IDW Publishing announced this week it will be re-launching its G.I. Joe comic book series with a new creative team and a new focus–G.I. Joe’s cover is blown, and they must now deal with the aftermath, along with a COBRA invasion on U.S. soil.
Written by Fred Van Lente (The Comic Book History of Comics, The Incredible Hercules) with art by Steve Kurth (Ultimate Iron Man, Avengers Vs. X-Men: Consequences), the all-new G.I. Joe series promises to be a turning point for the ongoing adventures and a jumping-on point for new readers. Several alternate covers will also be offered with the release of the new #1 issue, slated for release in comic book stores on February 13, 2013.
And this month Paramount Pictures released an expanded, international version of the trailer to the new G.I. Joe movie starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Ray Park, and Bruce Willis. Check it out:
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 29, 2013.
