Well I'm officially back! Staggered in after over 25 hours of being up consecutively from being in airports and on planes. The trip was really great, in case you were ever curious. Extremely intense and tiring, but great. Saw some really cool things over in Europe that was definitely worth the 10+ hour tours we were on.
Now I am extremely jet lagged and rather sleepy. But here's the comic update! Since the movie is coming out next week, we (Megs and myself) thought we'd do a few relating to the upcoming movie before it comes out.
And a huge thanks to Megatron for updating while I was gone! He did a fantastic job and the comics are hilarious. There shall be more, I know I will call on his services again. It sure is good to be back. Now to see if I can say the same thing tomorrow at work.

Hey everyone, I'm back from my vacation and it's good to be home! Not that I didn't have a good time touring Yellowstone and the Black Hills, mind you, but if there's any sure way to grow extremely irritated with someone you care about, it's a road trip. I'm sure if Megatron had a mother, she wouldn't drive erratically and then complain incessantly about his driving when it was his turn... And then point out really obvious traffic signs as if there was some chance he wouldn't notice a giant road sign saying SPEED LIMIT 45 himself. But anyway, I digress.
Everyone loves girl robots, right? Male fans do, female fans do, and I sure do (except for Arcee). So today's comic is a nod to the rare Transformer females. ...I feel for them, I really do.

And here you have it, folks! The very first "all Megatron" update. ...I apologize in advance if the subject matter is a bit esoteric, but since Ratchet has been doing a work-inspired theme in the comics lately, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do one inspired by my own workplace. Unfortunately my job is a bit less... Um... Prestigious... But I think it's also something with which many people can sympathize. I'm sure the real Megatron could.
As for thursday's update, don't be naughty and scroll down until the 21st! It's there now so you won't suffer from withdrawal while Ratchet and I are both away- Now you'll only suffer from exposure to terrible art! There will be another update as usual for next monday, when I return. Then possibly a "Ratchet" update on the following thursday, depending... Otherwise you'll be stuck with me again. Haha.
So anyway, I decided to leave you guys with a screencap I could live with for a whole week. Everyone loves Astrotrain! ...Or is it just me?

Well, here it is... The first official comic update by me, "Megatron". This comic was put together by good old "Ratchet", but the Autobot portions were inked and coloured by me. ...Uh, but anything that looks crappy was "Ratchet".
You know I'm not really one for internet monikers, hence the quotation marks around the names all the time. But I find it funny, every time I type it like that I get a mental image of Megatron himself doing the finger gesture for quotation marks. If I could draw worth a damn, that would be my next comic. I'll get Ratchet on that maybe.
Speaking of which, on monday you're going to be "treated" to a "comic" created entirely by yours truly. Then there won't be an update on the thursday because I'll be away... Yes, I took my vacation at the same time as "Ratchet" did. I'm going on a road trip! But don't worry, I'll make it up to you guys somehow. Maybe a bonus comic on monday, before I go. Sound good? It better!
...By the way, my roommate came in here in the middle of the update, started talking, then said "Oh, am I interrupting?" and when I said "yes", she continued talking. So I lost my train of thought and I'm pretty sure I broke the site. I hope I can fix it all before "Ratchet" gets back... Otherwise, please mourn my passing.

Greetings fellow robot fans... This is "Megatron" speaking, since "Ratchet" is now far, far away from this hot and humid death trap of a city we live in. ...My air conditioner is broken, thanks for asking.
No comic update until thursday as usual, but I thought I'd give this updating thing a try to make sure I don't break the site before the comic is due. Luckily, "Ratchet" was prepared and sent me a mostly finished comic to finish up and post. By "mostly finished", what I mean is formatted, with all the text and everything living happily in place, but uninked and uncoloured and in a massive .psd file that took my medieval computer about 10 minutes to open before it crashed altogether and I had to repeat the process. Well, I think it's MOSTLY cooperating now. You'll see how it looks in a couple days.
In the meantime feel free to keep me entertained by sending email . There's a 90% chance you'll get a sarcastic reply! With odds like that, who could resist?

Well, today I leave officially for my two and a half week holiday. Believe me when I say, it is well deserved. Megatron will be updating the site in my absence. It just occured to me that I'm the only one of my friends that uses an Autobot name.... Hmmm... I better be careful from now on!
June 7th , 2007
Hooray! For once I updated before midnight, which has always been my goal. (Otherwise I get really tired... and the last couple of updates have even been past 1am)
Well first the bad news... my hockey team lost the Stanley Cup finals. And boy did they lose bad. But hey... they're still my team and I still think they did pretty damn good for what they accomplished this year. Only one team can win. (There can be only ooonnneee)
Next, the good news. It seems my best bud Megatron is going to update the site for me while I'm on vacation. This means there will be regular updates going up, so huge thanks to Megs!
June 4th , 2007
Hmmm... no real news to divulge today, except that it's a new month! I shall be going on vacation soon myself, June 11th to be exact. There will be a comic update probably on that Sunday, then a special screen going up Monday to let everyone know I am on vacation and no, the comic is not on hiatus or anything.
Anyhow, I'm going to go drag myself into bed. Go Mondays and another work week! (And extra frantic this week to get all my work done)
Also, my boss actually has told me "Everybody is replaceable!" to my face - I dunno if she really means it or it came out wrong, but I've always found it hilarious. (And disturbing)
