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!

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.

Out this week alongside Optimus Prime #10, we have another IDW Publishing comic that will have been leading to the First Strike event, while also featuring the saltiest Seeker around - Skywarp. Check out below the full preview for GI Joe #8!

It’s the battle you’ve been waiting for! No, not G.I. Joe versus Cobra… it’s Snake Eyes versus Quick Kick! When Snake Eyes steps out of bounds, only Quick Kick stands in the way of the ninja commando. Who is the team’s true martial arts champion? Well, you’ve gotta read to find out!

Just read it. I like Skywarp and Rock and roll but Quick Kick is annoyingly arrogant.

The 'uncle' line, also in the preview, was great though.

Man, it was so satisfying seeing Quick Kick beat Snake Eyes. IDW Snake Eyes is the worst and I was happy to see him get his ass kicked.

By means of Bleeding Cool, we have an early solicit with no cover for a December book - which we knew was coming - featuring both Rom and Micronauts in one of the resulting team-ups that will follow the First Strike event! Written by Christos Gage and with art by Paolo Villanelli, the book will start its release (provisionally) on 13 December 2017.

Baron Karza and D’rge, the Dire Wraith sorcerer, have joined forces to carry forward their equally malignant goals-Karza desires to conquer all of Microspace (again), while the Wraiths seek to awaken their Wraith God and conquer Earth! Now it’s up to Rom and the Micronauts to form their own alliance in order to stop the evil domination of two worlds! Christos Gage (Amazing Spider-Man, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Paolo Villanelli (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) team up to bring us this all-new adventure!

An all-new Hasbro team-up event featuring your favorite Solstar Knight and the tiniest heroes around!

Written and illustrated by fan-favorite creators-writer Christos Gage and artist Paolo Villanelli!
In Shops: Dec 13, 2017
SRP: $3.99

Covers by Richard Wentworth, George Caltsoudas, Jeffrey Veregge, Guy Dorian and Sal Buscema.

But when will Dirge and D'rge team up?

You mean t'mup? Probably the Third Quarter, once they achieve Total Brand Awareness.

So the pitch for Karza and D'rge getting together in the back of some month's books was exactly that, eh?

From Paste magazine, we have some news about another upcoming First Strike consequence in IDW Publishing's, regarding the current GI Joe series (featuring Decepticon Skywarp as a member - the best member - of the team), and its rebranding after the crossover event: Scarlett's Strike Force! The interview can be read in full here, you can find a snippet below, and you can check out some concepts, cover art - and even interior art for upcoming First Strike tie-ins for MASK and GI Joe!

This December, Sitterson continues his mission with artist Nelson Daniel in a new series titled Scarlett’s Strike Force. Announced at Hasbro’s industry event Hascon today, Scarlett’s Strike Force will pit the titular character and her crew against the newly reemerged threat of Cobra Commander. Paste chatted briefly with Sitterson about the decision to relaunch G.I. Joe under a new title, Daniel’s contribution to the franchise and how the duo plan to produce “The Best Action Comic Ever.” We’ve also got an exclusive first look at interior art from this fall’s First Strike tie-in issues of G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K., both written by Sitterson and drawn by Ilias Kyriazis, as well as concept art for Scarlett’s Strike Force from Nelson Daniel.

Paste: What prompted the name change? Is there a shift in tone or mission statement with this new iteration?

Aubrey Sitterson: In the previous Joe series—by me, Giannis Milonogiannis and Lovern Kindzierski—Scarlett was the leader of a team that included not only Joes, but the Decepticon Skywarp, and in the new series, they’ll be joined by Matt Trakker of M.A.S.K. as well as another face that might be familiar to long-time fans.

So, coming out of the First Strike event, we thought it made sense for the name of the book to speak to the nature of the team. Don’t worry though—the reception to our unique take on G.I. Joe has been amazing, so there are no plans to stop giving you the bombastic, sci-fi-action-packed character drama that you deserve!

Paste: Should we expect a team shakeup or any new faces?

Sitterson: While the focus of the book will remain on the characters you know and love—including Scarlett, Roadblock, Salvo, Quick Kick and Skywarp—one of the G.I. Joe concept’s greatest strengths is its deep roster. We’ll be pulling from it, and even introducing the classic Action Man character, The Intruder, into the Hasbro Universe. Plus, our brand-new Cobra Commander has assembled an organization including Destro, Storm Shadow, Cesspool, Croc Master, Raptor and an army of new, serpentine Vipers.

So, is it possible that with Joe Colton and Sgt. Savage showing up in Revolutionaries and Duke showing up in GI Joe that Hasbro might launch books where everyone gets their own Joe team to run their own way? And then crazy 90s Savage can turn to the audience and invite us all to "Choose Yo Joe?" Please?
