IDW Publishing announced a brand new G.I. JOE series, G.I. JOE: Sierra Muerte by creator Michel Fiffe. Fiffe, who is the creator of the indie comic Copra, will write, draw, letter, and color this new G.I. JOE series.
IDW describes the series as “a bombastic-yet-personal, gritty-yet-colorful account of Hasbro’s iconic G.I. Joe team’s quintessential mission.”
G.I. JOE: Sierra Muerte will see a core team of JOEs made up of classic heroes go rogue on a hunt-and-rescue double mission. Their main goal is to try and stop Cobra Commander. However, there’s going to be lots of twists and turns as Storm Shadow will go AWOL. The JOE’s will risk their life, love, and honor in what is being described as a “fast-paced, one-stop-shop adventure.”
“The opportunity to put my own spin on this iconic franchise was impossible to resist,” says Michel Fiffe. “I wanted to take all of my favorite players and give them a chance to shine in their own unique ways. By creating the entire package, I tap into the personalized core of this classic cast. Love and loss, combat and cunning, cheap laughs and high stakes – this is everything I want in a G.I. Joe comic.”
“It is a true honor to be working with Michel Fiffe, one of the industry’s most unique and talented voices, on this project,” says IDW Associate Publisher David Hedgecock. “Michel’s love and passion for classic G.I. Joe shines through with every new page he turns in.”
The new series is due out sometime in the Spring of 2019. Michel Fiffe will be on hand at New York Comic Con to promote the new series. He will have sketched prints, promotional posters, and autograph sessions available.
