EXCLUSIVE: It's Destro vs. Rom as IDW's Hasbro Heroes Collide in New Covers

Last fall, IDW Publishing's "Revolution" event brought together several of its licensed Hasbro properties -- "Transformers," "G.I. Joe," "M.A.S.K.," "ROM," "Micronauts" and "Action Man" -- into a shared universe that shaped the comic book future of those properties going forward.

A new ongoing series titled "Revolutionaries" launched today from the creative team of writer John Barber and artist Fico Ossio, with a team of characters from across the shared Hasbro universe, including Kup from Transformers and Mayday from G.I. Joe. With this new series now on the stands, CBR jumps ahead a few months with the exclusive first look at the covers for April's "Revolutionaries" #5, along with solicitation text for the issue.

But that's not all! A different take on the Hasbro crossover will unfold in the five-issue "Revolution: Aw Yeah!" miniseries, with Art Baltazar -- known for his collaborations with Franco on acclaimed all-ages comics such as "Tiny Titans' -- bringing his distinct style to the Hasbro characters. CBR has the first look at the cover to April's issue #3, which includes a face-off between Destro and ROM, along with the solicitation text.
