    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:

    Not a fan of the art style here but I get a basic idea of where this is going plot wise.

    I think Bludgeon was masquerading as Ramjet and Dirge, andLockdown saw through the disguise and tore it away.

    That made absolutely no sense at all.

    Not sure what's going on story-wise.

    The title already heavily implies it's Lockdown, so having his appearance being the surprise is pointless.

    Bludgeon and Lockdown are freakishly deformed and organic, which clash heavily against the Coneheads. It certainly doesn't help the former are Movie-styled while the latter are Classics.

    Panels 1-5 tell the story ok, but Panel #6 is way to jarring. Bludgeon just pops up as if he was in the scene previously. I also am not a fan of the organic finishes to the artwork.

    I think this one is ambitious, but it is lacking in several areas.

    I dunno, I kind of like the organic-styling. The look suits Bludgeon, and heck even Lockdown has a pretty organic vibe to him with that neck and all, so with them being the primary characters, I think it was a sensible, if bold and unexpected, choice.

    I agree that Bludegeon shows up out of nowhere, which hurts the presentation. It took 2-3 reads to suss out what was going on, but as a high-concept (and IMO even a visual exploration), this one works for me.

    I wish the original contributers would drop in and comment on these more often than they seem to.

    I kinda dig the art, but the story is kinda pointless. One page face off does not a tale make.
