IDW G.I. Joe Solicitations for September, 2012

IDW has just supplied us with solicitation information for G.I. Joe titles hitting comic shops in September!  I’ll tell you I’m extremely excited to see what’s going to happen in the Real American Hero universe based on what we’re seeing here, which features a fan favorite character… a couple of them, actually.

Also, even thought it’s not strictly G.I. Joe related, I was excited to see a Transformers: Art of Fall of Cybertron collection featuring art from the extremely cool video game series…not only that, but written by long time G.I. Joe scribe and personal friend of GeneralsJoes Mark Bellomo!  That should be a great item to check out come September.  Also in September begins the “G.I. Joe Complete Collection” series which endeavors to gather together all of the Marvel G.I. Joe issues into a series of comprehensive volumes!  That should be a fantastic collection to keep an eye out for as well.

Check out the Read the Rest of this Entry link below to see the full blown solicitation list.

  1. I’d totally bite on the complete collection if I hadn’t spent the past 3 years collecting the trades IDW has been putting out.

  2. Hardcover is nice and all but $50 for what seems to be around 13 issues is a little steep considering I have all the actual issues and the Marvel TPBs.
