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.

Three pages from upcoming Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #1 by IDW

Thanks to Entertainment News International for cluing us in to the fact that Apple’s iBook Store has posted a few pages from the upcoming first issue of Transformers vs. G.I. Joe by John Barber and Tom Scioli. I know it’s a style that isn’t for everyone, but I didn’t mind the #0 issue, and actually these three pages look pretty fun. I’m feeling some serious early Mike Vosberg vibes and that’s a fun thing.

Check out the three pages below.

GeneralsJoes reviews G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #201

The landmark 200th issue of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was the big story what seems like just a few weeks ago, so I was surprised to see the next issue already slated for release this past Wednesday.  I was quite pleasantly surprised, I should say, simply because while I enjoyed issue #200, I didn’t feel like it presented an impactful closure to the current story, and I was hoping to see how things continued to evolve.

As it turns out, issue #201 seems like more of a set up issue, but it’s still a quite enjoyable one.  Check out the full review after the jump.

G.I. Joe comic news from WonderCon 2014

Well, sort of.  IDW Publishing held their panel at WonderCon today, and in attendance were John Barber and Carlos Guzman, who both have pitched in with editing duties for various G.I. Joe titles over the past few years.

Comic Book Resources was in attendance and there was quite a bit said about the upcoming Transformers and G.I. Joe title by Barber and Tom Scioli, mentioning the Free Comic Book Day issue hitting May 3rd.  They also reiterated that G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero will continue as normal.

The “big news” was that the main IDW continuity will pick up in September.  We’ve already seen a teaser image and heard the tagline “Fall of G.I. Joe”, so it sounds like this should hit us in September, so keep an eye out for those solicitations.

Check out the full article at Comic Book Resources.
