    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 it! My one criticism would be that Bludgeon's ROTF tank mode is extremely out of place since I don't know of any Japanese Type 90's having operated in northern Arctic conditions that early in WWII, but since the humans in the strip don't recognize the tank either, that's negligible.

    A little tastefullness could have been had with regards to the dead dogs Just because something's died doesn't mean you need to show the bloody and ravaged corpse. Could've done with some vague, dark outlines in the show coupled with the text, or a different angle or something.

    Also, Bludgeon seems out of place.

    Very John Carpenter-y. First time I read this I thought it was a bit too close to "The Thing".
    I do agree about the dogs, though. A silhouette frame would have been more effective.

    Wow - thanks guys for all the comments and critiques. Much appreciated!

    Autobot Burnout - you're absolutely right about the tank. He really should be a Soviet T-34 or perhaps a Panzer III. I should have redesigned him, but I guess I kept him a Type 90 for familiarity, even if it's incongruous.

    SPLIT LIP & Yaujta - I'm sorry you found the dead dogs distasteful. I wanted to hammer home the horror element, and I was careful not to draw any gore or severed limbs / open carcasses - the dogs are essentially intact but bloodied. I was actually much more hesitant to draw the hanging figure of Erik, which seemed much more bleak than the murdered dogs.
