IDW Publishing had a great hook with the Transformers movie adaptation, and it’s going to repeat the formula with a four-issue adaptation of the upcoming G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra.  The series claims to give readers an exclusive peek at what to expect in costume design and plot twists.

“G.I. JOE was an essential part of my childhood. I saw COBRA agents around every schoolyard corner,” said Andy Schmidt in a prepared statement, IDW’s G.I. JOE editor. “It is an honor to be part of an intensely fun and uniquely relevant group of characters. As a lifelong G.I. JOE fan, to be associated with the wide release of the new G.I. JOE film in particular is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

The weekly series is written by Denton Tipton and goes on sale the first week of July, 2009.
