PAGE ONE


PANEL ONE

A darkened command room. Maximus Prime, Magmatron, Silverbolt, Ironhide, Prowl and Lyo are present. Jetstorm and Snapper bolster the Predacon presence. They stand around a circular table, at the centre of which is a 3D holographic representation of Cybertron. Several red dots, representing enemy ships, are in a pattern around Cybertron, as well as a large mass in the distance -- Unicron.


1 JETSTORM

Their ships have formed up around the planet. Our window for any form of pre-emptive strike has closed.


2 LYO

Pre-emptive? What exactly did you have in mind?


PANEL TWO

A close-up of Snapper. There is no apology on his face.


3 SNAPPER

Stick a rocket up Prime’s exhaust and get him up there.


PANEL THREE

Lyo and Ironhide each have their arms crossed. They glare back at Snapper.


4 LYO

Are you insane?


5 IRONHIDE

You’d risk throwing away the Matrix? Our last line of defence?


PANEL FOUR

Jetstorm leans onto the table. His glare is exaggerated by the light from the display. Magmatron stands next to him, contemplating the hologram.


6 JETSTORM

How many of us have to die before you step up?


7 MAGMATRON

As many as it takes.


PANEL FIVE

Silverbolt tries to move the meeting forward.


8 SILVERBOLT

But that’s why we’re here -- to try and minimise that number.


9 LINK PANEL (SILVERBOLT)

Now, not many of you have seen the Empire in action, but I have, and their methods are simple.


10 LINK PANEL (SILVERBOLT)

Their warships will sit in orbit, just outside the range of any planetary defences and bombard the surface, giving cover while troops are landed.


11 LINK PANEL (SILVERBOLT)

Its equal parts brutal and effective.


PAGE TWO


PANEL ONE

Green dots rise from the surface of the holographic planet to meet the red ones.


1 PROWL

Here’s the plan.


2 LINK PANEL (PROWL)

Every fighter, starhopper, armoured shuttle and transport we can find will try to take out their landing craft, helped along by whatever the Predacons have hidden away.


PANEL TWO

Jetstorm tries to argue but Ironhide raises a threatening finger and points it squarely at him.


3 JETSTORM

What makes you think-


4 IRONHIDE

Don’t even try it. Primal’s crew still have the scars to prove the Preds have been up to a lot in recent years -- so shut it.


PANEL THREE

The hologram changes to show a platoon of soldiers in formation. An enemy transport ship flies down towards them.


5 PROWL

Our radar systems will keep track and report in on any ships that do get through, giving us time to form up and engage them before they land.


6 LINK PANEL (PROWL)

Chances are the warships won’t waste any time in taking out our global communications arrays, so it’ll be down to shortrange comms after that.


PANEL FOUR

Ironhide put his hands on his hips. He has a slightly more forlorn look on his face as he stares at the display.


7 IRONHIDE

Deaf and blind. I always liked an uphill battle, but this…


8 SILVERBOLT

It’s not ideal, but Maximal Command will relay information to everyone as best it can.


PANEL FIVE

Snapper quizzes Prowl.


9 SNAPPER

But what about these warships? Even if we do manage to take out the troops, they’ll wipe the planet clean!


10 PROWL

Once more, we’ll be asking for a miracle from the crew of the Axalon.


11 DIALOGUE PANEL (RATTRAP)

We’re doin’ what?!


PAGE THREE


PANEL ONE

Inside a large aircraft hangar, Cheetor is painting a name (AXALON II) on the front of the hull of the Autobot shuttle, which is still showing all the signs of its traumatic return to Cybertron. Optimus Primal and Rattrap walk towards the large doorway on the side of the shuttle.


1 RATTRAP

Have you forgotten our last trip in this bucket of bolts?


2 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

That’s your biggest problem with this plan?


PANEL TWO

Optimus Primal and Rattrap enter the shuttle.


3 RATTRAP

Oh, no -- ‘cos if Rhinox can actually get this thing off the ground, we’ll have the honour of bein’ turned into fireworks for the rest of the planet!


PANEL THREE

Optimus Primal and Rattrap walk down the centre corridor of the shuttle. Blackarachnia is typing into a computer terminal.


