Wondercon was held this weekend, with IDW in attendance, and they spoke a bit about their G.I. Joe titles. Newsrama was there as well and gives us a full report here. Some items of note were as follows:
- There will be a 4-issue “prequel” mini-series leading up to the film, written by Chuck Dixon and with art by SL Gallant
- Each issue will focus on a different character: Duke, Destro, Baroness, and Snake Eyes
- The mini-series will start in March and go through June
- After the film a Snake Eyes “follow up” is planned, co-written by the actor playing Snake Eyes in the film, Ray Park. The other co-writer is Kevin Van Hook, and SL Gallant will be doing the art chores for that issue as well.
I’m actually very excited about this…beginning this month we could be getting some interesting insight into the movie universe. Pretty cool! Thanks to Shin Densetsu of HissTank for the info!
