Domo Arigato Mr. Robot(o): Black Mask Just Another Licensed Publisher

When did punk rock become so safe?

Black Mask Studios was once the home of indie darlings including We Can Never Go Home and Black. But releasing small critically-acclaimed books doesn't keep the lights on. Just ask IDW and Dynamite. Enter licensed comics.

Black Mask has acquired the license for Mr. Robot, a drama thriller about a group of hacktivists called "fsociety." The prequel story by series creator Sam Esmail will have scripts by Jeff McKibben and Matteo Pizzolo and art from Antonio Fuso and colorist Tyler Boss.

Not many details are public, but Black Mask told Vulture the series "will document the formation of the mysterious group known as fsociety." Vulture also says Mr. Robot is the perfect first license for Black Mask "with its anarchic worldview and Establishment-shattering ethos."

Mr. Robot airs on the USA Network, which is owned by NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group, which is owned by NBCUniversal, Inc, which is owned by the Comcast Corporation. Establishment-shattering indeed.
