Peter's design, actually, that Ibai heavily used for the actual 22-pages Ratbat story :)

I like it, not a lot's done with Mirage. Art's pretty good too. Bluestreak makes an excellent choice for discussing Mirage's past loyalties; Cliffjumper would have been too cliche.

Thank you, JZ: Bluestreak was a deliberate choice indeed!

Good work! Interesting history. Mirage's story is one that needs to be explored more.

Thank you. We were starting to feel fairly tired about the whole "he's a traitor because one G1 episode said so, let's punch him" routine ;)

Yeah! I am becoming tired of most of the cliches of both comics and anime regarding characterization. Sometimes everything is too non-dimensional. I like characters to be a bit ambiguous. To have a bit of mystery to themselves too keep them interesting and keep up guessing what's up with s/he. That approach to Mirage taken here sounds more than interesting and I see it as the story of a rich guy that got involved with the wrong people trying to gain their friendship or prove something with less than pleasing results and now he's doing anything he can to redeem himself. Keep up the good job! :)

Awesome set up of Mirage's shady past before the great civil war. 8-)

This was meant tobe just a spin off of the larger Ratbat 22-pages comic, but it became very representative of the goals of our Seeds Of Deception fancomic... the machinations of the future Decepticons during the golden age, the focus on relatively underused characters, the nod to G1 with new bits of info on history/personality of the characters.
Like the Spotlight comics by Furman!

This is our last Mosaic, but it's only the beginning of Ratbat's saga.

I never noticed that! And could that be Movie Megatron beside him?

As for the rest of the piece, pretty good! I like the art, and the story's pretty nifty.

That's the Ancient Prime by Felipe (and you should browse youe whole gallery while you're at it!).
It's part of our Seeds Of Deception fancomic project: a lost fragment of the Cybertronian past, probably related to The Thirteen and their greatest battle.
