M.A.S.K. Takes Flight in the New IDW Series!
M.A.S.K. captured a lot of kid’s imagination about ordinary vehicles that turned into either a weapon of destruction or to save lives. Every episode during its first season was a gem for those who where amazed about the toys.
Of course the abbreviated meaning of M.A.S.K. is Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, which battles its nemesis in V.E.N.O.M. that also mean Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem. The toy line lasted from 1985 to 1988 producing a slew of toys based on vehicles and playsets. But the animated series lasted for two season, where it start to wane where they introduced the race-related theme abandoning the original concept of fighting crime to racing.
But still be mindful and respectful of the source material that made the series popular and will definitely preserve the old school qualities fan appreciate seeing growing up at the same time infusing it with slightly modern sensibilities.
M.A.S.K. launches this November as an ongoing series featuring cover art by the multi-talented Tommy Lee Edwards. To hold you over until then, this new era of Hasbro titles has already begun with Micronauts #1 on sale now and ROM #0 kicking off on Free Comic Book Day on May 7.
