The Transformers: Shattered Glass alternate reality is set to return this August courtesy of IDW Publishing with the launch of a new five-issue miniseries from writer Danny Lore (James Bond, King in Black: Captain America) and fan-favorite Transformers artists Guido Guidi and Dan Khanna.
“To this day, I’m the nerd whose heart swells when they hear Optimus Prime and Starscream’s voices,” says Lore. “As a writer, I love exploring characterization, what the core elements are that make someone who and what they are. Creating these Shattered Glass versions of childhood favorites is like building the perfect Combiner for me: what are the nuts and bolts that we can swap out while still making them recognizable?”
The official synopsis for the new miniseries reads:
In a parallel universe, a war raged across the cosmos from Cybertron to Earth… a war between Decepticon laborers-turned-freedom fighters and the power-hungry Autobot autocrats. Many kilocycles after the blue planet was devastated and the Decepticons were brought to heel, the evil Autobot bodyscrapper named Blurr hunts a new bounty… one who holds a piece of information that could reignite the war!
Transformers: Shattered Glass #1 will go on sale in August.
