Getting a jump on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe last year, IDW Publishing tossed all of its classic Hasbro toy properties into one calamitous mega-crossover titled Revolution, and the results were more explosive than a Saturday morning bowlful of atomic Pop-Rocks.
The five-issue event series, written by Cullen Bunn and John Barber and showcasing a gamut of gung-ho pencils by Fico Ossio, mashed up the colorful, chaotic worlds of Transformers, ROM, Action Man, M.A.S.K., G.I Joe and Micronauts The bold product from this creative team was a nostalgia-fueled assault of geeky revelry revolving around Micronauts' Baron Karza stealing the precious Ore-13 from Earth and framing the Transformers to hide his savage act to save his crumbling microverse.
Revolutionaries is an encore mini-series from IDW that lifts off where Revolution ends, kicking off a new saga featuring friends and foes both strange and familiar. Written by John Barber and matched with more superb art by Fico Ossio, two-thirds of the crew that delivered 2016's killer crossover, it's must-read material for fans of these favorite franchises, revealing a treasure of unlocked secrets hiding in the Hasbro Universe.
Here's the official solicitation synopsis:
THE REVOLUTION MAY BE OVER -- but the future is just beginning! Ripped from the pages of the hottest crossover of the year, the REVOLUTION team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action! KUP is a CYBERTRONIAN literally older than the universe; ACTION MAN is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; MAYDAY is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and BLACKROCK is a CYBERTRONIAN that thinks he's a human. It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus MAJOR BLUDD and the OKTOBER GUARD to bring this unlikely team together ... and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe.
