    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:

    I like the art, and as a character study it's interesting, gives Blurr a bit of a classic Flash vibe.

    But I don't know what to make of the mystery woman, and Blurr's Shrapnel-esque speech pattern is odd.

    Mosaics at their best are breathtaking, but sometimes they feel sooo obscure as to have been missed opportunities.

    The title and Blurr's stuttering kinda makes me think his dialogue should be read to the beat of a heart...beat, if that makes any sense. (baDUM baDUM baDUM -> canNOT canNOT canNOT)

    It's a tad hard to visually 'read' everything in the first couple panels with all those narrow lines everywhere. Eliminate some of them, thicken the outlines, and/or add areas of flat black would help a lot; the last half does just that and is easier to read as a result.
    The final "Nobody can outrun me" feels a bit superfluous.

    I really quite like this one, though, especially since it's self-contained. While I'm sure the mystery woman is a reference to something, I don't think the lack of her identity is an issue. Blurr obviously cares enough for her to take a bullet (or three) for her; don't need anything else, really.

    I wonder which cone head that is, he looks like a ghoul and undead to me due to the artist's approach to the optics. I'm going to guess Dirge as he seems to die in more continuities than the others.
