-So this comic stars Scarlett of all characters. Since she only ever used the same Kai Blast as Star, I wanted to give her something unique and that became her being able to use all Elements.
-This first panel is the only time Blade appears in this comic. I wanted to split up Blade and W. to see what I could do with them in different groups.
-This comic is full of attack bits that takes advantage of the play set and it's features. I think these make for good action, though the motion blurs are still a bit heavier than they should be.
-Well, Bush's dingy is back. Also like Clamcake taking none of W's shit.
-I honestly don't know where some of W's random lines came from. I do know The Todd is a Scrubs reference.
-I'm amazed I got any useable pictures of that jail cell. It's in a really cramped place.
-This cat fight is so dumb and fun. I can't remember if this was my idea or Star's to have Scarlett and Yuna fight over different versions of the same man. This rivaly becomes the core of Scarlett's and Yuna's interacts from now on.
-The topless joke is me thinking "why wouldn't a Sith lord do that?" It's awkward but this isn't as bad as the last time there was a topless woman in the comic.
-...There's that Smurf again!...Oh, it actually has a point here for a joke. Okay.
-Pirates vs Sith!...Yeah, it's one sided.
-Kai Blast: Beautiful Glacial Caress. Scarlett gets an unique Kai Blast here in the form of an Ice attack. It freezes areas of the body for a little bit. The notes I have on this Kai Blast read like something Star wrote. It might've been his idea and I might've copied the text into my notes.
-Hey, Springer does a thing. That poor seashell headed guy gets the crap beat out of him in this. Loses an arm and now Springer Hearyarms him.
-I think Clamcake might use a Flash Step here. Either that or he's just jumping way further then Springer.
-Once again using features of the play set. This play set was great for action set pieces. You probably won't see this set again as I sold this play set recently. Great play set, I just didn't have space for it anymore.
-Yep, original timeline Jack Sparrow is still golden so Springer wasted a Paradox Chip.
Next Time: A main comic without W, more negative hunting, and more character development for a few characters.

-Cold open: Yoda's a force ghost with a physical form. Also Clamcake's fist is some sort of deal. Like Archdemon's Unicron attack, I hope to explain this later.
-Once I has made it clear that both timelines existed, I wanted to do some catching up with what was happening in the origin timeline. I created a new Kai Blast for Wolfangel just to do this.
-Once again, really wish I had gone with "pop" and not "poof." It's the little things somethings that get me.
-There's a 4th wall break that actually makes since within the context of the comic.
-I just noticed Gnome Prime's with them after the paradox. Eh, it's an illusion anyways.
-Those symbols were just a bunch of characters I'd like to one day use...and Eek the Cat.
-Scarlett is kicking Clinton in the crotch in one panel.
-This is the proper introdution to the Axalon Underground forum characters. They mainly appear in Filler Funnies.
-One of the members, Dreadnought (I think he renamed himself Nexus Zero later), had his own fictional country, so I'm making reference to that here. I have a guest written comic crediting Nexus Zero as well that explains these events. I'll post it over the weekend.
-Icefang and Starshooter are husband and wife if I'm remembering right. The events of how they got the Autobots to help were told in a text story I'm not 100% sure I still have. I do at least have a poster for it.
-The other two were suppose to get stories as well, but I never got around to them.
-I'm amazied a nuclear joke hadn't happened yet. We're like 20+ issues in.
-So why Icefang? Well, I had a contest. Whoever guessed how many DVDs I owned at the time would join the team in the main comic and get a Kai Blast.
-Roadblock is because I wanted one of my fav Joes in the comic again and Wall-E because I wanted another droid.
-And now for the scene I created to make it things are about to get a little darker and some grit to.
-So Cobra Commander is taking Nega-W's place and we have the new Master of Earth, Krang. I probably should've had a short scene of him being appointed earlier in the comic. Oh well, here he is.
-OH MY GOD! It's Serpentor! Who would've ever guessed it was him?!
