    Not sure how to feel about another McCarthy mini. The original Drift mini wasn't too bad, I guess.

    I'm intrigued by this 'Transformers: Punisment' thing. Supposedly available now, but I can't find any mention of it on the Madefire website...

    >Another Drift series by McCarthy

    Hilarious, can't wait for the rage. I'm excited for it!

    >Windblade continuing

    Yay!

    >Verity in RID

    Oh god no...

    >Furman not coming back

    Hopefully should Furman return, he'll use this time to "get his head back in the game", so to speak.

    Awesome stuff. Glad to hear that Drift is coming back with a new series. :D  Transformers: Punishment sounds really cool too.

    Nice to hear another Windblade mini-series will be made, and that Sarah stone will do artwork for it. Also curious about the "Early era" story that was mentioned when talking about MTMTE.

    "IDW explained that their plan is to have the two main series to be complemented with a miniseries. We have had Windblade, and more miniseries were hinted at."

    That's a perfect idea, I really like that setup. :) 

    Also, I'm gonna lol if people start hating on Drift again, or call him overhyped, after the hilarious Windblade fiasco.

    I'm loving Windblade, and I'm thrilled to see it continued, but please let "Windblade Returns" not be the final name.

    Well Drift is in AOE. And more Scavengers and Grimlock, bout time. Windblade's miniseries is doing well, so a second one doesn't surprise me.

    Verity! Yay! In RID? Booooooo!

    MTMTE 31 sounds interesting, I get what Roberts meant abou an X-Files episode now. They did a couple of those one camera, no cuts episodes.

    Haven't got Windoes 8 so I guess that TF Punishment will have to be skipped for now.

    Windblade II next year? Not sure what to think about that to be honest. I'd assumed that she'd be absorbed into the main RID cast. Wait and see how things pan out.

    Empire of Stone sounds an interesting sub title for another Drift mini. Hope that McCarthy doesn't fly against what Roberts has done with him.

    The report just says that it's free on the Windows 8 version of the app. It'll be available on the iOS app and the online viewer too, you'll just have to pay.

    From the Allspark's panel report:

    I was hoping for a comic that explains more deep about the transition between the 3rd and 4th movie, like what happened to Sam and the others? they just let Bee and the Transformers be killed and continuing with their lifes?

    I had high hopes for Windblade but I have been disappointed. I am not into at all. I am only buying to keep up with the story line. Too many titles to follow. I like the two prong storyline approach. I wish they just stick with that. The one-shot spotlights are fun, but I don't need another 4-part series that goes no where.

    But Drift doesn't suck anymore.

    Oh shit, Drift doesn't suck anymore! What if McCarthy fucks him up?

    The same Windblade. It's just continuing.
