Binary System Podcast #64: Happy (Geeky) New Year!

No new episode of Welcome To Night Vale this week. And the classic episode the Night Vale producers decided to air…isn’t one of our favorites.

SO, this week the twins decided to just kick back and talk about books they’ve finished, TV shows they’re watching, and some of the geeky Christmas presents we received. (Yes, our parents are still buying us comic books and Transformers toys. No, we don’t have a bit of shame about that.) Listen in as the conversation jumps from Mr. Robot to Sherlock (no spoilers) to Transformers with swords and why they’re so cool.

Review & Preview – Transformers More Than Meets The Eye – Revolution 1

This is my favorite book in the entire Revolution event, hands down. Not only is the art fantastic and the writing brilliant, but it’s like they took all of my qualms about Revolution (lots of humans, franchises I didn’t follow) and said “Here. This is for you. You’ll like it.” And I did, I really really did.

See below for more spoiler-free jumping up and down about Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye – Revolution 1. Or skip the review and just buy the book. I promise I won’t be mad.

We geek out over the artists we got to meet, give a breakdown on our first attempts at Doctor Who cosplay, and talk about the awesomeness that is the Big Apple.

The Dying of the Light part 4! Twilight’s last gleaming! The end is nigh. No chance of escape. No last-minute reprieve. But nothing loosens the tongue like imminent death, and the crew of the Lost Light use their final hours to say what—until now—was unsayable.

“If you want to break someone — mentally, physically, emotionally — wait until they’re happy. Let them live and love and thrive. Once they recognize the value of a life well lived… THAT’S when you move in for the kill. Because you can’t take anything from someone who has nothing to lose.” –Tarn

The Decepticon Justice Division has the crew of the Lost Light pinned down (except for the crew back on the shop who are busy staging a mutiny) and Megatron’s acting very strange. Click the jump for preview pages and a review of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #51.

Review: Transformers More Than Meets The Eye #50

The Dying of the Light – Part 1! Since joining the Lost Light, Megatron has rejected everything that once made him the most feared and hated Cybertronian of all time.

“This shouldn’t take long.”
“Really? For something that shouldn’t take long, you’re carrying an awful lot of firepower.”
“The two are connected.”

When we last saw the Scavengers they were trying to decide whether or not to sell the brain-damaged (and prone to draining himself on the floor…ew) Grimlock to the scrap-merchant, Demus, for a ridiculous amount of money. They were interrupted, not by the Decepticon Justice Division as we’d thought, but by Fortress Maximus. At the beginning of this issue we get to find out why Max was there, who he’s chasing, and what Demus has been up to.

Make a list of every single Decepticon. Remove the warriors, the high-rankers, the loyal foot soldiers, the over-achievers, and anyone who’s ever made even a modest contribution to The Cause. You should now have five names left. Welcome back, guys.
