DAMN GOOD ONE! Some pretty good/scary details in the background.

Pretty sweet.

But it can't beat The Last Enemy.

That's awesome, and so very much the style of the real thing. I do like the use of Jazz, Tracks, and Razorclaw like the Spotlight: Jazz.

Best one yet. I say it beats the last enemy just for the art work and fluid writing style.
This artist really deserves some props.

Anyone else manage to spot "Eve" over Silvertreak's right shoulder?

Oh yes! Autobot casualties. Rust to pieces, Inferno and Tracks (EDIT: And Gears).

...

Okay, I didn't mean that, but I do get a kick out of dead transformers. Especially main cast members.

Great work. Who is the red hanging guy?

Some of the good/scary details I was talking about. Good eye.

Looks like Grapple instead of Inferno, noticed the crumpled crane boom above him and the cable and hook are what Gears is hanging from, Excellent!

Reminds me of the atmosphere in the original "Predator". Anyways, if you follow the old "Spotlight" series, 5 Predacons are no match for Jazz :lol:

I was also wondering why there was a naked chic in the background. I never would have noticed if I hadn't noticed Razorclaw drawn in faintly with the background.

Very well done.

Very well drawn and written. Yeah, I was expecting to see the Predator at the end, too the way it was stylized.

AWESOME!!!! Great story and artwork. I love how you can see Razorclaw before his reveal at the end. He is drawn in earlier panels but he is hard to see if you aren't looking for him. I missed Eve too. There is a lot going on in these panels. It's Mosaics like these that make me sad that soon we wont get anymore new ones.

That was great, very atmospheric story and the artwork looks like genuine official work.

I'm perplexed about the lady in the background though. Who is Eve? (aside from the biblical figure)

I just took that as an architectural detail of a ruin in the jungle... not as a literal nude woman with an apple hanging out... you know... like Tomb Raider or Indiana Jones scenery. Am I wrong here? :-?

Hi gang. I'm Matt, the artist that drew this week's Mosaic. First off, thank you all for the kind words. They are greatly appreciated. And now, please allow me to address this naked lady issue.


That's Joana's "Treesha." I snuck her into the background in the hopes that she would color the page for us. As you can see, she's an amazing colorist. She's done a lot of IDW's stuff. Remember Casey Coller's Optimus with American Flag AHM cover? She colored it.

Hope that clears up the issue.
