Transformers: War Journal.

Story; John-Paul Bove, Josh van Reyk & Jon Stone.
Art; Tom Parish, Casey Coller, Matt C. Adams, Shane Anderson, Richard Cookson, Stanley Chou, John Flores, Jon Stone, Stavros Kundromichalis & Jeremy Tiongson.
Colors; John-Paul Bove.
Letters; Bernie Lee.
Covers; Josh Burcham, Tom Parrish, Kent Lin.
Sketch Cover; Andrew Wildman.


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.

This sounds like a really cool project. Is that First Aid or is it someone else, and will the story include more Autobots than in the pic?

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

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).
