Comics: G.I. Joe Relaunching in February

If DC and Marvel’s relaunches were not enough for you, IDW has now announced they will be relaunching their flagship title G.I. Joe. The new series is described as follows:

The anti-terrorist titans will be up against a new threat: publicity! With their formerly secret identities compromised, Duke must lead his squad of Real American Heroes up against the legendarily evil COBRA in the public eye.

The series will be written by Fred Van Lente (The Comic Book History of Comics, The Incredible Hercules) with art by Steve Kurth (Ultimate Iron Man, Avengers Vs. X-Men: Consequences).

“As a longtime G.I. JOE fan it’s very exciting to be able to launch the series in a bold new direction,” said Writer Van Lente “With a new status quo that develops organically from events in the current ongoing series. In the first arc, Homefront, the G.I. JOE team gets a new (but familiar) commanding officer, a new (and unfamiliar) public role — and discover that Cobra has brought their war to America in a major way for the first time. We hit the ground running with all-out combat on U.S. soil.”

The series will be in stores February 13, 2013. Will you be reading it?
