I cannot say much more about it since if you are looking at this you have already decided to get it you are just looking for reassurance. I am not hear to give you that, but I can say that I love it and did not regret it once.

Music wasn't as easy, and accessible then as it seems now and shows such as MTV's Head Bangers Ball and MTV's Alternative Nation weren't afraid to show this. When MTV launched their Real World, life itself turned out to be not that easy. MTV Sports showed that the fun in life shouldn't be sought in front of a TV, or even in music. And let us not forget Beavis and Butthead; MTV taking a piss at the whole of society as well as the record industry. All of these show were a true delight.
And then there was MTV's Oddities, not so much a show as an umbrella under which three very distinct and very different cartoons where shown. These cartoons where: The Head; an alien invasion of Earth can only be stopped by another alien, living inside the now disproportionate head of an ordinary human; the least interesting of these three in my modest opinion, The Max; a multidimensional tale of alter egos, parallel universes, hopes, dreams & traumatic experiences; a cartoon equivalent to Twin Peaks or the Sandman (the whole series has been released on one single video; a recommended buy) and Æon Flux; a futuristic tale that combines familiar elements of the Cold War, recently 'won' by the US, such as the Vietnam War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the divided Berlin, the Star Wars-missile shield, (counter-)espionage and a unclear distinction between good and bad, with social and cultural criticism.
Æon Flux, created by artist Peter Chung, was first aired in the US in 1991. It wouldn't be aired in Europe for another year. It's unorthodox portrait of human beings; shown with elongated limbs, reminiscent of Egyptian art during the reign of the rebel Pharaoh Akhnaten, it's dark corrupt society and the protagonist, Æon Flux, herself; perhaps the ultimate anarchist cyber punk icon, combined with the episodes topics, religion, politics, genetic manipulation, hope, salvation, oppression, war, love, lust... all of life was represented, caused this series to be an instant cult success. MTV aired three seasons of Æon Flux, and have released all of the episodes on three videos.
Three seasons, three videos, that seems logical, but for some reason MTV has decided not to adhere to the order in which the episodes were aired. Nevertheless these videos are true gems. When seen in isolation, they paint a picture of a society both recognizable and estranging. When viewed in succession MTV, with this series, finally manages to realize its lofty Victorian goals.
Aeon Flux ist eine Comic-Serie, die früher auf MTV unter dem Motto "Oddities" neben "The Maxx" und "The Head" lief. Ganz dem MTV-Stil verpflichtet, lebt diese SF-Serie von schnellen Schnitten. Die Charaktere sind raffiniert und vertrackt wie sonst in keiner Comic-Serie.
Aeon Flux ist ein echter Klassiker und darf in keiner Sammlung von Comic-Fans, die es gern etwas abgedrehter haben, fehlen.
