    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:

    It should be noted that while this project has been recognized by IDW Publishing and Hasbro, none of the works presented have been commissioned or solicited by either company. The stories are not official canon, except where noted.
    These stories are the result of Transformers enthusiasts taking the time out of their busy days to contribute to a universe they love.
    No one has been paid for the production of these stories.


    Now that we're back to our regularly scheduled Mosaics, we're proud to present "The Thunder's Echo"! It's written by Daniel Bartlett (aka Knightsfury) with artwork by Chris Vera (aka Kurisama).

    i have a BIG nitpick.

    while the graphics are nice, the middle part could have had an expository flashback panel featuring action showing the clash with thunderwing to make this story less, uh, boring? theres even that dialogue bit talking abt it. otherwise, its just robots standing/lying around. very boring.

    I think "boring"is a bit harsh.

    Thundercracker is portrayed great here, very true to his orriginal tech spec.

    And the art, WOW!!

    no offense intended dude. i know youre just posting it and the creative team isnt even here to defend it, but thought id throw in my 2 cents for benefit of others.

    theres an ever inclining trend that plays down storytelling by glossing it over with eye candy, and my comments tend to be biased against it. i just think theres a right and wrong way to do comics and concise constructive comments can only help.

    im not using 'boring' here as a an insult either. its a specific description to express something that is opposite of 'exciting'.

    action = exciting
    no action = boring

    'sall good, no offense was taken :) 

    I can understand the want for action, but I feel there needs to be some break between it.

    This is painfully, painfully true. It's especially a shame that it's getting more common in comics in general as they gradually become accepted as a legitimate form of art and storytelling.

    I'd defend it here a little, though, as the point of the Mosaic stories seems to be to take a break from the fairly constant violence of the mainstream TF comics and just tell a quick personal story.
