Following last year’s Revolution event comes the next step in IDW and Hasbro’s gargantuan comic crossover accomplishments.

FIRST STRIKE,  A Hasbro Comic Event, is nearly upon us, and the fine folks at Blastr are kicking up the excitement with a sneak peek at the first eleven covers set to come out of this series!

“The latest literary intermingling of Hasbro properties is coming this summer from writers Mairghread Scott and David Rodriguez, with art by Max Dunbar. Titled First Strike, this will be a splashy, bi-weekly series from IDW beginning in August that tosses Transformers, GI Joe and M.A.S.K.into a cosmic rumble against Baron Ironblood, the villainous foe from Action Force, the British counter-terrorism squad equivalent of G.I. Joe.” Blastr
