Week of 9/29:
Shattered Glass #2 - I've always thought SG had potential as a concept, but outside of Shattered Expectations, never really took to it. I think it either needs to be played as fully over the top, tongue in cheek, or needs to be a really thoughtful look at what these characters would look like in a swapped situation. Instead most of it just feels generic, just with the names swapped. #1 really suffered from this, I think, and felt rather pointless. This one is an improvement in that regard, as some of the Megatron/Starscream stuff actually does feel like those two characters as good guys. That said, things are still moving pretty slowly and aren't super interesting. Might be dropping this one in a couple issues. I do love the homage covers though so far.
Halloween Special - decent one-shot, and was pleasantly surprised it was set in the current (2019) universe. The ending sputtered a bit, but it was some nice insight into Starscream's character and backstory. Him getting to go on naturalist expeditions with Cryak is a good spin on his 'scientist' background he had in the original cartoon.
