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.
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 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.
