The ’80s live on in this all-new series that spins out of the FCBD issue 155-1/2 and hearkens back to the beloved JOE comics from your childhood! Larry Hama returns to script Real American Hero even as COBRA wins the bid to provide internal security for a terrorist-beleaguered USA. First order of business: put out a secret assassination order on the disbanded G.I. Joes. SNAKE EYES isn’t taking it lying down and overreacts maybe just a tiny bit…

  1. Larry Hama Back NUFF SAID.
    Thank-You IDW , For Finally Putting A Real American Hero Back On Active Duty

  2. 155 1/2 was a really fun issue.  I’m looking forward to this, putting the fun back in Joe!

  3. I’m kinda surprised they’re putting this out before IDW finishes publishing the reprints of the end of the original series. A lot happned in those final issues and they’re extremely tough to find these days.

  4. 155 1/2 sucked me back in! I stopped reading the initial series around #75 but feel like the next 75 issues weren’t needed to enjoy Larry Hama’s return to the book.

  5. I’m excited about this, but the art in the 1/2 issue was really not good. Hope it gets batter.

  6. I don’t think I had realized just how much I have missed classic G.I. Joe vs. Cobra stories until I read this issue.  Thank you to everyone involved with the book for reminding me.  This was great fun.
