    HEre's my attempt at a comic. Mostly serious, though i'll probably be unable to resist putting in some humor. It picks up just after my recent posts in the Cool Stuff 2020 thread.

    It'll be primitive, to start. I'll add effects when needed and flight stands when I can afford them. For now this is just an overgrown kid sharing his play.

    Rodimus: So I hear you really stuck it to the `Cons yesterday. They won't be bothering us for a while.
    Alita-1: Especially with Soundwave on the repair list.

    I'm headed over to our Havertown station for maintenance. Took a couple hits from Megatron.
    20200421_002934323_iOS.jpg


    Thinking about another refit?
    20200421_002945413_iOS.jpg


    Optimus: No, I'm happy with this body. It balances Megatron's new triple-changer form pretty well.
    Alita: I've got no complaints, either.
    Rodimus: And that's all I need to hear on that subject, thanks.
    20200421_002916812_iOS.jpg

    See you when you get back.
    20200421_003013753_iOS.jpg


    Rodimus: Enjoy your R&R, Prime. We'll cover for you. And Arcee wants us all to get together for a night out.
    Optimus: Next week maybe? See you soon, Prime.

    20200421_003802394_iOS.jpg


    Later ...

    <On radio> Sky Lynx, this is Alita. We've lost contact with our Havertown maintenance center. Go check it out. Optimus Prime was scheduled for work there.

    Optimus? Madam, I will not rest until I have your answer! No matter -
    20200421_005645484_iOS.jpg


    Sky Lynx, just get it done!
    20200421_005712957_iOS.jpg



    Yes ma`am.
    20200421_005753023_iOS.jpg


    Great Cybertron! No!
    20200421_005928128_iOS.jpg


    I promise there will be more action later on - I just needed to get the ball rolling.

    Welcome to the party.

    I use fishing line for flight.
    Why buy stands when I can spend that on bots ;)

    Nice of you to lend Sky Lynx a hand. ;) 

    Looking forward to seeing where this goes! Hope Optimus is okay. :popcorn

    Chapter 2


    "Autobots, we got an emergency! Something just knocked out the Havertown maintenance center! We need all available hands on deck to look for survivors!
    20200430_194933855_iOS.jpg


    Inferno: Man, it doesn't look good. Not much left.
    Grimlock: That not matter. Autobots trapped. Optimus might be hurt. So we work.
    20200430_195428800_iOS.jpg


    Alita-1: Any luck?
    20200430_195826819_iOS.jpg

    Slingshot: A lot of nothing so far. Good or bad.
    20200430_195832145_iOS.jpg


    If anyone needs to go refuel, I'll take over.
    20200430_195837435_iOS.jpg




    20200430_200119693_iOS.jpg




    I found someone! Grimlock, give me a hand!
    20200430_200132274_iOS.jpg


    Rodimus: It's Optimus! Hold it guys, I'll pull him out!
    20200430_200411795_iOS.jpg



    Alita-1: Is he okay?
    Rodimus: I don't know. Sky Lynx, can we get an airlift?
    20200430_200539756_iOS.jpg


    "No sooner said ...
    20200430_200920935_iOS.jpg


    ... than done!"
    20200430_201129004_iOS.jpg



    20200430_201139912_iOS.jpg
    (Please ignore the feline photobomber)


    Rodimus: Nothing about this makes sense. We had no warning of any attack. And why did Optimus upgrade? He just said ...
    Alita-1: I know. We'll get some answers when he wakes up. But for now we've still got friends to help.

