Is this Superlink related? O.O Looks cool anyway!

Uhm, not meant to be Superlink related: maybe it goes the other way around, since Superlink inherited G1 concepts ^^
(Of course Superlink toys are more complex!)

One of the best Mosaics yet. Love the colours and dynamic look! Well written, too.

I'm just giving you guys grief, nice continuation of the Mosaic.

But we couldn't agree more, this is literally a god from the machine (and a Saint Seiya tribute, so it's even more fitting).

*looks at Slamdance*

That's quite the travel sized god you got there.

Also, I like the incoming message from the big giant head. :)

The god would be Omega :)

Hah! And here I thought it was a god made from supergluing two tiny robots into making a less tiny robot.

Real nice here, subtle nods to previous stories while standing alone as a Mosaic. The dialogue and explanations here well done and I love the art and coloring here. Squawkbox looks great and I really like the combining sequence of GrandSlam and Raindance.
Faved.

Thanks! Is it the first time we manage to be subtle? That's a great result (even though these scripts are quite old, in comparison to others).

It's the right balance of words and images, to me anyway. ;)

I love Marco's design for Omega, and overall :thumbsup: for this Mosaic!

was it deliberate to make sqwalktalk look like armada sideways?
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
I think it was casual, just like the apparent Superlink reference.

Awesome!
They say that making the middle part of a trilogy is toughest, it has no beginning and no end.

...unless you know the works, like these guys in the credits above! :w00t:
In such cases, the middle part often becomes the strongest.

VERY Nice! :clap:

Thanks!
It must be the combination of journalistic memories and recurring cliffhanger :D

:? I dont get it...
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Oh noes, how's that!
Please let's talk about this :)
Swift117's avatar
im trying to keep tracks with the different comics but obviously im phailed... :( so i need explanations like a newbie despite being a fan for +20 yrs.

So if you can help me about youre most welcome.

Ok! In Part 1 ("Dark Auspices"), the Autobot Cassettes were chasing the Decepticon Cassettes, in the sewers.
The time is the beginning of the Civil War, on Cybertron (the continuity is "The War Within", which you should really read! It's quite enjoyable!)

The characters are all classic G1 toys: Slamdance and Squawktalk.

The attempted murder on Omega Supreme is an event we made up for our stories.
We needed to explain why Omega Supreme is not featured in "The War Within".

Finally, Omega Supreme plays a role in the government because we picked this idea from "Spotlight: Optimus Prime".

Um, this should be all... I hope it is enough!
