Good bad guys and bad good guys await in tomorrow's release of Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 from IDW Publishing. Sure, you could wait for Hasbro Pulse to deliver this issue when your SG Megatron figure gets dropped off, but did you see the way they packed Blurr's comic? You'll probably want to buy this from somewhere that knows what bags and boards are. IDW has, as usual, provided a five page preview to further tempt you to do just that for an issue they describe as:

(W) Danny Lore (A) Dan Khanna (CA) Alex Milne
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 #2, Megatron is the only bot who can stop the three Autobot warlords from acquiring information that could reignite the war, but can he forgive his past mistakes and take up the mantle of Deception leader again

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.

I think I like IDW SG Prowl's Colors more than Classics SG Prowl. The blue and white looks good.

Is there a reason why Megatron doesn't have the symbol on his chest?

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

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


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
