From the article –
“In ‘Revolution,’ we united our Hasbro comic book titles into one shared universe,” said IDW Editor-in-Chief David Hedgehog. “In ‘First Strike,’ we see what it’s like to live in the shadows of a massively powerful, ancient, alien race that has been warring with itself for millions of years and, in doing so, has brought death and destruction to every planet it has touched.”
We’ve mirrored the covers here for your viewing pleasure. What are your thoughts on this upcoming event? Planning on picking them up, or are you skipping First Strike all together? Sound off after the break!
