A M.A.S.K. Collector and Buying Guide For IDW's 'Revolution' Comic Series

IDW's new Revolution series is vastly approaching and we are excited to see M.A.S.K. back in action! If you plan to collect the new comics, I've put together a guide so you will know when each issue will be released and even a couple options to preorder online right now! IDW has published all the information for Revolution online through their solicitations previews. (NOTE: The new IDW M.A.S.K. series which begins publishing in November 2016 is not included in this Revolution guide.)

So when will we begin seeing M.A.S.K. in Revolution? From the official synopsis, it sounds like M.A.S.K. will be featured right from the beginning and also included on several variant covers throughout the 5-issue run of Revolution. If you want the complete background on Revolution, it has already begun! "The Road to Revolution" is slowly being executed through several comics which began in July 2016. The following checklist shows the exact issues of preview comics as well as the complete release schedule for Revolution beginning Sept 2016:

Here are the actual release dates for Revolution:

  • Revolution #1 (of 5): Sept 14, 2016
  • M.A.S.K. Revolution #1: Sept 21, 2016 (Special one-shot of M.A.S.K. origins)
  • Revolution #2 (of 5): Sept 28, 2016
  • Revolution #3 (of 5): Oct 12, 2016

So where can I preorder Revolution online? I've listed a few online comic shops below that currently offer preorder for Revolution and offer international shipping. I would implore that if you have a local comic shop, stop by and inquire about preordering Revolution there. (We would prefer that you support your local business!) However, I know that M.A.S.K. fans living outside the USA might not have that convenience and need an online source.

TFAW currently has all Revolution issues through October available for preorder at a 20% discount off the cover price. If you live near their Portland, OR store, you can opt for free in-store pickup. International shipping is available.

Midtown Comics in New York City, USA also has all Revolution issues through October available for preorder and at a 15%-35% discount. International shipping available.

My Comics Shop also has all Revolution issues through October and can be found by searching their Previews Catalog for "IDW Publishing" and "Revolution." Preorders are offered at a 35% discount but you will need to signup for an account. US and International shipping available.

Revolution has not been posted to the IDW Publishing official shop yet, but we'll update this post when they do. Please leave a comment if have any additional information to add to the above guide!
