Neat. I now wish for more official stuff. not fan made plots
That doesn’t make it not a poorly-conceived and worse executed fanfiction, however well-intentioned it was. When we say we want Season 4 material we mean we want actual, official content with some involvement from the original writers and artists.
I mean the homeless can't complain, after all, the ground is free.
The "it free so you can't complain about" excuse. If someone gave you free food and you got food poisoning from it, you wouldn't complain?
I think the food poisoning part comparison is harsh. Nobody said this is an official TFA work and nobody asked anyone to accept it as such. This was a labor of love by fans like us and the revenue from the physical comics sold all went to charity. In my books that kind of act has to be supported rather than bashed.
That also isn’t a reason for us to not be able to criticize the quality.
Criticizing the quality is one thing. I myself as a big TFA fan would have liked more quality out of it. Comparing it to food poisoning is too much.
Was Sentinel always this dumb? Why would he ever think Strika wouldn't stab him in the back?
I think it's less about whether he expected the 'cons to keep their word or not, and more about him being overconfident about his plans to stab THEM in the back.
Have you forgotten about when he hired lockdown?
Honestly yes, I haven't watched any animated in about three years. But if anything that should better inform his opinion to just tell Strika to get bent.
I liked it.
Yes, it's a fanfiction. It shows.
Yes, Adobe Illustrator isn't the best app if you want to emulate a feel of an animated show with static painted scene backgrounds.
It still is lots of unpaid work and love put into this book.
Yeah, like. Sentinel isn't a traitor, but he doesn't see it that way - he sees it as him being super smart and snaring the Decepticons in a clever trap!
(Jim has stated that he was very firm that Sentinel had nothing to do with Cyclonus going after Ultra Magnus - he wasn't fond of the old man but he's still not going to orchestrate his murder.)
yea, sentinel is just an over confident, narcissistic a-hole that thinks he's better than everyone else
It being free and unofficial should NOT BAR IT FROM CRITICISM. I wrote a bloody video game fanfic for school then posted it online under the notion that the plot and characters have coherence from a grading and writing perspective and makes sense in its universe. This thing breaks all sorts of rules, intrigue, and consistency for the sake of it being ready out the door by fans for fans expecting more of the same from fans of Animated. This comic breaks Optimus Prime's progression of the show to make him young and dumb again, Sentinel looking more like a traitor then some arrogant fool who wanted the power, Sari suddenly being the key to everyone's problems aka a Mary Sue, the art getting worse and worse with no quality control, and in one panel essentially took the piss out of IDW'S spin of a popular character.
So with all due respect, this comic sucks, but really people should not have had their expectations this high for what is essentially a free comic book day issue that's from a fan convention.
"Keep you expectations low, and you'll never be disappointed."
To be fair, this had some pretty big names put time into it, including major community figures and people who had previously done officially licensed work, so really it's borderline inexcusable.