4 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Because of the ship’s vintage, it won’t register as a threat to the enemy fleet, allowing us to slip in unnoticed. That’s the theory anyway.


PANEL FOUR

Rattrap is left deflated and rooted to the spot once again.


5 RATTRAP

A theory? I’m getting back into this death-trap on a theory?!


6 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Before you even say it, Rattrap -- yes, we probably will.


PAGE FOUR


PANEL ONE

Optimus Primal walks into the shuttle’s cockpit. Rhinox is holding tools and covered in grime.


1 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

How’s it coming?


2 RHINOX

She’s about set to go.


3 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

You’re kidding?


4 RHINOX

It helps when you’re not working from scraps.


PANEL TWO

Rattrap enters the cockpit, still complaining.


5 RATTRAP

And what if someone just happens looks out a window and sees this golden hunk-a-junk?


6 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Prowl believes their ships will be on autopilot with a minimal crew.


PANEL THREE

An angle from behind Rattrap, looking up. Rhinox and Optimus Primal look down at him, each with a small smile on their face. Optimus Primal places a consoling hand on Rattrap’s shoulder.


7 RATTRAP

It ain’t too late to ask for a transfer, is it?


8 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Get strapped in.


PANEL FOUR

Optimus Primal walks out of the cockpit. Rattrap and Rhinox look slightly forlorn.


9 RATTRAP

We’re all gonna die.


10 RHINOX

Yep.


PAGE FIVE


PANEL ONE

A backdrop of swirling black and dark blue tones. It is the Void. In the foreground, the Vok Entity looks around, while Primus stands solemnly, saddened by their surroundings.


1 VOK ENTITY

We know this place.


2 PRIMUS

Yes. The irrevocable nothingness in the wake of Unicron’s other victories.


PANEL TWO

Primus looks to the Vok Entity, who stares out into the nothing.


3 RPIMUS

“That which does not become part of the one shall become void”.


4 PRIMUS

On one of your other visits to Earth, and in the guise of none other than Unicron, you threatened Optimus Primal with those very words.


5 VOK ENTITY

We sought perfection.


PANEL THREE

(Flashback) On an alien planet, The Swarm ravages the indigenous population, consuming them.


6 DIALOGUE PANEL (VOK ENTITY)

Our meeting with the Matrix revealed the cost of the Swarm’s destructive nature. We set about rectifying it.


PANEL FOUR

(Flashback) Optimus Primal and his Maximals engage Megatron and his Predacons around the Standing Stones.


7 DIALOGUE PANEL (PRIMUS)

And of the myriad of paths you could have taken, you chose the creation of new life.


PANEL FIVE

(Flashback) The second moon in orbit around the Earth has opened, revealing a weapon set to cleanse the planet of life. A tiny Stasis pod can be seen travelling up towards it.


8 DIALOGUE PANEL (PRIMUS)

You were unwavering in your quest -- willing to sacrifice that which you thought to have strayed from the desired path. But each time, in the aftermath of destruction, you created life once again.


9 DIALOGUE PANEL (PRIMUS)

in doing so, you demonstrated an understanding of the cycle -- of the two opposing forces and the balance that must exist between them.


PAGE SIX


PANEL ONE

Back in the Void, Primus gestures to the great expanse of nothing.


1 PRIMUS

I ask you now, staring into the Void -- do you see balance? Do you see perfection?


PANEL TWO

The same angle as the previous panel, but this time, the Vok Entity is looking up and around for the source of the dark voice. Primus’ head drops slightly.


2 DIALOGUE PANEL (UNICRON)

I do.


PANEL THREE

A serpentine ribbon of energy coils around Primus, like a pulsating, orange tongue made of flame. Primus looks greatly unamused and unthreatened.


3 UNICRON

How often we’ve danced this little dance…


PANEL FOUR

The coils now wrap around the Vok Entity, who looks much more concerned.


4 UNICRON

But never for an audience.


PANEL FIVE

The ‘head’ of the pulsating ribbon ‘looks’ at Primus, while still coiling around the Vok Entity.


5 UNICRON

This, Primus? This is your Xal?


PANEL SIX

The ‘head’ looks back to the Vok Entity.


6 UNICRON

Primus has, without doubt, told you of my misdeeds.


7 LINK PANEL (UNICON)

But have no doubt. Primus himself is not without blame.


