    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:

    WARNING: NITCKPING GEEKERY TO FOLLOW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    Okay, I see Ravage, Buzzsaw and Ratbat, them I get. I presume the red cat is Howlback, although she was more of a brown in the actual canon. I dunno what colours Overkill has in the prose stories as I haven't read them, but Slugfest has Ramhorn's colours, I know that. Did Beastbox combine with Squalktalk off panel or something? And none of the three Frumble-mold characters have that colour scheme. Frenzy is Eject, RUmble is Rewind (as far as I can tell given the setting he's in) and Enemy...well, he's a friggin' head.

    That said, funny mosaic is funny. And sweet merciful Batman, that Scrounge design is BADASS. I want a full body shot of that bastard (and a more detailed transformation sequence). Sort of...now-ish.

    The art is stylized and wonderful, but the writing leaves a good bit to be desired. It isn't hard to follow, just not very coherent.

    Not saying it's bad, but the last panels are kind of broken with everyone having a line. I think the art speaks for itself sometimes, and less text can be better.

    I think this would've been better without text at all. The internal monologue is kind of pointless and the dialogue is very disjointed at the end. (exactly what or who's statement is Ravage finishing? He just randomly says "...and then play!") The art is great. Very expressive, colourful, and unique.

    "...and then play!" is driving me nuts. What is that line supposed to follow?

    It's a bit of both, the grammer and spelling are both a bit off throughout, and the positioning of the speech bubbles in that panel makes it read in the wrong order, ie.

    "Hi Scrounge. Nice to see you again. ...And then play! Me first! We need to delete his data."

    I assume it should instead read like this:

    "Hi Scrounge. Nice to see you again. We need to delete his data. ...And then play! Me first! "

    Overall though it's a good piece.

    Your colors are good tfsc, I wouldn't worry if it's a little different from canon, it's your team's comic and you do the best you can.. and now that I've read some of the other posts, I can understand what folks are saying about the placement of the word balloons. Even in the IDW comics it can sometimes be confusing (for me) to follow the right balloon in the next section..but I can see that yep, it's a little confusing to read. Otherwise nice work!!

    I think you're fallacy here is that you're only thinking of the radio shaped in Enemy's head. This came out at the same time as well:

    Enemy (AM Radio) - Toy Gallery - Photo #2

    Regardless, we now have a full-fledged toy with the Encore Soundblaster reissue.

    More on Quaddy's beloved Enemy here: Enemy (G1) - Transformers Wiki

    Yep! In panel 1, Starscream's proportions are a bit odd. Also, while tfc does a nice job coloring this, the colors are a bit flat in places.

    Overall (confusing text aside), I really enjoy this one :thumb

    yeah you're probably right, but when i got it to do I didn't have a lot to go on, and the instructions were a bit of hit or miss, plus with the texting being my first I take it as a learning curve and I am sure I could do it better if I did it again ;)
