Great picture! I love the way you always make the transformers look like the huge, powerful beings they're supposed to be.

I must admit I haven't read the Autocracy series yet. I hope there is a print run of it though. I always prefer to have a hard copy, never been a fan of 'download only'.

Just read Autocracy 4 and HAD to, was COMPELLED to let you know" You, sir, create some of the greatest TF comics I have ever read. Before CHAOS, TF seemed to be mandering and I was losing interest. Autocracy is Awesome and I don't think anyone other than yourself could pull off the look.

Thanks so much, my friend. That really is very rewarding to hear. I'm glad you're really enjoying Autocracy, it's been a dream getting to draw an epic TF story like that.

Keep letting me know what you think of the series as it continues!

I'm starting to get that there is a parallel between Pax (Prime) and Hot Rod. As young bots, they had a lot in common. The difference seems to be the strength of Pax's convictions are what makes him a Prime. It's nice to see how Pax developed into Prime. I also really like what is going on with Megatron. I had stopped reading the comics about a year ago because I couldn't find anything interesting about Megatron's 'just destroy everything' motivation. Fitting a Magneto - Professor X relationship (or something similar) is VERY interesting in comparison.

Going web-only on this story seems like a pilot for a possible web-to-trade paperback model that is in the works. If the stories are good, I think it will work. Since this one is good, I'd be likely to buy it if I saw it on the shelf.

How is the weekly production schedule for your painting style? Very grueling or just grueling? Hopefully they let you work ahead a bit before they released the first one. Hopefully.

Great insights, Paul. Totally with you on those.

And yeah, it's funny you point out the Hot Rod/Pax relationship having similarities..in the very next issue, you'll see the two interact and it's an arc that continues through the storyline. You really called that one.

And with Megatron- the writers definitely wanted to show that he had a very real reason to rise up against the current ruling government. He's not just a black and white villain..he's got beliefs, even if he's willing to do some terrible things to get there.

And the schedule is intense, but doable. I was able to have a lot of leeway..I was over halfway finished with the series before the first issue came out, so that was a nice little head start. And it's been really rewarding to see people's comments and thoughts now that the issues are coming out. Really keeps me pumped to keep working on it.