8 PRIMUS

You will not twist this one as you have twisted others.


PAGE SEVEN


PANEL ONE

The ribbon coils up and down the body of the Vok Entity.


1 UNICRON

Did Primus mention that it was he who discovered how to move between realities? That he encouraged me to try?


PANEL TWO

The coiling mass seems to pulsate with anger.


2 UNICRON

That he watched on, silently, as I was stripped of function?


PANEL THREE

The coiling mass moves around the head of the Vok Entity, almost lovingly. Whispering sweet nothings into the Vok Entity’s ear.


3 UNICRON

Abandoned and left to die.


4 LINK PANEL (UNICRON)

Is this starting to sound familiar?


PANEL FOUR

Primus grabs hold of the coiling ribbon and hurls it away.


5 PRIMUS

Enough!


PANEL FIVE

The ribbon is unaffected and begins to form a more solid, bipedal form, holding a sword.


6 UNICRON

Violence, Primus? That’s unlike you. Destruction is not in your nature…


PANEL SIX

The form has become solid, as we have a close-up of Unicron’s eyes, looking evil.


7 UNICRON

But there is nothing else in mine...


PAGE EIGHT


PANEL ONE

Rattrap clings to the top of the top of the command chair on the bridge of the Autobot Shuttle. Optimus Primal is at the helm. He has a look of deep concentration on his face as he grips the controls tightly.


1 RATTRAP

All I’m sayin’ is why does it have to be our darkest hour? Why let it get that bad?


2 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Rattrap, now really isn’t the time.


PANEL TWO

Looking out of the bridge window, the sky is alight with explosions and laser fire as the Autobot Shuttle heads for Space. Cybertronian Empire landing craft are being chased by Maximal ships. It’s a hectic and dangerous environment outside.


3 RATTRAP

If it looks like it’s getting’ a little dim, why wait for it to get any darker before they use the Matrix?


PANEL THREE

Optimus Primal leans back in his seat slightly, relaxing after a tense few minutes.


4 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

We’ve broken the outer atmosphere. Are we still one piece?


PANEL FOUR

An external shot of the Autobot Shuttle as it moves out into space. All around the planet, Cybertronian Empire Battlecruisers sit in orbit and bombard the surface.


5 SILVERBOLT (OP)

By Primus!


PANEL FIVE

Inside the bridge, Cheetor and Silverbolt stand on either side of the command chair.


6 RATTRAP

Well don’t that just take the cheese.


7 SILVERBOLT

Suddenly our assignment doesn’t look so bad, does it, Rattrap?


8 CHEETOR

So far so-


PAGE NINE


PANEL ONE

The shuttle suddenly lurches. Optimus Primal clings to the controls. Rattrap clings to the top of the chair. Cheetor and Silverbolt are knocked off balance. The lights inside the bridge glow red in alarm.


1 SFX

GRRRRNNNNN


PANEL TWO

Rattrap points a finger straight at Cheetor.


2 RATTRAP

You just had to jinx it, didn’t ya, kid?


PANEL THREE

Optimus Primal looks up at Rattrap.


3 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

It was just some debris. The kind I asked you to keep an eye out for.


PANEL FOUR

Rhinox joins the others on the bridge.


4 RHINOX

There’s a mass of subspace traffic moving through a ship up ahead.


5 LINK PANEL (RHINOX)

If the automation systems were being controlled from anywhere, that’s our best bet.


6 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Good work.


PANEL FIVE

An external shot of the Autobot Shuttle, heading towards a Cybertronian Empire ship in the distance. Cybertron is still getting bombarded by other ships in orbit.


7 OPTIMUS PRIMAL (OP)

Alright, Maximals -- lock and load!


PAGE TEN


PANEL ONE

Magmatron walks forwards between the formed-up lines of a platoon of Predacon soldiers.


1 MAGMATRON

At the end of the Great War, our armies were betrayed and dismantled by those who commanded them, fearing the wrath of time upon their sparks. But they had forgotten one thing…


PANEL TWO

Magmatron arrives at the front of the platoon.


2 MAGMATRON

We are Predacons! We know no fear!


PANEL THREE

A close-up of a Predacons cocking their weapons.


