Short Story: Rich And Spoiled


Lineart by Felipe Suanes :iconbodoking:

Colors by Sara Guyon-Gellin :iconalteride: and Brenden Oshima :iconultimateoshima:

Story, script and lettering by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck:

Edits by Gregory Donaldson :iconnovastorm73:

Special thanks to Ibai Canales :iconcanalus: and Seb :icondivljasvinja:

SoD project by Peter Istyle :iconi-sithlord:


The resort is named 'The Circle' because at the time Franco was reading Gail Simone's Wonder Woman books.

As anybody knows, "turbofoxes" are mysteriously legendary creatures mentioned in Mirage's G1 Marvel Profile. Who has ever seen one of them?
(Before the new MTMTE comic book series by James Roberts, that is!)

Who is the Prime featured in the bas-relief? What is he doing with the Matrix Case? Is this just fiction or actual history?
Only time will tell: in the meantime, you may want to look at the full size version!

This story is a tie in to page9 of SoD: Ratbat.

The one listening to Ratbat in panel 2 is Blast Off, who happens to be another snobbish Cybertronian.

The Autobase, with its War Within: The Dark Ages mood, hosts: Red Alert, Trailbreaker, Bluestreak, Blaster and Skids.
Text ballons cover the background characteres, but they can be clearly seen in the original art (coming soon).

Ratbat's debatable business proposal are featured in Short Story: I'm Taking A Train and in Special Story: The Cosmic Freight Train.

More comics by Franco, Brenden and Ibai: G1: And Gods will Walk The Earth, page 1 and page 2.

Originally published as a Transformers: Mosaic piece.

So Franco came up with a Circle for rich and spoiled Cybertronians independently of the canon Circle?

Also, I am of the conviction that there is a turbofox as far back as in Marvel US #17, on the very first page, in the lower right corner (which i used for this pic).

Yes, Franco's Circle was created before that one.

We'll check out that page :D

An amazing comic! I always imagine Ratbat as the cute little bat from the series but in this he looks scary... especially when he smiles!!!

Thanks! Don't miss the main Ratbat chapter in which he is even scarier :)

this is really cool like the way you've delved into Mirage's past personality as one of cybertrons elitists.
