Classic G.I. Joe Comics get Reprinted, Thanks to IDW

Yo Joe! This November, IDW will bring G.I. Joe fans never-before reprinted issues of the original G.I. Joe series, and Andy Schmidt, IDW's editor for all things Joe-related, couldn't be happier, saying in their press release, "It's a shame that these industry-changing issues have never been collected previously-and obviously we're extremely proud to be the ones to bring them back into print." Classic G.I. Joe Volume 6 will feature classic stories by the master writer of the G.I. Joe characters himself, Larry Hama. Hama himself was very enthusiastic about the project, saying, "I think it's terrific that these issues will finally be reprinted. Rod Whigham (artist) was really hitting his stride in these arcs and he was getting top-flight inking by a roster of classy pros. And then, of course, there's Sgt. Slaughter, Zarana, and the secret of the Terrordromes!" Volume 6 is just the beginning, as future releases will include never-before reprinted material! A treat for Joe fans new and old!
