Hasbro announced the winner of the G.I. Joe Kindle Worlds Poll this weekend in a surprise post over at Hasbro Pulse. Without further adieu, the winner is…
Bill Nedrow’s Stiletto!
As featured in G.I. Joe Body Count, Stiletto will be joining the ranks of the G.I. Joe team in action figure form in 2016! Congratulations to Bill on this amazing opportunity to see his character “come to life” in plastic form. Well done, sir!
By now, many of you are probably familiar with Amazon.com’s Kindle Worlds program. In a nutshell, it is a platform that allows authors to write and publish short-stories and novels based upon their favorite copyrighted works.
It was just over a year ago that Amazon announced that G.I. Joe was now part of the Kindle Worlds program and in the intervening months publication of Joe fiction saw solid growth. Predictably, however, the selection was heavily dominated by the A Real American Hero era with novels featuring the further adventures of characters such as Duke, Scarlett, and Snake Eyes. However, when one considers the history of G.I. Joe there were many eras that were left untouched and neglected. Until now.