3 SFX

CH-CHK


4 MAGMATRON (OP)

Today, we reform the lines.


5 MAGMATRON (OP)

Today, we take back our honour.


PANEL FOUR

Magmatron holds his sword aloft. In the distance, a squad of Cybertronian Empire troops march towards them, flanked by their landing craft.


6 MAGMATRON

Today, we carve our name into time’s very face!


PANEL FIVE

Magmatron charges towards the reader. The Predacons behind him charge forwards too.


7 MAGMATRON

We shall never be forgotten!


PAGE ELEVEN


PANEL ONE

In a hangar bay on the Cybertronian Empire ship, the Autobot shuttle has landed. Cheetor and Silverbolt guard the front and rear or the vessel. Blackarachnia and Rhinox are at the bottom of the gangway as Optimus Primal and Rattrap exit the shuttle.


1 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Alright, listen up. Rhinox, Rattrap -- you’re with me. We’ll head down, trying to make as much noise as we go, then double-back here, ready for departure.


PANEL TWO

Cheetor and Silverbolt join the group at the bottom of the gangway to receive instructions.


2 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Cheetor, Silverbolt -- get Blackarachnia to whatever control room you can find. We’ll try to give you as clear a run as possible.


PANEL THREE

Optimus Primal and Rhinox run off towards a doorway. Rattrap gives the reader a small shrug.


3 RATTRAP

I swear I saw him give Prime’s spark back, but sometimes I wonder…


4 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Let’s roll out!


PANEL FOUR

Blackarachnia looks to Silverbolt, who has transformed into Beast-Mode.


5 BLACKARACKNIA

It’ll be up to your nose to keep us safe, Bowser.


6 SILVERBOLT

Fear not, my love. My sensors have already calibrated to this strange new environment. Stay by me and I shall lead you safely to your prize.


PANEL FIVE

Cheetor, in Beast-Mode, heads for a different door. Silverbolt has his nose to the ground. Blackarachnia puts her hands on her hips in protest.


7 CHEETOR

We’ll be quicker on all-fours.


8 BLACKARACHNIA

Excuse me?


9 CHEETOR

Fours, eights, whatever. Let’s move.


PAGE TWELVE


PANEL ONE

Optimus Primal, Rhinox and Rattrap walk in formation down a corridor. The ship is showing signs of age, with wiring hanging out of the high ceiling. Rhinox and Rattrap are at the front, with Optimus Primal keeping guard at the rear. They have their weapons drawn and ready.


1 RATTRAP

So you and the Boss Monkey might have these guys covered, but what about me?


2 RHINOX

I once heard a story about Grimlock doing a number on Devastator.


3 LINK PANEL (RHINOX)

He went for the joints. Always a weaker spot on a combiner, but the principles are the same for all of us.


PANEL TWO

A close-up of Rhinox, looking stern.


4 RHINOX

Cut them off at the knees, then go in for the head.


PANEL THREE

Rhinox and Rattrap look down the corridor as a Cybertronian Empire troop steps around the corner and glares down at them.


5 RATTRAP

Ehh, care to demonstrate?


PANEL FOUR

Optimus Primal and Rattrap open fire as Rhinox charges forward, transforming into his rhino-mode.


6 RHINOX

Cover-fire!


7 RATTRAP

You got it.


8 SFX (BLASTERS)

KSHOO-KSHOO-KSHOO


PANEL FIVE

Rhinox smashes into the knee of the troop, who begins to fall sideways. Sparks fly from where Rhinox makes contact.


9 SFX

GRRRRN


10 RHINOX

Uuurghh…


PAGE THIRTEEN


PANEL ONE

An angle from above. Rhinox, in robot-mode, stands on the chest of the trooper who is lying on the ground. Rhinox is pointing a chain-gun at the troop’s head. The side of Rhinox’s beast-head on his back has been scrapped back to the metal, giving it a Terminator-esque look.


1 SFX (CHAINGUN SPINNING)

WRZZZZZ


PANEL TWO

An angle looking up. Rhinox is illuminated by the blasts coming out of the end of his chain-gun, but we can’t see the damage being inflicted to the troop. Rhinox has a severe look on his face, made eerier by the shadows being caused by the blaster fire.


