Update! April Fool'd By The Club...Forgiveness Possible.
Don Figueroa is to be 'real' artist for convention comic, making a brief return for the club, and the 3 page preview should still be happening on Thursday. End Update

The Fooled--Yesterday, on the Collector's Club website, it was announced that a 3 page preview of the mirrorverse 'Shattered Glass' convention comic book would be available online this Thursday. Apparently, a prominent member of the club's own forums has been able to scoop up the preview early and present it for all to see.

For those that want the entire comic book and style to stay a surprise, please know that my opinon is that you will be pleased with the art style chosen and the first few pages represent what looks to be a quality story with very surprising guest stars galore! This is not your father's Transformers!!

For those willing to be a bit more spoiled check out Page 1, Page 2, and Page 3.

Thanks to Munkeefist for the detective work!--The Fooler

Wait, what does that mean? THis is real, just check out the link to the CClub website, and see the page they took their pic from.

I doubt they would take the time to do up three pages to mislead us... :-B

Grimlock's an upper-class genius, Starscream's a gentleman, Predacons are featured, and the rest of the Cons backup are past Botcon exclusives? This is very weird, but cool at the same time. I wonder what the Deathsaurus repaint character will be called, or if he'll still be called Deathsaurus?

I don't mind the art. I just don't like the writing. Far too many I grimlocks. But I am not attending so this won't effect me anyways.

Wow, thats pretty meh. If its a fan production than okay, but the art is pretty bad the script is atrocious.


I'm sorry but this storyline deserves way better.

Why do they all seem to speak as if they were 'British'? :-(

Well it could be an April Fool, but by golly, TFCC would get all of us then...

I like the art btw, and I know some wouldn't but I find it refreshingly different and very G2, UK in its feel. :APPLAUSE:

Guys, its an April Fools prank. These pages aren't real. The cub's site put up a fake 3-page preview to get us all excited.

They had me fooled too.

I'm not sure "excited" is the right word. It would have been more like "scared". ;)

I mean, the art's cool, and some of the implied potential characterization might be interesting. But the dialogue is terrible. Then again, it seems a number of people on the Net liked it...

In complaining about the dialogue, you're simply proving how badly you've missed the point.
