Dixon and Gulacy Declassify G.I. Joe: Special Missions!

As part of the re-launch of G.I. Joe comics, based on the iconic brand from Hasbro, IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce G.I. Joe: Special Missions! A new ongoing series helmed by comics legends Chuck Dixon and Paul GulacyG.I. Joe: Special Missions chronicles the G.I. Joe team members still operating undercover in the wake of many of their identities being exposed to the public. Tying directly into the story of Fred Van Lente and Steve Kurth’s G.I. Joe, Special Missions’ first arc shows how the evil Baroness ends up high and dry in the eponymous G.I. Joe book.

As the raven-haired saboteur extraordinaire martials her forces and attempts to find her way back into the fold of multi-national terror organization Cobra, Scarlett must put together an elite team to covertly de-fang the storied villainess! Calling on the best covert operators the G.I. Joe team has to offer, readers will be treated to adventures starring beloved characters like Beach Head, Mainframe, Tripwire, Hard Drive, Ice Berg, and Stalker, just to name a few!

If all that weren’t enough, the inaugural issue will feature a cover by Brandon Peterson, a wraparound cover by Jamal Igle, and a special Untold Tales of G.I. Joe cover by Jim Rugg!
