    Fascinating!

    My favourite tidbit is they're going to expand the Universe and introduce more Beast Warriors. This sounds great.

    Windblade should have stayed an miniseries, so i'm glad "TAAO" is replacing and expanding the universe.

    Yeah. Maybe she can't keep up the pace with doing a new comic issue every month, if so I hope she will be back for one off issues and fill in issues or what not.

    From what I remember hearing, Sarah has been having health issues and has stepped back for a bit.

    I looked at her twitter and tumblr pages. The former's been silent for 8 months and her sister went to Anime Expo in her place according to tumblr. Hope she's feeling better.

    Till All Are One sounds really interesting. Still not certain on Mairgread Scott as a writer. I'd like to think CW was poorly written due to being a forced crossover, but the comic seemed to sacrifice it's own premise for the sake of Scott's story line so it's difficult to say she was creatively suppressed during the story. Still, if Till All Are One's going to have BW, I'm gonna give it a chance.

    "Till All Are One"... So Rodimus is leaving the Lost Light?

    Joking aside a lot of people were hoping that Scott would end up doing a more general series. I'm glad to see it, especially since I've loved the colony world concept since Energon. The fact it lets them bring in characters from outside G1 easier just makes it better.

    Shh, no one tell Rodimus that they stole his catchphrase.

    I'm pleased with this news. As much as I adore Windblade, it didn't feel right to have an entire ongoing focused around her, especially when the story was becoming less about her and more about the colonies. It also would've been really limiting in terms of character focus and plot, so I'm all for the name change.

    Well, that's my main objection resolved there. Retitling definitely lessens how much Hasbro's shilling Windbladw.

    This. She mentioned not feeling well a while back, and she's having friends/family fill in for her at con booths for the time being. It appears to be somewhat serious, but she's chosen to keep any details private so far.

    She's wonderful to talk to and a fantastic artist, and I hope things improve for her soon. It'd be great to have her back.

    That said, we've got some excellent work to look forward to from Sara Pitre-Durocher, so that's exciting news.

    Female characters are fine and all, but boy toys for boys, and girl toys for girls. Enough said.

    Guess that means Tomb Raider is primarily aimed at girls, following you logic here.

    Relaunching the book under a new title was probably the smartest move IDW's made in a while with Windblade. She's a nice lady-bot, but too much focus on just her will tire out the fanbase too quickly.

    Wonder why they couldn't just rename Windblade to Till All Are One and keep it going that way, like RiD to Not-RiD, instead of relaunching.

    And I really don't want to see an Ironhide/Chromia relationship ...
