    Ultra Comix was my first attempt at a photocomic. I've decided to take my photocomicing back to its roots to remaster some classic scenes from the four Ultra Comix strips, and then add a lot more.

    Well good for Shockwave?

    Decent start, but I will say it's a little hard to follow what is happening in terms of movement.

    UCR Shockwave: Shut up, I wanted that candy!

    Yeah it's understandable that it's hard to tell what's going on, since you haven't seen my house. Comic 1 all takes place in one room-- easiest to see in the panel with Wheeljack's "big, purple, and ugly" line.

    Footnote: The Accelecharger card can be read on page 18. It explains what it is and what it does.

    With that, the Galvatron Arc has begun!

    This looks like an interesting comic. I think it is a little fast-paced, though. I'm still not sure why Shockwave and Ramjet want Megatron/Galvatron dead or why Bumblebee is helping him. Maybe take some time to explain characters and motivations?

    UCR Starscream: Ramjet?! How dare you confuse me with that scoundrel of a sweeper! I mean, I know you're a reader, but since when has Ramjet been blue?!

    Actually, Starscream... You're using Ramjet's body right now; he died and Hook did a spark transplant from your old body to his.

    UCR Starscream: Oh... uh, alright then. Sorry, DOTM Bumblebee.

    Anyways, thanks for the constructive criticism! Now, for some answers to your questions.

    1. "I'm still not sure why Shockwave and R̶a̶m̶j̶e̶t̶ Starscream want Megatron/Galvatron dead..."

    Actually, they both want each other dead. The reason being for vengeance on a certain namedropped character (and just because of random murderous sprees) in Galvatron's case, and for self-defense of the collection in Shockwave and R̶a̶m̶j̶e̶t̶ Starscream's case.

    2. "or why Bumblebee is helping him."

    The different font and purple glow on his eyes is a major hint. A bit more context will be given on this update

    3. "Maybe take some time to explain characters and motivations?"

    That's exactly what this update is-- a last-minute addition to use some NJ Collector's Con figures and worldbuild.

    Thanks for the response. I guess that explains that.

    Oh boy, Insecticons. And Hot Rod is kind of a whiner, isn't he? :lol

    No problem.

    UCR Shrapnel: Do you have a problem, problem?

    UCR Hot Rod: Whiner--?! Why you little brat! I just need to be prepared! It's the key that gives me a speed boost, not the wings!

    UCR Kup: That doesn't make sense. Those wings form an aerodynamic spoiler, which would cause a boost in speed.

    UCR Hot Rod: Oh, shut up, Kup!

    So, yeah. Vivian has laser eyes. Said laser eyes can turn Cybertronians into mindless drones for a while by blasting a direct hit to the spark and the brain module.

    Interesting.......surprised that there's not Optimus, Wreckers, or Combiner Teams (I guess with TR Kickback starting to come out, the Insecticons will have more to do......)

    No problem with Insecticons here. I just need more, myself.

    Bumblebee went mad? Odd... I wonder when and how that happened.

    Oh, trust me; I have them, they just have yet to be introduced.

    Yeah, it was what you were asking about earlier.

    Not too happy with the pictures this update, I think I was tired while shooting.

    Yeah, not too happy with the continuity errors. So here's some things that will help you understand.

    • Accel's damage to systems was from previous damage in the battle
    • Galvatron should not have a face during this update... just try to ignore it
    • In panel 10, Accel is commanding the Autobots, not speaking to himself
    • This update was intended to be released with the daily schedule, but then Sun and Moon happened.

    Like the little nods to the Movie here and there......if only there where Dinobots to keep Galvatron busy, or a Titan, or Ultra Magnus/ Optimus....

    The movie nods unintentionally doubled this update... For both terms of the word "movie". Also, the original script called for the mentioned Autobots (and several others) to get new frames after the battle. Prime can be seen in panel 1, Magnus (out of his leader class bodysuit, represented by that one Cybertron Defense Hot Shot) in panel 2, and Grimlock in panel 5, although only Prime would've gotten a new frame-- Magnus would gain his classic bodysuit and Grimlock would just be in the medbay. There was also a removed scene that showed that all of the blasts fired by the Cybertronians at Galvatron reflected back at Waspinator.

    Quick note: The original quote was "Oh geez", but I felt it didn't fit Shockwave's personality and I didn't feel like remaking the text box.

    Another note: This was actually not planned for in the script, I actually forgot my laptop couldn't play Blu-ray.

    Now, since this is the end of the Galvatron Arc's first part (which I regret starting so soon in the story...) and to catch up on things, I'll be doing a double update today.

    They maybe perhaps want to repair Bumblebee's arm if he's going to be on a strike mission with them. Glad to see he's free from Galvatron's control, though. Also, is that G2 Combiner Wars Dead End I see the legs of in the darkness?
