Just a friendly reminder that this Saturday is “Free Comic Book Day” at comic stores across the nation, and IDW is offering a combination Transformers Animated/G.I. Joe book to celebrate the event. It will include an 11-page story from Transformers Animated, and will also contain TWO different G.I. Joe stories. From the sounds of it, one is written by Chuck Dixon and the other by Larry Hama.

Jeff Bohn continues to dig up some good stuff on DeviantArt.com…no Resolute stuff this time, but former artist for G.I. Joe: America’s Elite Mike Bear apparently also did some work on package art for Hasbro, too. Known as bear65 on Deviant Art, he’s posted some package art and other things to his page. Some of the highlights are shown below.