-From context, I hope you all gathered that during the fall of Cobra, Cobra Commander tried to kill Serpentor and outed Destro once captured. this is their revenge.
-I know this is needlessly violent, but I wanted the see if I could do some of this stuff. The Destro part is probably a bit much, but that hand Destro had just looked like he could tear into someone like that.
-He's NOT Serpentor! HA! Who is this guy then? Keep reading.
-This is the first major death. There are more coming, though I don't think any of them are quite this graphic.
-And to defuse that scene, maybe even undercut it, we are called Bush Raiders again.
-Din Crystal! That's what the Red Stone was called in Agent X's comic.
-And ending on Negatives of Agent X and Curse from the Botcon arc. I'm not 100% why I added them, but I know a little sometime happens with them.
NEXT Time: Over the weekend will be posting some of the spin offs I mentioned earlier and maybe a filler funny or 2. Starting on Monday we will start Arc 2, which is only 2 comics. On Wednesday I'll start Arc 3, which is 3 comics (including the short side story). After that we hit Arc 4, which is the final arc. I maybe put posting arc 4 on hold for a bit while I'm still editing and making those last 2 ATTFs to sync the numbers. We;ll see when we get there.

-For more on Osteogenesis Imperfecta www.oif.org/site/PageServer
-Time for an origin story of sorts for Blade. This had been stewing for a long time. I needed to explain Command Line, resolve that one off line in the Botcon arc, and retcon to get what I wanted the character to be from the start.
-You might be wondering why Blade wasn't in a wheelchair from the beginning. The answer is simple: Before the movie Avatar, there were almost no wheelchair options in this scale. The chair here is from some anime figurine of a little girl, so only child sized figures can fit in it.
-Cold Open: I did make a minor edit here. The origin says Type III OI, but the classifications have changed over the yesrs (possibly even before this was made) so I decided to simplify it to not have that.
-Starting with this comic, the star shaped TAOWAR logo is used and the panel has a blue background. I think it pixelated worse over the years, but I'm still happy to have color here.
-Oh wow, I totally forgot the segway from the cold open to Springer saying the same line. I think that might've working better if the title pnael was moved before the cold open or after the Springer panel.
-Serpentor's "run for your lives" line is from Doctor Who. *whistles nonchalantly*
-I wanted to switch bodies on Agent X anf Curse Hawkwind to get them out of those 5" ToyBiz toys, so I had them switch bodies with their timeline negatives here to do that while also destroying the TRU. This means no more crossing over.
-I try hard these days to hide the stands, but for Firefly is kind of works in this panel as his name appears below him like he's a monster of the week.
-Oh, Roger grabbed Jack Sparrow. I totally forgot about that.
-The other monster nametag of the week is Cobra The Enemy.
-Another drawn set here, this time a street are night. I got some good use out of this. Also, Night Ops Humvee is rad. Glad I got to use it somewhere.
-Hey look, a Transformer that isn't a summon or Springer. I needed Blade alone for the rest of this arc and Blackout was a good chance to give Icefang a minor fight.
-One of my other favorite play sets is this Spawn Alley Way set. Highly recommended if you like the 3.75"-4.25" scale.
-I wonder if I still have that I Want You card. I think it was a JoeCon ad (and erased whatever the name was)
-New Character: Raider. My very first "custom" toy was a Lego made wheelchair Transformer that GI Joe figures could sit in. This was the origns of Raider. I still have it to, it just wasn't super useful for what I needed in the comic.
-The Raider custom here is make of TF parts from Beast Machines and Universe. It can't transform, so I made it so Raider's alt mode would cast off like a pretender shell or something. It doesn't really add up in the comic, but at the time it was the best way to make this work.
-The plane crash line is stipud. I kind of wish I hadn't put it in there.
-I fully admit this origin is a little fan fic-y, but I think that might've been the point. Do all the tropes. Plane crash, best friend is a Transformer, reenacting a song from Aladdin, and probably the most Mary Sue moment in the comic (we'll get to that).
