    Now that we're at the end of this season, I'd like to thank you all again. When I started this project, admittedly, the initial plan was not as elaborate as it ended up being. My initial co-author Megatronski had only a few loose events planned out, including the events that would one day become the Siege of Acadeimos as a Season 1 Finale. The fact that I was able to take such a basic framework and expand on it as much as I had while wrapping up several plotlines in the process is no doubt the result of the efforts of everyone who I worked with to make such a thing reality. And the fact that all of you stuck around for it, or at least binged it to this point, is also commendable. I've had my own periods of time where I've doubted the effort I've put into this would've been worth it, but I kept going in spite of this. But here we are now, at the end of a metaphorical "Year 1" which took about four years to create (webcomic time, amirite?) and now I'm presented with an opportunity to rest.

    So, what's next? Well, dear reader, that's a good question.

    During production of Season 2, I was told by a dear friend that certain aspects of the comic were holding me back, so I decided to lighten my burden by sidelining a few issues (and in the case of one, scavenging it for plotlines that ended up in the Siege series) and pushing forward with more relevant plotlines. During the time I'll be taking a break, I will sporadically post at least two of these issues, giving a view of what might've been.

    As for now, however, I need time to recover from this season, and I doubt I can set up anything more beyond a base premise right now because future me will hate current me for it-

    -though knowing what they can do, I doubt I... huh. For some reason I cannot recall the purpose behind this paragraph.

    Ah well. See you all around, guys.

    Congratulations to everyone who has worked on this!

    I may not have been involved very much beyond the beginning stages, but it's been incredibly interesting to watch just how much this series has evolved and changed over time from the concept I pitched to Stonecrusher back in early 2017.

    Best wishes to the current AutoAca crew, I can't wait to see what you guys cook up next.

    I'll be the first to tell you I am on the extreme periphery of the AA crew. But this is real sweet on your part, Megs.

    Honestly, the last time I remember Mini even appearing in something remotely resembling a significant role was that chapter when he was filling in for Ultra Magnus during an autograph session.

    While I do agree that PETA as an organization is horrible, animal rights activists as a whole are overall not as bad as PETA's stooges.

    Also, I'd argue the dude who's been trafficking sentient beings could be considered the bigger asshole here.

    But let's not split hairs here.

    Anyone who cares about animals over people must suffer.

    Iiiiiii think we should just drop it. We're here to read & react to comics, not discuss the virtues and ethics of Animal support groups.

    You seem like you’d end up like Vincent D’onofrio in Jurassic World
