Joining other recent Hasbro additions to the IDW Publishing slate, ROM and Micronauts, M.A.S.K. will become the latest property to receive its own comic series.
The fans have spoken and so by popular demand, M.A.S.K. will hit comic shops later this year from the creative team of writer Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter, Transformers: Deviations) and artist Tony Vargas (Rot & Ruin, TMNT: Shadows of the Past Board Game).
“We are so proud to be able to continue growing the impressive relationship between IDW Publishing and Hasbro with this new M.A.S.K. comic series,” said IDW Managing Editor David Hedgecock. “We can’t wait to bring the high-octane, unique, brand of storytelling to this book that we know fans of M.A.S.K. will expect!”
While being mindful and respectful of the source material, the main drive behind bringing this beloved property into the new century is to preserve the old school qualities fans loved growing up, while also consciously infusing it with slightly more modern sensibilities. This is where sophisticated stories meet cutting edge designs while not afraid to look in the rearview mirror and pay tribute to its origins. It is the editorial and creative team’s intention to focus attention on the multi-cultural heritage of the show, presenting a contemporary M.A.S.K. to fans in a unique, yet familiar, way.
“We’ve had tremendous success with IDW over the years in re-launching classic brands for a contemporary audience, while still paying appropriate homage to their origins,” said Michael Kelly, Head of Global Publishing at Hasbro. “We are thrilled to welcome a new team to this library of heroes, as M.A.S.K. joins the ranks of JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS, MICRONAUTS, and THE TRANSFORMERS.”
M.A.S.K. launches this November as an ongoing series featuring cover art by the multi-talented Tommy Lee Edwards. To hold you over until then, this new era of Hasbro titles has already begun with Micronauts #1 on sale now and ROM #0 kicking off on Free Comic Book Day on May 7.
