"Aspects of Evil" really needed a conclusion.

Your comics are always interesting. Animated is always fun, but this has to be my favorite one you've done to-date.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG. SOMEbot just learned him some manners. Blang fool. Very magnificently done. Short, sweet, and to the VERY sharp point. Kudos.

Really an excellent Mosaic. The best application of Unicron's scale I have ever seen, and a nice Green Lantern/Alan Moore homage to boot !

I don't think unicron's eye could be that big, that it would take months to walk across?

Friggin' planet. Eye the size of a country.

i dont get the whole planet transforming into a robot, or a city transforming into a robot because metroplex would still be a ant on unicron.

The light sources and the coloring on the second panel is all over the place! The writing stands up well, though. It will be (and seems to already have been) well received.

Very nice, reminds me of the old UK Marvel TF comics perfectly. :)

A clever connection of two characters worthy of the boundless imagination of their creator, mr Furman.

Wow this is a really good one. I like how you drew The Fallen, and how his throne looks like him from ROTF.

Interesting. Good on you for remembering the Student, though I'm not sure he was ever properly a disciple of the Matrix, or if he was just a dude who hung around Rodimus Prime's hospital bed.

I really do like how Dreamwave The Fallen is sitting on Revenge of the Fallen The Fallen. I like the art in general. The linework reminds me of the better linework in the old comics - freer and not as clunky as a lot of the linework in modern Transformers comics. Also, a more generous use of ink to indicate shadows. The colours are good, too!

I do sort of think that saying that the Matrix is nothing and that Unicron is out there, somewhere, cheapens the sacrifice of Rodimus Prime, who lost his youth, lost his friends, lost his /body/ at times when Unicron possessed him, and was forced to suffer accelerated ageing, all to keep Unicron caged within the Matrix. It's like... he went through all that hardship and suffering, and you're saying it was for nothing?

Unless, of course, the Student is on Unicron's eye, but Unicron is still inside the Matrix, so the Student is just really tiny, and The Fallen is somewhat lying.

While the message in the end is compelling, I am not sure it particularly fits into the theme about lessons about /EVIL/. This is more a nihilistic message than an evil message, per se.
