Podcast Maximus Episode 49 - Introduction to Revisitation

January 8, 2021

It was the winter of 2005.


We say a sad goodbye to stalwart host and inspiration Marian and limp on with a discussion of
Stuart’s new mega-project: Revisitation. He is going to review every issue of the original IDW Transformers comics, starting with Infiltration in the bewilderingly distant past of 2005. Has the pitch of ‘The Ultimates, but Transformers’ aged well? How does this old relaunch compare to any of the several other relaunches we have lived through since?

Podcast Maximus Episode 48 - Holiday Special 2020 featuring the Transformer Family survey results

December 29, 2020

Thanks for traveling with me.
As 2020 finally falls we spend a little time discussing which Transformers make the best friends, spouses, mentors or enemies. Thanks to a reader survey we have plenty to work with, ranging from naked thirst, heartfelt vulnerability and irreverent daydreams.  

Big thank you to everyone who filled out our survey and to everyone for watching and supporting over the years.
