IDW 2014 Sneak Peek – Transformers: Windblade, Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction And More

IDW-Transformers-Windblade-Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-1

IDW is sharing with us what they have planned for the upcoming year (2014). Though it’s called a “Sneak Peek”, they only offer samples of a few titles but mention what they have in store for us.

For Transformers, we have Transformers: Windblade, which will be out in April next year.

Spoilers:[/COLOR][/B]

Spoiler:
“Who is Windblade? In the aftermath of Dark Cybertron, Windblade takes the planet by storm—and Starscream’s not happy about her being there! But where did she come from—and what does her secret mean to the future of the Transformers? A powerful new chapter in the Transformers saga begins here!”

Obviously, this ties in with the character created from the Fan Built Bot poll, whose figure will also be coming out later next year. Could this specific comic be her pack-in, and could this have to do with what the previously reported Newsarama article[/url] was hinting at? We’ll just have to wait and see.

X-Files: Conspiracies will also include Transformers.

But, here’s a bit of a surprise. Though it was mentioned countless times that there will be no tie-in/adaptation comic book for Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Sneak Peek lists that there will be one after all! At the moment we do not know whether this is an IDW story of their own or whether it ties in with the movie story.

UPDATE: By way of Twitter, it has been confirmed that Transformers: Prime/Rage of the Dinobots/Beast Hunters writer Mairghread Scott is writing the Windblade comic, while Transformers newcomer Sarah Stone will be on art duties. In an interesting bit of trivia, this is the first Transformers comic ever to have an all-female creative team.

    So Mairghread Scott is writing the Windblade issue? Interesting...

    Thank almighty Christ Furman's not writing it.

    I doubt it. Seems odd for one character to get her own ongoing. I imagine it is a miniseries introducing her to the IDW-verse and then will incorporate her into the mainstream comics.

    Something about her look seems familiar... The G1 episode Face of Nijika comes to mind.

    Welp, there's my brain fart for the day. Of course it's a miniseries.

    But yes, I actually thought about that Face of Nijika connection a few weeks ago. I wonder if maybe SHE's connected to the Quintessons somehow.

    Well, looks like Starscream survives Dark Cybertron, which I actually didn't expect. Not sure how I feel about Windblade being pushed so hard, or M. Scott writing for the main IDW continuity, but I guess we'll see how it turns out.

    I actually think it's a good thing. Scott seems to actually give a shit about female characters, and hopefully will not crowbar in a horrendous, forced origin for her.

    Hmm... it appears that we might have a name for the post-Dark Cybertron status quo as well. "Dawn of the Auto Ots?" (now, is there a "b" missing from there or not?)

    She doesn't give a shit.

    She'll transform the franchise if that's what it takes to have the fembots be integral. Plus, she does interesting stuff in BH.

    I still don't get way fembots needed to be explained in the first place.
