The Underbase Classics Episode 13: Peace

Not really a standard Underbase review but just a few team-members nattering for a few hours... folks somehow manage to cover a Wreckers-featured 1989 annual story, in the middle of it all. Along the way, we talk comics, families, politics, films and fallen celebrities.

Looking to start back on a few more reviews soon, hopefully with a bit more of our regular structure.

The Underbase reviews Timelines Issue 10

Adam starts the show by explaining last weeks news and our announcement, in more detail, to clarify certain aspects and calm some of you wonderfull folk down.

Then jump to 10:15 and botcon!...well...as much as it ever is.

Technically, this is a botcon review... but since the guys are on the second half of a lengthy recording session (and not on a comic they particularly enjoy) the conversation takes it's inevitable spin off onto wrestling, DC comics, penguin species, Jedi and other, more serious, issues... some of this has been left to the end, so keep listening!
Explicit Language...what did you expect!

The Underbase Reviews: Transformers GI Joe issue 7

Joe comes to the rescue of a clearly knackered (sorry folks) Adam to review an incredible issue of Transformers vs GI Joe.An issue generating a lot of praise from may quarters. It's a shame that the delays in delease, and the art style have squeezed this title to the sidelines of the IDW Transformers program. In addition to Adam's weary state, we have a few audio drops. Apologies, there are only a few.

At the end we note the current state of this title. Will we continue to enjoy this series for much longer?

The Underbase Discussion Series : Comic Basement #4 Gender Roundtable

Join Mikey and guests Isa, Sprite and Heather, as they discuss a wide range of aspects involving gender and the representation in both the Transformer, and wider, comic communities.

Insightfull, hilarious, revealing and often razor-sharp, this is not only one of the most, hopefully, enjoyable discussions we have published on the Underbase, but covers several topics in a frank and level-headed fashion that is sometimes missing across certain elements of our fandom.

As a sidenote, there are more killer quotes in this show than you can shake a stick at, but also a few audio issues we have hopefully minimised. Contains strong language.

 

Intro

03:50 Growing up with transformers

18:50 Great/favourite female characters, pre-IDW

29:50 What were the main issues with representation in the TF universe, pre-IDW

43:30 The shame of the Starscream fan club

47:00 The current positive swings in comic media representation and the power of social media

1:00:04 IDW comics, starting with Arcee

1:16:00 - Getaway, and his links to Mikey's nightmare club incident

1:19:30 - The current IDW attitude, the increasingly vocal fan support.

1:34:00 - The importance of fan-fiction and the creative exploits of the Transformer fanbase, including adult fiction.

1:40:30 Victorion and discussion on where the current plot will lead.

1:45:00 What non-IDW TF character would you like to be included in future IDW cannon.
