IDW G.I. Joe Solicitations for February, 2013

The next evolution of G.I. Joe comics is upon us, and the solicitations for February, 2013 reflect this new shift.  With no new monthly Cobra or Snake Eyes titles, the IDW universe officially moves on to 2013 and beyond with the first issues of  Special Missions and the Cobra Files hitting in March and April respectively.

Check out what we can expect from the new G.I. Joe #1 as well as G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #187 after the jump.

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #187

Larry Hama (w) • S L Gallant (a & c)

Things have gotten dangerous for G.I. JOE in Benzheen: the countdown for the activation of a nuclear warhead has begun and a rescue mission led by LT. FALCON struggles to rescue a team of captured G.I. JOE members. Can the team make it out of the blast radius in time? As the clock ticks down in Benzheen, JINX has been sent on a secret mission by DUKE and HAWK… where old enemies resurface once more!

  1. Oh boy. More blue ninja stuff…. :(. Together with the boring, boring, boring Darklon storyline I’m really starting to doubt whether Hama is even trying on this book anymore.

    Odd that now I find myself looking forward more to the new re-launch title that the original American Hero. I really dig those new uniforms….I want action figures!
