In a new twist, IDW is publishing a prose short-story collection of all new G.I. Joe fiction! Max Brooks (author of World War Z and G.I. Joe/Cobra) edits this brand new volume with tales featuring our favorite Joes and Cobras. Aside from some movie tie-ins released in 2009 and the old Find-Your-Fate series, this marks one of the only times that Joe has been featured in prose!
I pre-ordered this book back in December on Amazon.com when it was first listed and I’m waiting for that box to hit my doorstep on Friday! Consider my weekend reading already accounted for!
