G.I. Joe Solicitations from IDW Publishing – May, 2014

We’re on the verge of some huge events in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #200, and with Paul Allor wrapping up his run on G.I. Joe, what’s up next for our American Heroes?

Turns out… not a whole heck of a lot.  :(

May solicitations have hit from IDW Publishing, and we have one title on the list.  G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #202 throws us back into the RAH world, but as of this moment, there doesn’t appear to be a main IDW-verse G.I. Joe title on the list.  We knew that Paul Allor’s run would last for four issues (which should wrap in April) but there is currently no apparent heir to that G.I. Joe throne.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t a plan in place, but apparently that plan will not involve the month of May.

I’ve reached out to IDW to see if I can figure out what’s up, but until I get a response, check out the solicitations for May, 2014 after the jump.

  1. Transformers vs. GI Joe #0 is out that month for Free Comic Book Day and that’s supposed to be an ongoing series as well.

    I don’t know, splitting the IDW continuity with two mediocre books and one pretty good book always seemed a little silly to me. One good title for the IDW continuity, one for the original continuity, and one for an off the wall concept seems better balanced.

  2. I’ve been told that IDW is taking a break from their main continuity for a little while in the Spring before giving us some new stuff. Only Hama’s series will be coming out for a couple of months.
