I think. They've been hinting at Visionaries for a bit now; mostly keeping it to GI Joe but now it's seemingly leaking into MASK. It kind of irritates me because it's another example of the Hasbro universe properties moving way too fast for their own good and shoving in crossovers and even more franchises everywhere rather than taking the time to develop their own unique identities.

G.I. JOE, Vol. 1
Aubrey Sitterson (w) • Giannis Milonogiannis (a) • Ariel Olivetti (c)
G.I. JOE finds a new role in a world of globalization, TRANSFORMERS and aliens! After the events of REVOLUTION, the G.I. JOE team returns to the fray and their mission has become a global one–leading the charge against invading TRANSFORMERS and other aliens. But when a US military defense base goes dark, Scarlett has reason to suspect that these enemy forces may have infiltrated G.I. JOE. It's up to her, Roadblock, Rock 'n Roll, Quick Kick, Wild Bill, and Shipwreck to move in and root out any traitors before the facility falls into the wrong hands! Collects issues #1–4 and the G.I. JOE: Revolution one-shot.
TPB • FC • $19.99 • 120 pages • ISBN: 978-1-63140-913-4

What I thought was an Inhumanoids tease in GI Joe just turned out to be Fatal Fluffies, so not sure anymore. Maybe with Marvel doing Inhumans as a focus they backed off so as not to appear too copy-cat? Just speculating.

For your latter points, yes. Dead on. Some of these books are hitting their stride just in time to end.

MASK never hit a stride. It fell face first at the start and every time it tries to get up it somehow digs itself deeper.

Previews for IDW Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook #2 and #3

Thanks to fellow board member Daniel Adkins, as he's just provided us with links to previews for the upcoming Hasbro Heroes Sourcebooks -- issues #2 and #3! Put up on the websites Comic Crusaders and Comic Book Resources respectively, most of the profiles shown here do feature characters from franchises like G.I. Joe and Micronauts; but rest assured, our favourite Cybertronians do have their own bios within these pages. Also of note is that like Issue #1, Issue #2 has a mini-comic as previewed here; but Issue #3 unfortunately seems to not follow suit. Nevertheless, take a look at the previews below and tell us what you think in the forums!

IDW Hasbro Universe - 3-Page Preview for GI Joe #8 - #TCJHU

Postby ScottyP » Thu Aug 17, 2017 6:57 pm

Weapon: Battle Blades
Another preview for an August 30th Hasbro Universe comics release from IDW Publishing is now available on iTunes, this one being for GI Joe #8. While it doesn't feature any Skywarp, the driver of our coverage of The Crown Jewel Of The Hasbro Universe, that's ok because we're pretty sure that would render the ninja fight/"sparring contest" between Quick Kick and Snake Eyes seen in the pages below a rather pointless affair. Enjoy the preview and look for this issue at your local comic shop in about two weeks' time.

Cocky much? I like Quick Kick, but assume Snake Ryes will own him in the end. I would happily surprised if QK won though, albeit after a good beating.

Really looking forward to this issue, for the Quick Kick/Snake Eyes fight and to find out Rock 'n Roll's fate.

And Skywarp, because Skywarp.

The interior art is so falsely advertised from its cover. It's amateurish. Including incomplete faces, backgrounds, and color errors (Snake Eyes goes from fingered gloves to fingers in one panel) is so unexceptionable for Hasbro crown jewel.

The interior artist does have a cover for this issue (there are 4 total), I just picked one that wasn't theirs for the news story thumbnail. Why? Because those Tom Whalen variant covers are awesome :)

Figured this might interest a few people. I recently got the chance to talk with Brandon Easton, writer of M.A.S.K. and Transformers: Deviations, on my podcast Action and Adventure. Easton is a life-long Transformers fan, and we talked about our shared TF fandom, how he got the job on TF: Deviations, and the development of the M.A.S.K. book.