2 SFX

GDGDGDGDGDGDGD


PANEL THREE

Rattrap and Optimus Primal both stare blankly at what is happening off panel.


3 RATTRAP

If we get outta this, remind me I owe Rhinox 50 Credits from a long way back.


4 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

So do I.


PANEL FOUR

Rhinox walks up, holding his head slightly, looking a little groggy from the impact.


5 RHINOX

Urgh. That hurt.


6 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

I’ll take the next one.


PANEL FIVE

Rhinox holds up his two chain-guns once again.


7 RHINOX

You said we were here to make some noise, so let’s rock.


PAGE FOURTEEN


PANEL ONE

Silverbolt still has his nose to the ground, but is holding a paw, giving a signal to stop. He is in front of a large doorway.


1 SFX (SNIFF)

FHH FHH


2 SILVERBOLT

If my nose is correct, and there’s any logic to the configuration of this vessel, I believe the bridge is behind this-


PANEL TWO

An angle from below Silverbolt, looking up. The doors have opened. An Empire Troop glares down at him.


3 SFX (DOORS OPENING0

KRA-SHH


4 SILVERBOLT

… door?


PANEL THREE

The same angle as the previous panel, but Blackarachnia has leapt up and latched on to the troop’s face. Cheetor is tearing at its throat. The troop stumbles backwards.


5 SFX

GRISH-GRASH


PANEL FOUR

Silverbolt, now in Robot-Mode, stands in the doorway and fires two wing missiles.


6 SFX

PFOO-PFOO


7 SILVERBOLT

Incoming!


PANEL FIVE

Blackarachnia and Cheetor leap away as Silverbolt’s missiles strike the troop in the face.


8 SFX

KOOOSH


PAGE FIFTEEN


PANEL ONE

Cheetor, firing at the troop, barks orders at Blackarachnia. She’s scaling a large terminal.


1 SFX (BLASTER FIRE)

KWOO-KWOO-KWOO


2 CHEETOR

Blackarachnia!


3 BLACKARACHNIA

I’m already on it.


PANEL TWO

Cheetor hits the comm-link on his chest.


4 SFX (COMM-LINK)

BWM


5 CHEETOR

Cheetor to Optimus. Come in, Big Bot.


6 COMM-LINK (OPTIMUS PRIMAL)

Arrgh… Go ahead, Cheetor.


PANEL THREE

Optimus Primal, Rhinox and Rattrap are taking shelter in a doorway. Rhinox fires up the corridor.


7 SFX

GDGDGDGDGD


8 COMM-LINK (CHEETOR)

Have I caught you at a bad time?


9 RATTRAP

A bad time?!


10 COMM-LINK (CHEETOR)

We found the bridge. Blackarachnia is weaving her magic so we should be out of here any-


PANEL FOUR

A shot looking down the corridor. Optimus Primal fires his back-mounted cannons.


11 SFX

KOO-KOOSH


12 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

No. Maintain control of the bridge. We’re on our way up.


13 COMM-LINK (CHEETOR)

Up?!


PANEL FIVE

An angle from beside Blackarachnia as she looks down to Cheetor and Silverbolt. A radar display is on the console next to her. All the dots are red.


14 BLACKARACHNIA

All Empire ships are now registering new targets on their scopes.


15 COMM-LINK (OPTIMUS PRIMAL)

Does that include this ship?


PAGE SIXTEEN


PANEL ONE

The same angle as the previous panel. The ship takes a hit and everyone is thrown off balance. All the lights on the bridge start to glow red in alarm.


1 SFX

GGGRRRRNNNNNN


2 COMM-LINK (OPTIMUS PRIMAL)

I’ll take that as a yes.


PANEL TWO

Cheetor’s brow is furrowed.


3 COMM-LINK (OPTIMUS PRIMAL)

They found the shuttle, so we’re going for Plan B.


4 CHEETOR

I didn’t know there was a Plan B.


5 COMM-LINK (OPTIMUS PRIMAL)

There isn’t.


PANEL THREE

As the ship takes another hit, Cheetor points out the windscreen to the planet below. Other Cybertronian Empire ships can be seen firing at each other. Silverbolt flies up to the controls.


6 SFX

GGGRRRRNNNNNN


7 CHEETOR

Bolt, take the helm. Point this ship at Cybertron and land it.