    Chapter 3:


    Sky Lynx: Fast, safe shuttle service as always! Once Ratchet looks you over you'll be good as new!
    Optimus: I appreciate the ride, old friend, but I'm fine. I don't need repairs.
    20200430_234559915_iOS.jpg



    Ratchet: That was one heck of an explosion. You really should let me ...
    20200430_234631417_iOS.jpg


    Optimus: I said I'M FINE!
    20200430_234702381_iOS.jpg




    "Hey Rodimus, I got some weirdness to report ..."
    20200430_234734764_iOS.jpg




    "Thanks. Alita's on her way back. Give her that update and keep me posted."
    20200430_234908630_iOS.jpg



    "Hound find Wheeljack! Someone shot Grimlock's creator! Grimlock tear apart `Con who did this!"
    20200430_234915474_iOS.jpg



    Wreck-Gar: We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster.
    20200430_235023334_iOS.jpg



    Hound: Prime, I don't know what to make of my readings. There's no evidence of Decepticons. Usually there's some sort of "fingerprint". Resudue from weapons, something. The explosion wouldn't have destroyed it all.
    Rodimus: What about Wheeljack? Can you narrow down who might have shot him?
    Hound: That's what makes the least sense. The residual energy and damage resembles ... Optimus' rifle.
    20200430_235158349_iOS.jpg


    "Hnnn. For now, keep looking for survivors. I'll get some expert help to piece this mess together."
    20200501_000548422_iOS.jpg



    "Nightbeat? I've got a mystery for you ..."

    Chapter 4


    In Decepticon HQ:


    Hook: Lord Megatron, Lord Galvatron, the refit is complete. Allow me to introduce the new and improved Soundblaster.
    20200502_144328516_iOS.jpg



    Megatron: Welcome back, old friend.
    20200502_144407524_iOS.jpg



    Soundblaster: Thank you, my lords.
    20200502_144605078_iOS.jpg



    Buzzsaw: Boss! Glad to see you're up and about!
    20200502_144749487_iOS.jpg


    "Are the reports accurate Buzzsaw?"
    20200502_144834807_iOS.jpg



    "Yes. The Autobots' maintenance center was wrecked. They're trying to pin it on us, of course. Optimus Prime was recovered from the wreckage, but he seems ... off."
    20200502_144853737_iOS.jpg



    Soundblaster: We should capitalize on the Autobots' confusion.
    Galvatron: I agree.
    Megatron: First and foremost we should ...
    Galvatron: ... step up our "under-the-radar" energy production.
    Megatron: Precisely.
    Soundblaster: Will we attempt to rescue Rumble?
    Galvatron: Of course. Starting with a diversion to draw off some of the Autobots.
    Megatron: I know just the `Con for that job.
    20200502_145032271_iOS.jpg



    "Starscream, I need you to assemble a team for a diversionary strike"
    20200502_145125135_iOS.jpg




    "Consider it done, Megatron. Thundercracker and the boys could use some action."
    20200502_145155957_iOS.jpg



    "Excellent. Now for the rescue team."
    20200502_145125135_iOS.jpg




    20200502_145628268_iOS.jpg




    "With all due respect, Megatron, you can't be serious. The Casseticons and I can handle this far better."
    20200502_145907545_iOS.jpg




    "Your team is being refitted to match your new body. Since a small team, both in numbers and size, stand the best chance of evading Autobot security, the Insecticons are the next best choice unless we want to send in Headmasters. Wait, where's Kickback?"
    20200502_145934012_iOS.jpg



    "Still having lunch, Lord Megatron. He said he'd come 'When he was good and ready.' "
    20200502_150009184_iOS.jpg



    "Hnnn Whatever. Here's your mission ..."

    Chapter 5:


    "Listen up! There's a report of `Cons raiding the McDaniels Refinery over in Trainer!"
    20200503_235106035_iOS.jpg



    "I'll handle them. Prowl, Cliffjumper, Mirage and Jazz, you're with me. We'll make them regret the day they came online!"
    20200503_235129777_iOS.jpg




    Optimus: Transform and roll out!
    20200503_235244964_iOS.jpg



    At the refinery ...