-Summon: Who's the coolest shark summon around? Sky-Byte! This one is literally just Sky-Byte. I sadly haven't used him outside this attack. It's worth noting that all of Nega-Gnome's summons are sharks.
-New Character: Nega-Gnome. I decided to make one timeline negative a good guy, but since it was a negative of Blade I wanted to make sure he was ridiculously silly. I may have mentioned it in the past but my real world nickname is gnome. I saw a chance to bring it into the comic using the negative and took it. If this had been planned, I probably wouldn't have called Gnome Prime that.
-Nega-Gnome also talks similar to Claw Jaw. Because it's fun.
-Oh hey, my real name. You may have noticed it on a few Filler Funnies. I like it when the villain calmly say heroes' real names like it's no big deal.
-The Mary Sue moment. Hey guys, my OC is so cool, his best friend is a Transformer and he grew up with the Ninja Turtles. Ugh. In comic, this mainly exists to explain why Blade knew the Turtles to begin with and how he got the safe house (AKA the 2003 TMNT lair).
-New character: Gravel. Gravel is an in-joke. You see, I have an electric wheelchair. It sinks in gravel. Gravel is my enemy. It was either that or stairs. As for why he's trying to kill Blade, no one knows, yet.
-Gravel's custom is a General Tragg from TMNT painted from top to bottom and made to look as frightening as I could. If you're wondering the red is not blood, it's lava.
Next Time: The origin story continues and lots of fighting.

Meant to post this earlier today, but got side tracked by trying to find a missing prop I need for one single panel.
-No cold open on this one. If I remember right, these two were written as one comic, but due to the text dump in the first half I broke it up.
-Upgraded Roadblock here in the same way as Baroness. Was never happy wih the early modern Joes of him.
-Thief's gang returns in the same way as Krang. That means Scar Forte is probably around here somewhere to.
-Empp knows about THAT scene and wants to punish Blade for THAT scene. Honestly, Ceus should let him.
-Thief also gets her 3rd toy here. Wanted a more armored design and the ability to use all the Microman hands from the first figure.
-I had a lot of fun with the DE-MOS characters in this arc.
-Really wanted to change "master" to "lord" to lessen the name confusion, but I told myself not not to change thingslike this.
-Who could Serpentor possibly be? *whistles nonchalantly*
-And "Billy" even gtot upgraded.
-I wonder if anyone saw the whip gag coming.
-Tuskie is a fan of Dinobot's Golden Disc scene.
-I like this scene between Tuskie and Destro. Seriously, I'm a little impressed with my past self right now. Scenes like this was why I didn't want to start over.
-Don't worry, Springer is still alive. We'll see him again soon.
-I just now realized Empp calls the darkest skinned Turtle a "boy." If Empp comes off racist, it's not intentional. He's just an asshole. This is another line I'd edit if I was allowing myself to.
-I like how relaxed Yoda looks in this scene.
-More explanation on Seal/Release as it plays a part in all of this, though maybe not in the way you might think.
-To make sure Thief isn't too Overpowered, this plan could only work with Yoda and other Jedi spirits helping.
-Tuskie has a new Darth Vader cape.
-Both of the W. scenes in this and the last arc date the comic so bad. Now he's watching Smallville.
Next Time: A short comic (literally one picture file) letting some side characters take the spotlight. It is important to the over arcing story though.

-Title song is Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins. I think this one's pretty obvious.
-Added Jackal's name to the narration. He's named later, but in a way that assumes you know his name already. This helps clear that up.
-Hey look, Nega-Scarlett's Night Creeper friend is back and...and...what are you doing with that sword?...Yeah, It's implied that Night Creeper kills Nega-Scarlett for not wanting to fight. However, I intentionally cut away from this scene quickly because I wanted to leave it open ended. I wrote 2 longer scenes here. One where she dies and one where they run away together. I'm unlikely to follow up on this scene, so pick whichever one you like more.
-Since I already had a Scarlett vs. Yuna earlier in the season, the battle is skipped in favor of the stuff elsewhere.
