On today’s Near Mint, we’re reviewing IDW’s First Strike: A crossover event of all your favorite Hasbro properties in a new shared universe fueled by 80’s Toy Nostalgia!

IDW has had some great success in several comic properties based on famed 80’s toylines, like Transformers and GI Joe, so it’s only natural to attempt to cram in as many other IPs as possible, including Rom the Space Knight, M.A.S.K, and Action Man.
Does it work?
Oh boy. You’ll have to listen to find out! Spoilers abound!
