IDW Introduces “Revolution Event” Bringing Many Hasbro Properties Together

idw logoIDW Publishing has unveiled its most ambitious comic book publishing venture in its history revolving around its fan-favorite titles based on Hasbro properties.

The “Revolution” event marks the birth of a comic book crossover that will be comprised of not only the TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE properties, but also all-new properties MICRONAUTS, ROM, and ACTION MAN, as well as the launch of a long-awaited M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand series.

This is not a reboot—rather, the Revolution series takes many of the building blocks of what has come before from IDW and builds on them anew, bringing all these elements together in an epic event that results in an all-new status quo for all involved. Everything fans have enjoyed up to this point remains intact as part of this ongoing continuity. The ramifications of Revolution will extend well beyond the event, as all of these iconic characters will henceforth exist in the same universe, altering the scope of IDW editorial in all the Hasbro series from this moment onward.

Revolution, the bi-weekly five-issue event series that launches this initiative, will be co-written by Cullen Bunn (MICRONAUTS) and John Barber (TRANSFORMERS) with art by Fico Ossio (MICRONAUTS). The event kicks off with a world-shaking threat that brings all opposing factions together in a storyline that just might see the destruction of the universe before it can truly begin!

All aforementioned titles will tie-in to the event with a bevy of talent on board including:

  • ROM
    • Co-written by Chris Ryall (Onyx), Christos Gage (Marvel’s Daredevil)
    • Art by David Messina (Star Trek)

G.I. Joe

    • Written by Aubrey Sitterson (Street Fighter X G.I. JOE)
    • Art by Giannis Milonogiannis (Prophet)

Transformers: Till All Are One

  • Written by Mairghread Scott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, TRANSFORMERS)
  • Art by Naoto Tsushima (TRANSFORMERS)

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye

  • Written by James Roberts (TRANSFORMERS)
  • Art by Alex Milne (TRANSFORMERS)

Transformers

  • Written by John Barber (Back to the Future)
  • Art by Andrew Griffith (TRANSFORMERS)

M.A.S.K.

  • Written by Brandon Easton (Marvel’s Agent Carter, TRANSFORMERS: Deviations)
  • Art by Tony Vargas (Rot & Ruin)

Action Man

  • Written by John Barber (TRANSFORMERS)
  • Art by Paolo Villanelli (G.I. JOE: SNAKE EYES)

Micronauts

  • Written by Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men)
  • Art by Chris Panda

And many more!
“The Revolution series builds out of a detail that was introduced in IDW’s first-ever issue ofTRANSFORMERS in 2005,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer, Chris Ryall. “So to finally be able to build upon the various story elements we’ve seeded over the years, and which come into play in a big way starting with July’s ROM #1 even before the launch of Revolution, is a blast. We’ve been working toward a full-fledged universe for some time and it’s great fun to be able to finally bring it to vivid life, especially since it allows us to give the world new titles like the very-requested M.A.S.K., as well as some exciting new books still to be announced.”

“We’ve done plenty of crossovers in the past,” said Michael Kelly, Head of Global Publishing at Hasbro, “but nothing near this scope or scale. Our heroes, whether they are from Earth or from distant reaches of the galaxy, all have one thing in common: their powers and abilities are based primarily on technology. We have been able to use this fact to build a natural and believable link between all of these disparate characters. The result is a complex and dynamic world where all manner of conflicts and team-ups can and will exist. If you are a fan of Hasbro’s brands, your time is now.”

As Revolution rolls out, each associated series will receive its own “Revolution” one-shot that ties in to the main event. Revolution will feature an array of variant covers with stunning cover art by Brandon Peterson, Tradd Moore, John Byrne, James Biggie, Adam Riches, Guido Guidi, Ken Christensen,Art Baltazar, and more.

Nothing will be the same after the Revolution erupts this September with issues 1 & 2 plus one-shot tie-ins (G.I. JOE, MICRONAUTS, ROM) all available to order together. Take a stand!

Two Additional SDCC Exclusives from NECA – Headknockers Spider-Gwen Unmasked and X-Force Deadpool

SDCC 2016 logoWith all the Turtle-mania earlier today, it was easy to miss that NECA announced two additional SDCC exclusive Headknocker bobble heads – an unmasked Spider-Gwen and an X-Force uniform Deadpool.

Unmasked Spider-Gwen

LIMITED EDITION OF 500. Add some head-bobbling fun to your shelf with this SDCC-exclusive unmasked version of Marvel’s Spider-Gwen! As a teenager, Gwen Stacy went to a demonstration on radioactivity and was bitten by a mutated spider. The bite transformed her, granting her amazing powers: a precognitive awareness of danger, adhesive fingertips and toes, and the proportional speed and strength of a spider. To the residents of New York, she is the dangerous vigilante called Spider-Woman, but we know her as Spider-Gwen! Figure stands approximately 8” tall and is made of cold-cast resin that’s hand painted for amazing detail.

She can be pre-ordered for pick up at SDCC here.

X-Force Deadpool

LIMITED EDITION OF 500. Add some head-bobbling fun to your shelf with this SDCC-exclusive version of Deadpool in his black and gray costume from Marvel’s X-Force! Possibly the most skilled mercenary in the world… and definitely the most annoying. The joke-cracking, reference-making, fourth-wall-breaking, taco-eating funnyman of the cold-blooded killer set, Deadpool has long skirted the line between hero and villain, between maniac and genius, between ugly and smelly. Figure stands approximately 8” tall and is made of cold-cast resin that’s hand painted for amazing detail.

X-Force Deadpool can be pre-ordered for SDCC pick up here.
