Many folks have seen that the main G.I. Joe title from IDW Publishing has been noticeably absent from recent solicitation lists, and the rumors were circling that the book might be going the way of “Cobra” and “Special Missions”.
I reached out to Chris Ryall, Editor in Chief at IDW Publishing, and received the following reply:
“…the main title and Cobra are taking a small break. But will be back in a big way with a new team for THE FALL OF G.I. JOE. Coming, of course, this fall.”
So, this is pretty cool news. Not only does this indicate that the main G.I. Joe title is going to be returning, but we’re going to be getting another Cobra book as well at some point this fall.
Meanwhile throughout the summer we can focus on A Real American Hero and Transformers and G.I. Joe. I’m very glad to hear this. Fred Van Lente’s work on the main title had been pretty fun, and Allor’s two follow ups so far were no exception to that either… so I’m looking forward to seeing where things pick up this fall. Mr. Ryall also mentioned that they would be discussing this in more depth soon, so expect more information to come.
Big thanks to him for his response! For G.I. Joe comics fans, I would also encourage you to visit IDWPublishing.com and share the G.I. Joe comic love. Make sure you get some letters in there for Postbox: The Pit while you’re at it.
