Media for the delayed G.I. Joe sequel continues on this week with two international posters featuring the characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.
As the San Diego Comic-Con draws ever near, Hasbro is showing off the special edition/exclusive toys it will have at its booth during the show. First up, G.I. JOE, with a pretty cool looking HISS tank.
Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) returns to San Diego Comic-Con in 2009 with its iconic properties that have entertained fans of all ages for decades. Hasbroâ€™s expansive portfolio of brands that have become part of the global pop-culture such as G.I.

Following are the highlights of Hasbroâ€™s Comic-Con showcase:
This week, IDW Publishing sends Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Doctor Who #1, Fallen Angel: Reborn #1, G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #, and The Last Resort #1.
IDW Publishing has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Angel: Not Fade Away #3, From the Ashes #2, G.I. Joe: Origins #5, G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #2 (of 4), and Star Trek: Crew #5.
I love sneak peeks. They get me excited about the next batch of comics coming out in the near future.Â Today, IDW Publishing sent us a sneak peek of G.I. Joe Movie Prequel TPB, G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation TPB, G.I. Joe #6, G.I. Joe, Vol. 1 TPB, Pebbles, Book 2: Daddyâ€™s Girl, Sir Apropos of Nothing HC, Star Trek: Missionâ€™s End #4, and Transformers: All Hail Megatron #12. Some are just covers, but a few are giving it up for your enjoyment.
October was an interesting month for comics as the industry saw an increase in revenue of 9% over last year at this time.Â At first it may appear to be due to larger sales, but when one examines the Top 50 books, 18 titles had a price point of $3.99, or roughly 36% of the books shipping for the month.
The least expensive book was GI JOE: A New Beginning #0, which cost $1.00.Â The most expensive was Gemstone’s Uncle Scrooge #380 with the high price of $7.99.Â While there are a lot of $3.99 books, $2.99 still rules the roost (barely), but I really hope the big publishers don’t look at that Gemstone book, and think it would be a good idea to raise prices that high.
