TRANSFORMERS MOSAIC: "Genius"

Postby WhiteRabbit » Fri Jan 25, 2008 3:34 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.


"Genius" Story by Daniel "DanielW" Worsley, Art by Sterling "Silvertide" Gee, Edits by Josh "Richter" van Reyk.

Haha, this is a nice one, not brilliant but nice.
I like it just like Perceptor.

That was funny, Precetor always was promoting himself while telling you he wasn't.

Ball and chained to a blackboard, HA

Nice how you worked the ApeFace and SnapDragon in there too, great art work!

Nice punchline :lol: . This is a great piece. It's not too serious, it has Apeface and Snapdragon, and even a cameo by that spacebridge vehicle from the original series. The art is really good too, because while at a glance it may seem a bit cartoony, it really is quite detailed, and the colors make everything very clear to read.

All in all, this was a really fun piece to read, and is definitely another top-notch entry into the world of Mosaic's ;)^ .

*sacrifices some of her dignity by giving a little sound of glee* :D

I've been wanting to see this one since I first saw the preview, and it's *so* worth it.

I think it captures some of why I like Cartoon Perceptor so much: the way he solves problems with calm composure, and the polite but slightly smug self-confidence. Also, we usually see him applying his knowledge to purely scientific/engineering matters, so it's nice to get to see that he can use his intelligence to outwit people as well.

I especially like the way his speech patterns are written as intelligent without resorting to a lot of long words. I used to speak "nerdy" when I was a teenager, and there are so few writers who get it right. (The old Marvel comics sure didn't.)

Finally, well, it's just darn funny. The fourth and fifth panels in particular make me giggle.

As for the art, I *love* this sort of style: Clean, quirky, and colorful. And I love the little smiles in the first and last panel. So... this 'Scope fan gives it two thumbs up. :D

Reminds me of the episode microbots. Perceptor does pull his weight around despite his disadvantage of not being a warrior

Wow! This one is so simple, almost childlike, but extremely well done and, well, awesome. This one has the same simple but effective feel as "Rain." The art and writing match up pretty well, and the writing is superb. Good job DanielW. I like how he speaks simply to Snapdragon and Apeface. Weren't they pretty dumb? I don't know it just makes it feel like he is a genius in a practicle way rather than based on an iq test. I always thought of percepter as a happy, mature, character rather than a socially akward dork. Seperated by others inability to be on his level rather than his total inability to function socially. Yeah for TF: Mosaic.

Actually, with the colors used, I'm thinking while close to a tetra jet the vehicle is meant to portray the typical decepticon shuttle like the one used in the space bridge episode.

Skywarp be too black for that B-)

Yes! I'm glad I'm not the only person who inteprets Perceptor this way. :D

I always thought he was one of the most well-adjusted Transformers (with Jazz and Blaster being the other two I can think of off the top of my head), happy/content with his job and abilities, and being neutral and level-headed about the war in that he neither loves it nor angsts over it. And part of his bad luck socially *is* the other Bots' reluctance to acknowledge/listen to him and his interests.

This is what I love about this project. Seems every bot out there has their champion in the fandom, and TF:M is a great vehicle to shine a little light on those bots that are loved by many but not seen in the limelight too often.
