Nice Furmanism. ;)


Actually though BW didn't quit either.

Slugslinger was in an unrelated side story with less characterization in the Summer Special too, I don't quite count it as him - his face wasn't even drawn with the lens over one eye.


There might be Energon etc. stories coming back when the kids who watched it get to a certain age - ya think.

That still counts as part of the Dreamwave Energon comics. It was still him, art mistake or not.

I sort of just wanted to clarify though if someone is trying to get hard copy comics
I think they would have to ask for the 'Summer Special' or "20th Anniversary Transformers Summer Special"
from a retailer to acquire the story.

On the internet it's probably different the story might be
grouped with the other Energon material in downloads.

But I only now my real copy.

I meant continuity-wise. It's part of the Dreamwave Armada/Energon comics continuity. The Slugslinger that appeared in that is the same person as the Slugslinger from the Dreamwave Energon comics.

I hope so! I could use some Cybertron ones, maybe showing them on the new planets!

ok sorry
I was partly thinking of the aspect of somebody wanting to find the comic the other story is in when I first mentioned it but I definitely made the point unclear.
But on the other hand the way he acts , talks , (as well as the look) kinda takes a bit of a drastic change from anything he's like in the ongoing, I was hinting at my dislike for him by comparison in the Summer Special story
it doesn't quite seem to add up to following the same characterization if the way he seemed in ongoing actually interested somebody.

Since I was talking about both things I didn't know which you were responding to :oops:

Unrelated was entirely the wrong word I used but it has a notice that it's 'outside continuity' on the first page before the Summer story starts, and there's no event in the ongoing or the story finishing outlines (you directed me to :smile: :smile: ) that shows why HE is in the different situation he is in during the Summer Special story. So I'm not sure how the story relates.


It's all Illustrations of Energon Slugslinger , just with his character being played in different ways.

But I'm sorry for mixing fact and impressions too closely together.

I'd be interested to see if it seems the same to you after you have seen them.
