NOTES

Originally published as a Mosaic.

From the same artist/writer, an ongoing weekly series: Arcee In Wonderland.

Crasher is a notorious Female Gobot, recycled here in a genderless Cybertronian form.

Panel 7 is a nod to the movie "8 Miles" (starring controversial singer Eminem).

BT stands for BatteTrap. This is the early drone version, as designed by Jhiaxus.

His pal is, of course, the Flywheels Drone (later version).

Do Transformers have "orgies" like organic creatures? Of course not. They "abuse" of their bodies/metaprocessor in different ways, as the "unstable isotope" should suggest.

The "orgies" word was removed from the Mosaic version of the story. It could be considered unappropriate for a toy property (well, as long as you haven't seen RotF or TFTM07).

Pentaenergon is a cybertronian drug, used by some Stunticons (SoD: Magnus).

The idea that "unstable isotopes" may be used by Transformers to alter perceptions (and induce a state of exhilaration) was first introduced by Simon Furman in All Hail Megatron. (We suppose that IDW simply asked for "Transformers getting drunk", and Furman rewrote the idea in a more alien/cybernetic fashion).

"Empty" comes from the classic G1 Marvel comics by Bob Budiansky (see for instance issue US #17 "TheSmelting Pool!").

The evil scientist is Jhiaxus.

The sinister machinery is based on the soul-extracting device seen in tv series V (2009).

Did Jhiaxus remove Crasher's voicebox because he was a loudmouth cackler like its GoBot counterpart? :D

Fracture is a recent Repaint, meant to be a nod to Crasher.

Read more stories from the same age and see the amazing cover in Special Story: The Evil That Mechs Do.
