The first thing that comes to mind when I see that the Joe A Day blog is celebrating their second anniversary is how the hell is he still sane? Rob from Joe A Day continues to plow ahead featuring one G.I. Joe figure per day every single day for eternity. Go Rob!
To celebrate his second anniversary, Rob brought in some G.I. Joe illuminaries (and me, too) to talk about the G.I. Joe property and Joe A Day’s place in the online G.I. Joe lexicon.
Join myself, Gary, and Mike from What’s on Joe Mind as well as Dave from Flag Points on a special podcast, and check out all the other contributors over on Joe A Day.
It was a lot of fun, and I still can’t believe Rob’s been sticking it out for this long. Keep it up, Rob! As long as you’re doing it, I don’t have to.

Thanks to the long hard work by guys like Mark Bellomo, Larry Hama and the talented folks at IDW, the Marvel era of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero has never been treated better than it is being treated now. Not just because of the fantastic Real American Hero title that is kicking ass every single month, but also IDW’s pure willingness to go back in time and collect every Marvel issue into one cohesive “Complete Collection”. This Complete Collection includes not just the regular Marvel releases, but the Special Missions, Yearbooks, and even Comic Pack comics, all in chronological order!
Mark has poured his blood, sweat and tears into bringing these titles together, and it really shows. But, you know, if you’re going to invest in a Marvel “Complete Collection” you might as well go all the way. Along with their regular releases, IDW Publishing is also releasing IDW Limited Special Editions featuring the Marvel Complete collection.
I got my hands on Volume 1 of the “Red Label” edition of IDW Limited Marvel Complete Collection, and after I got done getting my mind blown, I wrote up a review. Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below to check it out.
EDIT – Argh. That’ll teach me to write the post before actually tracking down an iOS device to check myself… apparently the game is out for iOS… in select International markets only. Oops.
I would imagine that means release is fairly imminent, though. Keep checking back!
The moment that Apple users have been waiting for… G.I. Joe: Battleground has now appeared in the App Store for iOS!
At the moment, it still just appears to be available Internationally in the Google Play store for Android, but one would imagine that will change fairly soon. Some people around the world have had a chance to start playing this game already, and reviews so far have been pretty positive.
You iPhone and iPad users, join the fun!

Well, it’s not quite the three issue onslaught we got a couple of weeks ago, but any new comic day with new G.I. Joe to read is a good new comic day. Check out the preview for G.I. Joe: Special Missions #4 below.

CRUSH DEPTH concludes! The handpicked G.I. JOE team takes on a hazardous mid-ocean assault in the middle of a violent tropical storm system.

And dropping right into the middle of this perfect storm is a unit of SERPENTOR’s fanatical Coil assassins. Will the Special Missions team play both sides against the middle or be caught in a deadly vice of intrigue?
