    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Apr 15, 2014

    All in all, there's a little humor, a small-scale, detailed plot and some sweet new art. While a new character – one that hasn't been around long enough to gain any sense of a following – may be see as a risky move by some, the finished product itself is definately a success. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 1, 2015

    Those of you who frequent the site might already be aware that I adored Transformers: Windblade. The miniseries was bold, fun, smart, fresh, and frankly beautiful. For me, it was effectively Transformers' answer to Ms. Marvel, and I say that with all the respect in the world and a full understanding of their differences. So when I heard that one of my favorite comics of last year was returning as an ongoing series, I was rightfully excited. And now it's finally here. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Apr 20, 2014

    Artist Sarah Stone does a great job on this first issue. Her lines are thin and energetic and she leaves a lot of lines out, giving her work a clean and uncluttered look. Stone's pencils feel as though you can still see her process since she chooses to leave some of the finer details out. What really makes her art stand out though is the colors. Stone chooses a bright color palette that makes the panels feel energetic, and makes you feel at times that you're looking at a cartoon. She mixes up the colors during some of the action sequences that give those scenes some added weight. Windblade can at times look a bit too human, but it's a small complaint compared to the overall work. Transformers: Windblade is a successful attempt at beginning a new storyline and bringing new readers in. I'm now even more excited to try the other two series in the main Transformers line to see if they'll share in this issue's same success. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Wesley Messer Apr 15, 2014

    Transformers: Windblade does a nice job at introducing the new status quo of sorts in the Universe. In turn we get a new Autobot in Windblade and Mairghread Scott and Sarah Stone work well in bringing this new character to us. It's just user friendly enough to say give this a chance. I'm far out of the Transformers Universe and I found enjoyment in this without knowing much about the current state of things. A likable new character for a new style Transformers Universe, keep an eye out for Transformers: Windblade, a comic good for new and old Transformers fans alike. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Sam Graven Mar 24, 2015

    This is a strong opening gambit from the team, and if it can address the oddities of the franchise, itll be an unmissable addition to the cannon as a whole. One to watch! Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Peter Schmeiser Apr 16, 2014

    Overall, this book just didnt really move anywhere that I cared about in 22 pages. There wasnt a sense of danger, or any really quest for the hero. She speaks for a city that transforms, so Im guessing the majority of her time an efforts will be in the realm of political intrigue and subterfuge. However, the title says Transformers, and that means the majority of the audience wants to see robots blowing each other up. Hopefully, the book will pick up in issue two. Read Full Review

    Fantastic debut for this new short series. The fans are finally getting a booking staring a female hero that is written and drawn by female creators. This is something new and very welcome to the ongoing transformers saga and I couldn't be more excited. So far, Windblade's character is easy to relate to and the art is absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see where this goes.
