Transformers: Windblade Interview with Mairghread Scott

Posted on 01-30-2015 at 03:01 PM by Matty under Comics
windblade3 Comics Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with Transformers: Windblade writer Mairghread Scott for an interview about the upcoming Combiner Wars comic storyline.

As always, if you want to remain completely surprised and spoiler free, be safe and skip the rest.

The interview dives into the background of Windblade and her mini-series comic, her tie-in to the Combiner Wars, as well as what lies ahead for the popular fan created character. We've already received confirmation about Windblade's future, but for even more reassurance Scott once again confirmed what we all want to hear:

Comics Alliance: What plans do you have for her going forward? Is it right to say that the book will be continuing onwards as a series, even after “Combiner Wars” wraps up?

Mairghread Scott: It is absolutely right to say. Transformers: Windblade will not only continue after “Combiner Wars,” it will be dealing with the events of “Combiner Wars” for a long time. As far as plans go, I have way more plans than I should, for a lot of characters.

Almost none of them are nice though.


The Combiner Wars will start in March, who's ready to find out what Scott is hinting at? Make the jump to discuss your thoughts!

More than Meets the Eye #22 Deleted Scene

Posted on 01-10-2015 at 06:10 AM by Sol Fury under Comics
Deleted Over New Years, James Roberts shared the script for a scene which was deleted from the script of More than Meets the Eye #22. More than Meets the Eye #22 was the issue where we saw Rewind's documentary about life on the Lost Light, and this scene depicts an exchange between Ratchet and Drift that did not make the final cut.

According to James, the scene was never run by John Barber or Hasbro, so it's not canon - though it is very much so to James!

The scene has now been brought to life by Josh Burcham, which he has shared in our Transformers Fan Art forum! Be sure to check it out!

Windblade Series Continuing After Combiner Wars

Posted on 12-31-2014 at 02:32 PM by Mechafire under Comics
tumblr_n2hkxsGRD11r1n44mo1_500_1394902563 We've known for a while now that IDW's Transformers (formerly Robots in Disguise) would be uniting with the returning Windblade series to form the Combiner Wars event. However, the nature of the Windblade series has remained somewhat nebulous - until now. Writer Mairghread Scott has just clarified on her Tumblr that the Windblade series will be continuing, even after Combiner Wars:

"Hey. Just wanted some clarification. Is Windblade coming back as another miniseries or as an ongoing because I've heard both from different places"

"Windblade will be continuing after Combiner Wars. Happy New Year!"


Unfortunately, not many details beyond that are known at the moment, but keep an eye out for more info as it rolls in.

Discuss this revelation after the jump!

James Roberts Teases 2015 Transformers Comic Details

Posted on 12-29-2014 at 09:48 PM by Mechafire under Comics
TF_MTMTE_28_cvrSUB_1396040008 Fan-favorite Transformers comic writer James Roberts, scribe of the much-beloved Transformers: More than Meets the Eye series, has posted a few teasers on his Twitter about what is in store for us in 2015, including characters such as the DJD, Deathsaurus (AKA Deszaras), more female Transformers, and more!

"We've got some BIG stories coming up in 2015. The DJD! The Scavengers! More female TFs! Fort Max! Thunderclash! Deathsaurus!"

In addition, when questioned about the possible inclusion of Impactor, Springer, and Sixshot, Roberts cryptically answered with this response:

"I can't list *everyone*, can I? :-)"

Does this mean these characters may have a shot at appearing as well? Sound off on what you think after the jump!
