IDW Publishing continues to takeover Hasbro property to adapt to comic books. They started earlier with ROM followed by Micronauts and now it looks like they’ll be tackling M.A.S.K. too.
There are no solicits for the series yet but we do get some retro-goodness in the form of the artwork done by Marvel 1985 artist Tommy Lee Edwards. The book will be written by Brandon Easton with art by Tony Vargas who also did great work for the book Rot & Ruin.

Here’s what IDW had to say about the announcement for the new series…
While being mindful and respectful of the source material, the main drive behind bringing this beloved property into the new century is to preserve the old school qualities fans loved growing up, while also consciously infusing it with slightly more modern sensibilities. This is where sophisticated stories meet cutting edge designs while not afraid to look in the rearview mirror and pay tribute to its origins. It is the editorial and creative team’s intention to focus attention on the multi-cultural heritage of the show, presenting a contemporary M.A.S.K. to fans in a unique, yet familiar, way.
M.A.S.K. is scheduled for release November 2016
