'Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook' to Include M.A.S.K. Characters and Vehicles

Beginning next month is a new 3-issue comic series by IDW Publishing titled Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook which will include M.A.S.K., Transformers, G.I. Joe, and other properties. Character biographies, new stories, posters, and even paper-crafts will be featured in each issue. A slew of IDW writers will be involved including M.A.S.K. writer Brandon Easton.

From a M.A.S.K. fan's perspective, several covers will feature characters and vehicles mixed in with other properties. It's not clear if these sourcebooks will cover the complete history or just bios from current adaptions. I've also heard through the grapevine that one of the papercraft projects in the series will be Thunder Hawk.

Here is the synopsis of all 3 issues:

ISSUE #1
