    Okay so, the truth is my drawing tablet broke so I had to do a strip this week that needed no new art. I have a brand new, fancier, tablet of my dreams on the way in the mail, but if it doesn't arrive in time I may need to do some decepticon auditions ;)  .

    Nice! Although I find Leader-One vastly superior to the Aerialbots in every way. Poor old Gobot needs counciling...." I am special, I am special, A Go-Bot can be special....":thumbs2:

    Yep, that's Leader-1, leader of the Guardians in Go-Bots. Good piece.

    An underwater scene WITHOUT explosions?
    That's ridicules.

    edit:
    Hey Starscream made it in without a living voice actor,
    So I can't see that as a reason for Magnus to be left out.

    Jazz too though I'm assuming you meant original voice actor.

    I don't get the second last panel, but the rest are funny as hell... maybe except for the Leader-1 one.

    Magnus can't handle not having a voice actor.

    It had to be said.

    You ever notice how jokes are less funny when you have to explain them :p  It kind of illustrates the schism between original TFormers fans and the new fans. "Who's that in the last panel?" lol Maybe you should have put a Pokemon or Yu Gi Oh or Naruto character in there. Hee Hee.

    I guess I'm a newer fan(from about G2 onwards).
    I understood that it's Leader-1, but I don't get why he's posing as superion.
    Besides the fact that he's a plane.

    It's Depth Charge, he's a Manta Ray.
    So obviously a lot of his scenes would be underwater.

    And Bay is known at having a lot of explosions.
    So a suggestion of not using explosions would confuse him

    Awesome work, Matt!

    Quite a lot of TF fans over the years have put down Go-Bots as being the inferior of the 2 "big" transforming robot series from the 80's. Since it's doubtful that the Go-Bots will ever see a resurgence like TFs have (except as in-jokes from Hasbro), Leader-1 there is trying to get some love.

    It also pokes fun at Bay's ignorance of TF characters.

    One of my mantras has always been "The joke is no longer funny the moment you attempt to explain it."

    No offence intended to anyone asking for explanations, tho.
