Megatron: Exile pt 5 END by EnvySkort Megatron: Exile pt 5 END by EnvySkort
So in doing this comic, I realized a few things.

1) I don't think there was any real way to rework Megs into a good-guy.  There just isn't.  This is a guy who built his entire life around getting back at an oppressive system and the complacent folks who allowed it to continue, so he's never not going to believe that his cause (at least initially) was just.

2) I really freaking love drawing space.  Space is awesome.  But then I watch Star Trek and it reminds me that space is essentially Australia in that everything is trying to kill you.

3) My tablet is a damn trooper for putting up with all the work I put into this.  This is easily the most detail I've done in a digitally colored comic yet, so I'm pretty proud of myself and consider this an accomplishment.

So there you have it.  My take on Megs' thoughts after Predacons Rising.

Altogether, this is actually a 10-page comic; each of the Megatron: Exile deviations are actually two 8 1/2 by 11 pages put together in Photoshop Elements.  As per usual, pages were drawn in pencil and inked with PITT pens, after which they were scanned and colored digitally in Photoshop Elements 9. 

Welp.  My job is done here.  Now it's time to go and watch me some Rescue Bots.

Rofl. Not everything in Australia is trying to kill you... just the majority of it. A very interesting comic. I cant wait to see what you do next.

Maybe you should make a sequel to this where someone as tormented like Arcee or even Knockout comes to bring him out of his exile and explains to him that he has a chance to redeem himself by helping rebuild their broken home. I mean, if Megatron does return in the new series (the sequel to Transformers Prime), we would need to know the possibilities on how he returned and you are a great writer so I believe your story would be most accurate and enchanting.

Just read through all five pages and I think this is beautiful, Megatron was my favorite character in TFP he was so well written, his body language was astounding, and just the way he looked told you how threatening he could really be. This is for sure in character for him, I would imagine after the hell Unicron put him through he would be looking back on his mistakes, rethinking about everything he did and the impact it had on those around him and his home world alike. I enjoyed this little five page comic very much, well done :)

I just also wanted to quickly add that I think the opening music for Elfen Lied is very befitting for this mini-series, I don't know why to me it just fits with the tone

This comic reminds me of this part in the Watchmen comic when Dr.Manhattan flees to Mars after his press fall out and has his whole monologue on fate that can essentially be summarized to, "it's always too late. Always has been, always will be, too late."


awesome comic with deep dialogue :) thanks.

Primus, this is both beautiful and poignant. If I were to have made this, I probably would have cried as I wrote "Megatron's" dialogue.
