Original lineart.

Click on the hyperlink for the burning sky texture in panel 2.

Panels from 2 to 6 take place during the Civil War, after the end of The War Within: The Age Of Wrath and the Tyrest Agreement (see Spotlight: Ultra Magnus and SoD: Magnus).

We finally got to mention Bumblebee, who's nowhere to be seen in the whole Seeds Of Deception saga (for now! Look out for Magnificent Crisis!)

Finally, Octane gets other mechs to beg him for fuel: it's not exactly how it was described in his G1 profile... but the spirit is the same. Could we call this story Spotlight: Octane?

The mech in panel 4 is Tyrest, as seen in The Last Stand Of The Wreckers.
His face is covered by a faceplate that reflects the scene he's looking at (namely, Perceptor talking to Octane).

This story is Prequel #1 (of 3) to the main event of the saga, The Drought: page 1, 2, 3.
Read (or re-read) it for more information about Moon Epsilon, Perceptor, Fistfight and the true meaning of the Quark Gel!

Things to come:
Prequel #2, "Moonlighting", will reveal the fate of Moon Epsilon. Starring Fistfight and Blitzwing!
Prequel #3, "Chargin' Throu", will focus on the secret story of Charger and Firebeast. Special guest: the shadow of Unicron!

Be here in 7 days for another story-- SoD Ratbat: All My Sins Remembered!


Pages: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5.

Damn, Octane is one twisted spawn of a glitch...
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
We just need to find out WHO destroyed Moon Epsilon, now =D
Canalus's avatar
Haha, I'm eager to get to that, too!

Loving the story and the implications it brings! :clap:

One thing---what's that (or which part of anatomy) on panel 4?!
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
It's unclear, I'm afraid, but it's Tyrest face (now the Comments Section has a note about this as well).
saganich's avatar
Yup, Ibai figured it out below, and I positioned him within the room ;p
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Because it was based on HIS original panel (from The Drought part 3). Full circle!!
Canalus's avatar
I'm not sure either, but I'd say it's Tyrest, with his face hidden by a glass mask similar to Omega Supreme's...
saganich's avatar
Hm, may be right!
And judging from the reflection on it, looking at a mirror which is standing precisely on the spot where we're observing panel 3 from!. :blush:

Canalus's avatar
Yep, that's exactly what made me suspicious!
multi-comics's avatar
HAHA! THAT WAS GREAT, HE'S smarter than swindle, i like him

Thanks! Glad that our version of Octane worked.

Hmm, a Swindle/Octane special... tempting!
