Review: Transformers: Shattered Glass #2

Transformers: Shattered Glass #2

I’ll admit, the debut issue of Transformers: Shattered Glass didn’t excite me the way I hoped it would. For those unfamiliar with the world, “Shattered Glass” is the Transformers version of the “Mirror Universe” in Star Trek. The Autobots are the bad guys and Decepticons are good. The characters are familiar but twisted versions of themselves. Some have slightly different alt-modes but most are just different colors than what we’re used to. The mini-series is an interesting one devoting each issue to one character giving us a sort of tour of the world. While the series kicked off with Blurr and Starscream, Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 sets its sites on Megatron.

Written by Danny Lore, Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 gives us the history of the Decepticon’s war for justice. Narrated mostly by Starscream, we’re taken through a compact history of Megatron’s rise and the war that came. It’s a compact take on everything and does a decent job of catching readers up on what has happened. It also is a little bit of a let down as what’s presented is very interesting but never gets a chance to play out fully. What should be memorable moments are cut short.

Where Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 works really well is the dueling narrative between Megatron and Starscream. While Starscream gives us his perspective, Megatron sees the history another way. It’s an interesting back and forth and the best aspect of the issue and series so far. In Starscream we find a person looking for a leader and inspiration. In Megatron we see a fighter who feels like he’s failed. Each has their perspective and neither is necessarily wrong. It’s a solid example of how history is written though.

The art by Daniel Khanna is solid. With color by John-Paul Bove and lettering by Neil Uyetake, the world feels rusted and rundown. There’s small details which make both Megatron and Starscream come off as wearied warriors who are tired and spent from years of battle and abuse. Much like the story itself, there’s more the visuals might have done to really play everything home but what’s presented gives us a nice big picture. The colors by Bove are key as they are the big differentiator between the “Shattered Glass” world and the Transformers we know.

Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 feels like the big picture tour of the “Shattered Glass” world. It teases the big picture but rushes through events. It’s an interesting miniseries focusing on a character at a time instead of focusing in on one. There’s a lot here to work with and hopefully this is just the start to something more. For those who have been excited for this, they may find it a bit lacking from what they wanted but it shows a lot of potential for many stories to come.

Who Will Be the New Sorcerer Supreme?

Debuting later this month, Death of Doctor Strange will tell the final saga in the life of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme! Written by Jed MacKay with art by Lee Garbett, this five-issue epic will not only deal with the complex mystery behind Strange’s murder, but also introduce the dangerous mystical and other-dimensional threats that will be unleashed in his absence. Who has the skills and command over the mystic arts to save the Marvel Universe? Find out in December’s Death of Doctor Strange #4 where a hero will step up to resume the duties of the Sorcerer Supreme!

Also coming in December will be two new one-shots dealing with the impact Doctor Strange’s death has on the wider Marvel Universe.

Writer Danny Lore and artist Dylann Burnett explore the consequences for Marvel’s vampire community in Death of Doctor Strange: Blade. A long time ago, Doctor Strange destroyed every vampire in the world with one spell, including Dracula. Now, with Strange dead, Dracula’s Vampire Nation celebrates! That doesn’t sit too well with Strange’s old friend, and new Vampire Nation sheriff, Blade the Vampire Hunter! But what happens when interlopers from another dimension invade the vamp’s territory and put all the bloodsuckers’ lives at risk? Will Blade do his duty to protect them? Or will he help make sure the vamps stay wiped out this time?

And mutant masterminds writer Si Spurrirer and Bob Quinn reunite in Death of Doctor Strange: X-Men/Black Knight, a crossover issue that will pick up on the aftermath of Spurrier’s critically acclaimed Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade series and recent developments in the world of the X-Men. All manner of vile extradimensional foes are invading Earth following the collapse of Doctor Strange’s magical safeguards for the planet. Dane Whitman, the Black Knight, and his daughter Jacks, now sharing the burden of the Ebony Blade with her father, ride off to confront a terrible evil attacking London – the X-MEN?! Krakoa’s greatest heroes have been transformed – but by what?! Jacks, Dane and Faiza Hussain – wielder of the mighty sword Excalibur – must team up to save the X-Men before an even deadlier threat destroys them all!

Be there on December 22 when a new Sorcerer Supreme rises in Death of Doctor Strange #4!
