Transformers Collectors Club officially reveals FSS 3.0 Serpent O.R.

While most (if not all) of us saw the Serpent O.R. reveal from Botcon a few months ago, yesterday, the TFCC made it even more official and released the images of their upcoming FSS 3.0 entry for Serpent O.R. Based on the character from the Devils Due G.I. Joe vs. Transformers: The Art of War limited series, this figure looks pretty nice! It will be very interesting to see how his story intertwines with Marissa Fairborne. IDW writer Jim Sorenson recently revealed on Facebook that he was writing the bio’s for each figure, so there is certain to be some interesting back story here.

Check out the figure below, and make sure to check out TransformersClub.com to join FSS 3.0, time is running out!

Preview for IDW Publishing G.I. Joe: ARAH #206

New comic day tomorrow! While we still have a little while to wait for the new #1 issue of Karen Traviss’ take on G.I. Joe, tomorrow brings us another installment in the fantastic G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero continuation by Larry Hama and SL Gallant.

I can tell from the preview that this is going to be a fun one. Some definite shades of old school Marvel greatness in these first few pages. Check out the preview and details below.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #206

With Torpedo’s team barely escaping their mission with their lives, G.I. JOE takes a moment to honor the mission’s sole casualty. But COBRA gives the Real American Hero team no time to rest as they move their latest nefarious plot forward. Never a dull moment in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #206!

The World will always need G.I. Joe – A new direction by IDW

The World Will Always Need G.I. Joe
Karen Traviss Leads A Bold New Series

GIJOE_s401_cvr2

San Diego, CA (August 27, 2014) – Acclaimed British military science-fiction author Karen Traviss reignites the G.I. JOE franchise with an all-new series. Filled with the kind of gritty realism fans of the author have come to expect, this new take on G.I. JOE is guaranteed to please followers of the classic property and comic readers experiencing it for the first time.

The world has changed and so must G.I. JOE—lead by Scarlett, the once-revered G.I. JOE team faces an unthinkable reality where Cobra has become an unlikely peacekeeping taskforce. Utilizing real-world dangers and politics, this is a G.I. JOE comic the likes of which has never been seen.

“Karen understands the world of men and women in the military,” says IDW Senior Editor John Barber. “She gets what their reality is like—which is why she’s held in such high regard by veterans, as well as fans of character-driven action.

Traviss guides an all-star squad of talent on this monthly series starting with fan-favorite artist Steve Kurth on interior art. With a keen eye for design, Jeffery Veregge provides striking covers to the series. The first issue will feature a subscription variant cover by Cliff Chiang.

“When John [Barber] asked me to write the series, it was one of those spooky coincidences,” said Traviss. “I’d literally just finished writing a scene for my new novel, GOING GREY, where two of the characters – vets now serving as private military contractors – discuss whether having G.I. Joe and Action Man as boys, influenced their choice of career. G.I. Joe is still that iconic after 50 years, because it’s about people, and it’s never shied away from the human reality of warfare. I’m genuinely delighted to have the chance to work on the franchise.”

Look for this new series to infiltrate comic shops this September, and follow IDW Publishing on facebook.com/idwpublishing and @idwpublishing for more news and updates!

IDW Solicitations for November, 2014

At least partly.

The majority of the images and details for November’s G.I. Joe releases has been revealed by IDW Publishing, though they didn’t post the retail cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #208 and I don’t see anything for Transformers vs. G.I. Joe.

As for the rest of it, check out the list below… in spite of myself, I’m getting excited for the next new iteration of the main G.I. Joe title, and of course, Real American Hero continues to blow me away. Click the “Continue Reading” link to check out the full solicitation list.
