Transformers News: A review of IDW Transformers Shattered Glass #3
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.

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.
