‘Celebrating 40 years of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comics, this giant-length special issue features 22 different fan-fave artists taking on the classic G.I. Joe: ARAH #21 (the original silent issue—“Silent Interlude”), including SL Gallant, Netho Diaz, Andrew Lee Griffith, and many more! Each artist will draw a single page of this seminal masterpiece in their own unique style, based on Living Legend Larry Hama’s original layouts.
Additionally, the issue will contain stories and essays by creators who were influenced by Hama as well as a fourth wall-breaking short story written by Larry himself, celebrating his unparalleled four decades of work on G.I. Joe: RAH.’
