M.A.S.K. Mini Comics - Issue Two "A Monster from V.E.N.O.M." - #nessie #assembleMASK #Hasbro #MASKComics

There has been a lot of speculation recently about sightings of the Loch Ness Moster - #nessie - being found on Apple Maps.  There have also been a number of stories recently that suggest that the great beast may be dead!

Well, according to M.A.S.K. Mini Comics Issue Two - we now know the REAL story of what happened to #nessie !

For a small comic, the front cover doesn't half pack a dramatic first punch!

Dusty Hayes in Gator is attempting a rescue in his Gator boat as Sly Rax enters the water in his Piranha Sub.

Meanwhile, overhead, we see Brad Turner Flying overhead in Condor!

This is a great, well drawn cover - just like the first issue.  It really draws you into the world of illusion!

Inside - our story starts off at V.E.N.O.M.'s top secret base as we see Miles Mayhem donning his Viper M.A.S.K. to attack Matt Trakker who has somehow managed to track him down.

As Mayhem's Viper Mask fires upon Matt Trakker, he informs Matt that there is no Antidote to the poison spat out from his Mask!

As Sly Rax enters the room, we discover that this isn't the real Matt Trakker - but instead just a dressed up Mannequin!  I Guess the V.E.N.O.M. Leader has to practice somehow!

Rax has a copy of news paper in his hands with the Headline - "Loch Ness Moster appears in Diablo Canyon"!  For all of those Nessie Hunters out of there, now we know where she has gone!

It would appear that our Evil V.E.N.O.M. Team have managed to capture her and transport her to Diablo Canyon.  A trap to lure in the M.A.S.K. Team to their death's.

We then see Matt Trakker and Bruce Sato in a Dinghy searching Diablo Canyon.  It strikes me as strange that they are not in a M.A.S.K. vehicle, nor do they have their Masks with them!

Anyway, the Loch Ness Monster rears out of the water causing our M.A.S.K. Duo and the occupants of another Dinghy into the water!  As Matt hits the water, he uses his M.A.S.K. watch to summon the M.A.S.K. Team to their location.

After helping the other tourists back into their Dinghy, our duo of heroes get back into their Dinghy and lure Nessie away.

Brad Turner and Dusty Hayes are back at Boulder Hill HQ and pick up on Matt's distress call and head out on Condor and Gator, respectively!

We then see Sly Rax lurking in the shadows on Piranha and discover that he has implanted a Remote Control in Nessie's Brain and is programming her to go after our M.A.S.K. team.

As Brad and Dusty reach the scene, Sly spots them and attacks!

Brad uses Condor's Anti-Matter Ray to destroy a land torpedo courtesy of Piranha!

Rax heads of under a threat that he'll get them at Diablo Canyon!

Brad takes flight in Condor to get the Canyon quicker - however, he encounters some strong winds that slow him down somewhat!

We then see a tourist trying to get a great picture of the Monster but ends up falling into the Canyon itself.  Rax uses this opportunity attack him as he knows that the M.A.S.K. team will enter the fray to save him.

Dusty enters the water in Gator's Hydroplane to go after Rax in Piranha!

After a brief battle with Rax, Dusty goes to the aid of Bruce and Matt who are still under threat from Nessie!  As he gets there, he uses Gator's Freeze Ray to freeze the water around Nessie;  trapping her fast!

Rax comes in for another attack, but a little illusion work from Brad Turner's Hocus Pocus Mask soon sends Rax on his way!

This is a great little comic that was given away with the toys.  However, I'm not too sure what then happens to Nessie - so perhaps the mystery of #nessie continues to this day....
