G.I. Joe is a comic book series by IDW Publishing, based upon Hasbro's G.I. Joe characters and toy line.

The series was marketed as three ongoing series (G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: Origins, G.I. Joe: Cobra II), two mini-series (G.I. Joe: Cobra and G.I. Joe: Hearts And Minds) and a small series of one-shots (G.I. Joe: Special). An issue #0, was released in October 2008, containing three stand-alone stories which acted as previews for the main G.I. Joe series, G.I. Joe: Origins, and G.I. Joe: Cobra. A new mini-series, G.I. Joe: Infestation was released in March 2011.[1]

In the 12th issue of G.I. Joe: Cobra II, the original Cobra Commander was killed. This ended all three original ongoing series and resulted in a stand-alone G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil War #0. This issue spawned two new G.I. Joe and G.I. Joe: Cobra ongoing series, and a G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes ongoing series which took the storyline into a new direction.[2]

IDW's approach to G.I. Joe is similar to their launch of The Transformers, where the history is rebooted and the creators have access to characters from any era of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero line.

Licensing

Devil's Due Publishing lost the G.I. Joe comics license in January 2008, and published their last G.I. Joe comic in July with G.I. Joe: America's Elite #36.[3] The license was then given to IDW Publishing, which was officially announced on May 29 the same year.[4] IDW's G.I. Joe series is a complete reboot of the property, ignoring the continuity from the Marvel and Devil's Due incarnations of the comic.

When IDW began publishing a continuation of A Real American Hero from Marvel Comics separately, Hasbro said that the Devil's Due continuity was no longer canonical: "Fans can read it according to their personal preference, but we are currently taking the brand in a direction that does not take the Devil’s Due story into account".[5] IDW will lose the right to publish G.I Joe by the end of 2022

Main canon continuity (2008–2018)

Issue #0 was released in October 2008, containing three stand-alone stories which acted as previews for the main G.I. Joe series, G.I. Joe: Origins and G.I. Joe: Cobra.[6] It was originally solicited as G.I. Joe: A New Beginning #0.

The main series of the new IDW continuity of G.I. Joe. It chronicles the new conflict between the G.I. Joe Team and Cobra as presented by the new IDW continuity. Contrary to what was initially believed, original G.I. Joe comic writer Larry Hama is not the writer for this series. Instead, veteran comic book writer Chuck Dixon is penning this series.[7] 27 issues were released. In addition, a G.I. Joe: Special was published that was to be an ongoing series of one-shot issues. Each comic was to serve to focus on a particular character in the continuity established by IDW. The series was to be done with rotating creative teams. However, the series had only seen one issue - a Helix issue (August 2009). It seems now that many of the stories intended to take place in Special issues were transferred over to the Origins series.[8]
A mini-series that later became an ongoing series. The series was penned by original G.I. Joe writer Larry Hama, who was initially thought to be the scribe for the main series. The series explores the formation of G.I. Joe and the personalities that make up the team.[6] 23 issues were released.
A four-issue mini-series that details the status quo of Cobra for the continuity by IDW as Joe member Chuckles spies on the threat. The story is written by Christos Gage and Mike Costa and art by Antonio Fuso. The covers are illustrated by Howard Chaykin.[6] The story was continued with a one-shot as part of the G.I. Joe: Cobra: Special series.[9] The story focused on Tomax and Xamot.[10]
Originally a four-issue mini-series, which was a direct continuation from the previous Cobra mini-series and one-shot special. It was then continued as an ongoing series titled G.I. Joe: Cobra (without the II), starting with #5.[11] 13 issues were released. In addition, during this time, a second G.I. Joe: Cobra: Special was published with the focus being on Chameleon.[10]
A five-issue mini-series, written by Max Brooks.[12] Each issue focuses on two stories, each a day in the life of a Joe and a Cobra.[13]
A two-issue mini-series. The two-issue IDW mini-series Infestation, which started in January 2011, is in essence a two-part bookend story, with the first issue showing the origins of the event in G.I. Joe: Infestation and the second finishing up the story after the G.I. Joe series. There was some connection in the final issue of Infestation with other IDW properties like Transformers, Star Trek and Ghostbusters.

Second series

Released in April 2011. It was released as an issue #0, which was the starting point for two new ongoing series, G.I. Joe and G.I. Joe: Cobra, and a G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes ongoing series, all launched the next month.[2]
Started in May 2011. It was the second regular G.I. Joe ongoing series and starts from the G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil War #0, with the previous G.I. Joe series ending after the death of Cobra commander. 21 issues were released.
Started in May 2011. It was the third Cobra series and the second ongoing that starts from the G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil War #0, with the previous Cobra series ending after the death of Cobra commander. 21 issues were released. (IDW considers this series to be volume two.) In addition, a one-shot issue was published, titled Cobra Annual 2012: The Origin of Cobra Commander, that explores the origins of the new Cobra Commander.[14]
Started in May 2011. It starts from the G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil War #0. Starting with issue 13, the title of the series was changed to G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow. 21 issues were released.
A two-issue mini-series which was released in March 2012. The two-issue IDW mini-series Infestation 2, which started in January 2012, is in essence a two-part bookend story, with the first issue showing the origins of the event that continues within Infestation 2: G.I. Joe and the second finishing up the story after the G.I. Joe series. There are some connections in the final issue of Infestation 2 to other IDW titles such as Transformers, 30 Days of Night, Dungeons & Dragons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Danger Girl.[14]

Third series

Starting in February 2013, three new G.I. Joe ongoing series were launched to replace the old ones.

Started in February 2013. It is the third regular G.I. Joe ongoing series. 15 issues were released.
Started in March 2013. 14 issues were released.

In addition to the 5-issue main series and the prelude issue, there were eight one-shot issues related to the Revolution event, one of which focused on the G.I. Joe team specifically.
A new ongoing series of G.I. Joe started publishing in December 2016.[19] Nine issues were released.
Continuing from the Revolution crossover mini-series, Revolutionaries is an ongoing series that started in December 2016. The comic sees the appearance of major characters from various IDW comics, with the core team including the G.I. Joe member Mayday.[19] Eight issues were released
A one-shot issue that saw both the M.A.S.K. and G.I. Joe teams join forces against the criminal organization known as V.E.N.O.M.[20]
The 6-issue crossover event, which is a sequel to Revolution, started publishing in August 2017. Once again, the crossover includes Transformers, Action Man, M.A.S.K., Rom, and Micronauts, with six one-shots related to the crossover. First Strike was preceded by a zero issue in June.
This comic started in December 2017, following the events of First Strike and saw the uniting of G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K..[21] Eight issues were initially planned,[22] but the series was cancelled after the third issue.[23]

Snake Eyes: Deadgame

Main article: Snake Eyes: Deadgame

Snake Eyes: Deadgame was announced in July 2019, and will be co-written and co-drawn by Rob Liefeld. He considered Snake Eyes as both an icon and "bucket list" for him, stating the character is "Wolverine, Deadpool and Spider-Man rolled into one amazing character for an entire generation of fans that thrilled to his adventures in comics and cartoons and hung on his every toy release! My parents drove me all over the county to get me G.I. Joe action figures as a kid. These were my first and most favorite toys. Working with Hasbro and all my friends at IDW has been a blast so far. I can’t wait to get this work out into the public! If you enjoyed my recent Marvel work, this will match or exceed it!"[34]
