We have reached the fantastic conclusion to the Transformers: Windblade mini-series and, as I've just said, it's fantastic.  Everything that I've enjoyed about the previous three issues?  You could probably just pretend that I said it all again because it's all still true.  Mairghread Scott writes an intriguing story with strong characterization.  Sarah Stone blows us away with phenomenal art.  Starscream shines.  This is one of those Transformers books that it would be a shame to miss.

The climax of this issue is it's only weak point.  When the actual villain is revealed, it's almost sidestepped to get to the rest of the comic's conclusion.  They definitely don't pay for what they've done and that leads me to by mostly unsatisfied with that particular aspect of the comic.  
This is very difficult to talk about without revealing spoilers! :D

Beyond that, the story is golden and it's amazing that everything else about the story more than makes up for the shortcoming of what mystery that seemed like the central point of the mini-series.  It turns out the whole thing was more about world-building, philosophy, and the ties that bind us together than the person responsible for killing innocent Cybertronians and severely weakening Metroplex.

There's not much more left to say, really.  It's a beautiful comic that sets up some sweet teases for where thing in the Transformers universe might go next.  If you haven't picked this one up, then at least get the trade.  Chances are, you will not be disappointed.

About the Author - SuperginraiX


SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
