The Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook is a three issue limited series published by IDW Publishing in 2017 featuring profiles of the various characters of the Hasbro Universe. Continuing the style of profiles that were first seen as back up material in the Revolution miniseries, the profiles are written by the writers of the character's respective series and provide a brief synopsis of their adventures up to that point along with various other biographical information and illustrations provided by a variety of artists. Each issue also contains a short comic story, papercraft projects, and a dual sided pin-up that showcases that issues characters on one side and a map of a Hasbro Universe location on the other.

Notes[edit]

  • Originally solicited for May, this book ended up being officially released in June.
  • Baron Daegon's entry spells his name "Daigon" as it was written when he first appeared in Micronauts #2, rather than the later used "Daegon."

Notes[edit]

  • As part of the ongoing series of delays that have plagued IDW's books throughout 2017, this book arrived late in the first week of August rather than in June as was originally solicited.
  • Digital versions of this issue contain a "Digital Ashcan" for Aw Yeah Revolution! issue 1.
  • Grimlock is depicted in his normal G1 design rather than his similar but distinctive IDW design.
