IDW G.I. Joe themed solicitations for October, 2012

Along with the previews this morning, IDW also made available their solicitations for October, 2012, including a full compliment of G.I. Joe titles.  We see the fourth (and final) issue of the Danger Girl/G.I. Joe crossover as well as new issues of Cobra, G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, and of course G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.  The whole Target: Snake Eyes initiative kicks off this month as well, which actually excites me, especially if it can approach the levels of coolness we got with Cobra Command.

Of course, these releases are hitting in “Oktober” as well…  a theme you will quickly recognize in the titles below.

Good stuff all around.  Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below for the full list.
