagarism. Stoney's are funny, and I intend to take a more serious route (with some occasional humor.)

    Made on a Wacom tablet with paint and a bit of GIMP for effect.

    Not bad. I didn't copyright my drawn comics, and your style is a bit animated or Prime. Nice.

    Good luck :D

    I'll have to second what Shane said.

    Thanks you good!

    ...Somewhere, in some lonely school, an english teacher is crying.

    Actually, lots and lots of Decepticon invasions. But I'll elaborate further on that later on.

    Just wanna let you know by that last panel... in this universe, Optimus Prime is BIG. As in, he could pick up any one of his men and throw them.

    Also, Wheeljack is something of a dull silver here. He's also rather thin and gangly in contrast with some of his more recent appearances.

    Looking good so far. I gotta say I do like the drawn look and wish more people would do that here.

    So they're now going to Earth? This could get more and more interesting...

    (hey, at one point, could your comic and mine have a crossover or something?)

    Yeah, I always enjoyed drawing more than taking pictures myself.

    Yes they are. They just don't know it yet.

    Also, a crossover sounds like it has the potential to be hilarious, so I'll keep that in mind.

    Part of the reason Iacon is in such bad shape? These orbital cannons. For something that floats around the atmosphere, it's devastatingly accurate where it hits...

    Nope. It's acutually supposed to be Clench/Colossus. With, well, less ugly colors.

    But Soundwave is in here, so no worries.

    Yeah, I'd agree, I just hope the artist doesn't mind us thinking that. And I was going to say Clench looks an awful lot like Boba Fett.

    Yup.

    Thanks!

    ...Define "cute" though.

    Clench is supposed to be the guy in the back. The one in the front is supposed to be a Decepticon grunt. Think WFC.

    ...'Kay.

    Opps, sorry about that, I read your previous post wrong and thought you said the two were Clench and Cyclonus, and figured the purple one was Cyclonus. I do like seeing you using WFC-similar grunts.

    So, in the new strip, I hope Optimus is okay, he looks like he's either sad about something or dead. Let's hope he's just down and not out.

    Heavy is the head of the Autobots, isn't it.

    Optimus is still alive. Were he dead, he'd be grey.

    Considering that their entire planet is pretty much gone now, yes.

    Anyways, just to clarify-- that all took place sometime around 80-90 years ago. The Autobots would drift around space for years until settling on Earth in the 50's, where they would keep their cover the tightest due to fear of the US Government trying to use them as weapons against the Soviet union. The "present" in this comic is actually sometime in the near future, possibly around 2015 or so, though admittedly I'm no genie and it's impossible for me to tell what kind of technology we'll have by then, so all the phones and whatnot will look something like today's handheld devices despite the mentioning of stuff like "space colonies" and whatnot.

    With that loooooong introduction out of the way, I give you a first look at the main humans of this comic and their dynamic.

    Oh yeah, and have a profile to go with.
