I just picked the first issue of this comic series up today.
Now, most of you who are transformers fans know about Windblade and the drama going on behind it, but for those who aren’t up to date or aren’t traditionally transformers fans I want to explain why this comic is a big deal.
Here is the TLDR version: It’s a comic written by a woman, drawn by a woman, and about a woman.
A COMIC written and drawn and about WOMEN.
That’s monumental, and it’s monumental in a day and age where it shouldn’t be. It’s a tradition that should continue on into the future, and for that reason alone I suggest you go out and pick up a copy of IDW’s Transformers: Windblade today, even if you don’t know much about transformers.
IF you don’t know much about transformers, it’s actually a very good launching point to learn more.
Still need more reasons why to pick up this comic? Read on!
