Short Story Micromanagement


Lineart by Rem Aileen Roca :iconfoxelie17:

Colors by 110 :iconastro-ho:

Script and lettering by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck:

Plot by Christian Ludwig :iconclu-art:

Edits by Gregory Donaldson :iconnovastorm73:

SoD project by :iconi-sithlord:


Originally published as a Mosaic.

Original lineart.

"Micromanagement" is a SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave tie-in, keeping almost the same narrative structure (upper half of the page belongs to Shockwave; lower half belongs to Soundwave).

Shockwave inherited a lot of data from his mentor Jhiaxus. His relationship was hinted for the first time in SoD: Omega Supreme.

More about the Liberation Missions and the Arena in the aforementioned chapters of SoD.

Special guest: Fistfight.

The characters on the screens of panel 1 are Doublecross (of course) and Motormaster.

Shockwave is browsing personality programming files, just like a fanboy would browse tech specs on Transformers toy boxes :D

Searchlight is based on his appearance in Stormbringer.

Soundwave is assisted by his minions Beastbox, Ravage, Rumble and Buzzsaw. Their specs are collected in the SoD: Profiles.

Is this event the origin of Doublecross' splitted personality?

Once again, a hint of racism toward the "Primitives" (see Short Story: Secret Shame).

Discussion threads: Tfw2005, Seibertron, IDW forum.


More art in Characters Art Gallery and Universe (Profiles + Tech Specs).
Read the SoD comics: Short Stories, 1: Omega Supreme, 3: Jetfire/Grimlock, 5: Magnus, 6: Shockwave/Soundwave, 7: Sentinel Prime, 8: Blaster, 9: Starscream, Constant Moons: Paradise Lost, Special Story: The Drought.

Thank you for the beautiful art (which fans loved, as you have seen!).
Sadly, the story was considered too unusual to be appreciated ^^'

Heh, I know, I knew I expect I read some of their comments out there that they kinda complain of continuity and stuff. But I don't mind, at least they say my art was okay. xD

I hope I can collaborate with you someday and I swear I'll make my art good enough. Actually that lineart wasn't good at that time you know. >_> But the third panel was my most personal favorite. ^^ Aww and you forgot to mention Buzzsaw/Laserbeak's name there too. xD

Buzzsaw fixed, thanks.
And, yes, we hope that too: any time you want to draw again for the project, just drop us a note, thanks!

Allthough it is a very logical story. What happens to Mechs that reveal the secrets that should be left un-revealed?

Well, they get lobotomized :)
