Skybound and Hasbro have revealed new variant covers of Duke #1 from writer Joshua Williamson, artist Tom Reilly, and colorist Jordie Bellaire. The debut issue of the Energon Universe’s highly anticipated new limited series arrives in comic book shops on December 27, 2023.
Codename: G.I. JOE begins HERE! Duke promises to tell the story you’ve never read before – the origins of G.I. Joe and Cobra in a world grappling with the arrival of the Autobots and Decepticons. When Conrad S. Hauser (codename DUKE) investigates the mysteries behind the Transformers robots, the answers will lead to the birth of forces for good and evil that the world never imagined.
The first of four action-packed G.I. Joe miniseries that will introduce the best and worst humanity has to offer in the Energon Universe, Duke #1 launches in December and will be followed by the launch of Cobra Commander #1 from writer Joshua Williamson, artist Andrea Milana and colorist Annalisa Leoni in January 2024. These miniseries promise to set the stage for a fresh new take on G.I. JOE, Cobra and the iconic characters that you only think you know in a shared universe with Transformers and Void Rivals!
Duke #1 (of 5) (Lunar Codes Below | $4.99) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, December 27, 2023.
