    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:

    A very confusing one. The art is good, but the narrative is terrible. I had to spend some time to understand what was going on.

    Who's the guy talking to Longtooth?
    Why did Longtooth killed his fellow Autobots (assuming that one of them is Cloudburst?)
    So Longtooth was punished by having his spark ripped out of him?

    My favorite mosaics are the stand-alone ones. It's hard to understand when it's tied to the IDW-verse or something else.

    I don't really understand what is going on in the end? Is his spark taken out of his body and he is living all this just in his mind, because he is mental?

    Art is great!

    Absolutely stunning art.

    The story needs a bit more tightening up. I really like the idea behind it, but it reads quite clunkily, and it also needs one to understand the IDW method of imprisonment for the last panel to work.

    I like this one. If you're familiar with the IDW incarceration, I think the last panel is extremely powerful. "Helping him" soon becoming leaving him to rot when he is contained and forgotten.

    Terrible may be a bit harsh, but I certainly agree with the sentiment. I think if this problem would be fixed (someway), this would just kick all kinds of tailpipe. :)

    Seems pretty straightforward. Longtooth has attacked other Autobots (the ones with the claw marks) in order to get to Stranglehold and torture him. Fortress Maximus talks him down, says they'll help him, then instead has Longtooth's spark removed and put into detention along with other 'troublesome' Autobots like Repugnus. Not a very nice thing to do, but the facility wasn't a place where nice things happened.

    I thought the comment Maximus made at the end had double meaning... By "being among friends" you were meant to believe he was referring to Autobots at the facility, but he was actually referencing dangerous, indifferent Autobots like Repungus and co who had to be locked up too.

    After reading the IDW comics this Mosaic feels great.
