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:

Pretty good, even if the art could've been a *tad* better.

Hmmm, I guess that thing about the coneheads being in the Nemesis at the end of Beast Wars isn't canonical since it didn't end up in the ep, so they could have come over on the space bridge before 'Dinobot Island', just like in issue 21, making this the best type of G1 mosaic: one that could take place in cartoon or comic continuity!

...oh, wait, in the comics there were no female TFs until Arcee's creation in '95. Unless there always were a few female TFs but no one ever realized it because the concept of gender was so meaningless to their species...

Ah, who cares? Slipstream still ret-cons into G1 smoother than Lugnut...

The story is a possible G1 addition but the art in this put me right off, sorry. They tried to mix G1 and Animated and this time it didn't work besides Slipstream's Tetrajet, which does look great. My problem is the other Seekers. What's up with the coneheads? Not only do Dirge and Ramjet have the same wings, they are also upside down. Thrust looks like he is standing on a box for that shot. I'm sorry if I offended the people who created this but that's how I see this one. This one is best left behind.

'Like'

And artistic license could allow an artist to flip wings and so forth, especially on Cybertronian robot mode (pre-Earth).

BUt yes, it does seem to have a problem being in only one of the existing continuities.

I like, and on the artistic side. It works, very well actually. Its a style that I want more of thanks to animated :D

>The art style is decent, however, one should refrain from copy & pasting similar character models--at least have different poses.

>Story is interesting, though hardly compelling. "My name is..." gags are cliché and add very little characterization. Often times, one is told to demonstrate these personalities and attributes than opposed to simply stating them. This mosaic suffers from this attempt. Reframing the scene where there is action can help dig the script out of the ground.

Great story. I guess it would be hard to live up to the awesomeness of the OG 3! Not tryin to be a jerk here, but the art seems a lil' bit phoned in... Still, very good snippet of TF storyline! :APPLAUSE:

Well, I for one can actually sit back and enjoy a good short story as a stand alone piece without having to tear it to pieces. I liked this one and got a kick out of Slipstreams very blunt summarization of each of the other Seekers that she was left to deal with. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I like this Mosaic, and how it introduces Slipstream to the G1 animated canon. Though it worries me that she may be dead by the time of Season 2.

LOL...There's a Cy-kill statue in the background on the last frame.
