    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:

    Love the art. Also, good self-perception by Prowl. We never did really get his reasoning for his point-of-view on things.

    Very nice. I like the background given to Prowl, you never get enough motivations for some of the Transformers out there.

    good art as expected and nice story, but something feels off. especially the bit where the end panel, the action doesnt really looks like it fits the dialogue. could be just me tho.

    It's definitely just you. The end panel is perfectly fitting if you understand it. This is actually a TF: Mosaic with great art and a great story.

    The art is fantastic.

    The story is pretty original, too. I assume that's Prowl's sarcasm at the end where he laments why he takes things seriously. Really makes him out to be a bitter person. Maybe that's why I like Perceptor's story so much, because it was so original with him outsmarting the Headmasters like that and using the chemicals on his chains. Him smiling at the end while he flew away was perfect. This has me thinking the same, only instead of a happy ending, it leaves with a bitter one. But because that's intentional, that's a good thing.

    One of my favourites.

    Man, I can usually usually quote your Mosaic posts for truth, but not this time.

    This is prolly one of the best Mosaic's I've seen, and the dialogue is perfect--can be read a few different ways (I don't see the sarcasm Split Lip does, but I see how you could read it that way), but that's not a bad thing. Asking the reader to interpret a portion of a work can be a good thing.

    My favorite part is the two middle panels showing the change in Praxus and in Prowl.

    I think I see what KA means. I know he's just putting his hand on his chest, but it almost looks like he's bowing... sorta.

    The sarcasm I speek of isn't like nasty snarky-ness, more like the "Gee, sorry for caring" because despite Prowl trying hard to be serious and atone for past 'mistakes' he goes un-appreciated and is often beratted for being stuck-up or dull, which makes him feel like the others don't care about what he does and it makes him bitter.

    Great mosaic, love seeing Prowl take center stage and get some insight into him.
    Alot of people tend to find the straitlaced characters like Prowl boring, but it's the opposite for me, these types and the quieter bots are usually the deeper, more interesting type of character and it's great to see that eluded to in this mosaic.
    The art is beautiful too. More like this one please!
