Media Release — Starting in January, G.I. JOE: Cobra II continues the momentum of danger and intrigue in the aftermath of the wildly successful G.I. JOE: Cobra series. Under license by HASBRO, G.I. JOE: Cobra II #1 is the first of a new four-part story that reveals the fate awaiting Chuckles, the new fan-favorite JOE sent to infiltrate COBRA.
“G.I. JOE: Cobra was our riskiest launch-straying furthest from the kinds of stories people are used to reading in G.I. JOE comics. The creators made bold choices and every one of them paid off,” said IDW editor, Andy Schmidt. “These are such great characters that we always wanted to do more with them and once again Mike, Chris, and Antonio have delivered. The first series was great, but this one will blow you away.”
Following what IGN.com called “an instant classic,” writers Mike Costa and Christos N. Gage craft an exciting new miniseries that introduces a brand new Joe and sends her on a deadly rescue mission to save Chuckles. The masterful art of Antonion Fuso gives new layers to the subtle yet undeniable divide that fans have witnessed within COBRA, highlighted in the celebrated G.I. JOE: Cobra Special #1. Covers will be provided by both Fuso and the great Howard Chaykin.
With G.I. JOE: Cobra II, the creative team continues to blend succinct storytelling with innovative visuals. Raves io9.com, “If you’re looking for the latest smart, inventive reboot the place to look . . . is G.I. JOE: Cobra.”
G.I. JOE: Cobra II #1 (of 4) ($3.99, 32 pages) debuts this January. Diamond order code: NOV09 0809
