Transformers Shattered Glass II, #3
(W) Danny Lore (A/CA) Guido Guidi (CA) Lantana Gao (CA) Stefano Simeone (CA) Casey Coller
Slicer has been tasked with the war’s most important task: infiltrate Goldbug’s camp around Metroplex to sabotage his plans and gather information for Ultra Magnus. The bot that controls the Titan wins the war, but Slicer has bigger problems. And Soundwave gives a voice to all of them.
Awesome! The reason Latana was chosen for the line work/colors for this years BotCon Convention Comic was due to their amazing Shattered Glass work. So glad to see them get an official IDW TF gig as well!
This was planned prior to the news IDW was losing the license. They chose to move forward with the project. Nothing wrong with that.
This and Lantana's cover look so good.
I love how dynamic and vibrant this cover is!

Very nice covers.
Where the hell are the cover arts?
Yes, that's what I meant.
Not sure if Hasbro had SG "wave 2" planned before IDW stated they were loosing the tf comic license…
"Them" in this case being Hasbro, not IDW.
I believe the entire reason IDW did SG comics was because of the huge success of the SG Optimus & Ratchet set. This prompted them to try a few more, since SG is mostly easy repaints
Don't think that's how these licenses work…
SHIELD Agent 47
Haven't you been paying attention?
Shattered Glass is more likely to have been a Hasbro mandate to tie in with the toyline.
The Best of Grimlock should have more G1 Marvel US stories in it since he was a main focus at times. I hope it will be included.
Shattered Glass just looks like a last ditch cash grab before IDW loses the license. So, not for me.
