Now that we've got your attention and let your minds stew over the picture, "Transformers: War Journal" is a full 22-page web comic created by Transformers fans that will be released on 31 st of December, 2007.

The one thing that the "Transformers: Mosaic" project has shown, is that when fans come together to achieve a shared vision, there is no limit to what can be accomplished. Allthough not directly linked to "Transformers: Mosaic", "Transformers: War Journal" is produced by some of its memebers and is kind of the next evolution to the project.

In "Transformers: War Journal", a group of Autobots are marooned on an alien planet fighting a loosing battle against a superior Decepticon force. The story focuses on the war's affect on the individual; what adversities they have to overcome, what responsibilities they have to bare and what sacrifices they have to make.


We'll be peeling away pieces of the above picture, both here and http://tf-war-journal.deviantart.com/ as well as releasing previews until the final release on New Years Eve.

Thought that's what it was, as it was mentioned in the Newsrama interview.

It'll be great I have a feeling :grin: .

The tallest head looks a little like Roadbuster. Could make sense as he's pretty much all soldier.

Wow, really interesting to have the pacifist First-Aid stuck in a situation like that. I'm VERY interested in seeing what happens here...

Me too; It's always nice to see some of the less "iconic" characters get some attention/exposure. And I agree that First Aid is an intriguing choice, poor fellow.

jazzrules wrote:I'm gonna say that Superion is the gestalt we'll be seeing :-?


Heh! That would be cool, but... I have to say if the Aerialbots are in it, since they always seem to be so close-knit in their appearances, it'd be more intriguing to explore what happens when one or more of them isn't available. (As much as I love Silverbolt, I think he'd be the most interesting-resulting choice to leave out, since he seems to be the glue that keeps the others in line and focused.)

That's just idle ponderings from me, though. I look forward to whatever the writers have come up with. :D

looks like the arealbots going to be the main characters possibly focusing on silverbolts fear of heights but i could be wrong. great work keep it up.

I'm casting a vote for Powerglide, anybody with me on that? Only cuz the guy next to First-Aid looks to have a conehead

I don't think so... Powerglide's head is flush in his cone, whereas this one looks to have his head in front of the nosecone (the way the Aerialbots do).

No Roadbuster or Powerglide.

I'm curious as to whether it fits into any previous G1 incarnation or is totally new. Would love if it tied in with the marvel G1 and g2 comics.

War Journal features more than just the 4 characters pictured here... some of them may be the other Protectobots... or not...

It's connected to IDW's universe. Sort of.

We tried really hard to keep in in continuity, but it was a bit tricky not knowing what IDW had planned.

we had to make a few changes as new solicits were announced.

I'll be watching for this. Mosaic is brilliant and if this is the next level (kind of), I shall await with bated breath! I am consistently staggered by what the Fandom can do for the good. Mosaic being foremost in my mind at this point!

Does one of them have his family killed and then become a murderous vigilante out for blood, er, oil?

A G1 story written by fans. No Furman. No hint of religion or silly sub-factions. I'm in!

I'd say just write what you need to for the story and not let what IDW does worry or bother you. Most people are concerned just with the characters and more familiar with the shows, I'd wager. Certainly I'm still catching up on the *old* TF comics, let alone the new ones. :oops:
