Alas, alack, this is the last of this four-issue miniseries! But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? Windblade, her writer Mairghread Scott, and her artist Sarah Stone shall be returning in an on-going series and the upcoming crossover "Combiner Wars"!

So we see a really different side of Windblade, one trying to hold her own in the shadowy political world of Cybertron (a world Starscream is the undisputed master of) while still trying to hold onto some sort of moral compass. The question for Windblade in "Combiner Wars" is really: How far can you go in the name of good until you aren't good anymore? When does the end stop justifying the means?

--Mairghread Scott

So I guess I just spoiled that she doesn't die at the end of this series? Oh well. )

"My strategy was to backtrack her design into a character. Work from the outside in, as it were. It was pretty clear she had a very important, formal position. But, because I don't like any of my character's lives to be easy, I thought it would be more interesting to make that a major contrast in her. So Windblade became a very hopeful, youthful character trying to fill a role that's a little too big for her. Everything else built from there," she explained.

...

"I, personally, am working toward the future, and the future I want to see is one where more little kids, and grown men, and teenage girls—where more people like Transformers and get joy from it," Scott said. "It's not the grandest dream, but it's mine."

I guess Metroplex is a little big for her )

The most important thing for me when constructing Windblade was to make her a fully three-dimensional (read: flawed) character, so if I had to pick one word to describe her I would say that Windblade is trying. She's an optimistic, hard-working Transformers character who is genuinely interested in helping others, but she's also been dropped in the aftermath of a millennia (for real) long war that she was not really part of, so while she's a very competent character, she's way behind the curve when it comes to knowing who's who and what's what on Cybertron. This actually makes Transfomers: Windblade a really good starting point for new readers because almost everything on Cybertron is as new to her as it is to someone just entering the brand.

As the members of the fandom are gearing up for an Age of Extinction, plenty of the us are also getting ready for Phase Three of the IDW universe! Details are still being dispersed through the usual issue solicitations, but now we're actually getting some preview pages as well, courtesy of Newsarama.

Preface by Sol Fury of the TFW2005 board:
Newsarama has posted our first look at the IDW Transformers universe post-Dark Cybertron with a short preview of Robots in Disguise issue #28, the first of the issues to be released under the "Dawn of the Autobots" banner. The action is returning to Earth, and it brings us back to visit a character we've not seen a lot of since the Transformers left Earth nearly two years ago.

Be warned, there are some spoilers in this preview, although the ending of Dark Cybertron is one thing that you won't spoil for yourself.

Yeah... right (Okay, that's a cheap shot, I know they modified it to a gender neutral form in 1987 when ST:TNG came along, but given IDW's upcoming story it seemed apt)

Warp Fact 63.. )

Hi folks!

Time for a good old-fashioned crossover! And by old-fashioned, I mean a story set in 1941.



Gotta love that title. Since DC isn't doing anything with the Spirit right now, it's nice they lent him to IDW for this, and the Rocketeer is a fun character too.

The Case of the Cross-Country Corpse! )

Happy Fourth of July!

Turns out the other Captain America stories I had in mind have already been posted, so instead, let's have some ponies!



It's a new comic, so just four pages.

Good joke. Everyone laughs. Curtain falls. )

CBR have a preview exclusive cover from a title that will surely shatter the sky itself. (I'll leave the character tags out for now, for full impact)

Or something... )

Here's a bit from IDW's Free Comic Book Day Judge Dredd issue.



The first chapter of Judge Death's first appearance, which is conveniently 1/3rd of the story. (Yes, I could post the whole thing, but I want you to buy the collection.)

Lo, there shall come a Dark Judge )
