Oh Primus, Jazz is dancing again. Everyone just look away.

Only a couple days of May left! How time flies! For those of you wondering, comic submissions for our CiD 2 year anniversary are due July 1st (so you still have an entire month).
Today's comic is something I've always personally wanted to do. If you notice in Jazz's bio it alludes to his Autobot charms with tha' ladies. Also I wanted to lighten the mood a little after Prime's return, since the fembots have now returned as well!
Falling Autobot Week
Robots in Disguise Week
Transformers Kool-Aid Week
Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots Week

It feels like it's been a while since I updated and it's good to finally have some time for drawing again.
Today we have Prowl's internal struggle. And internal dialogue... really, it's just Prowl talking to himself until the very last panels.
It's nice in a way, to be dealing in this manner with an Autobot instead of the Decepticons, which we've been looking at for the last story arc mostly. The Autobots are generally good, compassionate and heroic. It's nice to finally get into that mind set and see exactly how you can push that and to what ends.
I hope you're enjoying the new story arc and oh yeah... Prime returns to Earth! ..And that means the fembots are also in town.

An early update this week! It seems I won't be home at all tomorrow evening due to two consecutive sporting events after work so there is no time to finish a comic or post. So luckily for us, Megatron has come through again and made a hilariously topical comic for our current story arc.

And the old forums are back up! (although I've locked them, becuase you can look, but you really shouldn't post on the old ones) Ironically enough it was Unicron who brought them back to life, rather than eating them and destroying them terribly. You can reach them here. I will also be posting about it in the forums. If you know someone who needs the link go ahead and pass it along.
Thank you again Unicron, you're a life saver.
In other news, I am preparing for CiD's 2nd birthday and have posted about it in the forums, which you can reach here. I encourage everyone to participate! You can enter by sending me an email with your fan art/fic, etc. To firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the comic! Things are starting to heat up...

We're still working on recovering forum posts, don't worry, it's just a matter of getting them on to a server that will display them, the database is fine.
So because I had no time really to do a 'proper' comic I decided to actually do the comic I was going to, just in sketchy b/w pre-coloured and pre-inked. That's what the comics look like before I refine it to post. I also decided to 'milk' the style a little so I made the Devastator sketch banner.
There's nothing like a new storyline continued from the last. You get to make time jumps and assumptions and you're ready to go. This comic goes back to an earlier one where Soundwave is communicating with Megatron and Megatron tells him to come and rescue him. You can find that comic here.
One thing I always like doing is dropping hints of future storylines along the way, I try to never leave anything hanging.

As far as forum news goes: We're working on retrieving past posts, especially for the RP forum. They still exist on my server, the problem is you can't access the pages because my new server doesn't seem to 'support' the old forum. Me and Megatron are working on it, I think we've come up with a solution, we'll just need some time. Everything is still there, so don't worry we haven't lost anything.
In comic related news, a new forum is up and a new storyline will be underway. The Dedication storyline officially comes to an end tonight, with Springer and Thundercracker wrapping it all up. I wanted to bring back elements from the first Dedication comic to tie it into the end.
And oh yes- things are going to get a lot worse. For both sides. We will definitely be seeing more of the Autobots in the next story.

Hey guys, sorry the forums are down at the moment, I had to upgrade my hosting account and switch it from Windows to Linux, so I figured the forums would go down while this was in progress. I might take a look at fixing the old forum briefly so I won't feel so rushed trying to get the new forum up, which isn't really ready to begin with (no usernames, etc.)
We'll see what happens. We're much closer than we were a week ago, that's for sure.
Thanks for your patience.

Thank you very much to Crogbot for donating his time this week for today's comic update. I've been busy working on our new forums and I think I finally figured it out! It'll take a bit longer to organize and finish everything but we're on our way!
I promise I'll try and make the transition as painless(?) as possible heh heh.
See you all Monday!

Zombicons! Based of course on the 'human' board game of Zombies, which is what we actually played. Everything in the comics is based on exactly what happened... especially a zombie happy Jazz that would not stop plaguing the entire board and I think racked up a grand total of 48 zombies all mushed into the hospital.
The player names have changed... the situation was real!
And yes, we really did play for about 6 hours, maybe more... we ended at around 2am after we started at about 10:30.
Zombicons - Annoy your friends!

Well we did it! We raised sufficient funds to buy ourselves our new web forum. ...Now the tricky part of installing it... While I wrestle with that there's going to be some 'interesting' additions to the web site as a whole and probably some mini in-between comics in the middle of it. Thanks again for everyone that donated and as Megatron said in his post - if you want him to draw you a Megatron-style cartoon pic just send him an email here.
Also... Tomorrow (the 2nd) is a bit of a special day.. if you're curious you can check the news archives for the May 2007 issue to find out why... All I'm going to hint at is to check the Decepticontributions forum, heh heh.
