Honestly I wish I could care about the character more than I do nowadays. I'm just tired tof her being the center of these stories and not needing to be. I liked the first windblade miniseries when it came out and recently went back and reread it and just thought to myself, "wow...this really wasn't very good" it really did nothing in the form of giving her a character. The entire story was "Starscream is bad and we need to stop him! Oh wait! He actually didn't kill a bunch of people, it as my best friend! Grrr! Starscream is still bad! Shame on you Chromia but Grrr Starscream still needs to be stopped! Doing what exactly? I don't know know but he's bad"

That is Windblade volume 1 in a nutshell.

I get why we got the first volume. She's our character, we made her but one or two pages actually delved into her backstory and that's all. The two issues of MTMTE with nautica and firestar gave us more back story and characterization for Nautica than 2 volumes and multiple appearances in not-RID has done for Windblade and even Chromia(who is one of the worst written characters in IDW).

Volume 2 is a decent story if you don't look at it as Windblade Volume 2 because, while she's a POV character, that series really wasn't about her and shouldn't have been named after her. I really think it should have been a 4-6 issue series called "the Council of Worlds" I really hope "till all are one" is not just the Windblade series with a different name. Do it like the first 16 issues of RID where each issue has a narrative from a different character.

The way people felt about Drift when he first appeared is how I am feeling about Windblade anymore. "HERES WINDBLADE! HERES WINDBLADE! WHAT? YOU WANT HER WRITTEN WITH CHARACTER?! SHE HATES STARSCREAM! THERE YOU GO!"
