NOTES

Unlettered art.

For the first time, the main characters of this chapter appear in their cybertronian alt modes (both based on Don Figueroa's designs).

The Propaganda Symbol, featured in all the related secret cybernet files, will of course become the Decepticon symbol. Its origins will be explained in SoD: Ratbat.

Who is the main author of the propaganda speeches? We challenge you to find him out among the most prominent Decepticons, by analyzing the subtext!

Read the entire Jetfire/Grimlock chapter.

The Propaganda Manifesto? That wouldn't make the Cybertronians reading/hearing the speech suspect that they are being manipulated at all, XD -- I think a name that embodies a certain virtue would have made for a better manifesto title. To me, it's like calling the Communist Manifesto the Revolutionary Socialist Manifesto -- the latter name explains what the material REALLY is, but if you're trying to get people to join a movement, you would try to give it a less conspicuous title that presented a seemingly-new idea that would attract people; the 'Equality' Manifesto would have made sense for Communist manifesto writers, for example.
But that's just my beef on the name; the actual speech itself is brilliant! It plays on generic ideals and faults that encompass the passions of many in order to draw more Cybertronians into the movement, deliberately leaving out the explanation of how they are going to accomplish any of that, since the means are likely less glorious than the ends.
Jetfire was colored and drawn splendidly -- I had an impulse to duck just from looking at him. :O Haha, great job!
