Tales from Castle Destro Volume I – Mercenary War

As the head of the Military Armaments Research Syndicate (MARS), Laird James McCullen Destro XXIII is the world’s foremost weapons developer. His private army of elite mercenaries, known as the Iron Grenadiers, is a force feared around the world. But when a mysterious enemy begins targeting MARS interests with impunity, it will take more than a fearsome reputation if the Iron Grenadiers are to survive.

Sun Prairie, WI – March 10th, 2012 – What do you do when you’re disappointed by what you perceive as a distinct shortage of G.I. Joe fiction? Don Maue decided to try writing his own! In October of 2011, he started work on a short story dealing with Iron Grenadier characters. That short story quickly turned into the basis for a fan-fiction blog. Tales from Castle Destro Volume I – Mercenary War is a collection of the first twenty-two chapters published at Don’s blog.

Don Maue is an avid collector and customizer of G.I. Joe toys. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife and two children. This is his first e-book.

ISBN: 978-1-4658-4204-6

Henry Jackman will score G.I. Joe: Retaliation

This news initially hit late last month, but for some reason it slipped by my radar.  Thanks to Twitter follower ToyCollector962 for linking me to a source and reminding me about it!  Henry Jackman, who wrote the score for X-Men: First Class last year will also be scoring G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
