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 Mosaic may contain some spoilers as it is set within the IDW-verse Continuity. Consider yourselves warned.

"Hail and Farewell"

Written by SIMON FURMAN | Pencils and Colors by STEVE BUCCELLATO | Inks by DON HUDSON | Letters by RICHARD STARKINGS & COMICRAFT

This Mosaic piece is presented as part of official continuity.



As always, please post your thoughts, queries, questions and comments in the original Mosaic Thread. Further discussion of the implications of this in continuity Mosaic can be discussed in Seibertron's IDW-verse Theory and Discussion Page

Hmm, so that's what they did to him. I haven't read Devastation yet, but I was dying to know what happened to Hunter and Sunstreaker after Escalation.

Now I know, and knowing is half the battle!

I forget who said it, it was a member here, but they called this happening in between one of the story arcs when these 2 went missing.

It's nice to see G1 characters move past the origional point. I also like the updated headmaster transformation, but the overall design does nothing for me.

I'm only realy critizisng since this is from Furman himself.

This takes place about two years after Transformers: Devastation.

This is absolutely stupid. As if I didn't think that Furman was a terrible writer already. Now, he goes and makes up something like this. Really, can't this guy find something factual (as it relates to the TFverse) to write about rather than inventing junk.

No f'n wonder the movie writers decided to say screw it to using Furman as a resource for the plot. (Although, despite that, we still had a pretty plot-crappy movie. Wow, us TF fans are extremely challenged in finding good writers.)

Umm... I don't know what kind of assumptions you're making about this, but it takes place firmly within the continuity Furman's writing for IDW's TF comics. He "invents" for them full time, and this is one more part of it. So guess what, it's "factual". Sunstreaker and Hunter are a Headmaster combo.

I can't tell if you're just confused because you don't know anything about those storylines, but it sure comes across like someone out of the loop jumping to asinine conclusions.

Yeah sure Furman is a crappy writer and George W Bush is a good president. :roll:

WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING??? Furman is one of the best writers that the TF community has. And this is is completely in comic context, continuity, & canon. Go read Escalation & Devastation & make a comment like this again.

He's certainly not smoking in a bar in California that's for damn sure! (and oddly enough Florida too.)

Must admit, I've never read anything from IDW before reading this (although i fondly recall Furman's stuff back since his original UK Marvel series)

But... Hunter ONION!!??

Makes the name Sparkplug Witwicky seem positively normal by comparison!

I completely understand that it is in keeping with his prior material. What I'm saying is that it is all junk and none of it makes for official canon. Just because Furman writes it, doesn't mean it's factual that Sunstreaker and Hunter O'nion are a Headmaster combo. That's just horrible writing. (Also, agree that O'nion is about the stupidest name I have ever come across for a character. But, again, not surprised, it's Furman after all.)

Side note: It is amazing how there are always such weak points made against the person when there is someone who disagrees with the majority. Actually, I think Bush is a terrible president. One of the worst ever. You didn't take the time to learn about my opinion on that, but, yet, use it to argue against me. Anyway, this is very, very common in these threads.

All my comments stand.

So the material Furman writes for the official, licensed-by-Hasbro Transformers comics is not canon eh? OK, I get it. You're just in a snit because you don't particularly care for the events taking place in that continuity (which is as much canon as any other comic series or show), so you're imposing your own WAHnon (IE- "none of this is happening!") as if fact. Ok, fair enough I guess.

The poster in question here was not making any statement as to your feelings on Dubya at all. He was comparing the validity of the statement that Furman can't write to the validity of Dubya being a great president. Has nothing to do with what YOU feel about Dubya. It's called an analogy. But I shouldn't need to tell you that, you already know everything about writing. ;)

Aye, like a house of cards. (Oh, that's called a simile by the way. I don't mean to imply you live in an actual house of cards.) :)

Oh, and Sunstreaker being forced to share an existence and consciousness with a form of life he had utter contempt for is actually good writing, by the way. :P

And "WAHnon" is (TM) WhiteRabbit. [/Colbert] ;)
