As IDW Publishing gears up for the release of the June comics solicitations, Comic Book Resources has shared the first look at the cover for the new ongoing series by Mairghread Scott and Sara Pitre-Durocher, as they continue to look at the works of Windblade and the Council of Worlds: starting this June, Till All Are One!

IDW Publishing is set to debut a new "Transformers" ongoing series this June, and CBR has the exclusive first details. "Transformers: Till All Are One" is scheduled for June, from the creative team of writer Mairghread Scott and artist Sara Pitre-Durocher.

"Till All Are One" looks to pick up story threads from the Scott-written "Transformers: Windblade," which wrapped last year with issue #7. The series stars Windblade and Starscream, and starts with an unsurprisingly fragile peace between Autobots and Decepticons. Scott and Pitre-Durocher previously collaborated on a "Transformers: Combiner Hunters" story released last year.

Well, that kinda spoils how All Hail Optimus is going to turn out...and apparently Bruticus might still happen?

Starscream's secret police would be cool if actual Transformers were used. All of the secret police look like men in grey clunky suits of armor. IMO the artists are too lazy to design any unnamed character that looks like it could actually Transform.

Look how good Blast Off looks with the QS head when you add a faceplate. That's all Hasbro had to do.


Also, all the Combaticons being in their CW bodies strengthens my suspicion that Swindle might not be dead...

While Scott writes a decent Starscream I am decidedly not a fan of her writing, at all. I want to give her the benefit of the doubt but I wish Barber was at least co writing this series.

Nor am I. Personally I am not a fan of her writing in the slightest. I wish this was a team up book with Barber and Roberts. Let John work out the plots and have James handle personalities. She's not a bad writer but she's not a good transformers writer. Here's the first two Windblade volumes in a nutshell, "Starscream is bad, why? Because. Can you elaborate? No... He's just bad and he needs to be stopped." Sorry, I'm not a Starscream fanboy but he seriously has done nothing really awful to show he wants to build an empire like Windblade accuses him of" he's had the Enigma for a long time now and hasn't used it to build one combiner. Personally I think Starscream has changed. He's still a D-bag but he's not the monster Windblade accuses him to be. I am waiting for him to do something awful but so far he hasn't othe than be jealous of Optimus Prime.

I never believed Swindle was dead, I think Rattrap has him on life support somewhere but hey maybe he is and we'll get a new combaticon like how scoop has filled in for Scrapper. Long shot I know but you never know.

Edit: Got rid of the first bit I see their mention in the description my bad.



Your logic makes no sense (it never does) the badgeless are supposed to be you know secret and your not supposed to know who they are I'm pretty sure it's just armor anyways that you can't transform in.


And you think this is lazy but honestly how would you design faceless mooks better then them huh?

Funny how it's Hasbro's Blast Off (plus faceplate) but Takara's Vortex (four rotors) with Hasbro's colors.

you're not supposed to know the secret police exist. It was never stated anywhere that we're not supposed to know who they are! And half the fandom can design secret police better than the blobs of lead IDW is trying to pass off as Transformers.

Can't.. breathe... laughing... too.. hard...

Obligatory OT insert....

I certainly hope Scott takes this chance to actually give some story to Screamer and Windblade. There was always a hint, I'd like to see more focus on it.

But the Badgeless are not secret at all they just do secret deeds thier existence is not secret but what they do is their like a real life Black ops team we know they exist but we don't know everything that they do.

This looks exactly what the fandom would make in fact this design looks a lot better then what one person could make up.

Then again you have a hate boner for everything IDW does and anything that was made after 1985 in fact I wouldn't be surprised if you liked Transformers: Deviations which most people agree is a bunch of turd.

Plus literally the first issue they are introduced, Starscream explains that they are badgeless and faceless so they can "enforce the law" without fear of reprisals in their off hours. So this is probably 84ever talking out his aft again.

I hate Beast Wars but I'm not going around every BW thread to say how awful the designs are (Not my actual problem)

...Did we read the same comics, because in the first Windblade volume the big reveal was that Starscream wasn't the bad guy. Yes, most characters generally think he's up to no good (he is infamous, after all), but volume 1 ends with Windblade concluding that it's better to cooperate with him.

As for the empire-building accusation - Starscream is legendarily power-hungry. We've seen it throughout IDW, and volume 1 made a point of Windblade spending much of her time talking to 'bots familiar with that legacy of greed and treachery. While flawed, (story seemed far too compressed - I'd imagine this is related to it being announced as an ongoing then shifting to a miniseries) volume 2 handled the Starsceam / Windblade dynamic quite well - shifting from competitive to tensely cooperative as the situation changed.

(Also, on the note of Starscream and awfulness, remember when he sicced Menasor on Caminus? Added an angry 'con to Menasor to make it more unstable? Tore the place up, killed a lot of innocent natives? 'Scream's still a monster, just less public about it.)

Remember the ending of volume one when it was revealed Starscream wasn't the villain of it but Chromia was? She bombed an area of Metroplex, killing a lot of innocent people and then tried to spacebridge Metroplex back to Caminus which would have killed hundreds more Cybertronians and it ended with Winblade just slapping Chromias hands and saying "do it again and we can't be friends" wow...

Seriously the Plot of Windblade was "grrr Starscream is bad, we need to stop him! Why? Because a bunch of people at blurs bar say he is! Grrrr! We have to stop Starscream!" And then it was revealed he wasn't the villain of that series. How did that end? With Windblade making a deal with him to use the spacebridge if they cover up Chromia killing a bunch of people.

Chromia: I killed a bunch of people
Windblade: -GROAN- that's alright I guess just don't do it again please...

Seriously, that series was really bad.