-Kai Blasts: Aqua Dream and Pleasure Shot. I honestly don't know where these came from beyond thinking way too much about what kind of Kai Blast a femme fatale and a Water user like Baroness would use. I'm not sure, but I think I may have based it on the power Guldo from the Ginyu Force had. If so, Baroness is a the sexy Guldo. Enjoy that image when you try the sleep tonight.
-Kai Blast: Super Spin. Agent X was a Sonic fan so he got a useless Sonic spin attack.
-Clamcake offering to help Scarlett is a bit ackward. There's a TV in the cell, that's how they are suppose to be talking to each other.
-Changed one of GP's lines here. Original was "Yes. They will not survive the night without it." That was TOO mysterious. Thankfully there's a pay off to this before the end of this comic.
-I hope you can hear the sarcasm in Hanz's line.
-The wheelchair figurine from Blade's backstory is back. When did she get that? Well, I plan to explain that in a flash back later. In fact, I just finished the pages of that scene.
-So this is technically Judgement's issue. Yeah, he's not dead, just dying. He's mute so I used him as mainly a named extra until now. Here, the scenes he's in is told from his point of view so you can get to know the character a little better...before I kill him off at the end of the issue. Trust be told, Judgement was a test run for this kind of darker tone. I honestly like the end result. I just wish I had done a little more with him before this, .
-Kai Blast: Kamikaze. Exactly what you think it is. Judgement kills himself by going boom. Also added the Ka-Blam sound. Not sure why it wasn't there to begin with.
-As of this writing the battlefield is never revisited. Judgement is dead, Baroness is most likely dead, Agent X and Curse are maybe dead. Like Nega-Scarlett, unless they show up again, choose whichever one you like...except Judgement. He is dead.
-Changed Blade's line about making a joke. I frankly just didn't like the line. The original was "Geezs, you make one lesbian joke over a half dead woman and they take it the wrong way." It's basically the same except he mentions it was a lesbian joke because Scarlett and Yuna shtick was cat fighting. I feel just wasn't needed because any joke would probably get Blade kicked out.
-Scar is Jack from Blade's backstory, how's that for a reveal?
NEXT TIME: In the first page formatted issue of TAOWAR, Star the Wanderer and Darth Nova meet for the first time while Yoda and Darth Malak duel in Time Storm Part III: The Final Countdown.

Had a busy day and almost forgot to post. This week another 5 Filler Funnies, 26-30. 26 is an Animated joke, 27 is a guest comic by Star the Wanderer (and very heavy on the forum characters), 28 is based on a true story, I believe 29 was based on a time with Sorus was hosting the images of the comic, and 30 is currently super uncomfortable to read if you keep up with news right now (comics like this made me glad I dated them). Enjoy.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, I have an update on the end of TAOWAR. First, to make it easier to tell which I'm talking about, the titles of the final two parts of Time Storm are titled Reckless Fire and Time's Scar.
Reckless Fire is the Archangel, Wolfangel, and Roz issue. I currently have it written, found the toy I was needing, and began photographing/editing it. It will be about 15 or so pages once finished.
Time's Scar, the finale, is 95% complete. I just keep debating the final scene so that's all that's left unfinished. Also, I plan to move a page for it to Reckless Fire and might see if there's a little more I can move. Right now, it's at 40 pages. Yes, I said 40.
Posted 28 June 2018 - 09:10 AM
How often we who watched Animated had wished Optimus Prime would give Sentinel the suckerpunch he deserved...
Posted 05 July 2018 - 08:30 AM
Yeah, this area of comics was when I was trying to be raunchy to less than desired effect. Here's another round of 5, 36-40. 2-3 fall into that raunchy comedy, though I think the Wii-PO one is still works. I also still like #40 as it's the first appearance of Salesman Megatron. Enjoy.
In general I think the quality of jokes goes up after this batch. Less forum characters and less attempts at raunchy comedy. There's a few I'm really looking forward to reposting soon to.
