In celebration of the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Sequart will be publishing content related to the Transformers all this week.
From their initial “Generation 1″ cartoon, toys, and comic book in the 1980s, the Transformers have gone on to become a pop-culture staple. Yet they’ve received relatively little analysis. This week is a small attempt to correct that.
Sequart uses themed weeks as a way of celebrating popular subjects, filling holes in comics and pop-culture criticism, and serializing in-depth criticism over a single week instead of many weeks (or even months). You can think of them as miniature conventions or conferences.
Transformers Week is Sequart’s ninth themed week. Past themed weeks include:
