Transformers Shattered Glass is Coming to Comics from IDW and Hasbro
During the recent Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest, Hasbro revealed a new Transformers figure set in the “Shattered Glass” universe. “Shattered Glass” is a fan-favorite world that takes us to an inverse done so well in other properties where the bad guys are good and good guys are bad. The next figure being released is Blurr.
Announced with the toy was a new comic series Shattered Glass being published by IDW Publishing. The comic will be written by Danny Lore with art by Guido Guidi.
While the exact details are being held tight, the miniseries consists of five issues, each from the perspective of one character. Each character will be released with a special variant cover issue of the comic. Which characters are coming are unknown but one will be released each month from Hasbro alongside an issue from the series.
From the Blurr announcement:
The figures also comes with a brand-new comic book, IDW Shattered Glass Issue #1. 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. And in issue #1, many kilocycles after the Cybertronian War has destroyed Earth, BLURR, an evil AUTOBOT Seeker, hunts down STARSCREAM, a DECEPTICON explorer who holds a piece of information that could reignite the war. Fans can join author Danny Lore(James Bond, King in Black: Captain America, Champions) and artist Guido Guidi (Optimus Prime: First Strike) in exploring this fractured alternate universe just before it shatters.
Discover a universe that shatters everything you know about the Transformers robots…an upside-down world where the bad guys are good, and the good guys are bad. Welcome to Shattered Glass, an alternate universe where the heroic DECEPTICONS battle the evil AUTOBOTS. Fans can explore this topsy-turvy reality with the TRANSFORMERS Shattered Glass Collection, featuring classic characters with a twist!