PANEL FOUR

Silverbolt looks at the controls. In the background, Cheetor and Blackarachnia are headed for the door.


8 SILVERBOLT

Propulsion systems are fading.


9 CHEETOR

Then crash-land it! We won’t survive another cycle up here!


PANEL FIVE

An angle looking down a long corridor. Optimus Primal, Rhinox and Rattrap (at the rear) are being chased by a Cybertronian Empire troop.


10 RATTRAP

Grab a hold a somethin’! This is really gonna suck.


PAGE SEVENTEEN


PANEL ONE

Rattrap throws two bombs at the window.


1 RATTRAP

Hehh…


PANEL TWO

The bombs stick to the window.


2 SFX

THKK


3 SFX

BEEP-BEEP


PANEL THREE

The window is blown out and everything begins to get sucked into space, including the trooper.


4 SFX

KA-SHOOOM


PANEL FOUR

The troop vanishes out the window as Rattrap makes a frantic lunge for the outstretched hand of Optimus Primal, who is hand in hand with Rhinox, who is holding onto the doorway.


PANEL FIVE

A very tight shot. Optimus Primal and Rattrap’s hands are centimetres apart.


PANEL SIX

An even tighter shot. Optimus Primal and Rattrap’s hands are millimetres apart.


PANEL SEVEN

The same tightness as the previous panel, but Rattrap’s hand has disappeared out of shot.


5 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

NO!


PAGE EIGHTEEN


PANEL ONE

Rattrap is terrified as he is sucked back towards the hole in the hull.


1 RATTRAP

Eeeeeeehhhhh!


PANEL TWO

Blackarachnia, in Spider-Mode, latches around Rattrap’s body.


2 BLACKARACHNIA

Gotcha.


3 RATTRAP

Hoo-hooo! Legs!


PANEL THREE

Cheetor, clinging to Rhinox’s back, holds on to Blackarachnia’s webbing with one hand. Optimus Primal smiles broadly.


4 OPTIMUS PRIMAL

Well, that’s just Prime!


PANEL FOUR

We see the back of Silverbolt, looking out of the bridge window. Cybertron is filling the window as the Empire ship enters the planet’s atmosphere.


PANEL FIVE (INSET PANEL)

An extreme close-up of Silverbolt’s face. He is very, very concerned and his ears have drooped.


PAGE NINETEEN


PANEL ONE

The lifeless bodies of the Tripredacus Council are crushed under a large, beastly foot.


1 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

The paths to ubiquity are well-trodden and paved in failure. Ours is no different. But the missteps of our former masters have provided us sure footing.


PANEL TWO

(Flashback) Jhiaxus is consumed by a dark, pulsating mass -- The Swarm.


2 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

Jhiaxus was consumed by his pursuit of order but devoured by chaos.


PANEL THREE

(Flashback) The Liege Maximo is torn apart by white lightning as his ascension fails.


3 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

The Liege Maximo would fall into nothing.


PANEL FOUR

Atop the Predacon Citadel Unicron cultists, kneeling in reverence, encircle a Transwarp Shunt device. The device is powering up.


4 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

Fortune would then deliver us to the very Pit itself, but unlike the untold number before us, this would not be our end, but the beginning of his.


PANEL FIVE

The shadow of the combined form of Tripredacus is cast over the landing pad of the Transwarp Shunt device.


5 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

Our race has no word for one that commands a god. But today, that will change.


6 DIALOGUE PANEL (TRIPREDACUS)

Today, that word will be…


PAGE TWENTY


PANEL ONE

Full-Page image. The full majesty of the combined Tripredacus body is revealed as it roars its name to the heavens. In the distance, Cybertron burns.


1 TRIPREDACUS

TRIPREDACUS!


--- END ISSUE #3 ---

The script for Issue #3 of Transformers: Deicide.

I first wrote this story back in 2014-2015, and pitched it to IDW as a 4-issue miniseries to celebrate the Beast Wars 20th Anniversary in 2016.

I reworked the story and pitched it again this year, but IDW already had plans for a Beast Wars story to celebrate the 25th Anniversary underway.

So rather than it sitting in the bottom draw gathering dust, here it is for you to enjoy.

Be sure to read the accompanying 4-page story: Gathering Darkness
