IDW Publishing is marketing it as a “send-up” of the animated series, so the tone may not be exactly what you remember.  Although you may have watched them airing daily after school, the animated character versions of GI Joe and the team’s nemesis COBRA is back this week in the first issue of GI Joe: A Real American Hero–Saturday Morning Adventures.  Written by Erik Burnham, the first issue feels more like Superfriends, but artist Dan Schoening and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado have captured the look of the cartoons.  Check out a look inside the first issue below, courtesy of IDW.

It’s light-hearted fun, and even includes a public service message, because, after all, “knowing is half the battle.”

Add GI Joe: A Real American Hero–Saturday Morning Adventures to your comic shop pull list at Elite Comics or your local comic shop.  The first issue is in stores this week.
