The road to issue #200 continues as Larry Hama and SL Gallant keep pumping out some great looking books continuing the Marvel era. The 197th issue of this landmark series hits comic shops tomorrow and you can check out the preview below.
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #197
Larry Hama (w) • S L Gallant (a & c)
THE ROAD TO #200 CONTINUES! G.I. JOE has been set-up! As most of America’s Elite are taken prisoner in Sierra Gordo, it’s up to the few support members left behind to launch an offensive. But when COBRA realizes G.I. JOE is spread so thin, they get ready to launch an offensive of their own. This just might be G.I. JOE’s darkest hour, in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #197!

As they usually do on Cyber Monday, Amazon.com is firing up their Lightning Deals, and they feature a lot of toys in those deals today.
But what G.I. Joe fans want to keep their eyes open for is at 3:00pm Eastern when the G.I. Joe Eaglehawk hits the Lightning Deal. That’s in just over an hour. Amazon’s current price is about $32, so you’ve got to think the Lightning Deal will be for a decent chunk less.
Check out my affiliate link below and consider hitting that link at 3:00pm and grab yourself an Eaglehawk for a great price!
I would think most diehard G.I. Joe fans would own G.I. Joe: Retaliation on Blu-Ray at this point, but if you don’t have it, now is your chance.
Amazon.com has the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack for EIGHT BUCKS. Yep, just $7.99. Hit the banner below and go get it!
Yes, I know, G.I. Joe is dead at retail, but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope of some toy goodness on this Black Friday. Several online e-tailers are bringing some great deals to the table today.
Kokomo Toys – If you do want to go into a store, and you live in the Kokomo, Indiana region, hit the Kokomo Toys store and save 25% off the entire stock of items in store! If you want to take advantage of their eBay store, you can still take 10% off every item there. It’s a win-win!
Nerd Rage Toys – Having a fantastic Black Friday/Cyber Monday monster toy sale on many of their in stock items!
Amazon.com- Always with some fantastic Black Friday deals, including Boys Toys
please consider hitting up my Amazon Affiliate link to do some holiday shopping and support the site! While you’re there, pick up Pacific Rim on Blu-Ray

Entertainment Earth – A huge amount of toys and goodies and Black Friday week is bringing even more great savings!
Big Bad Toy Store – This huge online retailer has been a haven for G.I. Joe fans in recent years, and they still have a number of G.I. Joe items as well as other items in stock and on sale! Go get ‘em!
You don’t have to leave your house to enjoy some great Black Friday deals…so fire up that keyboard, and get yourself and your friends & family some great new toys.
It’s not just the big box stores and retail outlets that have Black Friday specials! Comic artist Tom Feister is blowing out some G.I. Joe prints himself today at a terrific bargain.
Over on Facebook, Mr. Feister is offering all six of his G.I. Joe prints, signed to the buyer, for $25! That is an insanely good deal for a set of terrific looking prints, taken from the covers of G.I. Joe: Origins by IDW Publishing.
Hit up his Facebook page to grab a set before they’re gone.
Big thanks to HISSTank.com for the info!
Can you even believe we’re approaching the end of the year and the holiday season already? I know this year feels a little different, at least from a G.I. Joe fan perspective, as the shelves are (mostly) bare, but perhaps that gives us time to stop and reflect on some more important things in life.
Take some time and spend it doing something you love, whether that’s spending time with family, or just appreciate what you already have instead of what isn’t available to buy.
Whatever you’re doing this time of year, give thanks. I feel the need to give thanks to all of you for continuing to stop by the site, continuing to inflate my ego with your nice words, listening to the Podcast, and just generally joining me to celebrate the best toyline that ever existed.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
New comic day tomorrow, which means a new G.I. Joe comic, and this week we’ve got the latest installment in the Special Missions series! Check out the preview below.
G.I. Joe: Special Missions #9
Chuck Dixon (w) • Jamal Igle (a) • Igle, Paul Gulacy (c)
BILDOCKER’S DAY OFF! The Special Mission Unit’s expert conniver and master scrounger wants to prove he’s got as much right to be G.I. JOE as anyone else. BILDOCKER and DIAL-TONE take off on a road trip to the Florida Everglades to cut a deal with one of his shady contacts. But what they find out in the swamp is a weapon of mass destruction auction run by COBRA! Can BILDOCKER talk himself and DIAL-TONE out of becoming gator bait?

- The SPECIAL MISSIONS team heads to the Everglades!
- Variant cover by S L Gallant!
We’re closing in on Christmas, and while I try not to do the “Support my Amazon Affiliate” thing very often, I make some exceptions around Christmas time. Mainly because Amazon offers some insanely good deals at Christmas on a lot of stuff that guys in the toy collecting scene are into.
Unfortunately there likely won’t be any new G.I. Joe related product to get excited about, but they are starting some killer video game deals even before Black Friday.
If you are so inclined, check out my Amazon Affiliate link below and pick some stuff up using it. It helps us both. :)
A big one here is Batman: Arkham City, which is a title I’ve been watching. No, it’s not the brand new “Arkham Origins” but if you’re like me and are only 16% of the way through Arkham Asylum, now’s a good time to get the next installment!
