M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand

M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand is a 2016-2017 ongoing comic series published by IDW Publishing, based on the 1985 Kenner toyline. The series began with a one-shot tie in to the Revolution event, followed by a number one issue. The series centers on Matt Trakker and the M.A.S.K. paramilitary team as they battle against Miles Mayhem and his black ops squad V.E.N.O.M.. Following the First Strike crossover, M.A.S.K. merged with G.I. Joe and relaunched as Scarlett’s Strike Force.

General Miles “Mayhem” Manheim runs Project Spectrum, a classified program designed to train participants to combat threats to the Earth. Project Spectrum’s recruits are outfitted with special Masks that not only grant the wearer special abilities, but allow them to control vehicles that can transform from normal-looking cars and motorcycles to advanced battle modes. A group of Spectrum recruits consisting of Matthew Trakker, Julio Lopez, Gloria Baker, and Brad Turner are put together as the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, while Vanessa Warfield, Sylvester Rax, and Bruno Sheppard are recruited for… another team.

M.A.S.K. is written by Brandon Easton with pencils by Tony Vargas and colors by Jordi Escuin. Tommy Lee Edwards provides covers for the series, as well as backmatter for each issue.
