    This seemed to be an Arcee spotlight issue and contained an Arcee profile.

    The comic strip story featured Arcee, Jack and the return of Silas and MECH. It is set some time after the events of the ep. "Crisscross".

    Plot summary: Jack and Arcee team-up to monitor a school after a series of suspicious gas explosions break out in schools across Jasper. Against the Autobots' initial belief of the Decepticons being responsible, MECH turns out to be the culprit. Silas is after Jack, striking one school after another. When Jack sneaks off on his own to stop Silas, Arcee comes to his rescue. Trapped in a burning school, Jack and Arcee pursue Silas and his men to the roof. Despite catching Silas by surprise (with a hard kick between the legs from behind by Jack!), he still manages to escape via air. Arcee and Jack are left stranded on top of the burning school. Arcee transforms into motorcycle mode and, with Jack riding her, performs a daredevil jump off the burning roof onto the ground below! Jack apologizes to Arcee for running off and messing things up. But Arcee understands that he acted for his family and comments that she has done more dangerous things in the name of protecting those she cares about. Jack questions her about this. Arcee simply brings up the fact that she just 'jumped off the roof of a burning building'. She finishes by telling Jack that they need to let the others know of their safety.

    I'm still confused whether or not these mini plots should be considered canon with the show.

    Anyway, I'd love to get a copy of this issue somehow.

    Probably not. This story especially has a huge plothole, as it apparently takes place after Crisscross. Namely--why would Silas bother with bombing Jasper schools in search of Jack when he knows where Jack lives?

    Arcee is a master of marshal arts.

    By the way BO, would you mind scanning the rest of the comic? I will love you until either the heat death of the universe, or I forget, whichever comes first.

    Thank you for sharing..

    It would be interesting if the comic book story will be similar to one of the Prime episodes.

    Kailuguy19 probably likes those Arcee poses, right Kailuguy? :lol 

    I wouldn't mind seeing this as a Hub short, mainly because I want more MECH.

    Hnnnngh UK TFP comic. Any chance you've got the rest of them.. ? Someone had them available for download on Megaupload, but the site sort of died and the downloads were too damn big anyways.

    They're written to fit into the events of the show though not to further it so much. They can't contradict with what has happened in the series. You could take them as part of the show, but not essential to it. I always view them as separate little adventures lightly tied to the main story of the show.

    I caught that spelling mistake too.

    I'd love to show you the rest of the comic, but I dare not copy the whole thing online. Real sorry about that.

    See response above.

    I do have the earlier issues. If anyone wants to ask anything about them, I'll try to answer. But I can't copy whole comics I'm afraid.

    Fair enough. Would you mind scanning just the page with Jack kicking Silas in the nuts though? I need my daily dose of juvenile humour.

    I just tried to subscribe to the comic, and wouldn't you know it, it says they don't ship to U.S.

    Well, then, why do you put down United States as a country to ship to, you stupid website?

    Is there anywhere else I can get these comics?

    "I've never taken a human life... but there's a first time for everything - now drop 'em!"

    Arcee is a dirty liar.

    These are really nice looking comics and thanks for sharing what you can B_O!! Really wish they would be available here. The smaller TFP series comics that were to be printed and shipped here haven't made much of an appearance...not after issue 2 irrc. I have 3, 4, 5 & 6 on order and the publish dates keep getting moved out.

    But seriously, was the guy doing the drawings 13 and going through puberty? Arcee doesn't need two ass shots.

    :lol 

    Is it a grin? Or a smirk?

    You're welcome, mpl! It's too bad you guys in the US can't readily get these. But don't think of it as missing out on too much. These comics are aimed primarily at the kids rather than us older fans.


    Oh, and for you Snark:

    Oh god, I now totally want to see a season 2 episode where Silas copes with his resultant impotency.

    Also, your greatness knows no bounds, BO.
