    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:

    Brillant! It explains the Megatron Origin mini-series in one page and set's up the begining of Infilltration. (with a nice nod to Stormbringer ta boot.)

    Great job by everyone.

    Job's a good one Josh! I've been looking forward to seeing a sequential piece of work from you for some time now. So are you still working on the Classics comic you teased us with a while back?

    As for the story of this particular Mosaic piece, well untill i get fully up to speed with the IDW universe i'll have to take this as a prequel teaser!!

    Very cool. Reflected TC is a neat visual, and I love the focus on the ideology...
    ...but I knew this was coming :D  This time, though, I kinda agree with you. Coulda had some Megatrony outbursts, smashing tables or something.

    its basically the thing that some mosaic instalments bug me.

    you have good art, and a decent script. but put those 2 together does not automatically make a good comic. you know how some books dont translate well into cinema? thats how i find this piece. if i read it in prose form i might have been impressed, but in comic form i feel its kinda flat.

    the basic storytelling arc of beginning - middle - end should be applicable whether its a 60 page GN, 22 page single issue and in this case, a one pager. i hope more writers like these recognize the strength of visual storytelling medium and apply them more effectively.
