    Hi!

    A new arrival this week - Transformers Timelines: Shattered Glass!

    [​IMG]

    To those who don't know already - probably not that many, but you never know - it's a look at the TF equivalent of the mirror universe - where the Autobots are evil, the Decepticons are good, the faction logos are the opposite colour, and a visitor from a 'regular' 'verse finds himself caught between a maniacal Optimus Prime, and a Megatron who wishes that "Peace will come for all Cybertronians"!

    [​IMG]


    The mag also comes with a pair of character profiles, as well as a three-page spoof which once served as an April Fool gag to, well... shatter expectations!

    Anyone else get it yet?

    My comic guy pulled it for me, but since I have the BotCon one I just put it back on the shelves.

    Is this different from the botcon one? It's a joke? I don't get it!

    It's not a joke. The only joke was that included the "leaked preview" that was an April fool's joke, along with the real story.

    To clarify, this release includes the Shattered Glass story, profiles for both SG Rodimus and Starscream, and the three-page Shattered Expectations gag piece.

    I got it today and I really enjoyed the story. The comic itself was indeed pricey for what it is though.

    Yeah it´s good. A nice comic IMO. I wonder how Shattered Glass Devastator would look like.

    I didn't know this was available outside the Botcon channel.
    I'll have to look for it.

    If by "comic itself" you mean the art then yes, Don's work is ALWAYS good.


    The story wasn't half bad either.:tongue:

    I don't know, IDW charges $4 for their comics, which you have to buy every month to follow the story, and then you have to buy the trade for the 2 extra pages of material. And Don Figueroa art, come on!

    I guess when you think about it like that as a stand alone comic, but I paid £5 for it though when every other IDW comic is about £2.40.

    Pretty comic but mirror universes are a more worn-out sci-fi stereotype than sexy girl aliens who learn the meaning of Earth Love.

    No, there was only a flimsy backstory that dumped Classics Cliffjumper into this universe.
