Kick Ass Custom – JBL thinks “Outside the Box”

The guys over at JoeBattleLines recently held a custom contest encouraging folks to think “outside the box”.  The rules were a bit different…folks signed up for the contest, and THEN were told which character they were doing a custom of.  The results were unique to say the least, though every entry was fantastic.

As part of the prize for winning the contest, I promised to feature the first place winner here on GeneralsJoes, and I’m happy to do it.

The winner of the contest is Yoho Joe, with his entry the “Wild West Storm Shadow” and it certainly exemplifies thinking “outside the box”.  Check out the mirrored images below:

To see some more information on this great custom, definitely check out YoHo Joe’s Workshop, and to see all the great “Outside the Box” contest entries, hit up JoeBattleLines.com.

“IDW and their ‘Bro” SDCC Panel Recap

Somewhat overdue, Comic Book Resources has posted a recap of the IDW and Hasbro SDCC Panel, though honestly not much new G.I. Joe related information was revealed.  Below you can find the text of the recap, which was pulled from CBR directly.

“Schmidt nicknamed September’s “G.I.Joe Origins”#19 “Silent Crescendo” as it features a silent Snake-Eyes story by Larry Hama and Joe Benitez. Hama noted that he actually choreographed the fight sequences for the layouts with weapons from his own collection. IDW will also release a recolored reprint of the classic G.I.Joe story “Silent Interlude” with a new cover by Ashley Wood as a retailer incentive.

“G.I.Joe Origins” #20 in October by David Lapham and Werther Dell’Edera will feature “Sedition By Numbers,” a story that introduces a new character and “a horrifying insight into the Cobra organization.”

In the last week of September, IDW will publish “G.I.Joe Cobra Special” by Mike Costa and Antonio Fuso that will feature fan favorite character Erika Le Tene in “The Trial Of Erika Le Tene.” The story will pick up where the events in IDW’s “G.I.Joe: Cobra” left off while “G.I.Joe: Cobra” Issues #10 through #13 by Christos Gage, Mike Costa and Antonio Fuso finishes the Cobra Commander & Chuckles trilogy. The subsequent storyline of the series will feature the origin of the Croc-Master.

Schmidt joked that the storyline in issue #23 through #27 of the ongoing “G.I.Joe” series by Chuck Dixon and Robert Atkins would be entitled “Critical Mass…or Mass Destruction” and noted that the storyline not only concluded “Season One” of “G.I.Joe” but also introduced Storm Shadow to current Joe continuity.”

So, as I said, not a whole lot of new information, but some information, just the same.  Check out the original article over on Comic Book Resources for cover images and other little tidbits.

Joe comic book universe, and all of the details about the podcast are below.  Thanks as always to the guys there for putting out a terrific show and for keeping me in the loop!
