The new G.I. Joe #1, out this week from IDW, kicks off a very bold and very different chapter for fan favourite toyline and comic series. Written by Paul Allor with art by Chris Ecenhuis, colors by Brittany Peer, and letters by Neil Uyetake, this new series is set in a world in which Cobra rules supreme, there are still some who are willing to stand up to the totalitarian (toy-talitarian, surely?) world they now all find themselves living in.
Check out the preview below and read more about this new direction and the reasons behind this dramatic reboot from, Michael Kelly, VP of Global Publishing for Hasbro here.
Tyranny is on the rise as Cobra topples governments and spreads its ruthless power across the globe. In these trying times, desperate measures are taken. The new G.I. Joe program recruits civilian spies and saboteurs: ordinary people, living in occupied territories, who will put their lives on the line to strike back through clandestine but high-impact missions. Join these new recruits as they resist Cobra control, fight to make a better world for all, and find out just what they are capable of.
