THE TRANSFORMERS: SEEDS OF DECEPTION
STARSCREAM
ACT 2


PREV < Page 7 (of 22) > NEXT

Art by Tomoko :iconsakuranez:

Story by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck: and Peter Istyle :iconi-sithlord:

Edits by J.Z. Belexes :iconjzlobo:


NOTES

Original art.

After the spaceship, here is another tribute to Andrew Wildman and his great G1 Marvel run: Starscream's relaxed pose, reminiscent of Grimlock in the classic G1 Marvel US #79.

Already heard of planet S'imon? You should, since it was mentioned in Short Story: The Shape Of Things To Come.

Starscream's eye in panel 3 is a not to the eye design for the Transformers in the recent movies: TFTM07 and RotF.

More art by Tomoko, more Kup and more nods to classic Transformers in Short Story: Remembrances (with exclusive variant art!).

Next: after many other missions, the Liberation Epoch is over and Starscream is back on Cybertron, where he works as a... policemech?!
The life of science felons like Scorponok and irresponsible industrialists like Ratbat has just gotten harder. Or is it?


Read the whole SoD: Starscream (so far).

That's a story I really enjoy, but it seems forgotten. Such a pity.
Wish, I can read more.

Thank you!
There is an act 3 which has been completely drawn, but the color artists are being late...
It's an overall issue of the whole series: we currently can't find artists we used to do!

This is a great comic so far. This page just shows what a dirty player Starscream is in this little "game". So evil, even as a scientist.

Great comic ! Awesome art and story. :heart:

I love seeing Starscream as a dangerous, highly intelligent and clever manipulator, plotter and liar (not only, to be honest...but mostly ;)). I already have read far too much fanfictions with him being a laughing stock, a "sextoy" or a weak and angsty jerk, etc. etc...and Im sick and tired of it.

Hence, Im very glad (and thankful) for every story (comic or fanfiction) which shows his real "potential" resp. his true being...You guys did a very good job !

Thank you so much!
We couldn't agree more about how the "real" Starscream should be portrayed.
After all, he may have some comical moments, but he did survive everything life threw at him. One doesn't become a survivor if one doesn't have the right stuff: and the "qualities" and skills are all there for everyone to see.
Our main models are the War Within one (which was a bit unlucky, but always managed to get out alive) and the Animated one: an ironic, "self-aware" character who's never the real victim of a joke.
And of course the G1 character: do you remember that incredible episode "Auto Berserk"? In just 20 minutes, Starscream was cast off the Decepticons, took control of Red Alert, conquered a highly secure Autobot bunker and went very close to destroying Megatron. Talk about personality!
Also, the S3 "ghost" and the Beast Wars cameo were greats!
Well, I'm ranting now, but we really love the clever incarnations of Starscream throughout all the ages and we hope to deliver an Act 3 in 2012, with the Starscream/Scorponok/Ratbat triangle ;)

This is a really well written story. It seems Starscream was 'born' without scruples! Maybe that explains everything LOL!

Haha, thanks! That was exactly our goal: each bit of his personal story will show the emergence of the main traits of his personality :)
Of course, he will learn to control and keep them at bay (sort of).

Wow, I love your work throughly. The art is so stunning, and the characters portrayal is amazing :heart:
It's funny to see Starscream like this, before his immense ego got crippled by Megatron. Poor dear :giggle:

Starscream's ego will never be crippled! :)
We have more chapters in store for him, and you can't imagine what he's going to do when Megatron emerges XD

Heh I just noticed that ship is the same class as one of the ones Grimlock stole from the Cons back in the old 90's TF comics.

Great comic and absolutly Amazing Artwork.

Yes, it comes from G1 Marvel US #79.
Also, Starscream's pose on the seat vaguely reflect Grimlock's in the same issue :)
