Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"

In Flanders Fields - We take a deep look into the world of Transformers comic book releases from IDW Publishing. This episode's focus is all on More Than Meets The Eye issue number 53, with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al going page by page through the book. This episode will completely "spoil" this issue, and many plot points in the greater IDW Transformers story arc, for readers that have not caught up to this point in the story. Speculation abounds along the way, with several stops to look at where the series has been and where it might be going. This is a special episode of the show in a slightly shorter time format, so tune in as the team analyzes and ponders the goings on with the crew of the Lost Light.

More Than Meets The Eye - Greetings Seibertronian beings, and welcome to another thrilling and enthralling visitation of the talent behind the IDW Publishing Transformers production, as we're till slim on the ground in terms of new comics this month!

Making his mark a very long time ago in the current Transformers mythos, he's become a fan-favourite, he is responsible for many tears, many crowd shots, many pairings and ships for the fandom; he is the hands behind death, love, stars and returns. Ladies and gentlebots: Alex Milne!

Transformers: Deviations' Subtle Indictment

Transformers Deviation Reviewed - The Transformers: Deviations one-shot came out this week and I was extremely excited about this book. I love the 1986 The Transformers: The Movie with a passion, and any addition to its lore, imagery, and self-contained universe is something I jump at with fervor.
