So That's What IDW's Revolution Is About…

Remember back in April there was a secret IDW summit called Revolution, we did a write-up about it at the time. Turns out Revolution is a cross over event that pulls together all of the Hasbro based comics into one big story: GI Joe, Transformers, M.A.S.K., Micronauts, ROM and Action Man.

Revolution is a five-part bi-weekly series written by Cullen Bunn and John Barber and drawn by Fico Ossio that starts with a world-shaking threat that brings all opposing factions together in a storyline that just might see the destruction of the universe before it can truly begin.

All the above titles will tie-in to the event including:

ROM – Co-written by Chris Ryall, Christos Gage Art by David Messina

G.I. Joe Written by Aubrey Sitterson Art by Giannis Milonogiannis

Transformers: Till All Are One Written by Mairghread Scott Art by Naoto Tsushima

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Written by James Roberts Art by Alex Milne

Transformers Written by John Barber Art by Andrew Griffith

M.A.S.K. Written by Brandon Easton Art by Tony Vargas

Action Man Written by John Barber Art by Paolo Villanelli

Micronauts Written by Cullen Bunn Art by Chris Panda

Each associated series will have its own "Revolution" one-shot that ties in to the main event. Revolution will feature an array of variant covers with stunning cover art by Brandon Peterson, Tradd Moore, John Byrne, James Biggie, Adam Riches, Guido Guidi, Ken Christensen, Art Baltazar, and more.

The first issue of Revolution will be in shops this September with issues 1 & 2 plus one-shot tie-ins (G.I. Joe, Micronauts, ROM).