    Thundercracker: Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to get off base, but all this just to spring that little geek?
    Starscream: What can I say? You know Rumble is one of Megatron's favorites.
    20200504_000333237_iOS.jpg




    "Just take your time. The point of this raid is to keep the Autobots busy."
    20200504_000337123_iOS.jpg





    "Well, speak of the devil ..."
    20200504_000940978_iOS.jpg




    Optimus: Surrender, evildoers, or face my wrath!
    20200504_000948663_iOS.jpg





    Cliffjumper: Is he serious?
    Jazz: Uhhh ...
    Optimus: Do you two have something important to share?
    Cliff: Nothing ...
    20200504_001829131_iOS.jpg




    "Skywarp, take out Mirage before he turns invisible!"
    20200504_000337123_iOS.jpg





    Mirage: I hate when he does that ...
    20200504_002445232_iOS.jpg




    Thundercracker: Yow!
    20200504_002454993_iOS.jpg






    20200504_002509472_iOS.jpg






    20200504_002515167_iOS.jpg




    Meanwhile, at Autobot HQ ...


    <Digging sounds>
    20200504_003559079_iOS.jpg




    20200504_003621412_iOS.jpg




    Soundblaster: Excellent work, Shrapnel
    Shrapnel: And you thought we couldn't hack it (hack it)
    20200504_003657623_iOS.jpg




    Bumblebee: Hey, stop right there!
    Bombshell: And here's the welcoming committee.
    20200504_004019901_iOS.jpg




    20200504_004049216_iOS.jpg



    20200504_004207346_iOS.jpg




    20200504_004257229_iOS.jpg



    Bombshell: Ah, the Autobots' Security Director. Just who we need.
    20200504_004419944_iOS.jpg



    Bombshell: A cerebro-shell will make you more cooperative ...
    20200504_004443167_iOS.jpg




    Soundblaster: You will tell us the location of Rumble and the security code to release him.
    Red Alert: Cell G11984. Code ... is ... Delta 539 MST3K
    20200504_004556985_iOS.jpg




    Bombshell: Now take a nap.
    20200504_004605672_iOS.jpg




    "Stinkin' Autobots. You'd think they'd at least give me a magazine."
    20200504_004740861_iOS.jpg




    Rumble: Soundwave! I knew ya wouldn't let me rot, boss!
    20200504_004803351_iOS.jpg




    Soundblaster: Now let us free the Air Strike Patrol and depart ...

    20200505_232858066_iOS.jpg




    Starscream: Catch!
    20200505_233225499_iOS.jpg

    "I surrender!"
    20200506_000359666_iOS.jpg




    Optimus: Surrender not accepted!
    Prowl: Prime, what are you ...
    20200506_000524305_iOS.jpg




    "I'm purging the universe of at least one piece of Decepticon trash ..."

    20200506_000624594_iOS.jpg

    Chapter 7:


    Thundercracker: I'm outta here!
    20200511_235310044_iOS.jpg




    Optimus: Alita-1, you'd better have a good explanation for attacking your LEADER!
    20200511_235439067_iOS.jpg




    Alita-1: You can drop the act. We knew from the beginning you're not Optimus.
    20200511_235820296_iOS.jpg




    Rodimus:vEvery Autobot leader has a unique identification code that is keyed to his spark so it can't be replicated. You don't even have the transponder.
    20200511_235828370_iOS.jpg




    "Optimus": Wheeljack hadn't installed it in this new body before the attack.
    20200511_235439067_iOS.jpg




    Ginrai: Like we're going to believe that. You couldn't act like Prime if your life depended on it. Now tell us what you did with him!
    20200511_235849791_iOS.jpg





    "Optimus": Well, it looks like the Autobots in this world aren't as stupid as the ones back home. I guess I have no choice but to ...
    20200512_000023916_iOS.jpg





    "Optimus": ... RUN!
    20200512_000456357_iOS.jpg





    Saber: He's getting away!

    I think I saw him pulling onto I-95. Might be able to catch him ...
