G1 Transformers Comic: The Burden Hardest To Bear

Up to date current story--Pages 1-53

























































Hi all. So a awhile back a friend and I started a little attempt at a G1 inspired comic. Basically the "last" Transformer story. We decided to bypass most of the regular/alternate story lines. We wanted to keep with the original G1 cartoon and tell a tale from that world. A lost episode if you will.

We started the process by going through MANY episodes, saving stills from all that might be useful. Anyone who is familiar with that show though, knows just how bad that art could be. Some detail was great--and then it just steadily got worse and worse. But the idea was simple; screen cap, crop/cut out image, place into another background and tell the story. And thus our comic began.

But it didn't get too far. We never got the story in. We only made it a few pages in. And then we stopped it all and she moved and the story sat. Skip forward oh, two years or so...and I came upon it again. So I thought more of it. And started bringing it to life again. But I wanted to change it. I went to school for graphic arts and I decided I wanted to make this more, better. So I went back to the beginning and remade what we had. Edited some panels completely, added in a story finally and remade every single panel from scratch, relined, recolored, more detail. So now, while not as G1 cartoon looking--I'm having more fun working on this. But as a one man job, it goes at a much slower pace. But it's now a labor of love..so, on it goes.

So a sample of how it works basically:
This is the cover idea. Prime, back on Cybertron, over the bodies of the fallen Autobots.

First, find images you want to use.


Original cover idea where it was just cut/paste and in cartoon style.


When I took over and went more comic style and wanted to add a bit more elements to it. With better corrections etc. Tarnished, dinged up.


And now the finished piece.


And even further updated..



And now for an idea i've had since the beginning and finally got around to putting it in..We all know how the original cartoons had those rejoiners..and since I was bringing back G1 I wanted to open with that. So I took the screen shot of the original:






To the finished piece:




More to come.

A big thanks to Allen/Superquad7 for the assist on this one. It's still kind of funny to see just how far this page/pages have come from--but at long last, I do believe it's done.

Original Page 6: The original layout was just a single page fight scene.


Expanding upon the idea, turned it to a 2 page spread.


Script added, and some more effects added, some relined/recolored damage added.


Final Page 6 & 7:

One with some newer content. I wanted to flesh the fight scene out some more. This needed to be the big final fight between Prime and Megs.
