G.I. Joe Season 4 #1 Preview

Tomorrow marks the debut of the fourth “season” of an ongoing G.I. Joe title by IDW Publishing. Unlike what many folks out there are claiming, this is NOT a reboot, it’s simply a jump forward in time and continuation of the last ongoing G.I. Joe title. IDW numbers these series like television seasons, so if you think of this as the fourth season of an ongoing G.I. Joe television show, it falls into place a little better.

Check out the preview below.

G.I. JOE #1 
Karen Traviss (w) • Steve Kurth (a) • Jeffrey Veregge (c)
DOES THE WORLD NEED G.I. JOE? Cobra had become an international peacekeeping force… and the future of G.I. JOE looks bleak. SCARLETT leads what’s left of America’s ultimate fighting force—but will she be able to keep hew team together? Real-world action and politics collide… and nothing will be the same.

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.

IDW Publishing G.I. Joe #15 Preview

Tomorrow marks the final issue in the latest run of IDW’s main G.I. Joe title, with a promised relaunch coming this fall entitled (unironically) “The Fall of G.I. Joe”.  It’s not a rebooting of continuity, though, in my understanding, simply the next stage in IDW’s G.I. Joe mythology.

Until then, check out the preview for G.I. Joe #15, which hits stores tomorrow.
