Merry Christmas from Comics in Disguise! (One day early of course... but close enough!) I never did anything special for Christmas last year and I had sort of regretted it, but this year I was able to get something ready. The comic is really out of the current timeline, but it fits into it as well.
Originally I was trying to think of something 'cute' to do, or funny, as I've seen on other sites or with other artwork. But I wanted to do something a little different. Like Ironhide, I have those I care about far away, even during the holiday season and I miss them very much. This comic is dedicated to you.

Wow, only 5 days left until Christmas! I suppose you could say today's comic is sort of a tease, since I don't plan on returning to the story until after Christmas and possibly the New Year. (The comic will keep updating as normal, don't worry, but with seasonal shorts)
I was inspired by the Mosaic I did earlier that had a decently positive response. I also decided to try and follow my own advice and write out a script, especially if there's flashbacks/internal dialogue. I tried to have the flash back done in a different 'sketchy style'. Instead of carefully inking the panels, I just drew it all in pen and scanned that. (Colouring was a challenge) I'm not sure if it works or not, I'll let you guys decide. I am calling the new story arc dedication, it will feature Soundwave and Thundercracker (and of course their accessories, so the title has a double meaning for each character)
See you Monday! Happy Holidays to all!

Whew... What a crazy Sunday that was. The site was having some pretty... serious trouble, thank Primus localized to the forums. It's given me some food for thought... we'll see if anything comes from my fevered dreams.
Today's comic also marks the end of the little mini story arc of Prime and introducing his return to Earth with... the fembots! This should create lots of hilarious mayhem.

To everyone that is trying to get into the forums, they are down temporarily, I am currently trying to fix them without losing any data... wish me luck! I'll try and get them back up tonight and post as usual.
I apologize for the inconvenience.

Has Ratchet gone insane? Another comic update? On a Friday? And it's about three times as long as other updates?
In truth I was building this comic this week in case for some reason the Mosaic couldn't go up on Wednesday - just as a back up. I could've waited and posted it Monday, but I want to move the story along just as much as everyone else.
So enjoy! A nice long update right before the weekend!

Whoa, another update already!? Well, the Mosaic just got posted for today (Wednesday) and I sort of knew a few days in advance so I got everything all ready. (Especially since I had posted ahead by accident... sorry Mosaic guys)
I'm really honoured to be a part of the project, I think the organizers are great and loyal fans who take time (as the rest of us do) out of our lives and put it towards something we all love.
I always felt Thundercracker got shafted in the comics/series and Ratchet's remarks in the IDW Infiltration comic calling him 'just a grunt'. I felt was undeserved. In truth he has a complicated character, but it's hard to touch on it in a single page... even if it is incredibly long. But hey... that's CiD style right? Enjoy :)

December is plodding along.. only a few weeks left until Christmas... which reminds me I gotta get out there and start shopping. For...
myself friends and family.
Forum members will recognize today's comic because I've been going on about it in the forums already. It always amazed me how quickly Smokescreen was able to agree to a complete evil stranger to wager Optimus Prime and the other Autobots for gambling money and then lose everything even after he had more than enough. Well, let that be a lesson, kids!
I also thought it would be funny to have only Smokescreen be the Autobot that saw Devcon, as they were together in the cartoon.

As you can see, another great Megatron comic is up today! I was incredibly pressed for time this week so as always, Megs is up and ready with a comic. It's hilarious too, because this happens all the time where the two of us live. (And Soundwave too) Just when you think the train is FINALLY going to go by (sometimes they can be up to a couple miles in length) then they stop. And hit reverse >_<

Well as the comic suggests, tomorrow is my bday! If you'd like to see the card Megatron got me last year (because it's hilarious) just check out last year's December news. You can also see it here.
The comic for today works both as well.. a comic update, and the Decepticon contribution thread. You guys should check it out, there's always some really funny and well drawn stuff in there.
