New comic up!
The Autobot slaughter continues! Enjoy!

The reference to the little blurb about Ratchet in panel 2 is referring to perhaps everyone's favourite Ratchet fight scene of him vs. Thundercracker.
For a rehash of what that was, go here.
There's just something so funny about a robot ambulance drop kicking someone in the groin.
Oh yeah, and there's a new comic up.

Boy is September ever going by fast.
I always thought this part in the first episode was hilarious, before they're attacked by the Decepticons and crash land on earth. Well.. maybe besides the fact that even though right now they're still transforming into their futuristic Cybertron car selves yet look exactly the same as they will in 4 million years....
It's that Jazz is going along driving then suddenly he gets thrown out of the chair. But Optimus yells, "JAZZ!" a good 3 seconds before anything ever shakes on screen and Jazz is thrown. So I figure maybe instead of concern, Prime is actually just angry at Jazz's driving, then when Jazz gets thrown he find the opportunity to take the wheel.

New comic's up!
Bluestreak has a unique and weird colour pattern, which I've read (I'm going to call them 'suspected truths' because I don't remember where I read them) where because Bluestreak and Prowl were basically the same toy, Bluestreak was recoloured to distinguish himself. He's basically greyscale, but then he's got bright red in the legs, mid section and top part of the helmet.
I remember first seeing Bluestreak in the cartoons - besides going, "Wow, that guy's obnoxious" it was also, "Wow, that guy's colour blind."

*Self pity post immiment*
Yes, I'm a little under the weather at the moment, which in fact has no bearing on the site or the comics, but I can't really think of any other 'news' at the moment.
I am feeling much better today though than I was yesterday, yesterday I felt like Optimus Prime had run me over consecutively, and then unleashed Roller to finish the job.
(He.. didn't finish the job, as you can see I'm still here and functioning!)
New comic up tomorrow, talk to you guys then!

New comic up!
Uh... other than that I don't really know if I have any interesting news for now, it being early Monday morning and I'm more than half asleep. I'll think of something... keep checking! heh heh.

Friday, whoo! Friday not only heralds the start of a nice weekend, but it's also when I have a lot of time to draw and work on the site.
My thought for the day is about Hound, from G1 seasons 1 and 2. I've checked fan art, the new DW and IDW comics I have, and poor Hound just simply does not have the presence I feel he deserves. I have two theories, the first being: He is very difficult to draw. His arms start very low on his body (You can't quite tell in this screenshot but it's true. He has a gigantic radar/missile thing on his shoulder, and the front of his jeep is a nightmare. It's not really so much difficulty to draw as it is time consuming. The said artist must think to themselves... "Ok.. I can take twice as long to draw Hound in this scene, or I can go draw Jazz. Or Prowl, or Bumblebee, or Ratchet and Ironhide. Or you can cop out altogether and have Mirage in 'invisible form'.
My second theory is poor Hound was tarnished for life with an unfortunate scene in the second episode of the series when he tries to help Spike from drowning. Then a million ytmnds came out and Hound's reputation was forever ruined. Could this also be why Spike's vehicle transformer of choice changed from Hound to Bumblebee?
So poor Hound, I salute you! You don't deserve this. I will try and use you in my comics whenever I can, even when I can be drawing Bluestreak to my heart's content.

New comic is up!
In case you're wondering, yes, these upcoming comics are part of a story arc I'm creating. Is it silly? Yes.... yes it is. I've always loved comics and thought, well... if you really want to see something, then try it yourself!
(The creator of Comics in Disguise has been legally advised to tell you NOT to try it yourself)

Well back to the grind of another work week. I hope everybody had a good weekend!
Sometimes I wonder about what would happen if the Autobots got stuck mid transform. That seems to be a quick fix for repairing.. but what happens if Optimus Prime got stuck halfway? Wouldn't that sort of make repairing him a little more complicated?
September 8th , 2006
It's Friday again, yay! Time to start working on some more comics for the new week ahead.
Poor Soundwave. He looks like he's having a bad day.
Everything is almost ready, just waiting on the forum. Soon the site will be 'officially' set to launch, launch as in, I'm going to start telling more people about it and see what happens. Megatron has started getting some hatemail! He wants me to let you guys know how angry it makes him. Keep up the good work!
September 7th , 2006
I just have to say I have so much fun working on this site, I hope you're enjoying what's on it too!
The forum is nearly completed, and then the links will be complete!
...All is going according to plan... mwa ha ha ha ha ha h-

New comic up! More news coming tomorrow morning.. er.. when it actually IS September 6th
September 5th , 2006
Mondays after a long weekend... Blargh!
I hope everyone reading this had a good weekend.
For site updates, the Decepticons roster is up. The Autobots seem a little more difficult in describing.
An important note should be that the descriptions on the site are influenced by the characters as they were on the show, but also how they appear in the comics, which for some characters can be drastically different, especially considering the various published comics and their unique storylines.
Again... send the hatemail to Megatron. He told me he hasn't gotten any yet.
September 2nd , 2006
Technically it's September 2nd as it's 1am. So it's early... very early! After analyzing the statistics for this site and starting to look at it as something I could be both proud AND ashamed of, I've decided to upgrade some changes. The comics are of course, the main focus and that will never change, but I'm going to try adding in a forum, as some of the people I've talked to regarding the site seem to think that might help build more of a community.
....or look pathetic if no one joins! But that will be up to me of course. I hope you're enjoying the site, and I'm always very open to suggestions on how to make things better. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org! ...Send hatemail to email@example.com
September 1st , 2006
New comic up today! Also, it's the 1st of September. I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll be continuing updates to the site all weekend long, and hopefully getting a lot more drawing done.
