NYCC ’17: IDW’s GI Joe Crossover Will Feature The Six Million Dollar Man
by Hannah Means Shannon
IDW have announced during New York Comic Con that they are going to be producing a four part crossover series working with Dynamite Entertainment starting in January 2018.
The GI Joe/Six Million Dollar Man series will be scripted by Ryan Ferrier (TMNT: Dimension X, Rocko’s Modern Life) with art by SL Gallant, who worked on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, alongside legendary G.I. Joe writer, Larry Hama, for over 75 issues.
To say Shannon and I are having fun with bringing these two iconic properties together would be a massive understatement. We are going full-tilt and no-holds-barred with this story. It’s everything we love about G.I. JOE, the classic characters, and massive action, colliding face-first with the steel-infused, secret agent coolness of The Six Million Dollar Man. We are chomping at the bit for everyone to read this comic with a kung fu grip.
“G.I. JOE and Steve Austin, The Six Million Dollar Man, are two pop culture mainstays who have influenced the comics industry for years,” said Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “We’ve had great runs with our Six Million Dollar Man series, and long been admirers of IDW’s ongoing G.I. JOE series. Now is the time for these two to cross-over and we couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating on this event series, and working with our good friends at IDW.”
Variant covers will be provided by John Cassaday, Ken Lashley, and Mike Zeck. Special action figure covers will also be may orderable from your local comic shop. Subject to availability while supplies last.
The cross-over event 2018 kicks off this January.
