MASK (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) Returns Today!


Fans of the long-running MASK strips in British comics may want to check out this new incarnation from IDW

M.A.S.K. is back thanks to IDW, written by Brandon Easton, with art by Tony Vargas and cover artist Tommy Lee Edwards

Launching from the events of IDW’s REVOLUTION! five-issue mini series, which concludes this week, the M.A.S.K. team streaks into a dangerous, unstable landscape of dark wars, high intrigue and non-stop action where they’ll encounter the nearly unstoppable threat of Miles Mayhem and his black ops squadron known as V.E.N.O.M.

How will an untested Matt Trakker lead M.A.S.K. through a complex new world order where nothing is what it seems?

Join writer Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter), artist Tony Vargas (Rot and Ruin) and cover artist Tommy Lee Edwards for an exciting 21st century spin on the classic series where “illusion is the ultimate weapon!”

Part of the new Hasbro shared universe torn from the pages of Revolution!, the new M.A.S.K. – which will surely appeal to those of you who remember the long-running British M.A.S.K. comics – features variant covers by Sonny Liew (Dr. Fate) and Paul Pope and every issue will include special back-up material in every issue written by Tommy Lee Edwards.
