See, THIS is why fans of a property should be excited about a “movie year” even if they’re not necessarily excited about the movie. When G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra hit theaters, obviously not many folks enjoyed it, but what they didn’t really understand was that the movie release paved the way for a lot of other cool things they may not have gotten otherwise (like G.I. Joe: Resolute, for instance).
Looks like the same could be true this summer! Over on his blog, Disciples of Boltax, Jim Sorenson reveals that he is currently working on a G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero animation model book, with hopes to release it this summer. He reveals that there has been an unusually large number of animation model sheets out there, and seems enthusiastic and optimistic that the book will be chock full of cool things for Joe fans to enjoy.
Transformers fans will likely recognize Sorenson from his work on the various Transformers AllSpark Almanacs and Addendums, and if we get the same attention to detail and presentation as those books offer, this should be a great one to add to your G.I. Joe library!
Check out the blog right here, and also you European fans, Jim Sorenson will be attending Roll Out Roll Call 3, so hit him up there and find out the skinny on his upcoming book. I’m looking forward to it!
