    The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

    These are some of those stories. This is:

    I love the concept, execution-wise, the artwork, while really good, looks way too blurry, and that clashes with the sharp lettering, especially the lettering on top of the car in the last panel, which doesn't look part of the image.

    Is there a reason that it ended up so blurred?

    Seeing as how Sam's supposed to be looking for a job this time around I can see this happening. Great art, great little story, thousands of miles better then that last "Mosaic".

    This is Autobot abuse! :D 

    All in all it's great mosaic. But I have to agree, the blurriness is a bit...weird?

    I really like this one overall!

    A few things I'm noticing:

    • The page layout is much better than a few of the ones we've seen recently, but the break on panel 4 with panel 3 seems unnecessary. I could be wrong, but I've always though that if a panel is to be broken, it needs to be done for a VERY good reason.
    • The illustrations are solid, but as others have mentioned, the finishes are too blurry. That would seem like a rather easy fix, I'd think, but it might require the colorist to redo the work.
    • The rhythm moves way to fast. I mean, I get the urgency of "Let's roll!" However, I'd want some sound effects, and even the dialogue at the end seems a bit odd. Don't get me wrong, I like the speediness to it (as I feel that's a strength of the story), but it's just too quick of a read. I think that the punchline at the end would be a bit funnier if the joke was held just a little longer by some prose.
