TRANSFORMERS MOSAIC: "Picking Up the Pieces"

Postby WhiteRabbit » Fri Nov 09, 2007 12:56 am

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:

It should be noted that while this project has been recognized by IDW Publishing and Hasbro, none of the works presented have been commissioned or solicited by either company. The stories are not official canon, except where noted.
These stories are the result of Transformers enthusiasts taking the time out of their busy days to contribute to a universe they love.
No one has been paid for the production of these stories.

This piece is called “Picking Up The Pieces”. Story and Art by Melissa (Wayward Insecticon) DeHaan.

I find I really love Wayward's work, both her Mosaics and on her website... she's a great artist and a sharp, witty writer. The art on this one *is* unique... has the feel of some sort of blended colored pencil.

I like the end panel... it's rather sweet. Sort of a love/irritation partnership, it seems (kind of like how I've felt about some of the co-workers I've had, actually).

Oh, and ThunderZap: Waspinator does get a line, sort of... "bzzthibbit". ;) (I love the little "ouchie" symbols, too... such neat little details!)

:lol: Don't know if she meant for it to be funny, but I found it a little bit amusing. I also like the line at the end, shows that Terrorsaur has more of a comradely with his teamates than Starscream does.

Definitely a great one ;)^ .

Loving the expression in the first frame. Terorsaur (sp?) is really brought alive in this piece.

Was that the sound of Waspinator blowing a raspberry in response to Terrorsaur's line about it being on purpose?

Front Paged and Credited.

Love the art in this one, and seeing Waspinator in pieces is hilarious even in comic form.

Anything that reminds me of how often Waspinator got blown up, cut up, or otherwise destroyed is a good thing!

I didn't even see who wrote it until I got done reading it. It seemed so much like Wayward's art and sense of humor that I had to check to see if it was one of hers. Go Melissa!

I love this one. The living jigsaw, great line. In a way I think Waspinator's the jester, but I also feel sorry for how he winds up in pieces every other episode.
