As we mentioned yesterday, the Transformers/G.I. Joe universe is now at Skybound Entertainment, and the question on everyone’s mind has been, “Does this mean G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, is going to get a reboot?” No, dear reader. In fact, it will continue the storyline with Larry Hama and Chris Mooneyham at the wheel.
A new era for G.I. Joe begins in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #301 with this jumping on point for new readers as your favorite characters – Duke, Scarlett, Roadblock, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, Serpentor and more – are back for new battles, new friends, new enemies and…THE RETURN OF THE ORIGINAL SNAKE-EYES!
“I am delighted to be continuing the saga of G.I. Joe with the good folks at Skybound and totally amped to be taking the G.I. Joe team to issue #301 and beyond,” said Larry Hama in a press release from Skybound Entertainment. “Little did I know back in 1982 that I would be associated with the Real American Hero for over 40 years. My thanks to the whole crew at Skybound for allowing me to continue to chronicle the exploits of characters who have become like a family to me.”
“Several years ago, a fan at SDCC asked me how long Larry Hama would be writing G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO comics,” recalled Michael Kelly, VP of Global Publishing at Hasbro in the same press release. “My response was the only appropriate answer for someone in my position: ‘for as long as Larry wants to keep writing them.’ It’s exciting to be continuing this journey that started back in 1982, and I’m grateful to the great team at Skybound for helping me keep that promise.”
G.I. Joe+: A Real American Hero #301 arrives on November 14, 2023 – which is a Tuesday, not a Wednesday, something important to make note of.
