    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:

    Eh...story's OK, if a bit corny, though the writing could be a little bit better. There quality of the art bounces around quite a bit, bit I really like the panel in the upper-right corner. Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah...LAME.

    Concept is ridiculous, art isn't much better than I could do, writing is silly.

    I'd try to offer constructive criticism, but I just don't see any potential for improvement here.

    Negative, Ghost Rider. He became Soundwave.

    Although it's admittedly a lil' hard to follow.

    Meh, I really don't like this one. The art shifts in quality, the story is not good for me at all and the writing is poor.

    I said it before, I'll say it again, Mosaic NEEDS quality control.

    And this forum needs some rudeness control.

    If you don't like something that someone has worked very hard on, that's fine, just don't shit all over it.

    it's not like I'm the only person who doesnt like this mosaic. I didnt shit all over it either. I said that it needs quality control. that doesnt mean "reject stuff like this", it means have people on the mosaic team work with the people making these to make sure the panel layout is readable, and the story is clear. because with this, the panel layout is pretty random, and I have no clue what's going on with buzzsaw at the end. no QC leads to the occasional mess that no one can understand, and that hurts the mosaic project's image a lot. proper presentation can make any work shine, regardless of the art, or how much the reader doesnt agree with the story. not everyone is going to love every mosaic, but it'd be nice to at least be able to understand every mosaic.

    I do have one suggestion that I dont think anyone can take harshly. often, we see some downright amazing artwork in mosaics and we'd like to see more artwork from the person. Now, you always include their names, but not everyone goes by their real name online, making it impossible to find more of their art. I would greatly appreciate it if you could start including a link to the artist's site if they have one.

    Your points are certainly valid, and this elaboration is a lot more constructive than the last comment-- and most of the typical responses the pieces get, be they good or bad. Josh was sort of addressing all the other pointlessly negative comments in general.

    Absolutely agreed, we'll do what we can to include links whenever available. We do include internet IDs if we have them.

    It feels like a cheap fanfic. The art is really bad in some panels.
