That's a bit lovely! And I loved Dreadwind back in the Marvel UK days... hope he's still as miserable!

Any chance of any leftover copies? :wink:

Unfortunately my supplies are very limited, so I doubt that there will be any leftover copies. But don't worry, because after the convention I'm planning on uploading the whole thing so that everyone can read and enjoy it!

And for those who are able to make it to Botcon, here's a simple guide on how to get a free copy (click the thumbnail for the full pic):

Nice!

See you there!

Yo Logan, I read it on the plane back, and I just gotta say-- I seriously enjoyed the crap out of it! The tone and execution were superb and the art team were well on the ball!

I'll be keeping this book with my other TF Spotlights. :)

Thanks again for going to the lengths of printing 'em and giving 'em out at Botcon! Was great hangin' out with you too.

Thanks, man! It was great hanging out with you guys too! I would've missed out on so much and had not nearly as amazing of a Botcon experience if I'd ended up just being off by myself. But as a result, I don't think I'll ever be able to look at that picture of Jazz in your sig without feeling that something is... missing.

Thank you! Those kinds of compliments really mean a lot!

Anyway, I've had the full issue uploaded to DA for a little while now, but I think it's high time I start posting it at some of the TF fan sites. So if you'll excuse me for a moment while I get the links all ready...

OH MY GOSH!!!! This is one of the best written "limelight"(spotlight) pieces i've read, and I guess it's classed fan-fiction. This needs to be published!!!

Great work by all! All the pieces come together and this is an engaging (taking me away from work) comic that turned a character I knew a little about but cared even less into a classic Decepticon that I want to see more of (and more pranks too!). Great work!

That was absolutely awesome!

I loved the little arm wrestle between Grimlock and Brawn.

Wow, that was excellent. Art and coloring was very good and a style to my liking. The story, however, was very engaging and moved along well with no lulls. Just enough dialogue to learn about the characters but not too wordy anywhere. A good balance.

Little easter eggs here and there. I always like to see Motormaster, even if only briefly. That was some good use of many un-used characters. Heck, you have even made the Firecons interesting! I used to have Darkwing and Dreadwind 20 years ago but this is the first time I wish I still had them.

Speaking of having, I would like to have this comic in hand. Excellent.
