NICE!! Like the Call of Cthulu inspired Mosaics, the art matches the dialogue and setting wonderfully. Waiting for the next bit.
What could POSSIBLY go wrong with trying to summon forth the half-dead tortured essences of sparks into a vessel whose strength is on par with Optimus Prime?

...*facepalm* Oh, this can't end well.

Thanks, but we're going in a slightly different direction: Hot Rod won't be used as a vessel :)

S'all cool stuff - I'm particularly digging the 'is it paint or marker pens?' stuff going on in the art.

I can honestly say some of the most fun days I've had lately have been spent sat in front of Photoshop!

I'm addicted to textuires and gradients now. I've started to see them behind my eyelids at night...

We should admit: we have a problem!

Say - is it just me, or does finding new Photoshop brushes turn out to be a major obssession for EVERYBODY who uses it?

Ops, sorry, I got it now: you mean in panel 3.
This is Sunbow cartoon continuity: for now, Nebulan and Transformer do not merge completely, and maintain some individuality traits in their relationship.

In robot mode, Vorath is Mindwipe's head. But when Mindwipe turns into bat, Vorath is supposedly free to roam.
More or less like the Autobot Headmasters, when they turn into vehicles.

Think of it in the horror movie analogy. The ghosts need a certain type of host-body to return, and whilst Prime (cf old and experienced wizard). would be ideal, he's too strong. So they're targetting the younger, less experienced host-body Hot Rod (young apprentice)

"Lord of Kobol"?
MY GOD ... It's a Battlestar Galactica crossover!!


I'm intrigued by the story...

Just a nod... can you find two more of them, in panels 3 and 4? :)
The idea is that Nebulos could be a lost Colony, given their issues with AIs and robots.

Well "airelon" sounds like "Carilon" from Classic Battlestar...

And it's a variant name for Aerilon (Ithink it's the italian version) :)

Because Hot Rod was a Matrix bearer, and has an affinity for it. Hence his transformation into Rodimus Prime when he was bestowed with the Matrix.
