IDW held their SDCC 2019 panel and featured several G.I. Joe titles. The whole panel was 20 minutes long with just 5 minutes of content belonging to the G.I. Joe franchise. Nevertheless, there was a significant amount of info drop during the panel.
It is also worth noting that the Snake Eyes variant covers did not make it to the booth as exclusives, due to a production issue.
- Transformers vs. G.I. Joe
- G.I. Joe 2019
- G.I. Joe: Snake Hunt
- Snake Eyes: Deadgame
You can read a detailed description about each title, after the jump.
Transformers vs. G.I. Joe
- At the near end of the Transformers portion of the panel, the team talked about the SDCC 2019 exclusive, limited edition, hardcover Transformers vs. G.I. Joe.
- The comic book will be signed by Tom Scioli at the SDCC 2019 IDW Booth.
G.I. Joe 2019
- New series by Paul Allor and Chris Evenhuis.
- Will take G.I. Joe in a very different direction.
- Michael Kelly’s message to G.I. Joe fans: “As long as Larry Hama wants to write ‘A Real American Hero’ [series], he can write ‘A Real American Hero’ [series]. *audience cheer*. “Fear not. However, I think that we have a responsibility to these brands to evolve into new stories. To make them exciting, and interesting, and to cater to new audiences as well as to the existing audiences.“
- The new series is inspired by some events from World War II. Winston Churchill recruited civilians to go behind enemy lines and sabotage.
- Incredible ability to carry on against all odds. That is the story that is told here.
- Couple of pages shown on screen. Cobra “police” and an incident at a convenience store.
G.I. Joe: Snake Hunt
- By Larry Hama.
- Very ambitious project.
- It will feature every living G.I. Joe.
- Got two Snake Eyes running around including Dawn.
- Another member of the G.I. Joe is taking the mantle of Snake Eyes to make Cobra think that [original] Snake Eyes is still around.
- Cobra is aware of this and is hunting who they think is the original Snake Eyes. They are sending a full force to hunt down SE and G.I. Joe must send a team equal to the Cobra force. Which includes quite a lot of them.
Snake Eyes: Deadgame
- Coming Soon.
- [Yes, folks… that’s all they said.]
