SOLICITATIONS: IDW Limited gets dangerous
Today, IDW Limited announced plans to offer more limited-edition covert action with a deluxe hardcover of DANGER GIRL/G.I. JOE (http://idwlimited.com/series/gi-joe.html). This action-packed crossover will be presented in spectacular fashion with both Black and Red Label editions poised to infiltrate the top shelf of collectors everywhere.
“The great thing about DANGER GIRL/G.I. JOE,” said John Royle, “is you don’t have to know these characters to know you’re going to enjoy this book. This is a perfect jumping-in point and a great read for longtime fans. It’s fun from the first page to the last and that’s exactly what this limited-edition version gives you. From case to cover, it’s all fun and all action!”
DANGER GIRL/G.I.JOE Limited Edition will be presented in two tiers of increasing rarity. The Red Label edition will be limited to just 175 copies, each of which is hand-numbered and signed by DANGER GIRL co-creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell, and series artist John Royle. The Black Label edition will be housed in a hand-built tray case and limited to only 50 copies, with each signed by the same lineup of talented creators and featuring a hand-drawn piece of art from the amazing John Royle.
“DANGER GIRL/G.I.JOE is all about being over-the-top,” said IDW Limited director Jerry Bennington. “The biggest explosions, the most unforgettable Femme Fatales, the ninja-est ninjas! Everything has to be larger-than-life and that’s exactly what IDW Limited delivers with this edition. The awesome cases, the killer new covers, and the amazing artwork from John (Royle). This book EXPLODES off the page. Seriously, we tried to add a detonator but they said something about compliance issues…”
