Comic Review: “Transformers: Windblade” #1

In the world of comics, something new is always heralded as a big thing.  It could be a new story, a new writer, a new art team, a new mini-series, a new #1 issue of a long running series — or even a combination of several of the above.  Publishers will do their best to say that New Stuff makes for a comic Worth Reading.  (Sometimes they all but scream it in your ear.)  The problem with this is that bringing New Stuff has been done so often that there’s a big potential for a letdown.

Another Open Letter to Dan Slott

[Spoilers for The Superior Spider-Man #31, and, well, heck, the entire series.] Hey, Dan, I know, it’s been a while since we last talked.  Don’t worry, I didn’t forget you or my promise to see where The Superior Spider-Man went.  Things just have gotten busy for me.  In these past sixteen months, a lot has happened.  I’ve had a kid, I’ve lost sleep, I’ve lost some sanity (the latter two thanks to the first event).  But I’ve still been reading SSM, anticipating the big day when Mental Ghost Peter would take back control from Otto.

IDW Previews – April 16, 2014 – Transformers, 24 and More

There are a couple of books that IDW is releasing tomorrow that caught my eye.  First and foremost we have the highly-anticipated Transformers: Windblade #1.  The character of Windblade is fascinating from a behind-the-scenes standpoint alone.  It’s the first character ever created in Transformers with input from all fans.  Last year, Hasbro put up a poll asking what kind of character the fans would want, and lo-and-behold, we have Windblade, a female Transformer that exists in a universe where there aren’t many of her kind.  Not only that, she’s also the only robot around who can speak to Metroplex.  In the
