It looks like a pre-war flashback, before the Decepticon faction had even been conceived in this universe.

A review of IDW Transformers Shattered Glass #2

The Conversation
A Review of Transformers Shattered Glass #2 by Mr. Micromaster

The new Shattered Glass series from IDW continues to deliver. This delivers an incredibly enjoyable read with splendid art.

Not your Dad’s Optimus!

The writing for this series continues to be superb. Lore is especially adept at writing incredibly compelling characters. I found Starscream and Megatron to be both intriguing and compelling characters. The conversation between Starscream who sees Megatron as his noble leader and Megatron who sees himself as nothing less than abject failure and a pathetic excuse for a leader comes across as both a fresh and unique take. Said conversation also allows us to explore Megatron’s beings on cybertron and the war on earth. The dynamic between Megatron and Starscream allows Lore to weave a wonderfully captivating narrative.

Alternators Dead End what are you doing here?

The art in this issue is done by Daniel Khanna with colors by John-Paul Bove and lettering done by Neil Uyetake. Khanna’s art in this issue is phenomenal for the most part. There are a couple issues that detract from it. The first panel we see of Megatron pre-war, something is off with it and I am not sure if it is drawn differently or if it is the colors or something else, but it just does not jive with the rest of the book. Besides that, the rest of this book features competent and strong art with incredibly emotive faces. You can see the fear and shock on Prowl’s face when Megs picks him up. The great thing about Bove’s coloring is that it seems to work with any artist no matter how varied or similar in style. Uyetake’s lettering is equally well done. Despite a few hiccups the art in this issue is fantastic.
Verdict

Hm? Where have I seen this before?

Overall, this book is a home run of which IDW, and the creative team can be proud of. As long as this book keeps up the pace it just may go down as the best transformers book of 2021. This issue is a definite recommend.

Yes, after a 2nd read I figured that as well. The 1st time I rushed through it too fast. And Prowl is green...

Here’s to hoping that we get this Prowl in toy form! I love the colors and the use of Barricade’s mold

Five Page Preview of IDW Transformers: Shattered Glass #3

Postby ScottyP » Tue Oct 26, 2021 1:23 pm

Weapon: Battle Blades
Many fans have already been able to read the fourth issue of the series thanks to the SG Goldbug toy already shipping out from Hasbro Pulse, but thankfully the missing piece of the series won't be out of reach for long as Transformers: Shattered Glass #3 is out tomorrow. IDW Publishing has provided a five page preview of the new title, which won't ship alongside any toys until SG Starscream goes out, so the opportunity is there to not have to wait to get more of the story.

(W) Danny Lore (A) Guido Guidi (CA) Fico Ossio
Shattered Glass isn't your average Transformers tale... "Shards" is the story of the ongoing battle between the power-hungry Autobot autocrats and the freedom-fighting Decepticon laborers. Join author Danny Lore (James Bond, King in Black: Captain America, Champions) in exploring this fractured alternate universe just before it shatters.

In issue #3, Starscream seeks out more Decepticons to prevent another war that could destroy Cybertron, but memories of the past haunt every step. As the Autobots close in, Starscream must decide between peace for his planet and his former best friend.

Check out the preview below and be sure to pick this issue up tomorrow at your local comic shop, through a licensed digital comics retailer, or via the Seibertron.com eBay store.

Not bad. Although I like the "mature" storyline, it just reminds me of the regular comics. Shouldn't SG be a lot more "grim dark", like the previous SG comics before it, or the "Mirror Universe" episodes in Startrek?

Bet you can’t wait for my toy


This series continues to be a homerun. With new and interesting characterizations and an exciting new take on the Shattered Glass universe. As well as just downright enjoyable art. For me this book continues to be the premier IDW Transformers book.

The story continues at a gradual pace but heats up towards the end. We pick back up with Megs and Starscream in Gold City meeting up with everybody’s favorite decepticon DJ Soundwave to reach out to allies and prepare to wake up Metroplex. We also delve into the past with Jetfire and Starscream and explore their relationship. Unfortunately for Megs and Starscream, Blaster and all his rowdy friends catch up with them. Luckily Starscream manages to escape but only temporarily as Goldbug and his old buddy Jetfire catch up with him.

Danny Lore continues to craft an excellent narrative with incredibly interesting characters. After delving into the relationship between Megs and Starscream last issue, this issue we delve into the relationship between Jetfire and Starscream. The latter of which is clearly the dominant partner trying to convince the other that regardless of where the money comes from for their project, they need to accept it because they are running out of backers. Eventually for them, things come to a boiling point leading to betrayal and questioning of loyalties. Starscream continues to be the highlight of these series.

Image
I hope I’m not just here to die.


The art this issue is done by Guido Guidi with colors by John-Paul Bove and letters by Neil Uyetake. John-Paul Bove’s colors and Guido Guidi’s artwork work well together. Guidi’s art is fantastic, the splash page with Metroplex’s unearthed head is beautiful. Bove’s colors as with the rest of the series are excellent. Neil Uyetake’s lettering continues to be competent and well done. The art for this continues to be fun, exciting, and never disappoints.

Verdict

Overall, this book continues to be great. The art and the story suit each other incredibly well. The overarching story is definitely heating up for the final two issues, and I cannot wait to see how this is going to end.

Couldn't agree with this review more. It's such a massive shame we're only getting 5 issues of this! THIS is how you market comic-only toy releases, with top notch storytelling.
