As I mentioned earlier, Guidi’s art makes for great posters and splash pages, but in many panels comes across stiff and lifeless. In all fairness, breathing life into a decades-old franchise about sentient warring robot clans is a daunting task for even the most skilled artists and writers. Lore does an excellent job crafting the Shattered Glass universe, but ultimately, even for a lifelong fan such as myself, this issue doesn’t do much for me. If it were a one-shot, Iwouldn’t mind walking away from it now. I don’t see casual fans or fans that are new to the franchise picking up this series.
