As a resolute Windblade gathers the backup she can and dive back into the mine meets with resistance as a bad guy warns: “You aren’t makin’ it outta here, misfits.”
Halfway through “Windblade’s” run, Scott brings the city speaker into action and the verge of uncovering what’s really going on. Scott brings out great character moments, particularly between Windblade, Chromia, Ironhide, Blurr and, of course, Waspinator. While last issue—unusual and striking—would be impossible to beat, Scott continues her quality work on the title.
Stone’s remarkable, cartoon-meets-paint art remains refreshing different from the efforts of the other two current TF artists, Alex Milne and Andrew Griffith. It just jumps out at you, looking like stills from a honest-to-goodness TV show. It should be noted, though, that Stone’s style is so different that, while attractive and dynamic, sometimes makes the characters difficult to recognize. Still, that little quibble is worth it just to see such a unique take on the TF designs.
The cool creative team continues to do great work on this mini-series and makes it an imperative to pick up the next issue. “Transformers: Windblade” keeps bringing the quirkiness to the TF world. Stay tuned to this ‘toon-style title.
