Transformers, G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K Teams Up In New Hasbro Universe' First Strike Event Series.

Transformers, G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K will team up again in the new IDW crossover event title, First Strike.

The comic books series which is set to hit stores this August, is written by Mairghread Scott & David Rodriguez, with art by Max Dunbar.




And CBR has an exclusive first look at the black and white cover story by veteran comics artist and Image Comics co-founder Whilce Portacio. Which you can see below.


The cover will be published as retailer incentive covers for issues #1, #3 and #5 of First Strike. The covers will be available for retailers who order 50 copies or more of each First Strike #1 and #2.

“One man attempts to dominate, one woman stands against him,” Mairghread Scott said in a statement to CBR. “Watch as Scarlett leads her G.I. Joes on a daring mission to save all of Cybertron from their gravest threat yet. First Strike is a fast-paced, hard-hitting, and deeply personal character story set against the backdrop of intergalactic war with all the giant robots, cyborg ninjas, and massive explosions you could ask for.”

An year after the Autobots, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., Rom, Action Man and the Micronauts stopped fighting each other and joined forces together to foil the conspiracy orchestrated by Miles Mayhem, Baron Karza and the Dire Wraiths, Earth is finally ready to join as an official member of Cybertron's Council of Worlds, but a newly-revived Cobra led by Baron Ironblood wants to prevent that from happening by destroying every last one of the Transformers at any cost. Now, Optimus Prime, Scarlett and the other heroes must team-up once again to fight this new treat and save both worlds.

First Strike is the sequel to 2016's Revolution event in IDW's Hasbro Universe. First Strike #1 is scheduled for release on Aug. 9, and will run for six issues in a twice-monthly shipping schedule.
