TRANSFORMERS MOSAIC: "The Recruit"

Postby WhiteRabbit » Tue Jan 29, 2008 11:33 pm

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.

Weapon: Gatling Cannon
I have a feeling that there should be more to this one, the end just seems a little abrupt. Other than that, I love the artwork, and the writing is excellent too!

Because they were going to be all in caps but I was short on room so I made it the way it is. Guess I should have gone one way or another, huh?

First off, the art is really cool. Prowl and Bluestreak have a youngish kind of look to them, which is fitting to the timeframe. The story works pretty well too, but the dialogue just doesn't seem "real" in my opinion. The way Prowl and Bluestreak are talking, well, they never actually talked that way that I've ever heard. It's too formal and kinda plain, and just doesn't fit their characters.

Still though, everything else is good, so this is another top-notch entry into Mosaic ;)^ .

My only problem with this is that it was to dam short.

Great art, great story, terrific dialog!

Dam I wish there was more than one page.

If the timeframe is millenia ago, then why do they have earth based modes? It makes no sense. Except when the story as it is being told is millenia further in the future....
Besides that, great art!

Art was stellar, and I am one of the few that thought it was just long enough to get the point! Story was nice too....had a tough time figuring out who was who for the first couple reads (I always read them two and three times before I comment on them), though! All in all, another lovely Mosaic! :grin:

It's a really good concept, and fits the "Mosaic" stories, but I did not like the dialogue at all. It was very difficult to understand what the characters were trying to say to each other.
