has posted some surprising news for longtime fans of the original G.I. Joe A Real American Hero
comic series started by Marvel Comics
recently released information on the Gold-level sponsors for Free Comic
Book Day in May 2010. Our book for that level is G.I. JOE 155-1/2, an
all-new story that picks up where the old Marvel series (which stopped
at issue 155) ended. The book leads into a new REAL AMERICAN HERO
series that starts with issue #156. The online cover image wasn't the
final version, though--that one is pictured right here, with art by Augustin Padilla, who's doing the interiors on this new book. The inimitable Larry Hama scripts, of course.
Will it tie into the DDP
books, which took place years after the Joes
were disbanded at the end of the Marvel run? Longtime fans remember that G.I. Joe A Real American Hero
didn't exactly end the way Larry Hama
anticipated, so now we've got something to look forward to as the godfather of G.I. Joe
returns to the very title that defined G.I. Joe from the 1980's until now!
The original continuity is back!!
