Phil Kost over at had a chance to talk with Andy Schmidt and got together a fantastic Q & A session with the IDW editor who is responsible for nearly all of the G.I. Joe  books produced.
The conversation ranges from the ARAH continuation by Larry Hama, to the status of the Trade Paperbacks, and touches on many new projects that are waiting in the wings.

IDW October Solicitations reveal Renegades Comic from IDW

IDW Publications has revealed their comic solicitations for October just in time for SDCC, and there are some interesting news nuggets to be had.
First and foremost is the beginning of a G.I. Joe: Renegades comic based on the animated series starting this fall!  Excellent.  That is probably the thing I’m most looking forward to at SDCC…more info about Renegades.
Also of note is the cover for the October issue of the main G.I. Joe title.  Up until now, Storm Shadow has been notable by his unexplained absence throughout the title, but apparently that’s going to change very soon…  also, it looks as though G.I. Joe #23 will finally debut Helix in the mainstream G.I. Joe book.

A big thanks to The Terror Drome for gathering this info so I could get it posted more easily while on the road this morning.

GeneralsJoes Reviews IDW's G.I. Joe #18

I know I haven’t been posting many reviews lately for the IDW titles, even though I’ve been enjoying them much more than I had recently.  I figured I should change that for G.I. Joe #18.  Written by Chuck Dixon with art by SL Gallant, the main G.I. Joe title started off quite slowly, and has taken a while to build…but it has been building.
