Transformers Tales: Conan - Page 1


<< Transformers Tales Conan cover variant

>> Transformers Tales Conan page 2


This story is a big homage to one of my favourites actors of the 1980s, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
In particular, I've always loved his Conan's movies and watched them several times.

I've also got some inspiration from Conan's Marvel comics written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith.

- The Cutthroats are Bludgeon, Skullgrin and Snarler.

- Aquilonia is a fictional country created by Robert E. Howard for his Conan's adventure. Curiously in Italy there's a city with the same name.

It all started after a post from :iconteiouja:, who gave me inspiration.

WHy yes, Pretenders and Conan mix very naturally. Seems the obvious thing to do. It's interesting what story opportunities the Pretenders open.

I agree. I think in the original comics their true potential was not completely used.

Their true potential is in interacting with Organics, and the comics (especially the later half or so) didn't put much emphasis on that.
This story reminded me of that one manga where Metalhawk fights some Decepticon Pretenders in ancient Japan and the whole Masterforce cartoon, really. Was that a partial inspiration for this one?

It's the first time ever that I hear about the manga and, concerning Masterforce, I can say that I've seen 3 or 4 episodes when I was a kid.
It was so disappointing to me that I've never watched something Masterforce related since that days.

So I can say that my inspiration isn't coming from them :-)

I have to admit, the only Japanese series I watched was the 2000's Car robots/Robots in Disguise (and that recent Triple Combination: Transformers Go! "series"), but when I was searching for that comic and read the summary for Masterforce, it sounded quite interesting.

I tried to watch some Japanese series but I don't really like them.
I think there are too many clichè.

Bellissima la combinazione con la grafica! Sembra quasi un prodotto professionale.

Grazie, e dire che è la prima volta in cui ho provato a fare un lettering da zero. :-)

Io penso che sia favoloso.

Volevo trasmettere l'idea di fantasy/antico così ho realizzato queste caption simili a pergamene.

E tutto il racconto è uscito benissimo anche grazie alla tua colorazione. Come sempre ottimo lavoro di squadra. ;-)
