Looking For Artists! Comic Collab!

Motto: "Well That's Just Prime!"
G'Day All,

I'm trying to put together a project and I'm looking for Artists!

I've written a 4 issue Transformers story that I'm hoping to one day turn into a full comic book series. Now I'm sure that's set alarm bells off already: 4 issues = 88 pages of art; but trust me, I'm not asking that of any individual so don't worry.

The way I see it, if I can get 50 or so different artists to collaborate on the project over time, each providing one or two pages of art (unless they want to do more) then the project will come together quite well. The problem, as you've no doubt spotted, is finding 50 willing artists with spare time to donate to such a project.

So the plan is to produce just the first issue for now - 22 pages.

The story I've written is called TransWarp, and it's a climactic ending to the Great War.

The four issue series is only part of the larger TransWarp story. It follows Csirac, a Maximal Scientist who is working secretly with a team of Autobot and Maximal scientists to perfect TransWarp technology - the ability to traverse both Time and Space. Things are progressing towards a second full test (the first ending disastrously) but the lab is raided by Predacons and Csirac is kidnapped. The story features Silverbolt, Razorclaw and a few other fan favourite characters, leading to a climactic battle to end the War!

If I've tweaked your interest in any small way, please have a read, the link to it here on the board is in my Sig.

As I said, have a read if you're at all intrigued and interested, then shoot me a msg if you'd like to help out in any way.

I'm looking for artists in any medium. 2D, 3D,anything!

Looking forward to hearing from you all soon,
Cheers,
-Verno.

I'm still on the lookout! No one is interested in stretching their creative muscles on this project?

Here's the Script we'll be working with.

TransWarp: Csirac Issue #1 Final Script

Reading over the script again (in the context that I'm hoping that it is liked by the fandom and other artists will want to come on board to help create the remaining Issues) I decided it was a bit boring, so I've compressed a couple of scenes and added an extra one at the end.

The opening scene with Primal, Rattrap and Rhinox was originally 6 pages, but I'm confident the details will be easily covered in 4.

The countdown was to be 7 pages, which an awful lot of a comic, so I've shortened it to five, which is still a lot but there is method to my madness.

You see, I want the (spoilers alert) TransWarp explosion after a page turn, ie, on an even numbered page, sort of like a mini-reveal. If it's on an odd numbered page, it's already been revealed. Does that make sense?

And I've added what was the first scene of Issue #2 to the end of Issue #1, to add a bit more suspense, and get some dialogue from Silverbolt and Razorclaw, some old G1 favourites which might raise some interest with fans.

Everyone is free to have a read! I'd love some feedback, especially from comic book fans, as I'm somewhat in over my head here as I'm not well versed in Comic book formatting and such.
