Okay, probably going to regret this (ie I’ll find a way to screw it up despite the tons of lead time I’m giving myself the rest of the year, lol), been sitting on this poster thingy for a while now due to like, fear? maybe?

Older followers here might remember I had done some pages of a Transformers fancomic a couple years back, probably the slowest-to-get-anything-new-out one EVAR, lol.  Plans afoot to pick up where I left off later this year, really needing to do all the pre-planning I didn’t do last time around.  Will be doing some editing/remastering of what I had already done plus I’ll be dumping the text crawl intro and doing another far better scene to start everything off that will lead into the pages I had already done.  Also I’ll be finishing up the whole Ark launch/crash/arrival on Earth thing so I can release all the Cybertron/pre-Earth pages all at once so we can literally start from there with them on Earth and I can continue to be insanely slow at updating it and you’ll all end up hating me for it, I know this, lol.

In the meantime, I will be posting (as I go along with prepping in advance) character designs and the like that I’m working on for it and you’ll get to see all that fun stuff in the lead up so we’ll hopefully have some fun with that.  Err, I think anyways, lol.

Still going to do artwork of normal things and normal Transformers, this is just another project on top of that I have an undying and unnatural desire to work on, lol.

Anyways, once more unto the breach and all that.

Take as much time as you need to, Kris. You want it to be something you can be proud of? Then go at a pace you think will work.

What changes are you going to make?

Simplifying and replacing everyone's hands so it all fits the style better (the new hands will be from the start on any new pages going forward) as well as replacing the text intro pages with a new, fuller intro scene setting everything up better (and making some edits to existing dialogue to match up better), then lots of little under the hood stuff that's mostly just on my end.

Take your time, I understand that these things take a while, but it's going to be April 2019 in two days. Any updates?

Right now I'm currently almost done editing the changes I wanted to make to the existing pages, and then I start working on the new intro scene to replace the text intro.  Had a really rough unexpected latter-half of 2018 so I had to put everything on hold, but I'm getting back on track now.  I'm going to have some samples of the visual edits I did to post up here soon, posted on twitter (cuz its easier) but I might post them here just for new content (plus the Optimus and Megatron I did recently trying to get some social media banners done).  So its been a slower than anticipated re-start, but it has restarted and I have nothing better to do night now than plug away at this, lol :P

Sorry the comic didn't come out by year's end like I promised :(  Had some serious personal stuff pop up that had to be dealt with with kinda hosed the last 5-6 months of the year (especially the last 3) so I didn't get anything done and the whole thing was a wash :(

But!  I'm going to start small, do character art of as many characters as I can/need so I have stuff to show regularly while slowly working on comic stuff in the background, I have the new prologue all written/figured out and ready to go then I just have to rework some dialogue in the pages I've already posted and then I can carry on from there!  And hopefully 2019 will actually make this thang happen! :D

Looking forward to the story! Very cool teaser picture though I admit it made me think of the Borg queen scene from Star Trek Nemesis.
