NOTES

The second prequel story to our cornerstone miniseries The Drought is here!

Strongly recommended, but not mandatory (althought it will be satisfactory), is the read of The Cosmic Freight Train (that is, our first prequel to The Drought).

Once again, we are going to answer some key questions by focusing on one of the main characters of The Drought.
Just as in The Cosmic Freight Train the character in question was Octane, in Moonlighting it's Fistfight's turn.
(Who will be the main character of the third prequel? Perceptor or Charger?)

The on-screen images in panel 1 are from The Cosmic Freight Train and The Drought (Part 1).

Once again, Shockwave is performing theoretical and experimental works on Energon.
For more about this, see Spotlight: Shockwave. For more about Fistfight's involvement in this, see Trusted Assistant.

The Black Market rumors are obviously a reference to Octane's secret activities.

"Uncharismatic Soundwave" is a reference to TFTM86.

It is known that Shockwave was Jhiaxus' understudy, but Seeds of Deception revealed more about their relationship: it seems that Shockwave was also Jhiaxus' student.

More about Fistfight being a Targetmaster weapon in Overkilled!.

Extra note by Ibai for the color art: finding a color that makes blue/ purple 'Cons stand against an equally Decepticon-ish background is harder than expected!

Become a fan of Fistfight on Facebook!

Also, not Transformers-related, but from the same artist of Moonlighting, the weekly Weregun saga!.

Unlettered art bonus!

I always enjoy these comics you guys put out. You always explore the "gray spots" on the cannon material and it's wonderfully written and drawn out. :)
+1 fav. :iconfavplz:

Thank you! That's just our main goal: sometimes, it looks like the stories write themselves, starting from some clever hints that Furman seeded here and there... did he plan this? @_@
ArwingPilot114's avatar
It must be so! :) Furman has planned this all along!

Enjoying Fistfight cheeking off Shockwave! He'll get a slap for that! :)

He always gets away with that (see the Trusted Assistant piece for his masterpiece!).
